[ Masquerading ] In Burlesque

A few weeks ago, I visited the Mansion on O Street for a night of 
masquerading and fun. The mansion has over 30 hidden doors
although I will admit I only discovered two.

Through these doors, and the several adjoining staircases,
I uncovered the over-furnished suites. 

Quite literally a hoarder's high-end paradise.

The night ended in a dance competition-- obviously. As a judge
alongside my friend, I watched the moves of the men in suits 
and the women in corsets and heels. 
We even exercised our [self] bestowed duty to have a 
dance-off between two fair ladies to our song of choice.

Finally, I embodied my best Vanna, announced the winner,
and spent the rest of the evening twirling in my tulle and lace 
while the dj played my favorite songs...
