A few weeks ago (yes, I am that behind on posts!), my Meetup group headed out for dinner and to check out the male stripper flick, Magic Mike. Here's what I wore:
Bird Print Dress: Forever 21 PLus
Shoes: TJ Maxx
Necklace: Lola's Lovlies
I purchased this online from Forever 21 a few months ago. It is very cute and comfortable, but the sheer arms and upper bust are a bit low on me, so I have to wear a little camisole underneath. Aside from that, it is the perfect lightweight Summer dress.
Me and the ladies met up at Camino Real for some margaritas and a quick bite to eat before the movie. I had the grilled shrimp and rice and it was awesome! I wish I had taken a photo of my dish :)
We headed over to the theater after dinner, and it was packed.....with ladies! It was a Tuesday night, so I was a bit surprised. We sat in a row with some some older chicas getting their party on! I really dug the fun atmosphere.
I asked a nice lady to snap a picture of us. It didn't really turn out, but you get the idea.
As far as Magic Mike goes, I am generally not into male stripper, eye candy kind off stuff. I've seen some male stripper shows back in my youth, and they were super cheesy.
But I was pleasantly surprised by Magic Mike. Yes, there was eye candy (helllloo Joe Manganiello from True Blood!), but there was a bit of a plot (shocking!), and the acting and directing were well done. On a random note, the story took place in Tampa, Florida, so it made me a a bit homesick for my home state.
I think Channing Tatum's dancing was the star of the movie. His movements were so frickin' fluid, it was insane!
Here's the trailer. Ladies, do yourselves a favor and check this one out!
