Joonbug.com and FashionIndie.com took the NYC party scene by storm when throwing a benefit for The Society of Independent Fashion Journalists at Espace this month. Naming the event PROM: Class of 2010, I had no idea what was in store, but like any good New Yorker, I don’t need much of an excuse to put on a party dress and get ready to expect the unexpected.
What an evening! The space was definitely prom worthy, as we’re the guests who took the dress attire very seriously –I even overheard the girl in the ladies room say she is wearing her dress from senior year. Impressive considering mine should be burned (I still can not believe I ever wore a sea-foam green Jessica McClintok princess dress –by choice). Great 80s and 90s classics had the dance floor packed; there was even a performance by the St. John Cheerleaders! They really delivered all the perks of prom, with the added bonus of being old enough to enjoy an open bar. The only thing missing was the photo booth, I’ll just have to keep my fingers crossed for next year.
