Wednesday night’s MDR Studio party theme was Play That Funky Music and so I needed a great dance dress that recalled the bright spirit and joy of Funk. This Vertical dress in citrus from Adam and Eve fit the bill nicely – it’s sheen reminiscent of the 70’s love affair with shiny fabric/ With a contemporary flair to the skirt and up to the minute accessories from Earthtones and DeLa, I felt I could have that funkadelic spirit and stay in my own time, so to speak. I could wear an outfit, not a costume.
The dress comes in several colors and is also sold in a fatpack. I paired it with a grape pair of the slingback’s from Juicy’s Slingback’s fatpack. Okay, sometimes the word Fatpack just does not capture the essence of a collection. There are 20, yes 20, pairs of different colors in the fatpack. That’s not a fatpack, that a humungapack, a gargantuapack, a galactipack. If you want a complete shoe wardrobe, a fatpack in these versatile shoes that can be dressy or casual and can go with anything is a wise investment.
Now the music did not come together so seamlessly. I was DJ’ing and my mouse started sending a double click when I clicked only once, so selecting a song to move into the playlist actually would start the song. To keep it easy and prevent all sorts of musical mayhem, I shifted to playing a wonderful box set that covers the foundations of funk. It’s called What It Is! Funky Soul and Rare Grooves. That link takes you to a comprehensive review. If you check it out, you will see that we had an education in Funk 101, 201 and even some post-graduate Funk.
