What to Wear to a Janet Jackson Concert: Belle Noelle Hair Jewelry

The Scene
Reason 1,999,999 to love Mr. Diabolina: he surprises me with Janet Jackson tickets.

Reason 2,000,000 to love him: a couple of days before the concert, he manages to snag GREAT seats...that just happen to be right behind two of our closest friends...who bought their tickets months in advance...and are more than a little creeped out. I mean what are the odds????

Me thinks they were convinced I was stalking their friend who they actually DID buy tickets with: one Rupal. Yep, we not only randomly sat behind one of our favorite couples...we sat behind Mr. Ru himself. AT JANET JACKSON. I can die happy.

Everything about Ms. Jackson on stage was amaze: how she looked and sounded and moved. Closest thing to seeing Michael we have left. Tear.

Fun, random, nostalgic night in LA.

The best part:  Katherine and Jermaine showed up before Janet took the stage and the crowd went bananas.  So I jokingly squealed, "If Blanket shows up, I'm going to lose my SHIT." 

Little did my loose bowels know that a) Blanket was in the house---he left in tears after Janet's touching tribute to Michael and 2) Rupaul overhead me and tweeted my funny the next morning!!!!!


Um, do you die? I did. Another life bucket list item...accomplished.

The Outfit
H&M tunic and jacket
American Apparel leggings
Tory Burch flats
Lee Angel bangles
Marc by Marc Jacobs zipper earrings
Vintage bag

The Commentary

I've said this many times: dressing for concerts and sporting events isn't my forte. Something about the crowds and alternating between standing and sitting and walking to and from a parking lot...ugh...it all  throws me the fuck off.

At concerts, I also psych myself out and create too much pressure. Like somehow I'm going to get pulled on stage and have a Courtney Cox moment. Like I have to fit in exactly with the staging and what the artist is wearing. I'm insane.

Suffice to say, I'm not so crazy about this end result. Safe and boring. However, I do love the mixed prints.

First time wearing the jacket. Saved it for the perfect occasion. Bought it because it reminded me of McQueen Spring 2009.  Heart.





Black and white was the palette of the night on stage too.

Added some 80s-rrific bangles that I nabbed for FREE thanks to Neiman Marcus' SCVNGR promotion.

Best part of the outfit: my hair clip/jewelry that I bought at Revolve. Love it in all it's over the top, gaudy, ferosh splendor.

It is one hundred percent signature Kim.

Felt very vegas show girl crossed with a genie in a bottle crossed with a stripper in cake.

With just the right hint of Janet circa Rhythm Nation


Worst part of the outfit: the flats.

Don't get me wrong. I looove these shoes. But I've officially become the kind of thirtysomething that can't survive concerts in heels. I've crossed over into comfort over fabulosity aka the nearing death zone.

A moment of silence for the fashionista formerly known as Diabolina ;)
