HI FASHIONMINIES!

SO I HAVE TO UPDATE YOU ALL ON MY LIFE AND THE “OH SO AMAZING” EXPERIENCES I HAVE ENCOUNTERED IN THESE COUPLE OF MONTHS.
SO AS ALL OF YOU KNOW I HAD PURCHASED TICKETS LAST YEAR TICKETS FOR TAYLOR SWIFT’S RED TOUR 2013 THIS MAY. AND WHY TAYLOR SWIFT ANYWAYS?… WELL MOST OF YOU KNOW I AM NOT A BIG FAN OF TAYLOR’S THOUGH I ENJOY SOME OF HER SONGS I WOULD NEVER EVER GO TO ONE OF HER CONCERTS, OR SO I THOUGHT? I AM PRETTY SURE THAT MOST OF YOU HAVE HEARD ABOUT THE PHRASE “NEVER SAY NEVER” YEAH I SHOULD HAVE LISTENED TO THAT MYSELF.

SO LONG STORY SHORT I  FOUND OUT THAT  ONE OF MY FAVORITE  AND ALL TIME FAVORITES BRITISH SINGER AND SONGWRITER GRAMMY NOMINATED  ED SHEERAN WAS TAGGING ALONG” THE RED TOUR” AS ONE OF HER OPENING ACTS. RIGHT THEN AND THERE, THERE WAS NO QUESTION IN MY MIND THAT I HAD TO GET TICKETS NOW FOR THIS CONCERT NO MATTER WHAT IT TAKE OR HOW MUCH I HAD TO PAY. I WAS SO EXCITED I COULDN’T SLEEP THE NIGHT BEFORE THE TICKETS WERE RELEASED TO THE GENERAL PUBLIC.  SO THEN I FIND OUT THAT THE TICKETS FOR THE GENERAL PUBLIC WAS GOING TO BE RELEASED A LITTLE EARLIER BEFORE 10AM IF YOU WERE AT THE ACTUAL BOX OFFICE. SO I WAKE UP MAD EARLY THE NEXT DAY NEEDLESS TO SAY I HAD TO BEAT TRAFFIC FROM EARLY MORNING DRIVERS, AND DRIVE THROUGH ALL DOWNTOWN ORLANDO AND FIND A PARKING SPACE. WHEN I GET THERE, THERE WAS A HUGE LINE AND I WAS LIKE “IS THIS FOR REAL?” AS I MADE MY WAY IN THE LINE AND WAITED ALONG WITH THE REST OF THE FANS THERE. AFTER WHAT SEEMED AND ETERNITY WAITING IN LINE FOR ABOUT AN HOUR I GOT TO THE WINDOW AND THE FRONT ROW AND VIP PIT WERE “SUPPOSEDLY” SOLD OUT ( WHICH EVERYONE KNOWS ITS A LIE! BUT WHATEVER!) SO I ENDED UP BUYING A PAIR OF TICKETS FOR $86.00 EACH ON THE LOWER LEVEL SECTION.

SO YES I WAS THERE MORE FOR ED SHEERAN THAN FOR TAYLOR SWIFT. BUT A GIRL HAS TO DO WHAT A GIRL HAS TO DO. SO I OBVIOUSLY KNOW TAYLOR SWIFT’S “RED” ALBUM AND ALL OF HER SONGS BECAUSE THIS ALBUM I THINK PERSONALLY HAS BEEN THE BEST ONE SO FAR. I THINK ITS BECAUSE ITS MORE FUN, AND IT HAS MORE SONGS I CAN RELATE TO RATHER THAN SOME OF HER OLD ALBUMS.

THE DAY OF THE CONCERT:
SO THE DAY OF THE CONCERT COMES AROUND AND I HAD REQUESTED THIS DAY OFF WORK LIKE LAST YEAR. SO ITS THE DAY OF THE CONCERT AND I AM SO EXCITED I CAN’T BELIEVE I WILL BE SEEING ED SHEERAN LIVE IN A FEW HOURS. I DEFINITELY DECKED OUT MY OUTFIT TO SHOW MY SUPPORT. SO PREVIOUS TO THIS I HAD BOUGHT ONLINE MONTHS AGO DIFFERENT THINGS SO I COULD MAKE THIS OUTFIT HAPPENED.

