We were out yesterday

It was a good-bye party of one of E's colleagues where we were invited yesterday night. Location: cocktail bar. I cannot remember anymore when I was together with so many beautiful and smart people. We were the oldest ones there, I believe. What an honor that we were invited.

Each generation is different. When I was in my early twenties I wouldn't have dressed up like the ladies did at that party. I preferred to be dressed in dirty jeans and a t-shirt. It was simple and an understatement, even though I wouldn't have used this word that time back. I also wouldn't have had the money to buy clothes. No lipstick of course tried to draw the attention to my lips. It was also a life concept not to focus on beauty, especially not as a woman. This has changed, haha. I'm glad now that I had this time where I enjoyed not to care at all.
A former friend of mine, a fashion designer used to say that young people always look beautifully. After 50 one has to well-groom oneself, she was convinced. I thought to start with 40 is better. Colors in the face pleased me a lot very soon. Once a lover gave me a pink lipstick as a present. Oh, I appreciated it a lot. Most people won't start caring for their appearance with 50 if they haven't cared by then, I think. But who knows. I've changed, too.
It was amazing how these young people had already developed such a good taste. I enjoyed it a lot to see these lovely faces and fancy clothes.
It was a very international party. I could speak English, yepeee.

Water was my drink yesterday night. I enjoyed it twice: yesterday and this morning. I feel good, well-rested. After midnight we took a taxi to get home.

Here I sit now with my second cup of coffee..........what next, I wonder. First I'll pamper my bf with a breakfast........

Sounds like you had lovely evening! Although I'm a jeans and t-shirt kind of guy, it's nice to get all dressed up sometimes. Great blog, btw.
