B O C

Category: My Outfits,Set ListsEyeliah @ 10:00 am

When I was getting ready for work on Friday Breakfast Television, the Vancouver morning show did an email contest for tickets to that nights Blue Oyster Cult show, I love live music so of course I entered. A few hours later I got a call that I won FOUR tickets and a Meet & Greet with the band. Wait….. what? So exciting.  Found three friends and after work hurried home, had a quick dinner, changed a few pieces of my outfit and off we went.

Day Look: NEW Sequin Beret, $5 at Ardene – so sweet! Highlighter Skirt, Etsy. Thrifted Pink Sweater, Faux Croc Stretch Belt and Black Booties. Stitches Leggings. Beaded Necklace looped, Ebay Lot.

Night Look: Suzy Shier Tee Shirt, Black Beads, Ebay Lot. Thrifted Black Bow Purse. Jeffrey Campbell Booties, Gift from Solestruck.

Meeting the guys I told them how I won the tickets, they were super nice and now I have this commemorative photo. Since I didn’t know much of their music going in I would have liked to meet them after, because I would have been gushing!! Our seats were best in the house and the band really kicked ass! The set list may look short with only 11 songs, but there were many (many) guitar solos as well as drum solos, bass solos…… I had no idea how talented Buck Dharma was on that guitar, he blew my mind.  And Rusy Sarzo the bassist used to play in Quiet Riot, Whitesnake and with Ozzy Osbourne – he had many fans in the audience that’s for sure.  A band that spans over four decades so glad I got the chance to see them, for free was even better. Thanks BT and BOC!

    It looks like you had an awesome time at the concert, and you won it just like that! Wow!!! Totally awesome and enough to make anyone’s day XDDD
    I’m loving your day outfit- You look really sweet! The highlighter skirt goes really well with your pink sweater and necklace. Also, I’ve been keeping my eye on a black sequined beret at Cotton On too! Too bad it’s three times the price of what you paid for ^^;
