Sitting on a Park Bench, That's Older Than My Country
This was taken some time in October. I wore this outfit for work/going out after. I needed an outfit that was appropriate enough for work but could also look casual enough for a Minus the Bear show.Honestly I felt a little bit Debbie Harry meets Alexa Chung. The vest and patent oxford brogues being something miss Chung would wear and the rest being the former's choice of attire.
Jacket:Faux Leather Shrunken Motorcycle Jacket(Charlotte Russe)
Vest:Black Sweater Knit Vest(forever21)
Dress:Sailor Striped Jersey Dress(H&M)
Shoes:Patent Black Oxford Brogues(Buffalo Exchange)
Bag:Vintage Black Saddle Bag(Thrifted)
Sunglasses:Vintage Club Masters(Flea Market)
The show was seriously one of the best shows I have been to in probably ever. They sounded amazing live and true to form.It was just one of those shows that wasn't too pretentious and a real chill vibe....very west coast!!!(They're from Seattle)
There was a bit of craziness for me, right before the show. After work I went to get on the train to go meet Danielle at our meeting spot to head over to the venue when I got this crazy pang of realization. I Left My Ticket At Work!!!!! At this point I had already made it to the station where I needed to transfer to another train. I had to go back one stop get back to work and only to realize no one was there anymore. So in a panic I told Danielle to go to the venue and see if she could score a ticket at face(being the price I paid for it), but no such luck. I headed over there in hope of maybe telling the ticket guy my unfortunate story and see if maybe they would let me in out of sheer generosity.(I was not going to miss this show...I waited 4 years to go see them).Finally I told my story to at least 4 people before I could actually tell the manager(who had the final say) and with some eyelash batting and puppy dog eyes he let me in with a bit of hesitation.Seriously one of the best moments of my life. I could kiss him, if...you know... I was that kind of girl.
Then to top it off the show was amazing and they played a lot of old stuff.After the show we headed over to Yaffa Cafe to get some late night eats.An awesome way to end an awesome night.
(excuse the dizzying effect, there aren't any videos that are any better than this. The band in their first albums didn't make any music videos)
