What I Wore- Bounce Night

Look y’all fashion blogs are serious business. I mean why get dressed in the morning if you aren’t going to painstakingly document every minute detail of your outfit? Don’t you know that the internetz solely exists for women all over the world to show off what they bought at Forever 21 and how they tried to make it look more expensive by pairing it with a Dillard’s handbag purchased on sale at TJ Maxx?

*Ahem* Okay clearly I try not to take myself too seriously.

When I threw the question out “Should I do a what I wore to bounce night post?” I received a resounding yes, including a message “Write it or I’ll write it for you” from Chris Trew. If you aren’t familiar with his work Chris is a comedian living in Austin but went to high school in Covington. He did a hilarious recap of my night out  on his site that I insist everyone read.

So who did we go see? Ricky B is a bounce legend and it was certainly evident why at this show. It’s always fun to hear songs live that you remember listening to in grade school.

Partners n’ Crime were great too. They’ve been around forever and put on a great show.

Someone made flyers of Magnolia Shorty and threw them off the stage. This sort of looked like a temporary memorial to me so I had to take a picture. So sad and absolutely unnecessary when people are murdered.

So what to expect if you’ve never been? Get ready for a workout.  My thighs are almost always sore the next day, a sure sign that I had fun.

Okay so I don’t really stretch beforehand but it wouldn’t hurt. However I do wear clothes with a lot of stretch. Leggings and bounce night are BFFs. And since I’m a white girl with no butt I keep it covered. No need to scare people with my pasty white legs.

Representing my dawg. No seriously, my greyhound’s name is Nadia. 

Going hands free is important so keep the handbag to a minimum. This bag is perfect since it is large enough to fit camera, phone, ID and keys but still sit nicely just under the arm. You don’t want a big purse swinging around when you are trying to pop, lock and drop it.

  • Thanks for the great comments y’all! If I actually went out more I’d do more posts like this. Sadly my social calendar isn’t that exciting.

  • Bounce is totally a workout! Last time we went to a show to see Katey Red & Big Freedia, I couldn’t bring myself to try to dance in public, but I went to a bounce dance class with Altercation about a month and a half ago and it was fun! But HARD. I’m too white for that methinks. (Although it’s much easier to do when there’s something to lean on than trying to do it standing up or bending over.
