Wednesday evening, my husband and I got to be a part of rock and roll history when we saw Motely Crue perform an amazing show in their final tour as a band.
Any of you around in the 80’s know Motely Crue was one of the iconic hair bands of glam rock. My hubby and I were both in that scene back in the day, him as a performer and me as a fan.
The songs of those years transport me to a time when I drove a little Fiero, wore a Wilson’s leather jacket, used a ton of hairspray to keep my spiral perm looking “bitchin” and listened to Crue, Ratt, Poison, and Cinderella on cassette tapes. (I’m sure I lost a few of my younger readers here ….)
But anyway, back to the present. What would I wear to this fun rock concert? I didn’t want to look like I was wearing a costume and yet I wanted to be in the rocker spirit of things! This is what I came up with (with a lot of fun suggestions from my FB and IG buddies).
The rock and roll is in the details … moto jacket (Members Only), layered chain necklaces (old), black booties (old and comfy), studded belt (Calvin Klein) and a pop of red with a studded cross body bag (Jessica Simpson).

What a fun concert! I think you definitely pulled off the "rocker chic" look! I especially love the jacket.
Aww, thanks, Katie! We had so much fun!
You look like you had a lot of fun. Alice Cooper-YAy it's been awhile since I played his CDs. Such fun and you look lovely and rock n roll for sure. I need to find your IG and follow. Rachel xo
Yes, find me and follow me and I'll follow back for sure! @fashionshouldbefun

How fun! You looked fantastic!
You're so sweet. Thanks, Jen!
So fun! Glad you got to see them. I totally think you pulled off a great rocker look. The zipper up the back makes it.

Thanks, Amy Ann! I loved that zipper detail on that Crew top!
Wow super duper cute look fit for a rock concert!!!!
Thanks, Rebecca! I haven't been to a real rock n roll type concert in awhile and wasn't sure how to pull off the look.
Good lord…I don't even know where to start!! First off, you look smokin' hot my friend..perfect concert look! A Fiero, Wilson's Leather, hair bands on cassette, you're my soul mate! Ha! My hubby and I usually go see Def Leppard every summer and I love it…so much fun and the songs take you back don't they?
Haha … we would've had fun together back in the day! Heck, we would still have a blast together! Awww, love Def Leopard! I've never seen them live, so I need to put that on my to-do list!
You definitely pulled off the rocker look! Love it:)
Thanks so much, Audrey!OXOX

Alice Cooper was so fun! We were close to the stage and he pointed to me and sang "I love you cuz you're poison" …. I'll never forget it!
