This dress from Chadwicks of Boston can be worn with the shoulders down, like I have done in the photos, or with one shoulder up, or both shoulders up. I also wore it to church over the weekend and put both shoulders up, and switched to flats. It was perfect for a modest look for church; yet with wedges and the shoulders down, it made for a sassy look with my girlfriends. Love the versatility!!!

The belt is detachable too, so if I want to wear it with black accessories, I can switch out the belt easily. I love this dress so much!!!

One of my favorite activities with my friends in the 1990s was attending concerts. I loved seeing live music, and being able to hear the musicians play in person; without any studio enhancements. This was before modern artists lip-synced on stage and used other “helpers” to perform. Bands used to play raw. If the singer had a strained voice, you could hear it, if someone hit a wrong note, you heard that too. It was fun and made the music real; it all came to life.

If I had some extra cash, I would purchase a tee-shirt from the concert as a memento. I always wore my shirt proudly to school the Monday after a concert, and I would integrate it into my wardrobe. Once I got to college, band tee’s were not really “cool” anymore, so I folded mine up and stored them; after all, they were my mementos.

Fast forward to 2017 and I see people wearing band tee’s again! Love it! So I found two in my coffers and decided to re-integrate them into my wardrobe for the spring season. I love vintage pieces with meaning, as well as sharing my music taste!

AC/DC was one of my favorite groups when I was in high school. I saw them in concert twice! Once at the Cow Palace in San Francisco, and once in Oakland; The Razor’s Edge tour and also the Money Talks tour. My love for the band’s music has never wavered, and I will always enjoy listening to their albums. My eight-year-old son has also taken a liking to AC/DC and he loves “Back in Black.” It is fun to be able to share my favorite music with my kids. I hope they enjoy music from my generation, as well as their own.

There is so much good music from all periods in time. I enjoy everything from Opera to classic pop to classic rock to modern music. Every musical genre has it’s own special flavor; music makes the world go round!

What is your favorite type of music? Do you have any favorite music groups that have withstood time?

AC/DC tee’s in stock around the web:

Spring is almost here! This means the weather is starting to change for the better. While we are still getting a bit of rain, temperatures are fluctuating between 35 degrees and 70 degrees. It can be winter in the morning, and spring in the afternoon! When the weather is like this, I like nothing more then to wear something comfortable, easy, and breezy for spring.

I love, love, love this shirt dress by Amour Vert. Is it really comfortable, and perfect for the weather right now as we transition from fall into spring. Although this is a winter dress, it has 3/4 sleeves and a breezy silhouette, this makes it ideal to wear in our current transitional period. Love that!

If you are not familiar with Amour Vert, they are a fabulous fashion brand based in the San Francisco Bay Area. Amour Vert takes special care to ensure their American manufacturing practices are sustainable, have zero-waste, and use of non-toxic dyes. You can read more about their story online here. Love!

I’m looking forward to wearing this shirt tunic often during the spring season. It is so cute worn as a dress, but on cooler days, it can easily be worn over leggings or skinny jeans. Love!
