What I Wore:: Flannel+Leather Day&Night

Tuesday, Tuesday, Tuesday.
Is it really you already?
 
I'm in a dress-hangover from the Oscars. As far as I know, it's still Sunday.
Is that you Lupita Nyong'o?
 
Let's begin this snow-filled and bristle-y morning with warm coffee, Frasier re-runs, and some easy pieces that make getting out of bed not quite so curse-word-ridden and plain miserable.
Oh, shiiiiiiiii-----
 
Shall we?
Only if you're in.
I'm not getting cold feet for nothing, you hear me?

Dusk falls, and night descends upon us.
Whatever shall we do?
 
I traded my faux fur vest for a faux and leather jacket for warmth, brought in a statement necklace and bauble ring, and opted for lace-up, tough black booties rather than flats. Hey, it's still chilly here! A girl's gotta keep warm, eh? Swipe on some lilac lipstick, dubbed the newest "IT" shade by insiders for spring, and grab a margarita. Well, that's optional, I guesssssssss (cough, No-Fun-Nancy, cough).  And, there, you have it all, young (style) soldier.

(Great)
...Night

So, this weekend (besides looking good, duh! Bwaha) I ventured to downtown Brooklyn to The Brooklyn Tabernacle Church to appease my starving ears and listen to their world-renowned choir. And, by world-renowned, I also mean Grammy-winning. The church itself was originally established down the street in 1847, but after a series of accidents and mishaps, it is currently housed in what was once an old vaudeville theater with renovations to boot. To say that it is simply "gorgeous," would be a gross understatement, but you should see it all for yourself, if you have the opportunity. Even if you're simply a glutton for history or architecture.

Whatever your faith or religion may be, or lack thereof (no judgment), don't allow the term "church" to deter you from seeing and hearing this totally remarkable collection of voices. All beliefs aside, the sheer number of bodies, singing together...powerful.

I honestly believe that any house of music and comradery stands as one of the simplest and truest cures for pain. Whatever may ail you. Walls like these and the fellowship that occurs within them, the voices brought together and music that is shared among thousands, provide solace and healing.
