That Shit Cray

There is no rest for the wicked! On Sunday night I was off to the O2 to see two of hip hop's finest, Jay Z and Kanye West perform. Now I've been to my fair share of concerts, but this was really something else. The atmosphere of a live concert is something you can only truly understand through experience, and this was no disappointment. Our seats were perfect, the crowd was hyped, and the buzz was contagious. Not only did the duo sing songs, off their recent collaboration album Watch The Throne, they each sang some of their solo material, with Jay Z digging deep into his archive. And to go out in true diva style, they sang Paris SIX TIMES! I was in my element!

But that wasn't the best bit! Out of the 5 nights that they are performing at the O2, I was lucky enough to be there the night Rihanna made a surprise appearance! She sang two songs with her mentors, and I was so excited I almost peed my pants! Ok not really, but all that screaming and shouting has left me with a very sore throat that feels rather like sandpaper...ouch.

I wanted to wear something comfy but dressy, and I ended up wearing a dipped hem skirt with a loose fitting knitted tee. I don't really like to wear all black everything (see what I did there ;-)) so I mixed it up a bit with my belt and shoes. Not forgetting my new sparkly clutch bag! It reminds me of the Zara one from last year, that I always wanted but never bought, only it was about half the price. It's the perfect shape and size for all my bits and bobs, and hellooo, it's sparkly!
