The Night That Never Was




AA Sexuali-Tank, F21 mesh bra, A|X double-wrap belt, Frye boots


Me, Fiance, Clouds of Tulle, and her bf Mike wanted to try out this new restaurant/bar by our house.  I wore this.  Fiance wore shorts and his brand new black velcro Sperry Topsiders from Gilt.

We arrived at said restaurant/bar and handed our IDs to the man at the front.



"I'm sorry guys, I can't let you in wearing that."

"Wearing what?" Fiance asked.

"That," he said, gesturing at the shorts.  "With those," he continued, pointing to the shoes.



Defeated, we left the establishment.  Fiance, now on a mission, wanted to go home to change and then come back.  Since our house was only a couple minutes away, we headed back home for a wardrobe change.  

Now adorned with Levi's Capital E jeans and white Gucci loafers, we made our second attempt.



"Aw, guys.  I can't let you in wearing that.  Sorry, I should have told you last time."

"WHAT NOW?"

"You gotta be wearing a collared shirt," he said pointing at Clouds-of-Tulle's boyfriend.  

"He's wearing a tshirt," I said, pointing at a guy I could see enjoying a drink inside.

"Yeah, but he's been in here since happy hour.  Dress code is different."



FOR GOD'S SAKE.

Mike was wearing a striped vneck shirt layered over another shirt with a studded belt and True Religion jeans.  In other words, he was wearing a legitimately styled OUTFIT.  It was by no means "too casual" or "messy."

Granted, the bouncer was quite polite and truly seemed apologetic, but seriously?  SERIOUSLY?  What makes a collared shirt from Express Men (or somewhere equally unoriginal) a more acceptable shirt to wear?  Is a collared shirt necessarily more dressy than a non-collared shirt?  No.  Is a collared shirt necessarily more stylish than a non-collared shirt?  No.

Cursing Houston and its fashion-lameness, we went back home and made drinks in the kitchen. 



On another matter-

  10. Ugh dresscodes are just as bad in Texas as they are in California! I feel ya girl, nothing like a wasted outfit and night because a bouncer doesn't understand that a nice shirt beats out a crappy collared shirt.

  24. you should mention the name of this place so I won't go there! It sounds more racially motivated than really about the clothes.

  25. Haha, that policy is so ridic! You think they'd make exceptions for a clearly styled ensemble. llaammee. That's when you know the place is clueless and just trying to be high end.

    I'm loving your dress. Could never pull off the showing bra but got mad respect for those who can! And Phi #2's skirt is so adore! I can't believe its F21, love it!

  29. Physik Abituraufgabennatural impotence treatmentAt the moment here in North Norfolk, it's breezy but dry. Later this afternoon it is expected to get windy and wet, due to the tail end of Hurricane Bill moving across from the Irish Sea/Atlantic sea coasts, to the North Sea. Fortunately for us, by the time it gets here, Bill will be almost blowed out, but the rain will be welcome.

  30. Following a series of bizarre circumstances, I woke up one day in 2007 with a greater understanding of life, a powerful shift in attitude, and my very own edgewater view. It is from this domestic vantage point that I was able to create a collection of photographs made up of over a year's worth of photos that share a particular perspective ... a similar water's edge subject - approximately the same time of day - on many different mornings in 2008.
