Last week, a few friends and I attended Rookie Mag's Prom at the Ace Hotel in honor of their one year anniversary and the release of their first yearbook. Some of the pics are featured on the blog for a wonderful and new quarterly zine The Fly By Night!
The decor was fittingly sparkly and frilly, excessive in the best way possible.
We danced for hours to a perfect mix of girly tunes including picks like "Cherry Bomb, "Dancing On My Own", "Hit Me Baby One More Time" and "Smells like Teen Spirit".
Among the incredible Rookie staff were guests such as Alexa Chung, Dev Hynes (of Blood Orange), and Florence Welch (!!!).
