Happy Monday Ladies!
! Hope your holiday plans are going well, and you are able to go out and enjoy various festivities, concerts, or the like. When I was a kid, it was a tradition to see, The Nutcracker. I still love it. However, my hubby and I went to see one of my favorite swing artists and guitarists and Brian Setzer and his orchestra. Love him! I saw him in Pittsburgh and he and his band put on a swingin great time! I love swing music, and with a rockabiliy flair. I wanted to dress for the occasion, the holiday and for the show.
If you dont know him by name, I am sure you have heard, The Stray Cat Strut, or Cat on a Hot Tin Roof. Listen to him and the Christmas Show we saw
It is held in a large concert hall, and we have some nice sears in the Mezzanine. Before having EDS, I would have stood up at my seat and danced, my hubby and I even took swing dance lessons before our wedding. Well, Sat night I threw caution to the wind and just got up and danced to the swing tunes. I looked over in our section and it was me and probably 2 other women dancing! I didn’t want to be a seat dancer, reminding me of the lady on tv who sits in her chair and does chair exercises! ( Not that there is anything wrong with that!) I just find with swing, you need to move! I had a great time.
I just laugh to myself at all of the conservative men who clap their hands on their knees to the beat! Whoa, really letting loose! I am kidding, as I know everyone has their own personality and comfort zone. THe show really was amazing. I love the whole big band as well as they are a group of very talented musicians and love how Brian arranges all of the tunes. I did ask the couple behind me if they mind if I stand and dance, as I didnt want to be in their way, I am 5 foot 9, 5 , 10 with a one inch heel, and the lady said, “No! Of course not, you are just too cute!” I was a bit embarrased
I was “In the Mood” for wearing my full skirt and new rose cardi for the festive concert, so I wore this Sheinside skirt with lace tights, black kitten heels, and a Banana Republic red tactile rose cardi I found on Poshmark. I did want to do my hair in Vintage Rolls, and figured how to do it, but it was raining so I knew it wouldnt hold. I put my hair up on one side with the green jeweled hair accessory I showed in my last post. I only saw 3 other girls in more of a 50s attire. One girl in a cherry dress, another with her hair up in a bandana 50s style, and tattoos showing, and one other lady with a fuller skirt and a lace top When we walked it, I did not see a soul dressed like me. It truly was a great time!! He is an amazing musician and guitarist.
Have a wonderful week!
