Rock Of Ages

I have a confession to make; I am a Musical NERD! I am obsessed with Musicals, I enjoy them as much as Festivals and Gigs, they bring me so much happiness, over the past few years I have seen many; Saturday Night Fever, The Rocky Horror Picture Show, Sound of Music, Grease, I could go on but for your sake I won't. At the start of the year I came across the Musical 'Rock Of Ages' a Broadway Musical which was at that time making its debut in Melbourne. What intrigued me about the show was that it was made up of some of my favorite 80s songs and also featured one of my favorite Australian musicians as the lead role (Justin Burford, the singer from End Of Fashion). I considered hopping on a plane and making my way to Melbourne to catch the show but I resisted and I am glad I did because Rock Of Ages opened this weekend in Brisbane and I finally got to see it!

I don't want to spoil the story line but I will just say if you are a huge fan of 80's music like myself and rate bands like Bon Jovi, Journey, Foreigner, and Whitesnake as some of your favorites then I urge you to look out for a performance near you. I enjoyed the show more than I have enjoyed some of the Concerts I have been to. The Cast are so energetic, they perform flawlessly and Justin's voice left me speechless. Rock Of Ages will have you laughing, singing, and wanting to jump on your feet and dance within the first few minutes of the opening number.

First of all, please excuse the mirror shot but I quickly snapped an outfit pic before I rushed out the door and was so caught up in my excitement that I forgot to snap another at the show. I wore my favorite City Chic piece the Fringe Detail Tunic I know I have raved about this tunic in past posts but I just love it so much. I think it is extremely flattering and most importantly I feel comfortable and incredibly confident when I wear it. The fringe detail gives it a bit of a quirky edge. I love it so much that I ordered a second one to keep because I know I will wear this until it either becomes see through or falls apart. I have only just embraced waist belts and I don't know what I was so scared of, I adore my Diamante Bow Belt and I think it adds a cute touch to my outfit.

Have you checked out City Chic's latest collection 'Mad About Men?' I know I love mostly black outfits but I must admit I am really loving the colors. I love the Key To My Heart tunic, it is perfect for these warmer days and could even be worn to one of the Summer Festivals coming up. I am in love with the Skater Girl Dress it can be dressed up with some funky accessories and heels for your work Christmas party or teamed with flats for a cute Summer BBQ dress.

 What are some of your favorite pieces from the collection?
