Janet ~ Number Ones...Up Close and Personal

Hey Dolls!!!!

So as you may know by now, on Sunday I attended the BEST concert of my life:  

Janet – Number Ones…Up Close and Personal

Now, I am not easily excited or easy to please at all but, I MUST say Janet Jackson gave me everything I needed at her concert.  I have been a Fan FOREVER and to see her live and to sit as close as I was – PRICELESS!!!  I stood up practically the entire show, even during her ballads.  I only sat during stage transitions, even then I was to excited to sit still, LOL!!!  My ONLY regret is that I never got an opportunity to attend a Janet Jackson concert before now! 

She opened up with Pleasure Principle, one of my all-time favorites!  I was in heaven.  Then when she sang Love Will Never Do – I thought I was gonna die.  Those are my two FAVORITE Janet songs of all and it's hard to choose because her catalog is bananas.  Hard to believe that she is 45 years old and hitting her dance moves with no problem!  She worked it all night in Black Denim Levi Jeans, a Black T-shirt, combat boots and some Razzle Dazzle in her accessories – DIVA STYLE!

My emotional moments came when she started performing Rhythm Nation up to the song dedications she performed in Memory of Michael.  She was just all around great!  Love me some Janet!!! I remember getting the Rhythm Nation cassette tape...yes, cassette tape when I was 8 years old as a Christmas Gift and it became the soundtrack for my life at that moment.  Til' this day, the CD is always in my car!

 What I’m Wearing:
Vest:  Thrifted
Pants:  Ann Taylor
Shoes:  Mix via MJM (similar on Urban og)
Earrings & Bracelets:  Forever 21
Ring:  Betsey Johnson
Clutch:  ALDO

I was so glad the concert gave me the opportunity to wear the BEST thrifted item I own by far!  Ok, so when I went home for Thanksgiving, my Fabulous Mama gave me this gorgeous Neiman Marcus Black Tie Cassini Beaded and Sequined Vest she found for $4!!!!  This vest is so beautiful!  I LOVE it to death.  Be prepared to see a lot of it. 

If you ever have any opportunity to see Janet Jackson doing anything, anywhere PLEASE TAKE ADVANTAGE!!!!  She is a living ICON that has been and will continue to be relevant for decades.  Enjoy the photos from my Concert Experience below:
