Hanging Tough, While Looking Fierce!
Hello heart breakers! I am back with a fashion and entertainment combo today! Some of you might already know this due to my announcements of Twitter, Youtube, and Facebook. However, a few of you might still be left out in the dark haha. Last week was pretty amazing. Why you ask?? Well because I went to see New Kids On The Block and The Back Street Boys in concert! NKOTBSB definitely put on a good show. The boys sang all of their classic hits plus some new stuff. It was not a dull drab show that might be expected from middle aged entertainers. The guys were going hard like they were still in their prime. NKOTB had more stamina than most guys in their 20's lol! Their vocals were on point as well! The guys took turns performing hits from each bands hay day, and they even joined forces on some songs throughout the show as well.
It was like watching a super boy band on steroids or something-definitely what I expected and much more! I danced the entire night...in my seat of course. We were seated in a box, so I didn't want to let loose lol. Plus hubby was with me looking bored and depressed the entire time...poor guy. Okay, so the pic below shows him smiling lol. That was taken while we we waiting for the show to begin. After the show started, the smiling stopped haha. Oh well, he didn't stop my fun time...it was a blast. I felt 5 years old all over again.
Now onto more important matters- what I wore to the show! We got our tickets literally 3 days before the show, so I didn't have time to order an official NKOTB shirt online. I didn't let that stop me though. I am an avid DIY kind of gal' so I immediately started working on making my own custom shirt for the show. I headed to Michael's' and bought a pack of plain white t-shirts, some new Fiskar scissors, and iron on transfer paper. I then cut my plain white shirt into a crop top style and shredded the sleeves. I watched a few Youtube videos to get a feel for the shredding thing, but it was super easy and fun! Anywho, I then created a "design" in MS word and printed it onto my transfer paper. I then ironed the design onto the front of my crop top and tadaaaa...I had an amazing shirt. The project was fun and simple.
I paired my crop top with a high-waisted pin striped pencil skirt, a black tank top, white and black pumps, red wayfarer sunglasses with clear frames, and a yellow handbag. I added the yellow for a punch of something different and fun. As far as jewelry goes... I wore a fun Mardi Gras necklace, red hoops earrings, and a red bangle. I also wore yellow nail polish on my feet and hands. For my hair, I wore "Drew" styled in a ponytail. Please click here to see a video on my outfit!
