I had a friend chide me recently that I don’t go out at night enough on weekends. I think the thought process is that I live in New York City, so it’s my civic duty as a Citizen of the Most Badass Metropolis On The East Coast to go dance on table tops and live some kind of Sex and the City existence. Which is hilarious to me. I mean, I live here…the operative word being “live.” I have a job and deadlines and dry cleaning and like to curl up with bad tv as much as the next person. Dancing on table tops isn’t something I do a lot.
Rock concerts, on the other hand? I’m the first in line for the ticket, and I’m the first one to tear it up in the seats. I live for live music shows, so I thought I’d highlight a look for an upcoming show.
I won’t belabor the look. The t-shirt is one of about 600 graphic and printed tees I have in my wardrobe. I live the majority of my life in slogan tees, wicked jackets and rocker pants. I mean, it’s Chewbacca in mirrored shades. How can you resist? See also: I’m a rabid Star Wars fan. Always have been, always will be.
The leggings are like leather-covered liquid Spanx and are from hot designer David Lerner (and by hot, I mean he is talented and also gorgeous.) David is a man who loves women, and the affection is in the construction and details. They feel like sweatpants, they suck in and deliver the meanest legs on Earth. He’s a celebrity staple because of that. Get involved with his designs, ladies. GET INVOLVED.
The shoes are Nine West Love Fury pumps, the handbag is from J.Crew. The handbag is hilarious because someone bought it online and returned it in front of me in line while I was waiting to pay for something else. I just told the guy not to even bother tagging it for the floor, that it was coming home with me.
And the concert to which I’m wearing this get-up? Alice Cooper, baby. Rock on, ladies, and Happy Monday!
