and nobody knows what's gonna happen tomorrow, so don't let go, now we've come this far.
Last night was one of those rare evenings where everything felt right in the world. I headed downtown to see Duran Duran in concert. Alone. When I bought the tickets, no one I knew wanted to go with me. Instead of missing out on seeing them AGAIN, I just went for it and bought a single ticket. Before the show, and after the opening act, I just read a book and waited. It was kind of lovely. And then I saw Duran Duran perform live. After watching the concert DVD endlessly, I finally was seeing Simon Le Bon IN REAL LIFE. It was such a thrilling experience.
The concert itself was fantastic. The set list was great, and Duran Duran put on one heck of a show. But what I loved most about the evening, was the fact that I let go. Instead of worrying about what other people thought, I just let myself get carried away by the music. It felt like being on top of the world. Even thinking of now, I can't help but smile to myself.
Anyway! Here is what I wore to the concert last night!
