Since, 2016 is about becoming a better me inside and out, a friend suggested going to the Neo Soul Live Music and Spoken Word event at Marquette Pavilion, to celebrate her birthday. Let me be the first to say that I really enjoyed the experience. The performers were amazing and I loved how the crowd participated with the performers. The talent spectrum consisted of singers, poets, and rappers. An erotic poet even recited a couple of her poems, which I really enjoyed. I’m even thinking about attending an exclusive similar event real soon.
After the Neo Soul experience, we transitioned to karaoke night at Tilly’s, located in Calumet City, IL. It was refreshing to go in a place and see some new faces and experience a different atmosphere. Tilly’s is a restaurant that offers late night hours and karaoke on Fridays and Saturdays. Overall, I really enjoyed both places and will be attending both again in the near future.
Of course, I was a tad bit over dressed but when am I not when I go out. I found this charcoal Front and Center Rib Knit dress on Gojane, during the Black Friday specials and sales. Since, the dress was sleeveless, I wore my black fly-away faux leather blazer over the dress. The dress was a turtleneck dress but offered an opening exposing my cleavage and since wearing a necklace was out of the question I added a single stone necklace underneath the dress. I added my black lace-up peep-toe booties and teardrop studs to complete the outfit.
I will definitely be attend both affairs again in the near future.
