Oaktown 357

Asos pink skirt, Partying in Oakland
The only time I go out is when my friends and I meet up for our girls weekends. We all live in different states, so it only happens once a year.   So I get myself together for a weekend of bar hopping and dancing.  The funny thing is when I think about going out to a club type thing it just turns me off, but somehow I always end up have an awesome time. We ventured all the way over to Oakland's Somar Bar to get our "two step" on.  As I really don't know the area it was just plain luck that the club was jumping and the DJ's were pumping. Yelp didn't steer me wrong.  Needless to say, we had a good time.  I've been to Oakland a few times and I really like the area.  It has so much more character than where I live.  Every time I think of that city, I think of Oaktown 357.  I know I'm showing my age, but just in case you wanted a "two step" break feel free to listen below.  

Style Note:  I literally died when I saw this skirt pass by my pinterest board.  Wouldn't you know the thing was only available in straight size.  As a frequent shopper of both ASOS & ASOS Curve, I don't why they don't offer some of their regular styles in plus.   Pieces that would be easy plus size conversions, like this skirt below, I believe would sell out instantly. This skirt is a size US 14.  Although, ASOS does run big, I really had to shimmy into this one.  I loved it so much that I just couldn't let it pass by.  It's made out of that scuba material and had 19% stretch, so I gave it a go, but I can't lie and say I would have loved to have it in my actual size for an optimal fit.  Another issue with this skirt is that it sold out quickly, but one thing I learned about ASOS is that you can stalk the link to the item that you want when it's sold out.   They will post whatever sizes become available.  I assume they are from returned merchandise.
