{It's Too Darn Hot!} Summer Outfit Favorites from Pin Up Girl & ModCloth

 Sometimes, the Summer heat is simply too much to bear. When I can't beat the heat I know it is time for me to pull out my favorite summer tunes (Buena Vista Social Club & Brazil 66) and put on my "coolest" summer garb. Can't beat it? Join it! Fruit! Travel! Tiki! Whatever makes me feel that too darn hot can also be so darn fabulous!

What are your favorite summer dresses?

Over the weekend we had a birthday party with friends, successful food and celebrations, {taco party!} birthday gifts galore for Husband. Then Saturday --- stage lights, live theatre, and a standing ovation after our show!  A beautiful end to the weekend, Sunday, just the pups & us relaxing and happy.

But now, on the verge of a tour, there is much to do! Tonight, burlesque meeting - Wednesday jazz rehearsal then more rehearsals at night - Thursday {hair and nails thank goodness} - Friday burlesque show - Saturday jazz show - Sunday...

hopefully, not one thing, but summer treasures.

A Studio Photo Shoot }


A few weeks ago I had the absolute pleasure of shooting with Jme Lacombe of Cherry Bones Photography --- the kind of lovely & inspirational experience for which every model/performer/dreamer hopes. Desiring to capture the aesthetic version of my debut record (that is to say music as a visual,) we shot in the studio, Sunbird Studios, where my record was recorded. 

What an evening! Shooting into the night --- using pianos, mics and other studio treasures... There are many many more photos to share of course, but those are secretly hidden away until they can make their debut.

Finally feeling like a human again after an awful week spent in bed recovering
from illness deluxe. Feeling very happy to have had the support of family and
my darling husband all the while.

... but back to work! The Stardust Band & I rehearsed lots yesterday, many
new tunes to share with you at our show July 19th at the Brass House.
A few of the newbies:

"Stardust"
"You'd Be So Nice to Come Home To"
"I Won't Dance"

Excited? Come to the show to see/hear the others! Happy Monday!
