A sometime glimpse into fabulous life.

Was invited to a friend's birthday party last night. Fabulous club on 33rd floor overlooking metro Detroit. (Metro D gets a bad rap... deservedly at times, but it's also quite lovely in places too) It was amazing to see all the beauty of the city... but man did I feel out-fabulous-ed. I loved my glimpse into the upper crust, but I'm more "middle of the loaf" in real life. Still, it was fun to step into a different strata for a quick peek!
