Newcomers to the (Ef)Face: Check These Out!

Wicked Cool

 
This dress makes me feel like some sort of amazon princess...it's a statement piece that doesn't overwhelm, it's easy and comfortable, and it's just a little bit of sexy without being overly so. 

And it always seems to be the dress I pick to wear to shows.  This dress has seen the Cirque du Soleil, Josh Groban (I think...), and now it escorted me to see Wicked in Milwaukee.  Great show!  I was obsessed with it in high school, and I was pleased to find out I still knew all the words! 



I'd seen Wicked once before in Chicago, and this cast blew that one away!!! Amazing!!!
Elphaba – Jennifer Dinoia 

(Had a voice like BUTTER.  Well...very strong, resounding butter..?)
 
 

Glinda – Haley Podschun 

(Was so perky.  SO.  PERKY.  And super ripped!  I guess prancing all over the stage gives a girl some serious muscle definition.)
 

Fiyero – Billy Harringan Tighe 

(Yum...and oh yeah, he can sing and dance, too.)

So here is the gorgeous gal I have to thank for this magnificent evening:  EMILEE.


That picture is us at the Safehouse Bar and Restaurant.  It's a Milwaukee (hidden) landmark.  The entrance is secret, and the doorkeeper asks you for a password.  If you don't know the password--BEWARE; you just might have to do something silly to prove you are a friend.  The entire place is spy-themed: food, drinks, memorabilia covering the walls, secret passages and puzzles, etc.  It's one of my favorite spots in Milwaukee!  Find it, if you can...dun dun dunnnnnn... (hint-hint--GPS will take you there.)

Anyway, our dessert was something called "Bond's Bomb."  It's mint ice cream covered with a hard chocolate shell.  And there's a lit "fuse" in the top!  How stinkin' cute is that?


On Me:
Dress: Charlotte Russe || Shoes: Nine West || Clutch: DB || Jewelry: gifted

Anyway, THANKS for reading! 
and I'll see you soon!
