After the turmoil and stress at work lately, boy did I need a night out!
And so on Friday, after a loooooong day at work, I slapped on some more war paint and dressed myself in my fave vintage leopard print coat for a night out with great friends.
A cute mustard bag and some op shopped bangles that I kid myself are Bakelite finished the look. (They could be!)
This coat is seriously fantastic. With such a luxurious black faux fur collar and cuffs and the softest leopard fur it makes me feel like a rock star whenever I wear it.
Of course I was a little worse for wear after getting rained on all night but I was still toasty warm.
My hair didn't much like the rain either but by the time I noticed I had already imbibed a few bevvies and wasn't caring too much! Hooray!
Whenever the husband and I get together with our mates MUCH, MUCH laughter ensues. And usually some crazy hi jinks. And more laughter. Then some shenanigans. Then more laughter.
Funny things just happen when we are all together.
And Friday night was no different.
We headed to The Corner in Richmond to shake off the week.
In amongst all the
silliness and immaturity intelligent philosophical discussions we managed to catch the AMAZING Clairy Browne and the Bangin' Rackettes.
Oh my, were this band bloody brilliant!
With the sexy undulations of the back up dancers/singers, the very cool sax sounds and the unbelievable voice of the sultry Miss Browne herself, it was an unforgettable show.
We were shimmying and shaking along with the music all night and from the look of the rest of the crowd, they couldn't help but move and groove as well. It was just the kind of music!
Yes I may still have a wee bit of a sore head today, but I got to laugh and drink and dance my worries away. And I got to wear leopard whilst I did it.
I count that as an awesome night!
Has anyone caught any great bands lately?
