I have decided to start a group for those of us that like to get fancy. I’ve noticed that there are many people out there that want to dress up but don’t have a special occasion to do so for or feel uncomfortable being the only one dressed up on a typical night out. This is for those people. Both men and women.
I am going to arrange meet-ups around Los Angeles (for now) for people to come together, have a drink, have some food, meet people and have fun. It won’t necessarily be at a fancy place… why not go bowling or miniature golfing or to a diner or a taco stand while suited up? There was a time when most people were in suits and nice dresses throughout the day, this is a chance to go back to that time for at least a few hours.
The idea of these meet-ups isn’t to dress up in a vintage or retro costume, but rather to dress up for something that isn’t deemed a special occasion and see how that feels. Dress up because you want to, not because you have to. Because you finally get to.
So dust off that suit you bought to wear to a wedding last year and haven’t worn since, or that cocktail dress you wore for your birthday and come hang out.
Please like the Facebook Page for further updates and to see when the meet-ups will be. I am trying to gauge how many people will come before setting up the first event so like it soon and spread the word!
What not to wear to a job interview, unless you’re auditioning for Pearl Jam. #needsandwants #fishtail #flannels #availablesoon #girlfriendjeans #parentsjustdontunderstand #madeincanada
