GRINSPOON


It has been two long months between shows for me so when I found out that Grinspoon were Headlining a concert for the QLD Flood benefit I was jumping around with excitement. With more and more bands turning towards more electronic sounds it's really rare for me to find an Australian band who can put on a pure Rock show and actually impress me. I have seen Grinspoon perform many times and every show is better than the previous, they are a band who constantly grow and put every ounce of effort they have into each performance. As for frontman Phil what can I say? What a crowd pleaser! His constant jokes and dance moves have the crowd eating out of his hand. Saturday nights show was nothing short of amazing, a real Rock Show. Grinspoon played for just over an hour and had a set full of hits; "No Reason, Chemical Heart, Lost Control, Hard Act To Follow, Ready One, More Than You Are, Rockshow and Champion" all made an appearance. At the moment Australian Rock Music is not what it used to be more and more bands are taking a more electronic edge or doing a complete 180 and going more folky (think Angus and Julia Stone) I really miss the feeling I had when I was 14 and 15 in High School and would go and see a rock show with my friends and would walk out speechless (ok so this was only 7 years ago but still). Grinspoons show really brought back those memories, if you ever get a chance to go to one of their shows I would highly recommend it! If you aren't a fan of their music then maybe Phil's dance moves could convert you?

WHAT DID I WEAR?

It's very very rare that I see a whole outfit on a model or in a catalogue/online and end up wanting to wear the EXACT same thing. Actually I can't even remember when it last happened? I have a very distinct style – I never wear jeans or shorts and I live in dresses! I'm a true pear shape my top half is about 2 sizes smaller than my bottom so I'm very picky when it comes to finding dresses I like. I know I've said it many times but I'm a rock chick at heart! Style wise I adore edgy, dark yet feminine clothes. I call my style 'glam rock n roll queen”, make up wise I keep most of it simple but always make my lips pop with an awesome color! I saw the photos of City Chic model Courtney advertising the Pleather Biker Jacket online and instantly fell in love with her whole outfit, she looks even more stunning than usual! The outfit oozes sexy yet flattering style and of course screams ROCK CHICK. I already had the Vinyl Waistband Tunic in my wardrobe and wear it all the time it's so comfortable and it fits amazingly well! The vinyl band is what sells me, it means that unlike other dresses it actually fits my waist and doesn't 'swim' around it. I had to rush online and get the Pleather Jacket which has been a hit seller, I now know why it is stunning! I added my new favourite Pink Lipstick and my quirky yet adorable frankenstein cameo ring from Dropdead Gorgeous Couture and I was ready to rock the show!

What do you think of my copy cat outfit?

May is looking to be a very exciting concert month for me! I am counting down the days to the Katy Perry concert which I will be writing about on here and also have a Katy Perry song inspired post coming for you! As usual, to keep up to date with all things City Chic keep checking the Inside Chic blog and also the Facebook Page.


Until Next Time,
