out having a damn good time! tis the season, right?!
on saturday night my friend took me to a concert. my first since the pandemic. we went to go see San Diego's very own Thee Sacred Souls.
as their name insinuates they are a soulful band with a retro 50s/60s sound. they so remind me of growing up and listening to Sam Cooke, The Temptations, Marvin Gaye with my beloved grama. she loved music. especially the vibrant sounds of that era, which she claimed was the best time of her life.
honestly, I wasn't super familiar with the band before my friend invited me, but I downloaded and listened the their debut self titled album a week before the show. I immediately loved it!
but at the show...let me tell you, I was truly BLOWN AWAY! lead singer, Josh, has a range and voice that can easily take on any R&B veteran. and the band backed up his vocals beautifully. the entire Observatory theatre was electrified for the duration of show.
it was one of those rare performances that exceeded my expectations and I cannot wait to experience them again. if Thee Sacred Souls happen to show up in your town, I highly recommend them.
music is a huge part of my life and has always served as an outlet to keep me sane! as much as I want to honor my commitments and achieve my goals, I realize its important to stay balanced by spending time doing things you enjoy with people you love. life sure ain't about working all the time.
what do you love? please, go out and do it. shamelessly!
on this chilly, late fall evening I stepped out in an all black ensemble but livened it up with a bright pink top by Elizabeth & James and white pointy toe booties by & Other Stories. of course everything I wore (excluding my earrings) was thrifted. even the shoes. scored those during my last Thrift LA trip.
i've had the top for a while and initially listed it for sale, but I loved the color and fit so much I decided to keep it for the time being. so glad I did as this bold cropped top really made the outfit. i'm currently obsessed with long sleeve, high neck tops. they serve as great layering pieces. I have the skinniest, boneist neck ever and I like to cover it up. I wish I could convert some of my ass fat to my neck/chest area but nope...all my fat travels south. I suppose there are worse problems in the world and i've found wearing these tops is a good solution for my lean body type.
i'm heading to another live show later in the week. this is actually a secret show produced by Sofar. it will be my first time attending one of their events. not sure what i'll be wearing yet, but best believe i'lll be sharing my outfit of the night with ya!
ahhh music. it really does get me high! and music + fashion together, well thats just pure bliss.
