This past Friday was my sorority invite! The theme this year was old Hollywood, which for most people ended up being classic Hollywood outfits, complete with bow ties, hats, and suspenders. Others chose to dress up as their favorite characters from old Hollywood movies, like James Dean and Natalie Wood from Rebel Without a Cause, and others chose to be more creative and dressed up as Hollywood seniors, canes and all!

Before invite two of my best friends and I went to dinner at Bacaro, a delicious wine bar just a few blocks away from campus. While their specialty is wine they also have other great drinks, which our over 21 dates definitely enjoyed. The plates are all great little tapas, which are excellent to share with friends. I of course got the nutella panini; who needs dinner when you can skip straight to dessert? After we finished our meals we walked back to Gamma Phi to get ready to board the busses and head off to invite! I ran into fellow VSA Will, who was also going to my invite!

Invite was held at Bugatta, a gorgeous restaurant on La Brea and Melrose. Although I’ve never been there before, several of my friends had recently had dinner at the restaurant and appreciated being back at the venue. My friends and I had so much fun dancing the night away with our dates at this awesome venue. I definitely want to go back at some point!