WHAT I WORE TO THE CONCERT:
– AN ED SHEERAN CARTOON TOP THAT HAS ONE OF MY FAVORITE LINES FROM HIS SONG “KISS ME” WHICH READS:
“I’VE FALLEN FOR YOUR EYES BUT THEY DON’T KNOW ME YET – ED SHEERAN”
– AN ORANGE TANK TO GO UNDERNEATH
– BRIGHT BLUE SKINNY JEANS
– BRIGHT ORANGE FLATS
– ED SHEERAN’S “+” ALBUM COVER HANDMADE EARRINGS
– ED SHEERAN PERSONALIZED SILVER BRACELET WITH MY FAVORITE LINE FROM HIS SONG “WAKE ME UP” THE BRACELET READS: “MAYBE IM IN LOVE WITH YOU WHEN YOU WAKE ME UP”

MY HAIR: STRAIGHT MY MAKEUP: RED LIPS AKA RED TOUR DUH! LOL

SO I HAD SOME REALLY AMAZING SEATS CLOSE TO THE STAGE SIDE VIEW LOWER LEVEL GOT TO SEE “VIP” AREAS LIKE THE DANCER’S SWITCHOUTS, WADROBES, THE VIP RED TOUR AS THE WALKED BY WITH TAYLOR SWIFT’S MOM, THE DJ AREA, WHEN THEY CLEANED HER AND HER BAND’S GUITARS, POLISHING THEM. PLUS I HAVE MY AMAZING CAMERA THAT MY MOM GOT ME FOR CHRISTMAS WHICH WAS MEANT FOR THIS CONCERT ANYWAYS BUT THAT I HAD USED TO PHOTOGRAPH IN OTHER CONCERTS LIKE “pink” AND “demi lovato”. SO BEFORE THE CONCERT STARTED I MET SOME REALLY AMAZING FANS AND MADE SOME NEW FRIENDS. THEN WHEN THE CONCERT STARTED IT STARTED A LITTLE BEFORE THE TIME IT WAS SUPPOSED TO, SO PROPS ON THAT. THIS OTHER UP AND COMING COUNTRY SINGER OPENED UP FOR ED SHEERAN HIS NAME WAS SOMETHING BRYCE… I KNOW IM SORRY IM DIDN’T CATCH THE WHOLE THING BUT HE WAS GOOD.

THEN WITHIN A FEW MINUTES ED SHEERAN CAME OUT AND I WAS LIKE DONE FOR LIFE. HE WAS JUST FLAWLESS. I HAD A BIG BRITISH FLAG I HAD BROUGHT WITH ME INSTEAD OF A POSTER AND I TOOK IT OUT AND I WAS LIKE WAVING IT PROUDLY SO HE COULD SEE IT. THE GREAT THING ABOUT ED SHEERAN IS HE DOESN’T NEED DANCERS HE DOESN’T NEED ANYTHING HIS VOICE AND TALENT IS CAPTIVATING ENOUGH. HE CAN PLAY THE GUITAR LIKE NO OTHER YOU CAN TELL HE IS ART, HE IS MUSIC, HE IS A LYRICAL GENIUS. IF YOU HAVEN’T HEARD OR LIKE ED SHEERAN YOU SERIOUSLY ARE MISSING OUT ON SOMETHING THAT IS GREAT. WHAT I LOVE ABOUT ED IS THAT YOU CAN TELL THAT MUSIC IS HIS LIFE, PASSION, AND EVERYTHING THAT IS HIM. AS SOON AS HE STEPS ON THAT STAGE AND STARTS PLAYING HE POURS OUT HIS WHOLE HEART AND SOUL INTO EVERY SONG IT DOESN’T MATTER HOW LONG THE SONG IS. HE MAKES SURE THAT EVERYONE IN THE CROWD IS INVOLVE AND HIS ENERGY FILLS UP THE WHOLE ARENA. I SANG MY HEART OUT TO ALL OF HIS SONGS AS I TRIED TO TAKE AS MANY PHOTOS, AND VIDEOS OF HIM POSSIBLE. I WANT TO BE ABLE TO GO BACK AND SAY WOW I WAS THERE AND RELIVE IT. BECAUSE GOD KNOWS WHEN IT WILL BE THE NEXT TIME I WILL BE ABLE TO SEE HIM AGAIN IN CONCERT. AND HE MADE MY NIGHT EPIC REGARDLESS IF TAYLOR’S SHOW WOULD BE GOOD OR NOT. LATER WHEN HE ENDED HIS LAST SONG HE EXITED NEXT TO THE AREA I WAS SITTING AT AND WAVED BACK. 😀

