Housewarming and hipsters

I've been back for almost three months, but my roommate and I decided it was time we host a long awaited housewarming party. And a party is always better when it's themed, so we decided to make fun of hipsters. One of my biggest reverse culture shock back home was seeing the high number of hipsters roaming the Montreal streets. No, really, Montreal is hipster central- after all, this is the home of American Apparel. We asked our guests to sport their hipster best, we made an insane amount of sangria (white and red), and danced to MGMT. Our tiny apartment was soon crowded with thirty of our closest friends, and the party abruptly ended at 3am when the concierge got sick of the loud music. Okay, not my classiest fete, but perhaps the best in a long time.

{And yes, I own tons of AA clothes, but I'm by no means a hipster!}

Theme parties are always so fun. Hipster was a great choice! Those head bands and huge glasses say it all :-)

Great hipster shots! Just found your blog, and I"m really enjoying it. I used to live in Asia and miss it a lot. So different from the Western world, but beautiful and crazy in its own way.
