My Bloody Valentine

Yesterday I wore THE most adorable purple and yellow watercolor patterns dress with yellow leather kitten heels to work. Adorable. But I didn’t get pictures because I dashed home and had 30 minutes to down a bowl of cereal and change clothes so we could go see My Bloody Valentine play at the Palladium Ballroom in Dallas.

I did however; manage to snap a few pictures of what I wore to the show.

I tend to go for comfort over fashion when I’m going to a show. I mean, it’s dark, no one can see how cute you look. And you have to stand for upwards of 3-4 hours, and no amount of looking awesome in those heels is worth it (Seriously, girls who wear heels to shows really confuse me).

And I'm just saying, this dress is not quite as "boob tube" looking in real life.

The show was amazing, by the way. It was a full on aural assault. It was an experience. It was so loud it was like being inside a jet engine. It was beautiful and magic and when I closed my eyes it was like an out of body experience. There was nothing but the sound.


Dress, Victoria’s Secret
Sandals, shoes.com (I don't recall the brand and it has worn off)
Bracelet, http://www.shopruche.com/
Bird necklace, http://www.loveerindesigns.etsy.com/
multi chain necklace, self made from recycled materials
watch necklace, http://www.finkgifts.etsy.com/

*P.S. I’ll be telling you all about the new button over there soon, the Frugal Fashion Focus button? It’s pretty cool, actually.

Since I read your blog in Google Reader, I didn't realize that you have an Etsy shop. You've got some really cute designs up there. I'm eyeing the bee hoops and the peacock earrings. If the dentist doesn't take all my money....

Ahhh I'm so jealous. The show sounds just as amazing as I imagined it would be. You look adorable in that dress!

The only reason I can see to wear heels to a show is in order to be able to see over the head of that tall guy who always stands in front of you.

You look adorable, btw.

Haha, I agree with Audi ... and you! Heels at a show are NEVER a good plan.

Sounds like you had a blast!

"Boob tube" would have never entered my mind if you hadn't said it. You look adorable, and man oh man, it made me miss living somewhere I could wear such a tiny dress and sandals with nothing on my arms, legs, neck, feet, and head. It's 46 this morning!!!
