Boogie Nights


Topshop dress/tunic, H&M jacket, Primark vest and shoes


This is what I wore for my first "proper" night out in Vienna. An Austrian friend is a DJ, so I went along to a club night with him and his friends on Saturday to see him, um, DJ (is there another verb apart from "to DJ"?)
It was a good night, but randomly half way through a girl dressed as a mermaid, full on rubber tail and everything, appeared and just lay on a table for a couple of hours posing and flapping about a bit. Very odd. No-one else seemed to know why either.
I actually ended up changing into the heeled boots from this post last minute, as the other girls we were going with were also wearing them, and I find it easier to dance in heels. My feet were killing by the end of the night, but luckily these boots have chunky enough heels that I could do that balance on the back of your heel to flatten your foot out and take the pressure off the balls of your feet thing. Does that make any sense?

The whole night, aside from dancing, was basically a repetition of this:
Random Austrian guy - "Wie heisst du?"
Me - "Fritha"
RAG - "Was?"
Me - "Fritha"
RAG - "Was?"
Me - "Ich bin englisch..."
RAG - "Ah. Where do you come from?"
Me - "London" (Not strictly 100% true, but no-one has heard of where I live, so it's easier to say London. In fairness I am there most of the time for uni.)
RAG - "Echt cool! I was in London a month ago/It's my favourite city/I have a friend who lives in London."
Me - "Great"
RAG - "How do you say your name again?"
Me - "You won't be able to say it"
RAG - "I try"
Me - "Fritha"
RAG - "Can I call you Free/Freya/London girl?"
*I shuffle off*

The whole night. I am going to have to go back to the plan of using a fake name when out to avoid long and ultimately pointless conversations about my name. I've done it at uni a few times and it results in less painful nights out.


P.S. All will probably be a bit quiet on the blog front this coming week as my parents are coming to visit, so obviously all of my time will be spent with them. Everything should be back to normal at the start of next month though.

P.P.S. Hope everyone had a nice Easter and got lots of chocolate to scoff!

  3. Ah, I used to love bar conversations with guys when I did my year abroad in Spain. They couldn't get my name either (The 'H' just comes out as a phlegmy sound!) and the minute I said "I'm English" they would say "So you are from London?!". My personal favourite was:

    Spanish Guy: So...you are from London! Do you have boyfriend?
    Me: Yes, I do.
    Spanish guy: But he is in England?
    Me: Yes.
    Spanish guy: So it does not count! We dance?
    Me: No thanks. Ciao...

    Every. Bloody. Time! :D

  4. I love that dress! Whenever anyone at uni asks where I'm from, I say Birmingham. It's close enough.

  5. That dress is pretty amazing! And good call going with the heeled boots.
    That mermaid sounds hilariously random, lol.

    Hope you enjoy your time with your parents.

  6. Hello miss tanned! you look gorgeous :) haha aww dude, I feel your pain on the whole name thing too. When I was a wee girl, I used to pretend my name was something else and for some reason people abroad always go 'ahhh, EDEN?! Like the garden?' yeah... whatevz ;) Hope you have a nice time with your parents and be sure to let me know if the dress is okay :) xx

  8. Ah, you look so pretty! Love that tunic, and I agree with Ayden, you're looking very tanned!
    Also, I know EXACTLY what you mean about the heel/balance thing - it's often very necessary to master such maneuvers at the end of a night out...x

  10. Hahah oh those crazy Austrians. I went to a school in Bavaria for a month a couple of years ago and being hit on by German blokes was a bit of a hazard... also, yeah, you are looking VERY tanned!
