The Ace Hotel Halloween; The Flashdance Halloween Party at the Ace Palm Springs; BashPlease



Did you have a smashing Halloween? Thanks to The Flashdance and BashPlease, I had a splendid evening at The Ace Palm Springs that can best be described as a Halloween prom. Armed with my Holly Golightly sleepmask that I’ve had for years, my hubby’s tuxedo shirt that he wore when we got married and some tassels I picked up at Mood for 50 cents/pop, I grabbed my candy cigarettes and  false eyelashes, channeled my beloved Holly Golightly from my favorite Breakfast at Tiffany’s scene and headed to The Ace for the Best Halloween Party Ever. Imagine my surprise when I met Holly Golightly in a fab LBD. Quel beast! I introduced myself as Hungover Holly and we had a delightful chitty chat over Moscow Mules and our shared goal of becoming the next Kelly Wearstler. Let’s just say LBD Holly has a much better shot, as she is an interior designer already (check out her blog The Decorista). And I just play one in my daydreams… Always the bridesmaid… Intending to go to the party with my daaahling Fred Baby as my date, hubby played a last-minute switcharoo on me and went instead as…

Arnold Schwarzenegger. Or, as he liked to tell people, Meg Whitman. He simply couldn’t resist channeling his Austrian roots. Making Halloween prom even sweeter (and saltier) were the daaahling Oh Joy (as ice cream – quel adorable!) and Oh Bob (as bacon – quel sizzlin’!). We had the cat’s meow of a time noshing on sweets, dancing to retro beats and playing in the Smilebooth photobooth.

It simply couldn’t have been more marvy…well except if a woman’s hat had caught fire, but otherwise, it was a perfect ace.



If you have a chance to go to a Flashdance/Bashplease party, I highly recommend it.



And step on it, daahling!
