My jaw just about hit the floor when I went onstage for our pre-show jam session. At 15 til curtain, we were already at 3/4 capacity. I have never seen anything like it. People were singing with us, sipping their drinks, and cheering us on. By the time the actual show started, I felt like a bona fide rock star.
Guys, you have to come see this show. We open Saturday, and we've already played to a full house.
Now, about Thrifty Thursday: I'm starting a new series called Thrifty Disasters - and it's exactly what it sounds like. For this first set, I'm highlighting a particularly dangerous section - outerwear.
Here's a jacket that's covered in tiny black and white worms.
This is a personal favorite - for someone who wants the right blend of casual and classy, consider this one-piece dream. Careful, though - if someone asks to take your coat, you may be revealed for the fraud you are.
This one made me feel like Janet Jackson.
I actually almost bought it - it's very Halloween - but the collar was stained to oblivion. It looked like someone had a seizure while holding a mug of coffee.
And here, a blindingly pink blazer whose hue puts Pepto Bismal to shame.
...wait. Is it actually kind of adorable?
Oh, crap, it is.
Yeah, I totally took it home.
Just goes to show - you never know what will look great until it's on your body.
