My Outfit Monday: Pantyrock
Here's something you don't see on here every day: Me playing guitar in my underwear.
I realize I'm pushing my limits here, posting such a scene on a blog owned and operated by a family newspaper. Plus, I know my mom reads this daily and she raised me better than this. However, it's Monday morning and we could all use a little excitement, so it is with great pleasure that I present to you a photo taken on Saturday night.
This is me (center stage) playing at the Emerald Bar in St. Petersburg, part of the Antiwarpt Music Festival, a multi-venue event that wound up being wildly successful, if not beastly hot. The entire block was packed, and inside the tiny Emerald, it felt like a steamy sauna. I originally wore a denim skirt that felt more and more heavy and stiff as showtime got closer.
Fortunately, I had on a pair of Target bloomers screen-printed with my band's name, plus I was wearing fishnet hose underneath, PLUS it WAS a rock show. Anything goes. I felt so much better after removing the skintight, oppressing skirt. A special thank you to my friend Matt Simmons for standing on a chair and snapping this photo with his iPhone, capturing this magical moment forever.
Here's a closeup of the wares, created by my bandmate Melissa with the band name on the front, and in the back, the popular music count intro "1-2-3-4." Enjoy.