IMG_0554

HE OPENED UP SINGING “GIVE ME LOVE”, “KISS ME”, “DRUNK”, “LEGO HOUSE”, “U DON’T NEED ME, I DON’T NEED U” MIXED WITH HIS OWN COVER OF MACKLEMORE’S “THRIFTSTORE” AND ENDED WITH “A-TEAM”. WHICH WAS AMAZING BECAUSE HE HAD EVERYONE PULL OUT THEIR CELLPHONES AND WAVE THEM AND IT LOOKED LIKE GLITTERING ANGELS IT WAS EPIC THE WHOLE ARENA JUST FLAWLESS IN LIGHTS IT MADE THE ATMOSPHERE AND THE SONG JUST MORE AMAZING TO BE IN.

THEN LATER ON WITHIN A FEW MINUTES MORE I SAW THE DANCERS LINING UP AND TAKING THEYRE PLACES IN FULL COSTUMES AND I KNEW THAT THE SHOW WAS ABOUT TO START. IT WAS COOL BECAUSE BEFORE THAT SOME OTHER FANS AND I GOT TO SAY HI TO SOME OF THE DANCERS AND WAVE AT THEM. THEY STARTED DANCING TO “AMERICAN WOMAN” ALONG WITH US HAHA. SOME OF TAYLOR SWIFT’S DANCERS WERE DANCERS WHO WERE CONTESTANTS OR FINALISTS IN PAST SEASONS OF “SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE” AND I HAD RECOGNIZED A FEW. WHICH WAS SUPRISINGLY FUN.

REDDDDD

SO TAYLOR SWIFT’S SHOW STARTS AND THE “RED” SIGN STARTS FLASHING AND RISING UP. REVEALING THEN THAT SHE IS STANDING BEHIND A RED CURTAIN THAT IS KIND OF SHEER SO YOU COULD SEE HER SILHOUETTE AND STARTS TO SING HER OPENING NUMBER TO “STATE OF GRACE & HOLY GROUND” SHE CAME OUT AND HAD BLACK HIGH WAISTED LEATHER SHORTS AND WHITE LONG LACED SLEEVE TOP BLACK BOWLER HAT, RED LACE UP OXFORD FLATS WITH RED CRYTALS ON THEM, BLACK CATEYELINER MAKEUP AND IN HER SIGNATURE RED LIPS AND STRAIGHT HAIR WITH A LITTLE WAVES AT THE END, AND RED MICROPHONE IN HAND. AFTER HER SONG ENDED SHE STOOD THERE FOR ABOUT A LEGIT 15 MINUTES WAITING FOR THE CROWD TO APPLAUD AND CHEER AND SHE LOOKED AROUND THE ARENA. SHE THEN SANG “RED” WHICH WAS REALLY COOL CAUSE THE DANCERS USED RED SILK FABRIC AND FLAGS TO WAVE AROUND. SHE THEN CHANGED OUTFITS WITH A RED UNITARD WITH A RED SEQUIN OVERLAY SKIRT AND RED SILK GLOVES DID A 50’S VERSION JAZZ SOUND OF “YOU BELONG WITH ME”.

THEN SHE CHANGED THE OVERLAY SKIRT TO A LONG SILK ONE AND DID A VINTAGE INTRO VIDEO TO “THE LUCKY ONE” THAT REMINDED ME OF BRITNEY SPEARS VIDEO “LUCKY”. DEFINITELY ONE OF MY FAVORITE CHOREOGRAPHED DANCES AND THEMED SONG OF THE NIGHT.

