Partytime, Excellent

Me and Christina with the nightlife award. We wore dresses that we made out of Vivienne Westwood fabric we found at Mood, and Vivienne Westwood x Melissa shoes (sorry no full length pictures, we were drunk). The dresses say "Don't you ever kiss me once, kiss me twice!"

As far as days go, yesterday was pretty excellent. In the afternoon, we received a lovely write up from Refinery29 for Triskaidekaphobia, and last night, much to our surprise, we won the award for Best New Party for Butter at The Paper Magazine Nightlife Awards. We won the same prize in 2007 for Six Six Sick, but this time around, we didn't think we had a chance against Lady Gaga fave, Main Man (which ended up picking up the prize for Best Gay Party anyway). When our name was called (they accidentally called the party 66Sick, when it's really called Whipped), I think we were so stunned, that people had to drag/shove us up on to the stage, where mmmbopper Taylor Hanson handed over the little disco-ball wielding Munny.

One of the best parts of the evening was having our friends The Drums perform, stepping up in place of the Ting Tings, who were sick and had to cancel at the last moment. Jon, the lead singer, not only is one of our closest friends, but actually used to be part of Six Six Sick, and took the stage with us when we won in 2007. It made the night that much more perfect, even if they couldn't hang out cause they were locked up in their dressing room for the better part of the night for their standing record of bad behavior (naughty boys!).

We had a button made with all the people involved in making Whipped at Butter happen. L-R: Brik, Christina, Aaron, me, Maia, and Matt. Cameron and Alejandro were missing, unfortunately.

Another picture of Jon. Of course I was front and center and snapping photos like a stage mom.

Two of our all-time favorite nightlifers ever, Sophia Lamar and Bunny Kinney

I LOVE the Drums. It's a bit strange that I saw them in London before seeing them in NY though.
