Macy's Music Fest Weekend Review (pic heavy)

FRIDAY NIGHT ROCKED! Teena Marie was awesome I really didn't take any pictures I was too busy having a good time, of course Charlie Wilson shut it down.

Jaheim was also really good but there was a, "things you will probably regret moment" when this woman (I use that term to describe gender only) who was obviously old enough to know better got up on stage and licked his sweaty chest, that's just NASTY! You know that's going to be on youtube, can't you just see how this will follow her. She goes to school for Grandparents Day and all the kids say; "your Grandma is a freak I saw her on youtube" or you don't get that promotion at work because they saw it too.

And then there was Saturday, hum, yeah. All I can say is I'm glad that Frankie was back this year, Raheem Devaugh and En Vogue were both really good, unfortunately we missed K'John. And I don't know what was going on with Ms. Erika I guess she wasn't pleased with our response to her incoherent babble and after about 20 minutes she left the stage, she didn't even sing "Window Seat" WTH. Oh well I've seen her before and she was awesome, everyone is entitled to an off night.
Now on to what I wore. Friday night I wore the eggplant jumpsuit and it became painfully clear why they're not so popular, I had to become a contortionist when trying to use the bathroom. Needless to say I probably won't ever wear it again but the wrap is great and I can see getting a lot of wear from it especially around the holidays with a LBD.

I did manage to finish the maxi dress for Saturday, it's Butterick 5489. I chose this pattern because I thought it would be simple and I could finish it quickly, which would be true if I didn't have to adhere to my sewing knits rule, which is it must be lined. Then I had an issue with the underarm, it was way to low. Thankfully I used a fix I read on someones blog (can't remember who's). I was lazy and didn't cut the extension pattern piece so it was about 4 inches to short to be a maxi I used the black contrast which turned that into a happy accident because it really made the dress. Here I am all hot and sweaty from a night of partying.

I said I didn't like this picture and my wonderful son said; 'that's cause you cheesein' all hard' gotta love him.

And now for the GTFOH, these are for you Adrienne.

No, the camera didn't mess up, he had on hot pink from head to toe.

When's the last time you saw one of these?

All in all it was a great weekend. My DD asked me if I had fun when I said yes, she said "that's good you go out once a year you should have a good time". Technically it's twice because I go Friday and Saturday lol.
