back in BLACK.

1990's 'The Clash' Thermal (Ebay)
Levi's Black Jeans ($24, Levi's Store)
Leopard Creepers ($25)

Jimmy's brother is getting married Saturday, so it's been busy, busy, busy.  Plus, now that I'm doing more work for Fit Bodies Inc., my time is a little more limited (until the wedding anyway).
I woke up to 'The Beach Boys' this morning, and let me tell you; it's hard to have a bad day when it's on.  Seriously, feeling down?  Throw in the Beach Boys greatest hits and you'll be good to go :). 

I'm pretty pumped for this wedding to happen!  It's always fun to have a reason to get dressed up and dance.  I got an awesome draped 40's Velvet burn-out (repro) dress off of Ebay to wear to the ceremony.  It's coming in the mail today and I can't wait to see it!  It's been a long time since I bought myself a nice dress :).  And I've already devised a way to shorten/alter it if need be. 

Unfortunately, my rapid brain activity has taken over any instinct for me to get dressed in the morning, so its been jeans everyday.  And, trust me, you wouldn't want to see any of that!  Anywho, when we were in Chicago I went into the Levi's store (which I never, ever do), and actually walked out with a pair of jeans!  I've been looking for a good pair of lack jeans for ages, and wouldn't you know it?  They were on Clearance!  Just what I like to hear.  I'm still no Levi's convert, but I do enjoy these :). 

Ohhhh, look at those shoes!  I also got them in Chicago while we were there.  Animal print creepers?  Yes please!  And, once again, NOT an animal print convert, but I am enjoying these shoes. 

Next weekend (the 27th to be exact), I'll be opening up for Cowgirl & Sweet Ray Laurel at the Crazy Fox in Newport.  Woohoo!  I'm so happy to be getting back into the acoustic thing.  I love to sing, and I think alot of nuances are lost when you sing in a full band.  I love both- they are just really different.  Plus, since I'm a singer first, it's nice to be able for people to actually hear my voice clearly.  Remember those power chords I've been learning?  Well they finally feel natural!  ----sigh of relief----

If this week's posts are sparce, I apologize!  Things should be back to normal next week, and I have some awesome outfits stored away for the occasion :). 

I've been listening to 'April March' nonstop for the last couple days.  She's a french singer, and I love her!!  A big thanks to my friend Steve for bringing her into my world!

  1. Oh my gosh no! How did you get leopard creepers for $25? I need to buy a pair of creepers. I don't know how I'm living without them.
