Day 3 of our Harajuku Fragrance experiment is brought to you by the letter G. As in, the name of the fragrance was ‘G’, which we interpreted as “money”, and later realized it stood for Gwen.
In the G-money theme, we wore green (which is the color of money, and also starts with the letter ‘G’), went to a party by a startup that just got a bunch of G’s with a capital G-roupMe.
And so we discuss our outfits, the fragrance, and the party.
Mallory: I wore a green dress to represent dollar bills and a gold jacket to represent a gold brick. I didn’t wear heels because then I’d look like a million bucks and for this particular event I could only look like one thousand. I also repeatedly sang ‘like a g6’ in my head, hoping to parlay the qualities of said g6 in my physical presence and demeanor. Done.
Bianca: We had to dress like G’s… so I wore my green leggings. That was a given. Then I just stared at my green leggings for a while and really thought about what what I could wear with them, which is a problem I face every time I wear these green leggings. I got them because they were like my ode to Poison Ivy (oh god, maybe I should stop referencing comic book characters…).
Anyway, Bada Boum. There it was. The Rebecca Minkoff shirt. And I was like, I bet G’s would be like “Bada Boum”. Then I put some bling on and decided to wear shorts over my green leggings so I wouldn’t be wearing green leggings as pants.
Moto jacket… some aviators… yea. Money.
Mallory: Since GroupMe clearly knows a thing or two about making a good product, I figured I’d ask them if ‘G’ was deserving of a g. Cam had the most compelling and thought-provoking response.
Cam: This smells really familiar.
Mallory: Like what?
Cam: Teenage girls.
Bianca: Mallory forewarned me that the fragrance was going to smell bad… and that some people thought it smelled like High School. I took a sniff, and it reminded me of the scent Sweet Pea from Bath and Body Works. Which isn’t necessarily bad… but definitely HS. I tried to get some reactions from people, but the scent wore off after I walked through half the room. Whatever. It was weird asking people to smell me anyway.
Mallory: Rachel Sklar truly changed the ratio with her wild rendition of Meredith Brooks’ “Bitch” Other karaoke highlights included Pat.
Bianca: This party was amazing. Karaoke, dancing, beer pong, and a persuasive bartender. Whoever ordered the chicken fingers and french fries towards the end is our 2nd favorite person ever. Following Pat, who is our first favorite person ever. As that Observer article says… he truly was a Wonder Boy… holding down the Karaoke fort n stuff.
