GETTING READY FOR ANDRE RIEU'S CONCERT!! CAN I LOOK GLAMOROUS??








OH WELL!! I NEVER REALLY GET DRESSED UP ANYMORE...WHAT WITH BOTH BOYS AT UNI..THE SCHOOL DINNERS...ASSEMBLIES...SPEECH DAYS HAVE ALL BUT PASSED ME BY!! SO I DONT REALLY EVER GET "DRESSED UP"...AND i MEAN REALLY LOOKING THAT KIND OF EXTRA SPECIAL!

BUT A FEW POSTS AGO I TOLD HOW MY ELDER SON CAME HOME FROM UNI INTERSTATE WITH TWO (2) FRONT SEAT TICKETS FOR ANDRE RIUE'S CONCERT!!

THIS WAS A GLORIOUS GIFT FOR MY MUM (ESPECIALLY AS SHE WAS IN HOSPITAL AT THE TIME WITH HER FIRST EVER LITTLE OP)...BUT SHE HAD HER 86TH BIRHTDAY LAST WEEK..AND IS WORKING OUT WHAT SHE HAS TO WEAR TO THIS CONCERT...MUM ADORES THIS MUSIC..(I DO TOO...BUT I HAVE BECOME A BIT OF A STAY AT HOME OLD YOU KNOW WHAT...SO TO GET DRESSED UP IS QUITE NEW TO ME!!)..

S0OO THIS IS WHAT THIS BLOG IS ABOUT!! LOVELY LADIES/GIRLS ...WHAT DO YOU THINK OF WHAT I SHALL WEAR TO THIS WONDERFUL CONCERT?? HARSH CRITICISM IS WELCOME...DONT BE AFRAID!!

I HAVE THE DRESS PHOTOGRAPHED...THE SHOES...THE NECKLACE..(OF COURSE I SHALL HAVE MATCHING EARRINGS AND A FEW FAKE DIAMOND BRACELETS!!)...
AND WITH MY LONG HAIR.,.I SHALL WRAP AROUND THOSE STRANGE LOOKING RODDY THINGS...BUT THAT GIVES MY HAIR A NICE KIND OF SHIRLEY TEMPLE TYPE CURL??
KEEP THESE IN ALL DAY...(so wont go out to COLES!!).

(I HAVE INCLUDED A PHOTO OF WHAT I COULD KIND OF END UP LOOKING LIKE...TAKEN AT A FUNCTION SEVERAL YEARS AGO...SIMILAR EFFECT...BUT WAS A FEW YEARS YOUNGER THEN!!)...

anyway...just wondering if you would like to see a photo of me and mum...when we are ready to head off...and I may be able to post some photos of the concert (although cameras may be restricted...shall give it a go..and see what happens)..

Hi Andrea, i absolutely love your outfit that you are planning to wear. The concert is going to be absolutely fabulous, imagine having those superb seats! I was thinking about getting the concert as a pay per view event on tv - I wasnt all that interested but have been watching the ads and the show he puts on looks nothing short of incredible and a real spectacle so wouldnt it be exciting if i watched it and saw you as the ppv is live from Melbourne 15/11 ! You will have to hold up a banner saying Hi Mel !! Seriously though you are going to be the belle of the ball! Mel xxx

Wooo hooo foxy lady! Your dress is just stunning...I haven't been to anything lately that warrants getting REALLY dressed up, so I am extremely green with envy. I hope you have a fantastic night.
Chat soon,
