Snapbacks & Tattoos | My BDay Celebration

Last year for my birthday celebration, we did a Hollywood glam theme, where my guests dressed up in tuxedos and gowns and there were lots of pearls and diamonds. A red carpet and a private dining room at one of my favorite French restaurants, Django. It was super classy and super superb.

For this year, I decided to release my inner-gangster and came up with the Snapbacks & Tattoos theme, inspired by Driicky Graham’s song:

So the invite:

We began the night at Buzzard Billy’s, a Cajun-style restaurant. Great food and the new joint on 3rd is awesome. So many other things on the menu I want to try. I think we received not-so-stellar service because we were dressed a little… hood. We also got seriously asked if we knew where to buy bath salts… are you serious??

So there’s my Khenrified snapback. I went to Mid-K Beauty Supply to buy it and when I set it up on the register, the cashier was like “What are you going to do with this?” I said, “Wear it.” He said, “What? You tryin’ to look gangster? I don’t think you can pull off the hard look.” Of course, I was wearing a Ralph Lauren turtleneck, so maybe that’s why he judged me.

I had my wonderful friend, Ariel, tat me up.

And here are a few shots of the night.

This guy was not a guest at my party, but still fit the theme!

All in all, it was an awesome night! Thank you so much to everyone who helped make it so much fun!!

And don’t worry the planning committee is already doing mockups for next year’s festivities!
