Big Band Dance!

Last Saturday, McKay and I went to a forties-style dance for an early Valentine's, and it was a blast. It was all World War II/Wartime themed. Synthesis played all night, and there were a few people who sang songs from the forties for us, like "Moon River" and "It Don't Mean a Thing" and "Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy." I went a bit crazy getting myself all dolled up. McKay did try to find a pair of suspenders, so I wasn't the only one!There were also a LOT of very talented swing dancers there as well. I wish I had some pictures or better clips of them, it was amazing! McKay and I were one of the less coordinated couples, but we still had so much fun.

Here's Synthesis, the big band.

Some fun "advertisements" at our table.

Here's us all dolled up (okay, me all dolled up). You can't tell in this picture very well that I've got an awesome victory roll on the side of my hair, so I added a little clip where you can see it in motion (I need validation, I spent an hour on it!), and also a clip of the music. If you look on the right side of the clip, you can sort of see some of the swing dancers who were really good. They were the only ones brave enough to be up dancing while everyone else was sitting and enjoying the singing :)

I can't help adding this too: a couple of my friends and I went to a warehouse sale for Shade Clothing, and got everything for 75% off and even more! This was my loot!
