We took a chance on a show we’d never been to before. We drove over an hour, only to get there and find that half the cars had left early and the other half were mostly rat rods (after my husband had said repeatedly throughout the drive, “I hope it’s not just all rat rods…”). Then the gang bangers showed up, and while I admired the zero-tolerance policy the Rockabilly guys were clearly demonstrating, we didn’t want to hang around and witness the enforcement of said policy. I think we were only at the show a total of 20 minutes.
Since the car show was more or less a bust, we had a nice dinner together and hung around in Hollywood until the clubs opened. So this actually turned out to be a club outfit as well as a car show outfit. Much dancing happened, which was very needed after the wonderful dinner we stuffed ourselves with.

I’m not used to seeing me with my eyes closed!
I revisited my new braided chignon/center part hairstyle that I had invented for my Beads post, adding a few additional pins and hairspray to keep everything in place longer. After nearly 12 hours everything still looked exactly as it did when I finished styling it, with zero minutes of maintenance throughout the day/evening. Yes, I love this style. Jewelry is non-existent in this outfit, due to the extreme heat! I didn’t want to fuss with extra stuff sticking to me all day.
I grabbed a blazer on the way out the door, as we had to stop by my office on the way to the show. Even though it was a Saturday, you never know who might be lurking in the building… Good thing, too, since one of my co-workers had dropped in to do a little office decorating, and she had family with her. Not that they would mind, but I tend to not like to show so much skin around colleagues’ children!!
