Every once and a while I enjoy having some friends over for a themed party. The soirées have involved themes that involved everything from ugly sweaters to wigs. For some reason or another, people have been the most receptive to the Eurotrash parties. Now if you’re clueless as to what Eurotrash is, the Urban Dictionary has done a nice job of explaining it.

“One whose effortlessly impeccable style, tasteful understated elegance, and continent-hopping savoire vivre, is manifested in one’s daily presentation—including, but not limited to: choice of words (few and articulate; loudness only permitted for Italians…from Italy, not Jersey); multilingual accent (reflecting upbringing by French nanny, German-Swiss headmaster at boarding school in St. Moritz, and a touch of “ivy-league American” from countless summers at parent’s Easthampton residence and study period at Brown);choice of clothing (at least 3 pieces orchestrated in natural fabrics of varying textures and varying coordinated colours–but not varying quality–only the finest, bien sur); places frequented (ultra-modern Ian Schrager hang-outs, gourmet shops, ‘historical districts’, museum cafes, etc.; not Starbucks; never shopping malls); lack of familiarity with cheap,disposable pop-culture (‘Britney who?’); and of course, a command of the “I-don’t-know-what”: loafers without socks; cigarette smoked like ’40’s film star; collars on polo shirts turned upwards; selects unadvertised fragrances; almost entirely void of visible logos (exceptions:family crest or personal monogram; crocodile, polo player, and “G”)employs the ‘kiss on either cheek’ greeting. The word Eurotrash should only be used on the west side of ‘the pond’ and in relation to the bland, Puritan, mass-marketed,shrink-wrapped, petit-bourgeois style rampant in America.”

Anyways, the party was filled with tight pants, unbuttoned shirts, Gucci glasses, terrible accents, and plenty of hair gel. I took some time at the start of the party to snap some shots before things got too hectic. I hope you will enjoy them. Oh, and the funny part about all of the cigarette shots is that none of the people in them smoke but when in Rome….
