Rockin' the details

I went to a great concert last night. It was at a very small venue, where you can easily stand right up at the stage, if that's what you're into. Plus, it is only 10 minutes from my new place, and parking is readily available. This sure beats driving to Philly!


Speaking of Philly, Dr. Dog is a great Philly band. They had a ton of energy last night. They're sound is modern indie rock with hints of Beatles harmonies and soul.


Delta Spirit was one of the opening acts. I didn't recognize their name, but I actually had heard this one song before. They were really good! I would definitely go to see them again.

I have this huge collection of scarves, shawls, sashes, etc. but very rarely do I ever use them. Yesterday, I tried on this blue button down shirt, which I bought because I loved the texture of the fabric. The fit made me feel a bit shlumpy though--it's on the baggy side. I was pretty proud of myself when I got the idea of using this sash from a dress I had made in Cameroon as a belt for this top. It gave my outfit a new point of interest, and also gave the shirt some waist definition. Here's a close-up of the faux batik African wax print fabric.

What a cute idea and a great way to spruce up a top! I hope you don't mind if I totally copy you... :)

I love the tie. The fabric is perfect for it! So, I take it from your post that you live somewhere near Philly? Too bad I just moved...
