I survived Friday night karaoke!!! No one left with hearing loss, and I didn’t see any with their hands over their ears. Haha! Actually, I have to say I ended up having a VERY good time. It probably helped that we were almost the only people in the place. There was another couple in the room next door who heard us singing, and came over to join us. Some of the songs we song were Delta Dawn (Sandy’s favorite), Suspicious Minds, Friends In Low Places (my personal favorite), and Crazy by Patsy Cline (Bertha’s favorite). I tried to make everyone pass their cell phones forward before we started, but that didn’t happen. Haha I hope no one got video, only pictures. There was only one microphone, and since there was al least 8 of us singing, no one person was really heard. Since that was the case, I didn’t mind belting it out. I hope I will still be able to talk at tomorrow’s at the District meeting.This is what I wore to karaoke and dinner. It was just us women from our woman’s club, for the most part. I thought this would look nice, but still be comfortable. The fact that these are pull on, elastic waist, pants had absolutely nothing to do with anything. Lol! My blouse is from Van Heusen. I know, this is making you think I really need to start going in Van Heusen more often. You can’t see, even in this close up, but it has a sea foam blue color running through the design. Here is a similar blouseThat is why I chose to carry my blue Dooney & Bourke purse, to pick up on the blue. Here is a beautiful Dooney satchel, and here is one that comes in lots of colors. I have on a pair of navy Van Heusen capri pants. They have just enough stretch in them to make them comfortable, and also they don’t seem to grow bigger as the day wears on. Don’t you just hate it when your pants fit in the morning, and by afternoon you can go to the bathroom without having to un-zip them? Here is a similar pair, and here is a plus size option.
You can see a close-up of these shoes. They are by G.I.L.I. and I bought them at the QVC store in town. They are quite a bit higher than I normally wear, and even Joe raised an eyebrow when I walked in work. I like the chunk heel, but these do put a lot of pressure on the balls of your feet. Here is a nice similar pair.What can I say, I was bored with taking pictures. Hahaha Anyway, my GORGEOUS glass necklace is a 1920’s vintage necklace. I am telling you, you need to go to antique markets and flea markets. You don’t find one of a kind pieces like this in the stores. My red carved bakelite bracelet matches the necklace well. Here is a necklace, I hesitate to call it similar, but it is red and it does have dangles. hahaThis might have been the look of a few people at the restaurant tonight. Just saying………
I have a BRAND NEW blog for you to check out!!! My daughter-in-law has started a blog and she is just going to start telling a few people today. She is the one who is in this video that you might have already seen. She is absolutely adorable, and since she is justing starting out, she is in need of some views. If you have the time, could you please pop over to twentysomethingfashion and leave her an encouraging comment. I realize that this is probably not the type blogs you normally look at, but if you like it you might can tell your daughters, granddaughters, or co-workers, etc. It is hard when you first start out. I appreciate how lucky I have been to have developed a following that is so very, very, nice. I’m talking about you gurls!!!
