socks and cat

Back from Portland

The vampire ball was fabulous! Honestly, the best part is just seeing what everyone is wearing. There were 700 people attending the ball and a few came from all over the world (7 different countries if you count the US as one of the countries).

The trip was wonderful. I didn't realize until we got to Portland how much I needed to get away from Seattle. I spend too much time here. Getting away is good for me. The shopping in Portland was so good! They have a giant mall there with 3 levels and an ice skating rink. It's probably about 4 to 5 times bigger than our mall here in Seattle. And since there is no tax in Portland, I felt like the entire mall was on sale and everything was 9% off. I got a ridiculously sexy gown at the Metro in Portland (I have more sexy dresses now than 1 girl could possibly wear). I also got a couple items from this amazing vendor at the ball that makes unique and detailed goth and belly dance wear. You can check her out at http://www.darkfusionboutique.com/

At the Spencers in the mall I got all kinds of fancy club lights for my dance studio. And I also got a one of a kind hand crafted leather top at Metro. I spent WAY more than I planned to and now I need to take a break from shopping for a while. I'll post ball pictures once I've had a chance to download them.
