You know, if I didn’t have the ability to laugh at myself, Saturday would have been a pretty horrible night out on the town. Thankfully everything ended nicely, and my head didn’t explode as I feared it might in the beginning of the night. But for a while there, it was looking like my good time was going down the tubes.
Long story short, while we were standing in line to get in, a couple synapses fired in my brain and I realized that I didn’t have my ID with me. Oh my f*cking lord. I am such a flippin’ idiot!!
While I must give props to Ruby Skye for refusing to let me in without an ID – it is the law, after all – I was pretty darn annoyed that I wasn’t granted entrance. After a little negotiation with security about what would happen upon my return, my four guests were let in the club and I was on my way back to Berkeley to get the proof that I’m older than 21.
I made it back in time to catch the end of the show then party the night away. Fortunately the boyfriend caught the show on video (at end of post) so I was able to see what I missed.
All in all it was a fun night. However, next time I go out I’m going to triple check that I have my ID.
The models wore Designs by Lulu for their first trip down the runway – which was a half-circle walkway in front of the DJ booth. The pieces in the Designs by Lulu are fun, flirty dresses with a modern vintage feel. They’d be great to wear to a spring wedding or a fun night out on the town.
For the second round, the models wore pieces by Francisco Castro. These were a little more “elegant” and would work well at an evening event that called for a more subdued look.
