We don't have Jewel's voice but we can steal her boho style
Widely-known fact about Stephanie and me: We 'ship at the throne of Jewel. The poet-songstress first commanded our hearts in the mid '90s with hits like "You Were Meant for Me," "Who Will Save Your Soul" and "Foolish Games," the latter inspiring many, many karaoke turns in Steph's living room, to the delight of everyone around, we are sure.
So we couldn't resist the chance to see our adolescent muse in person at the Capitol Theatre in Clearwater on Sunday. Jewel is 41 now, a divorced mother of one. Her set mixed in poems and anecdotes about being a homeless teenager who stole a bunch of stuff before she was discovered. Boosted by "double wines" and amazing merchandise, Steph and I hung on to her every word.
We wore our best bohemian looks for Jewel's performance, me in a floor-length mixed-pattern dress from Anthropologie sale rack, and Stephanie in a flowy white elephant print dress (recycled from my closet!).
Jewel's look was also true to theme: a weightless navy and white printed maxi with sheer sleeves. It kept the focus on her folksy songs, and looked great with her guitar. (Did I mention she played "Morning Song"? Shocker, right?!)
Her whole vibe left me thinking how we could all incorporate a little more bohemian flare into our wardrobes. Scan the slideshow for looks from LOFT, ModCloth, Ashe Couture, and Rent the Runway (for special bocasions).
Oh, and then Jewel retweeted me.
