girl you know it's true

i went out with women folk tonight. it was a bunch of stone-cold sober moms eating mexican food and singing karaoke. i even broke out the false eyelashes for the occasion.
jacket- target
t shirt- gap
skinny cargo pants- target
shoes- jessica simpson
clutch- steve madden

gangsta lean-
 ps- as much as i like the song dixieland delight, it's not the best karaoke song. there was about 5 minutes of just instrumental music between lyrics. i found myself resorting to clogging and doing elaine-from-seinfeld style dancing. it was as bad as it sounds.
a few karaoke thoughts:
1. it's pretty much awesome. i'd like to kiss the japanese man who invented the first machine.
2. people who take themselves too seriously and think they are displaying actual talent are really downers.
3. i really need to practice some dance moves in the off season.
4. slow songs should be reserved for the car or the shower.
5. i really like having control of a microphone.
6. there were more voices cracking than a 13 year old boy's gym class.

You are so brave! Having such a great outfit makes getting up in front of others much easier! Love the color combo!

YOu are so much braver than I! Love the khaki and olive mix and your metallic shoe is gorgeous!

I am sorry that I missed it. Solo karaoke seems a lot more intimidating than standing up & blending in with a group of fellow cracklers.

Your outfit is adorable and your random karaoke thoughts are simply hilarious! The pictures were great. I could never do this - unfortunately I'm one of those people that takes myself too serious sometimes.
