Tea Party

It was Tom Hanssen's suggestion that we do Tea for Two as a really slow ballad and I just loved it. It took the story to a whole different and sad place! Love it. 
This week the weather turned quite cold so I pulled out my Bassike
 http://www.bassike.com/whats_new_for_women.html
harem pants in black (I just ordered two more pair in oatmeal and navy blue!)beacius ethey are so comfy and very cool. I teamed them with a J. Crew sequined top that my sister delivered to me in person because they won't ship to Australia. WHY NOT!???
I topped that with a little short sleeved jacket and a pair of Dolci Vita boots. I was accused of not being dressy enough in the last post but really, we are performing in a cafe not Carnegie Hall.
Here's Tea for Two just for you.

Rocking the Sister/Wife look

Sorry about last week. I just couldn't post because I hated the outfit. So not me but it turned really hot and I panicked!

This week my Review long ruffled maxi arrived from Ebay and was fabulous. I teamed it with an old Armani jacket in a lovely grey blue (one of my favorite hues) which was a perfect match. I was able to pull out my Dolci Vita blue suede shoes that I got last winter from shopbop.com but had not worn yet and there you have it. 
The groovy Sister/Wife/ Utah look in honor of my sister being here (my real sister!) from Salt lake City. This week I'm posting an original tune that I thought the band did a great job on. It's called Thin Line, a song about that point in a relationship where you have invested so much into it that you can't go back but you can't go forward either.

THIN LINE ©2011

 HOW DID I FALL IN LOVE  WITH A BOY 
          
SO DETERMINED TO FAIL ?

WHEN ALL I SEE IS HIS BEAUTY        

INSIDE AND OUT        THOUGH HE DRESSES IT IN DOUBT

AND I WANT THINGS TO MOVE         

 BUT I WANT TO MOVE THEM MY WAY

AND I WANT THINGS TO WORK OUT         

 THE WAY I PLANNED

BRIDGE

BUT YOU GOT A WAY OF DIGGIN’ IN

AND I GOT A WAY OF GIVING IN TO YOU

CHORUS:       

YOU GOT ME WALKING ON A THIN LINE

STUCK IN THE MIDDLE AND THERE’S NO TIME

AND I CAN’T GO BACK      I’M NOT GOOD AT THAT

AND I CAN’T GO ON        ‘CAUSE YOU WON’T RESPOND

AND THE LIGHTS GONE DIM       AND THE LINE’S TOO THIN

V.    I GOT SIX DIRECTIONS I CAN GO IN     

 SO WHY AM I STANDING STILL

AND I LIKE THE LITTLE HOUSE WE LIVE IN        

 BUT I GOT  A  LOT OF TIME TO KILL

I THOUGHT THE QUESTIONS WOULD BE BOTH OF OURS

BUT YOU STOLE THE   WHY’S AND NOW THEY’RE YOURS

AND STILL           THERE ARE NO ANSWERS

BRIDGE: F

BUT I GOT A WAY OF DIGGIN’ IN

AND YOU GOT A WAY OF GIVING IN TO ME

CHORUS:

BRIDGE 2:

YOU SWORE TO ME YOU KNEW

HOW TO GET US THROUGH

THEN YOU FELL ASLEEP       WITH YOUR EYES OPEN

BRIDGE   CHORUS

Pretty in Pink

I got accused of being very pink last Friday. I was wearing a little Sass dress that I love. It's very feminine being white with a small pattern of pink and green flowers with a silvery grey leaf pattern with little sequins and diamante buttons. I was wearing a hot pink slip that I found in an op shop for $2 ages ago which showed through the white material and then topped it with a hot pink cardi with little dogs beaded onto it that I found on ebay for $6. Thus...very pink! Mind you, I saw lots of pink in the audience as well so it must be in the zeitgeist. The shoes were an Ozsale.com.au purchase so very on sale. Very high, very pink!
This weeks video is a special request from one of my You tube subscribers. I love it when they ask for a song and I can accommodate!
