|I don't even know how to begin to explain the amazingness you see above!!|
(I so wish we had a behind the scenes photographer for photoshoots like this. It's pretty hilarious how we get everything just so.)
Confession: there was a time in my life (in 2010) when karaoke night was the highlight of my week. I was working as an intern at the Daily Gleaner newspaper in Fredericton, New Brunswick. It was my first gig out of school and I was living all the way across the country from everything I'd ever known. (IT WAS AWESOME!) And, in my newsroom were two other interns, Alex and Molly, who can both sing like you would not believe. So, every Thursday night we would head out to Boom Nightclub and we would sing and dance and enjoy $7 triples. I have the best memories of that place and those girls – like the time we sang Meredith Brooks' Bitch and Alex decided to finger the crowd, or the time Molly's mom accompanied us, just to see what all the hype was about, or the time a girl tried to undress me on the dance floor while my friends stood back asking, "Are you OK?" Good times, I tell you. There are just so many inside jokes and laughs that stem from that bar and those nights. Thinking back on all of our good times makes me want a karaoke reunion! Now, how fun would that be?
Oh yeah, this post was supposed to be about my outfit, right? Whoops. That trip down memory lane threw me right off track. So... the outfit. For a night of singing bad 80s and 90s hits, I would wear this Modcloth dress. It's comfortable. It's got an awesome pattern and it's fun to accessorize, especially with some metallic touches that pick up the colourful stage lights.
From top to bottom:
Well folks, that's it for me this week. I hope you enjoyed my goofy photoshoot. Now, before you run off to sing into your own hairbrushes, don't forget to check out what the other ladies put together for a night of singing and dancing.
