Adelaide Yelpers spent their "hump day" night bringing vintage back into fashion at Urban Spaceman Vintage Fashions. Adorned with a Cushdy made cocktail in one hand and a What A Treat retro Lemon Slice in the other, Yelpers grooved to the funky tunes of Pimpin' Horus and spent the evening mingling with Yelp Adelaide's finest Elites.
Yelpers were told by Luke, the owner of Urban Spaceman, that "j ust because something is "vintage" doesn't mean its second hand," – taking pride in his high quality finds of unworn pieces from the 60s and 70s. Tough competition then prevaled throughout the night as Yelpers eyed off "their favourites," from vintage dresses, jackets, shirts, pants and even shoes for both men and women.
From cool threads to making an Old Fashioned Bacardi Rum cocktail or Bombay Sapphire Elderly White Lady, Yelpers were schooled by Cushdy in how to be a "cool" entertainer in the naughties. Daniel R and Natasha S enjoyed reminicing on "nibbles from childhood" like What A Treat's Lemon Slice, French Onion Dip and Leek & Zucchini Puffs. There was also many a fruit kebab dipped in the chocolate fountain and queries of whether a "chocolate layback," would be appropriate at the end of the evening.
The networking stakes were high and as mouths went a chattering, Pimpin' Horus got people well lubricated with their funky, sexy tunes. Lee L is now glad he has "more than one friend on Yelp," and many a Yelper enjoyed putting real faces to names!
