The city of Charlotte never runs out of events or parties one can go to. All one has to do is to search Charlotte NC upcoming events on any search engine and voila! The results on the first page alone should suffice for whatever party you have in mind. I have actually finished a search a few seconds ago and one hot ticket is the upcoming concert of Madonna.
It’s always good to know that because of technology and specifically the internet, planning ahead is a breeze. Although I can still remember back when you still have to drive to where the event will be held weeks in advance if you’re like me who spares no effort just to make sure of things; and I bet that you didn’t enjoy that either. Things got a little better. Advancements came after that and you are allowed to make reservations over the phone. Today we can still do that but who would want to go through that hassle if securing a ticket are just a few clicks away
Okay, so you have secured a ticket and you are just counting how many times you only have to sleep at night before the event you have been waiting for arrives. Most probably you still have forgotten about an important factor. Other than yourself, you are sure to bring this one as well. Still got no idea? What I want to point out is fashion. Proper clothing can make or break you. Just like everybody else you want to make the first impression count for sure. Whether you’ll be taking your friends with you, you have a date or if you’re planning to just meet people your attire says a great deal of message to whoever sees you with it. I’m no fashion guru, but I’ll do my best to enlighten you my dear reader with some fashion essential that you should always keep in your backpack.

First up, before you can say you’re ready for an event you have to make sure you’ve completed reconnaissance in the place. You never want to be inappropriately dressed, which just screams to people “hey I’m here but I didn’t pay any attention other than the place and date because you guys are not important.”
