How Your Clothes Can Demand Attention at Cafe Citron
It’s surprisingly ironic how people react to a camera dependent on size. Have you tried taking pictures of attractive females with your Nikon pocket camera only to have them turn away or cover their face? Now try the same thing but with a DSLR camera the size of a pineapple when fitted with an external flash, battery grip, and a mega lens. The camera becomes a magnet that you can just hold up in front of people to have them smile, grin, or throw up a fake sign-language gesture. If this doesn’t happen to you then you may have a smile malfunction or too small camera.
Now on to the fashion statements people make consciously and unconsciously. People judge books by their cover especially if you’re not going to the book store. Cafe Citron is in the top 0.1% of fashionable dance venues at Dupont Circle. Every weekend people line up at the door just to play the bongo drums against the rhythm of the DJ’s latin music.
Girls get the benefit of standing on the tables during the bongo drumming ceremony where men reach out and beg for their attention. If you happen to be the chosen one banging the drums, then you get the reverse crowd effect. Graciously there is no cover charge to enter this Latin venue because the price to get inebriated here will compensate for the entrance, but be sure to dress fancy because as you see in the photos below, people are totally fashionable from their six-inch diva heels to their Brazilian blowout hair styles.
Let’s start with this young lady that is into Earth tones as shown by her long wavy hair and tan colored top. A realist person like this is an example to the magnetism of the camera, as soon as she turned from the bar, she was sucked into me face first.
These girls are playing it safe with black tops and jeans. The black jeans and extended top are an extra safe measure for the highlights girl on the left. Her smile compensates for the decent fashion however personality must follow. The necklace charm girl has just that, her long swinging necklace. It would be much sexier right at the cleavage but then guys would just be staring obnoxiously asking her about the necklace. BRASILEIRAS?
One happy family. Probably the chillest and friendliest type you can meet here, because you can just tell they are here to have fun in a care-free attitude. Synchronized smiles timed perfectly.
Now what does this outfit scream? ”Let me free?” That’s the teacher every middle school kid had a crush on during English or Spanish class. Her top is designed just right with no extra buttons above the cleavage and no loose articles at the midriff. Ahhh… why is the hair in the way of those leafy ear rings? Try some different eye shadow colors. That turquoise is out of phase.
Here’s a situation where the girls are clearly into studying PhD in Non-Profit Psychology, then partying after submitting their 900 page thesis. You could tell the Ecuadorian girl on the left likes to leave a lot of appearance to mystery, but at least she knows how to present her hair with a smidgeon of make-up. The lady on right is ready for the prom and might spank you afterward with that WWE Championship double buckle belt.
Aren’t the light bloom effects just sweet? This is what happens when the camera’s evaluated average focus is stunned by the center point and doesn’t focus the rest. No problem really when your center of attention is Latin blonde. She’s obviously used to the attention because of her identity crisis. If the friend on the left would go blonde they would be the evil twins fighting in competition. But that wouldn’t happen as the brunette is just the follower. Beyond the hair, there is the hair… how about shopping at the accessory aisle?

No, No, No, It’s unbelievable how chill this girl is. Out of 100 photo snaps her demeanor was nonetheless model material. I only need this one to show the point of a near perfect equation. I’m curious if what dress was made out of a Mexican poncho.
I will leave this up to your imagination otherwise known as self-explanatory. I think I got a hug from her.
I had to put the before and after shot of this couple or errr.. just friends. Skulls and bones are not DC at all, how often do you see what comes out of LA? As artistic as the dude’s shirt is, it’s too casual and too bad-ass for a non bad-ass venue. This is another example of a girl being gravitated toward the camera, yet stopped by this guy who is trying too hard.
This couple is styling their chill body language. They approve. Respect!
The leader and follower friend couple in black seems too common at this venue. Yes, be protective of your friend because she gets hit on more than you. Perhaps it’s because she chose not to wear the default choice of black and spiced it up with some silver and two-tone hair personality, I mean hair.
Okay, now the grand photo of the night where the guy is mackin’. Just look how this girl is not only attracted but leaning on the violet colored stain shirt guy. And what’s the in her pocket? A bottle opener which means she’s having so much fun with this guy that she doesn’t have to worry about working. Way to go stained pink shirt cool guy!
