i have joined a band! Chains Required in sonora. they are a "neo-soul/funk" band, and THEY ARE AWESOME. link1 link2 link3
check those videos out... you'll be blown away. every rehearsal is a major jam sesh, and i am just floored every time at how incredible these musicians are. i am truly honored and SO SO excited to start performing with them!
my first show is on feb. 24, 2017... and i am nervous.
not about singing - but about what to wear!!!! ha ha... naturally. here's what i'm thinking...
the other vocalist, casie, is REALLY cool. and her voice is INSANE. so i have my work cut out for me... not only vocally, but style-wise, too. i know it's kind of a froufrou thing to worry about, but i ALWAYS worry about what to wear ... and i especially worry about my hair ;D ha! ohhhh the joys of having my brain.
i am thinking i am mostly going to be pretty boho. i have just naturally gravitated more to this style lately, for "dress clothes". not necessarily in day-to-day wear... for that i'm still ... like, 90's mixed with soccer mom... i don't know. i can never get a handle on my day to day style. but i've pretty much settled into a casual/semi-dressy boho style for going out, and when i need to really dress up fancy-like. here are some looks i could probably pull off - without looking like too much of a poser... wait, the kids call em "hipsters" these days... but i can't be a hipster, since my natural style is from the decade they are trying to emulate... right? ;D
i love both these looks (especially drew...) but they are casual. so i would have to dress them both up with a fair amount of accessories. i have been stocking up on huge sparkly necklaces from bauble bar, just for this reason ;D i LOOOOVE that red coat though, oof! i'd be sweating in .05 seconds and have to drop it or have a heat stroke, unfortunately.
this pattern is SO GORGEOUS. can you imagine an ivory kimono with this flowing down the back of it? ugghhh!!!!!
i have really been stocking up on rings, lately. it'll be so fun to be able to wear rings on stage! i usually can't because i'm playing the piano and they fly off... but since i am ONLY singing - yeahhhh!!!!! rings, ho!
AHHHHH!!!! look at her accessories collection! i could die. that is what my entire bedroom will look like in heaven.
i need all these necklaces, immediately. please, and thank you.
i'm thinking something pretty and simple like this for my first show. then i'll get crazier as time goes on, but to start - i don't want to scare anyone by coming outta the gate too insane. cuz goodness knows - i can overdo it when i'm trying to be cool.... i still have no clue what that means ;D so this is my closest guess... and i think i could pull it off. i want that dream catcher necklace!
i love both of these looks, and they'd be a lot dressier with black pants... easy!
OMG THIS PIC! amaaaaaazing. if i had that little body - i would never bother with clothes.... look at those beautiful windows! ah! in my heart - this is the back of an rv! MY FUTURE RV!
sooooooooooooooo beautiful. with grey tights, high brown boots and a long sweater vest or something? i'm so on board. this is probably the closest to how i've been dressing lately... in fact - i just realized i described my current "uniform", ha ha :D
the next set of pics is my new favorite shirt of all time... i used to wear dresses with this cut (we called it "baby doll"), but after the 90's - they stopped making them almost all together. they've come back in tops, and in a big way. i will own them ALL.
i would literally wear the above top EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. omg. i'd wear it with jeans, skirts, dress pants, and i'd wear it OVER every single shirt i own... MUST. FIND. MUST. HAVE. MUST. LOVE.
i'll be sure to post pics of my band wardrobe as it expands... as well as lots of pics from shows. in conclusion - i would like to say - these two pics give me feelings. sigh. <3
