Blue Steel


This past weekend we were out of town for a traveling baseball tournament, minivan packed to the roof with gear. Also staying at the Holiday Inn Express in Onalaska, WI was the band known as Starship and .38 Special. There may or may not have been some pictures taken of the entire team with the lead singers (whom they had no idea about) and some 40-somethings reminiscing about their younger days as groupies. Seems everyone has a concert story or two. I have backstage passes signed by rock legends and a few pictures of my own exploits (Tommy Shaw of Styx has the softest cheeks ever. I know. I kissed them. ;-) and more than my share of guitar picks and even a drumstick given to me in a flirtatious backstage moment. A far cry from the minivan driving-baseball toting mom that I am today.

Blue Steel


But back in the day I would have had no problem rocking these earrings Blue Steel with this chic ensemble at Summerfest on the lakefront in Milwaukee. Now I can just dream of wearing this (but those shoes are still calling my name!). Wearing these make me feel like I'm 19 again even if the calendar disagrees.

And I still have a thing for drummers. ;-)

  7. Those are fantastic!!! Love all the metal! Those silver peanut beads make those the best earwires ever! Love those curved pieces, they look like galvanized steel, love how they're echoed by the shape of the earwires. Great mix of different metal finishes. Those charms are fab! Love how the top is dipped in a different glaze. (Get the shoes.)

  15. Gorgeous earrings Erin and the shoes.....oh how I wish I could wear shoes like that. My poor old feet are so used to "sensible" shoes now I know I'd having trouble staying upright in them.

  20. These earrings totally ROCK! Love 'em! And drummers,...oh yes! Wow, .38 Special,...now I've got the tune "hold on loosely' running through my brain - thanks Erin!! I'd wear those shoes, too - probably couldn't actually get up and walk in them, but my feet would look awesome while I sat backstage!! LOL!! Great post!
