What to Wear: Dancing with the Stars




If you follow me on Facebook you may know that I went to DWTS on Tuesday!
I had a great time but got home late and it killed me the next day.
 I know I am a whiner poor me right?
Unfornately they don't allow cameras or cell phones in the studio :(.
So I have no photos to prove I am there, or show you all the fun things we saw.
I did make it on camera though ;)
The dress code is "dressy".
I dressed cocktail party dressy.
However there was a large range of outfits.

I always prefer to error on the side of too dressy.
Dancing with the Stars



We actually chatted with Brooke during one of the commercial breaks.
She had on these darling purple platform Steve Madden heels and they were killing her feet.
She is a tiny little thing with stunning hair.  


Some of the people in the audience I loved seeing.... Kris Jenner, The Bachelor Jake ( he was on a date and it wasn't Vienna ;) ) ,  and Patricia Arquette.
As far as the dancers, we were seated right across from their lounge.
So it was fun watching them all night.

I am a HUGE Laguna Beach fan and even though I don't think Kristin Cavallari is particularly nice, it was still a treat seeing her!




Rikki Lake is adorable and so sweet I loved her expressive face.

 I love Carson too and was relieved he was safe. I loved his glasses!!


The Macy's dancers where amazing



As was Demi Lavato!

Overall it was a fun night.. but it was A LOT of waiting around for the hour and 30 minute show.

Would I go again? Yes.
