A Wonderful Weekend

7:49 PM

On Saturday night I went out into the city with the marvelous Andi B Goode and our lovely friend Abi.

We went to see World War Wonderful, a cabaret on as part of the Adelaide Fringe festival.

The show was superb. We, the audience, were treated to a USO style show presented by the 'Wonderful Sisters', a trio of songstresses not unlike another boogie-woogie wartime group of girls you may have heard of :) The voices were incredible; and the original songs were funny, sometimes a little naughty and in the end intensely thought provoking and moving.

I didn't take any photos in the show (wasn't sure whether I was allowed to or not :S), but I have found this video of the girls promoting their show earlier this year in Federation Square; gives you a glimpse into exactly what we saw.

We went out for food/ dessert for a little while after too, and took the rudimentary outfit posts. Aren't these girls lovely?

This is a view of the Rundle Lantern from the east end of Rundle Street. It's effectively a facade to cover up the ugliness of a carpark, but I think it's lovely! Adds so much extra colour to the city.

And this is how I did my hair and make-up for the night! Rolls and a hair rat at the back.

  5. You all look lovely; I love your dress - it's a Trashy Diva Sadie isn't it?

  6. Rebeccak- haha thankyou!!! Thats lovely of you to say so! I actually dont have the best natural eyebrow in the world, it's very blond and the hair is a bit sparse, so i help them along a bit with an eyebrow pencil. I learnt at the Lindy Charm school for Girls that even if you have a thick/dark/nicely shaped brow naturally, you can benefit from a bit of pencil to create a smoother shape, especially where it tapers on the outer half. The aim is to get them so the whole brow can be seen from a distance. Wow, I've rambled! I hope that helps :)

    Andi- I love it too! Thanks for a great night out, I have more lovely pictures if you're interested in seeing them :)

    Ulrika- it most certainly is! Such a beautiful dress, i can't praise it enough. It's pretty much my favourite; both comfy and stylish.
