Beat Surrender

I like to be comfortable when I go to a concert, but I don’t want to surrender my fashionista ways.  I once wore 4 inch heels to see Dave Gahan in concert, and although I loved my look, I ultimately paid the price in pain and inconvenience.  I was in pain because I’m one to stand for the majority of a show and by the fifth song, my feet were done.  Then it was inconvenient because there was a point where everyone rushed the stage during an encore, and trying to run down an incline of stairs in 4 in heels was almost not worth it, except that it was Dave Gahan and that would be the closest I would ever get to him, with or without Depeche Mode!  This is an outfit which would be perfect for me for any concert, from an outdoor festival to a seated event because it’s comfortable, it’s easy, and not fussy.  Although the shoes I’m wearing are heeled, they are wedged and low enough to be comfortable.  And what could be more convenient than a backpack?  I usually hesitate when it comes to backpacks, but this one is cute and functional.  This is definitely my concert bag of choice this summer.  Finally to complete the outfit, I can just play up the accessories, like wearing cool pieces of jewelry or don a hat.  Concert ready?  Why yes I am!

  1. I have The Cult this summer, and I’m already planning my look! Cult Electric, t-shirt, of course, and skinnies, but the shoes…they always get me! Need to NOT pay the price and be able to stand for hours. But I need a heel to give me some height. Oh, what to do? I think a new boot or bootie is in my future.
