I Was Dreaming When I Wrote This

"Forgive me if it goes astray."  Tonight we're going to see Prince in concert.

"She wore a raspberry beret..."  I could be wrong, but isn't that The Glamourai?  

I look like a total dud in berets, so I won't be wearing one.  But there is a real good chance I'll be wearing my long, black chiffon skirt and my bright red (sexy lips, really that's the name) Laura Mercier lipstick.


So tonight I'm gonna party like it's... you know the rest.

When I think of prince--I immediately first think about Julia Roberts in Pretty Women. Haha--Love that scene where she sings his song.

Prince is awesome! Have fun.

Love that maxi skirt - is it American Apparel? They have a couple I'm dying to get :)

I also cannot pull off berets :( I believe that is The Glamourai though :)

My first concert was Prince's Purple Rain tour back in the mid 80's. I think I'm aging myself here, but I remember it was a blast! Hope you had a great time!
