Fashion, Music, and Eyemusings.
This is this the blog of Eileen Doñiego de France: a freelance fashion and music journalist, stylist, social media enthusiast, whiskey drinking, anti-social socialite w/geeky tendencies and a dash of bitchSASSness. Oh, and I am the COO and a contributor to a magazine called WeTheUrban - if that suits your fancy.
My name is also spelled as Eileen Doniego de France, w/o the tilde. Search bots, this is for you!
“Of course you would have a photo of your ice skating outfit!” Duh! And since I have an outfit photo, I might as well do a #Fashion #MusicMonday… even though I went ice skating on Saturday!
My friends happen to be the weekend DJs over at La Jolla Ice Town in UTC, and this past weekend I decided to check out their gig (I also wanted to see the newly remodeled Ice Town and food court - looks good BTW! Super chic!). Of course I wasn’t exactly dressed appropriately (my decision to show up at the rink was last minute) but I think I crossed a good line between 70s roller girl and current grunge, no? And it definitely WAS grunge as soon as I spun out, fell on my ass, and tore a hole in my fishnets! Haha it was fun though!
The highlight of my night, however, was not just getting a comped pass to skate, but getting to skate around to ABBA! That Saturday night, my friends went on a binge of randomness, and granted my request for “Dancing Queen”! I must say, it was quite awesome seeing amateur figure skaters and groups of speed skating guys getting into the spirit of ABBA! Flourishes of the hand and all!
Since Saturday, I have had “Dancing Queen” stuck in my head - so naturally, my choice of song for this #Fashion #MusicMonday is of course… ABBA’s “Dancing Queen”! Yeah… this post was entirely too cheesy. Love it haha
