Am I Blue?

I waited a long time before wearing this lovely electric blue silk Seduce dress. And now summer is over before it's began! Still, I didn't have to turn on the aircon in the bedroom once this whole summer. That's what I call good weather.  I shall have to get a move on to get through all the summer dresses I've yet to wear. I either need many more gigs or dress other singers! I have tried to dress my boyfriends' sister and she looks fabulous in a lot of my gear but she's too shy to wear them. Shame!
Anyway, here's Deed I Do. I love this song and we had a special guest, Howard Cains on the double bass.

This Can't Be Love

I saved my new Polici harem pants (remember my obsession) for last Friday and promptly dropped my dinner on them! I hope the dry cleaner will be my hero.  Then I came down with a massive migraine that lasted for 4 full days and so this little modest weekly posting is very late! I'm never sure what an outfit will look like on camera. It's total hit and miss. I think the harem line needs a shorter top so that even though the hips are full you still have a waist. I wore them with a little sequined bolero I found at Sportsgirl ages ago and it was all very beige! I think I'll have to go back to some intense color.
Here's the band with This Can't Be Love.

Sometimes I'm Happy.

It's a lovely thing when a band grows and gets more and more in tune (no pun intended) with each others musical language. I've been working hard on my singing by using Cari Cole's Warm up exercises.
http://www.caricole.com/    I haven't looked at her other stuff but the exercises are really good. If you're singer I highly recommend them as a daily workout.

This week I chose the first two songs because the crowd wasn't too noisy yet. It really is the only disadvantage working in a big cafe. People won't shut up! Plus the coffee machine...one day I will have my own venue! Here's Sometimes I'm Happy (think Sarah Vaughan) and My Foolish heart (think Carmen McRea). I wore a lovely little dress that I found on Chapel Street about 4 years ago and just hadn't worn yet. My bad. I teamed with some Italian Fem Blu lavender pumps which come from an outlet shop not too far from me and my fantastic HUGE flower ring that I found on the Modnique website.

Harem Scarem!


I admit it. I'm hooked on Harem Pants! I love that draped front and the tight ankles in all types of fabric and I hope they stay in fashion for a long time because I have a lot of them now.  I made an attempt to do some Ebay selling to pay for my new pants but no joy. So if you see something on the blog you like just contact me directly and we'll work something out! I'm wearing my Y3's (which you'll see in the video) that I got from THE OUTNET  http://www.theoutnet.com/ which lets you choose from a US site or an English site. The US site is the same in currency so I'd head for that site. Once again it was a hot night and I had another shirt planned but I decided to go with a pretty little Lisa Ho top I found on Ebay.     Oh, and the lovely little yellow sandals are Cole Hann that I picked up in the states a couple of years ago out at Camarrillo Outlet shops which is more like a small city.
(That's the lovely Vincent there on Bass)  
The video this week is Pixie Lott's little tune Mama Do which I'd like to record with my jazz band!