IMG_0578

THEN SHE CHANGED AGAIN HER SKIRT FOR A WHITE FLARE SKIRT AND SAT DOWN AND SANG “MEAN” AND “YOURE NOT SORRY” AND THEN MY FAVORITE SONG “STAY STAY STAY” WHICH LATER SHE MIXED THAT SONG AS SHE WENT UP THE STAGE STAIRS THAT LIFTED IN THE AIR TO AS SHE SANG THE LUMINEER’S “HEYHO”.

IMG_0595

SHE THEN CHANGED OUTFIT AGAIN AS THE PLAYED A SLIDESHOW OF VIDEO AND PHOTOS FROM HER AT AGE 1 ALL THE WAY TILL AGE … 22!!! WHICH INTRODUCED THE 22 SONG WHERE SHE CAME OUT IN A PREPPY OUTFIT VARSITY JACKET WITH THE LETTER “R” FOR RED, BLACK AND WHITE STRIPED LONG SLEEVE TOP, AND RED SKINNY JEANS. THIS WAS ANOTHER OF THE COOLEST SONGS SHE DID IT WAS FUN, ENERGETIC, YOUNG, AND THEN DANCERS TOOK HER FROM THE MAIN STAGE TO ANOTHER LITTLE STAGE FARTHER AWAY AS SHE HIGH FIVED THE FANS IN THE CROWD UNTIL SHE GOT THERE.

THEN OVER THERE ON THAT STAGE SHE SANG ANOTHER SONG AND THEN WITH ED SHEERAN SHE SANG THEIR DUO TO “EVERYTHING HAS CHANGED” WHICH I LITERALLY ADORE, AS THE PLATFORM CIRCLED SLOWLY SO EVERYONE COULD SEE THEM. THEN HE LEFT AND SHE SITTING DOWN SHE SANG “BEGIN AGAIN” AS THE PLATFORM RAISED IN THE AIR SO EVERYONE COULD SEE HER AND IT WAS PRETTY COOL. THEN SHE SANG ANOTHER OLD SONG OF HERS.

IMG_0608

THEN WHILE SHE CHANGED FOR HER NEXT NUMBER A VIOLING GIRL CAME OUT AND PLAYED INTRUMENTALLY THE INTRO FOR “TROUBLE” WHICH TAYLOR CAME OUT DRESSED IN A WHITE UGLY VINTAGE GOWN THAT LOOK LIKE IT WAS MADE FROM PLEATED DRAPES (:) SORRY). THE NUMBER WAS PRETTY MUCH LIKE BRITAIN AWARDS PERFORMANCE CHANDELIERS, MASQUERADE DANCERS, AND THEN THEY STRIP HER FROM THAT UGLY COSTUME AND SHE IS LEFT WITH A LACED BLACK HIGH WAISTED PANTS AND COOL TOP. AFTER THAT SHE SANG “ALMOST DO” IN HER RED PIANO WHICH SHE GOT A LITTLE CHOKED UP ON… (I PERSONALLY THINK THIS WAS THAT TAYLOR LAUTNER BASED SONG…LOL 😉 ) THEN SHE CHANGED TO A WHITE DRESSED MUCH PRETTIER AND JUMPED OUT OF A MUSICAL BOX AND ITS NUTCRACKER STYLE DANCERS AND SANG “LOVESTORY”.

THE SHE CHANGED AGAIN INTO BLACK TOP WHITE SKIRT AND SANG “TREACHEROUS” LIKE SHE WAS A GYMNAST AND SHE WAS IN A LOVE CLIFFHANGER BEING HUNTED BY EVIL CLOWNS AND RABBITS (YEAH..). THEN SHE CHANGED ONE LAST TIME INTO A RINGLEADER WITH A TOP HAT AND CANE IN HAND AND DID HER BIG FINALE SONG “WE ARE NEVER GETTING BACK TOGETHER” WHICH WAS AWESOME IT WAS A CIRCUS THEMED SHE THEN CIRCLED 360 DEGREE IN A STAGE PLATFORM AND THEN CONFETTI FLEW OUT AND AROUND THE WHOLE ARENA.. AND I PICKED UP AND SAVED SOME FOR SCRAPBOOKING SAKE, AND YEAH IT WAS FUN!!
