Twice a year one of my groups of girlfriends gets together for what we call "Girlfriends' Christmas" and "Girlfriends' Birthday". It is a chance to exchange gifts & celebrate our friendship. We rotate who hostesses which involves picking the theme, directing the gift exchange logistics, & throwing a killer party. I was one of the hostesses of Girlfriend's Christmas 2010 themed "glamorous". It was (literally) one big dance party, dance floor, DJ, costume trunk & all! Anyway, the reason this entry finds its way onto my style blog is because these gals challenge the most diligent fashionistas in any major city!
Look at them!
Now great style & rockin' bods isn't all these gals have to offer. Among them we have an attorney, multiple medical professionals, business owners, top marketing execs, top sales execs at a Fortune 500 company, a former pro runner (who still runs 6 minute/mile marathons!), tri-atheletes, and a few stay at home Moms (the hardest job if you ask me). These ladies can kick ass on a mountain bike & can bomb the ski slopes like no ones business. They work hard & play harder. Once the trails, slopes, & kids have seen enough they throw on sequins, heels, skinny jeans, & a boa (remember the costume box mention) & rock the dance floor with a glass of bubbly. I have lots of interests & get bored easily, but these ladies keep me laughing, running (!), & enjoying my own individuality. They have supported me through loss & are always there with a bottle of wine after a long week. They are quick to give a compliment & never judge. Girlfriends like these are 1 in a billion & I consider myself very lucky in friendship. While this is a blog about fashion I think the most important accessory of all is a true friend. At the end of the day, girlfriends are the one thing that NEVER go out of style!
