your grandpa's suit and an empty dance floor

Heaven is an empty dance floor. I don't go out dancing as much as I'd like to, mostly because I can't stay up much later than 11:00 p.m., and I don't like dancing when the dance floor is a mad house. This Friday, Jesse had his monthly soul club, "the Secret Affair." I got there at 9:30 p.m., as I usually do, to dance my ass off, and cut-up, before the place became way too crowded.

Jesse's mission
What a jerk! Jesse loves to place his foot in the frame of my photos. By the way, I was just kidding when I said Jesse was a jerk. I'll tell you more about him one day. We met on the dance floor over 10 years ago and have been best buds ever since. We even lived together for 5 of those years. You can bet your bottom, we've shared a lot of dance space.
Secret Affair
With the dance floor packed, I jumped in a taxi, and headed home, though I still ended up staying up until 3:00 a.m., a rarity for me, catching up on old times with my dear friend, Hector.
You may have noticed my pastel plaid 70s grandpa suit. I bought it last weekend at my favorite Long Beach vintage store, Imonni. The owner of the shop, Eiko, converted the pants into cute shorts, making this outfit wearable & loveable! I am so in love with this suit;I wore it 3 times this week. Well, one of the times, I only wore the jacket, along with a pink dress. (I'll show you this outfit next time). Here are some photos of me looking like a sexy grandpa, taken a few days ago.

Check out the funny "wieners with faces" magnet on my fridge. well, I hope everyone has been enjoying their weekends. I must go to bed now. It's nearly 1:00 a.m.!

Outfit: 70s plaid grandpa suit, Imonni vintage, 80s pink "California Beach Club" shirt (thrifted), Bass oxfords (thrifted), Aldo platforms in second outfit. (super half price sale).

almost forgot -- these photos were taken with my Olympus Trip 500. Many thanks to Hailey & Stace for taking some photos. Also, Stace, I had lots of fun on our date night!


  1. These photos are so nice, I love how happy you look! I wish I could dance, but I'm way too shy (and my dancing is terrible anyway). I love the suit, it looks so nice!

  5. Angela Joy,

    Next time, say "Hi". I would love to meet you!

    You don't have to dance well to dance! Try dancing around your living room. I find it to be one of the most freeing modes of expression! Thanks for the compliment.


    Dance with your girlfriends! Jesse isn't my boyfriend, he's my friend who is a boy. he does have great hair though!

    xoxo, Crystal Lee

  6. These photos are so fun! The granpa suit looks great.
