Hello fall weather!!  It’s that time everyone!  Bust out the cute trenches and light peacoats because the chilly fall nights are here. I hope everyone enjoyed their weekend.  I know I enjoyed mine!  This weekend I went to Downtown San Jose with my boyfriend to watch his friend perform in a group called “So Timeless”.  You can visit their site here.  I definitely recommend going out and catching one of their shows if they happen to perform somewhere around you.  They have such a smooth and soulful sound that makes you want to just close your eyes and be totally engulfed in their music.  You will know passion after watching them perform.  After sitting down and listening to them for a few minutes I turned to look at the crowd and realized that more and more people were trickling in as the sounds blasted out of the sound system and into the streets.  I have had the pleasure of watching them perform on more than one occasion and this time I was blown away not only by the chilly night air, but also by one of the lead singer’s attire.  It was the perfect mix for the weather without compromising looks (which is sometimes hard to do.  I know when I’m cold I’ll just pile on a sweatshirt and call it day! Cute? Who cares when I’m cold!)  Below are the key elements in her flawless outfit.


How cute it that?  From the fitted yellow peacoat, to the bright red belt, I found the outfit to be flawless and sat envious not only of her personal style, but also that mind blowing voice!  She wore a floral dress paired with a bright red belt to add color, and over that was a yellow peacoat.  But to make sure she was warm she wore gray leggings with peep toe heels. She was warm, comfortable, and still, demanded the attention from the crowd. I especially loved the color pallet she worked with, it was definitely fun but not too spring time-ish that I questioned her sanity.  Here’s to keeping it bright even when the weather is dreary!

Dance Downtown – Cathy September 18, 2009

Hello lovelies,

Tonight is the last Dance Downtown (Samba!) of the season and I wanted to share this gem of a free event with y’all. It’s in the plaza of the Music Center in downtown LA.

Imagine being in the center of the major performing arts buildings in LA (read the Walt Disney Concert Hall across the street, while the LA Opera building, Mark Taper Forum and Ahmanson Theatre are literally protectively looming over the outdoors dance plaza). Twinkle lights peek out of the trees, a live band performs in the background, all the while you’re being instructed on the dance floor by 4 instructors. The best part is it’s completely free and you can get there early to stake a claim on a surrounding table and bring your own picnic of food to share with friends. It’s magical.

It starts at 6:30pm with intro lessons and lasts until 10:30pm. So bring something to cover up if you get cold quickly. And something I learned last time was to bring covered toe shoes. That dance floor gets filled quick and the first thing to get a hello are your toes. Feeling the sassy samba mood, I’ve curled my hair and am wearing a short cotton blue BCBG dress and black strappy wedge shoes.  Pics of the festivities to come tonight.

My apologies for not starting this blog sooner so you could make plans to come. If you do come tonight, find me and you’ll be invited to my selection of wine and salami. =) It will come back in full effect every other Friday starting in May – and my offer will still stand.
