What kind of friend makes you buy a new outfit for a party?
Eva Longoria was recently on “Late Night With Seth Meyers” and they tackled a topic close to everyone’s heart (and wallet): themed parties. Like, who still does that? It’s one thing to tell your friends that they have to give up their time for a party, but following a theme means they have to spend money on a new outfit. And who has time for that? Longoria had to deal with this issue recently when she was invited to Serena Williams’ baby shower. The theme was the ’50s, because the stores are just filled with easy to find and perfectly fitting 1950s outfits, right? Tbh, it is kind of cute to see them all dressed up as ’50s heartbreakers, but it forced Longoria to buy a new outfit. How did she do it? Well, she bought a pirate themed Halloween costume and just sewed it to make it look like a 1950s dress because she couldn’t find anything. Now, you do have the option of just not dressing up but Longoria was quick to let everyone know that Williams doesn’t roll that way.
“Oh, you get shade,” Longoria said about not dressing up for a Serena Williams party. “Oh, yeah yeah. You get the looks of ‘Oh. You didn’t dress up. Too good to dress up, huh?’ So you have to.”
Of course Meyers had to ask Longoria a little bit more about her sewing. Longoria said she doesn’t just sew pillows or curtains. She makes full Halloween costumes for her nieces and nephews. That means her friends now use her sewing skills for their own benefit.
Basically, Longoria has some high maintenance friends who hit her up for alterations:

Meyers: “I would think that they would assume that you have more important things to do than hem their pants.”
Longoria: “No. Apparently not.”
