What I Wore - Bellydancing Edition!

RakStar was invited to dance at a variety show at my favorite coffee shop in the entire world, the Coffee Hag! I was really excited for this performance for a lot of reasons; one, all ten of us would be there performing!, and two, I love the feeling I get dancing at the Hag. It's so fun and positive and exciting and I feel like our energy is always the best there. It's so silly because we dance in the tiniest space, so a lot of funny things happen. But, it helps us to have even more fun.

Here is what I wore! Unfortunately, this picture doesn't show the awesome harem pants that my friend Coley made me, but I was so happy to be wearing them. I got the skirt and coin belt this summer at the Renaissance. My poor coin bra has seen better days and I could really take some time to fix it. I want to make another bra with shells and tassels; that might be my March project.

At the Hag, after we performed. I love it in there; I used to go with my dad all the time when I was little. Such a yummy place!♥

Also, you may have noticed: I'm back in blonde! Yes, I miss the pink, but I'll always go back. Blonde is just where my heart is. I'm leaving on vacation in a week at my hair was at the point where I needed to redo the fuchsia or make a change. I made a change! What do you think? I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out, considering it was still fairly pink & I only used one box of bleach from Hot Topic + a box of blonde from Target.

I'm definitely tired after all the fun tonight, so I'll leave you with one of my favorite songs to bellydance to: Beauty Beats by Beats Antique. Enjoy!


  1. That's so cool that you belly dance. I took one class and it was a blast! But what I really would like to do is find a Bollywood dance class. I want to learn like, a whole routine from an actual Bollywood movie.

    So when you say that you are leaving for vacation in a week, do you mean Japan vaca? Are you going to wear your cute pink arm warmers? Are you going to wear them in Harajuku?!

    And also, your hair looks sooooooo cute. It looks like the perfect blonde. At least it does in the pictures.

  2. I've always wanted to try belly dancing! I know a few belly dancers in the area and have been meaning to check it out.

    I do love the blonde! I just recently went back to blonde and I love it. I added blue, pink or purple streaks next to my ears.

    I can't wait to hear about your vacation!
