Channeling Vivianne from Pretty Woman, I left the office (out the back door) scantily clad in thigh high boots, a wig, my boyfriend’s hat, and an old dress with cutoff sides I found in my closet. I got some dirty looks just like Vivianne did in the movie so… mission accomplished? I know this “costume” was not at all impressive, but I had to do something right before I left for work in the morning, and I just couldn’t think of anything else in such short notice! For the record, I was going to be Cat Woman, but the mask didn’t work out too well. Let’s just say after Sara and I both tried miserably to slide it over my big head, and the best we could do was my afro poking out where the eyes were supposed to be with my cheeks bunched up under the mask like an idiot. I refused to get a new costume and saved the catsuit for the following night for the Grace Jones concert (following post).
My boyfriend traveled all the way from Pennsylvania to meet me at the office for Lauren’s party on Friday in onesie batman pajamas. That’s right, he wore them all the way, and he was quite pleased with himself. We certainly got some attention and laughs on the subway. It was hilarious. Lauren looked beautiful in her well-put flapper attire, while her mom was one of the most glamorous witches I’ve ever seen. Many co-workers made it to the party. We had a great time!
