So they’re my baby brother’s band. The WZRDZ, my favourite band ever, put on a ridiculously magical live show. Have never laughed and danced and then kept laughing and dancing as much as I did when they played Lucky Bar in Victoria this weekend.
Wore my husband’s vintage Vancouver shirt, my vintage eel-skin bag and more bracelets than you can shake a wand at.
Didn’t rock my Gryffindor cape after all and I got reprimanded by a gentleman in a Harry Potter costume because of it (I won’t let you down next time, Elliott.).
Also wore my favourite boots. A few of you were asking where I found them (Nordstrom, last year) but I did see a similar pair by Sam Edelman at Freedman in Victoria this past weekend.
I also got a little crafty with my vintage jean jacket and sewed on a couple patches (the one above I found at Rugby in New York).
I know you’ve been sewing badges on things since you were in Brownies but I’m not as crafty as you are. Nor am I as magical.
Hocus pocus, friends, I cannot wait ’til the WZRDZ play Vancouver!
always awesome to watch someone you know rock out
yeah for WZRDS – sounds like fun!
hooray also for patches – they rule. like that one on the shoulder you got. I remember sewing these on EVERYTHING when i was in highschool – backpacks, cardigan sweaters, hats. Best way to personalize, besides bedazzling anyways.
The videos turned out amazing, I will post a link to some videos for those interested in a day or two.
Oh the pictures are awesome…have fun..
I absolutly ADORE your bag…..
Congrats to your little bro and his band on a fab show, and to you on a fun rocker chic look!
Nadia — watching someone you know perform is the best thing ever, isn’t it?
Liv — thanks for reminding me. I wonder if my ma still has my bedazzler in storage.
Bruce — can’t wait to see videos from the show!
Naaz — thank you! Can’t wait until they play in Vancouver.
Sofia — gotta love eel skin, baby!
CC — thanks! I’m such a proud big sis.
Now that you mentioned it, I’ll definitely sew on some patches in one or a couple of my denim jackets. I kind of get bored of them at times so yes, patches will definitely do the trick.
OMG! YOU solely know how to STYLISHLY ROCK and ROLL ! ! !:)
He sure wont get better review than yours :) btw his band got a cool name
And must say i love the star badge on your denim jacket, so cool
I love the patches!! What a great idea!
You look absolutely adorable; and WZRDZ is such a cute name for a band – I even like the spelling! :)
That denim jacket looks absolutely fantastic. I sooo need to get one. And I am loving that red bag :) Hope you’re having a beautiful day dear.
