What happened to girls parties?
I don’t know if I’m getting old or if people don’t do them anymore, because I haven’t been to one in years!
It seems like most gatherings are mixed, which is fine, but it doesn’t lend itself to the crazy wild times I enjoyed in the past. We’re talking dancing, costume parties, getting our hair done and not worrying about impressing anyone besides ourselves. Basically giving us hijabis an excuse to deck out!
I miss being able to buy a really fancy gown and for a nice formal evening with friends. One of my favorite events was when a friend of mine planned a reunion back where my parents live, since many of us have moved away or gotten married etc. It was a great time to reconnect but the amazing part was how she made it really cool. She had a limo pick us all up and take us to dinner at the country club. We had a private room with female wait staff and were able to dress up and let it all hang out lol.
I do have “girls night out” on occasion with friends, but I need some partying where I’m not confined in my hijab, I want to let loose! Maybe it’s time for me to bring back the party lifestyle to my community here and give them a taste of what it’s like lol.
Now that I think of it, I should look into the party room in my building and see if I can host a girls only party to usher in the end of winter! 🙂
What do you think? Have you seen a decrease in girls only social gatherings as you’ve gotten older? Or does it depend on the community you live in?
