Circus Couture and Salsa Dancing...

This was my self portrait final from Drawing class. Done in Graphite on Arches paper. There's a bunch of symbolism and historical influences used to create this drawing.

Long evening yesterday. Didn't get much of a chance to wander the entire campus to check out THE SHOW but did make it to the senior fashion show. It wasn't the designers full collections but just two selections from the line. The theme was Circus Couture. Honestly I was pleasantly surprised with the outfits coming down the cat walk. A few of my favorites:

Robin Savage

The rest of my evening included eating sushi, hanging out with a few of my lady friends, drinking lots of wine and rounding it all up with some salsa dancing.
Salsa dancing was fun. On Fridays at La Fogata in the Short North they have their Salsa Fever open dance nights. I don't really know how to do it but most dance partners are rather patient with you. lol. I am seriously the most uncordinated person! There's constantly a man asking for a dance so there's plenty of oppourtunity to hit the floor. Not that it wasn't entertaining being a wallflower at times when taking a breather. Watching  the couples who obviously knew what they were doing was awesome.

I wish it wasn't so grey out today. Headed over to the AGORA show over at Junctionveiw studios later. I'd rather it not storm :(
