engaging in gentrification

a few weeks ago destructor and i braved the eastbound traffic (on a weeknight) to visit our favorite little gentrified neighborhood: the arts district. (funny! their homepage readily provides a link called "loft info")

what were we doing there, you might ask? well...what else? to attend a loft party.

let me specify: a fashion party at a boutique (yes, of course they carry vintage) in the molino street lofts. it can't get anymore gentrified than this.

wait! it can. it gets better. it was catered by a small vegan gourmet food company called spork foods. i had very healthy, organic and vegan "mexican" that night - rice and beans and a potato burrito topped with tangy guacamole sauce. it was actually pretty good.

and free dewar's and reed's ginger ale...no picture though. it wasn't that exciting.

i loved that they had pinatas hanging everywhere. i am not sure if this was part of the theme or if the store always has them.

i used this table to eat. the photographer (squid) used it to take pictures. this was also part of the "runway" for the models.

many of them almost ate it while climbing onto the table. they look fierce, don't they? (photos by squid)

as posh would probably say, it was "MAY-jah."

i also purchased a vintage clutch by "accident" (not pictured - but here are destructor's shoes again). bye bye hip concrete floor...
