Here we go, on the downside, sliding right into Christmas Day on Saturday! Today, I want to start Christmas week by sharing with you how I wore Chico’s to JAZZ TX.
First, allow me to explain that JAZZ TX is a place in San Antonio…not a town.
More about that later….
HOW I WORE CHICO’S
We were attending a Christmastime Jazz performance, but I thought this kimono with a touch of velvet would be lovely for the occasion.
This is the Travelers Velvet Peacock Kimono…and the colors are luscious and perfect for me.
A statement garment like this has the same benefit of a scarf…allowing a mix of lovely colors to be the focus of an outfit.
I like to have options of my colors with a black trim in order to continue to wear my black leggings….it would also look great with my skinny jeans and jeggings.
I picked up the orange with a long tunic silk tank by Eileen Fisher, and topped it with a gold necklace. If the weather had been cooler, I easily could have worn this with a long-sleeved top underneath.
I really felt perfect for the occasion!
Chico’s still has some lovely kimonos/ruanas/toppers for your special events coming up in the new year:
By the way, did you see this announcement that Chico’s has teamed up with Walmart for same day delivery...wow! The business world is certainly changing….
HOW I WORE CHICO’S TO JAZZ TX
We arrived to find a mid-week, Wednesday surprise…and it was hopping!
There was a Christmas market opened throughout the area that we did not know was there.
You are looking at the famous Hotel Emma on the other side of the market.
The Pearl is known for its excellent Farmer’s Market on Saturdays, but apparently the vendors are allowed to have their booths on Wednesdays during the holidays.
Sadly, we just found out about it and this coming Wednesday will be the last one in mid-week. But, all of the fun and food trucks are there on Saturdays.
There is an area of eateries in The Pearl called “The Bottling Department”.
JAZZ TX is in the basement underneath The Bottling Department…quaint, cozy, classy…the perfect size eatery and live music venue.
It is an intimate setting for the live music where the audience is practically on stage…and that is what I love the most….you feel as though this show is just for you.
The food was delicious…which we enjoyed before the fun began.
Then, the audience clapped, sang and thoroughly enjoyed a performance by Johnny P and the Wise Men which included Christmas classics, 80s hits, Bobby Darin and a touch of Glenn Miller on the side.
Note: They are really named Johnny P and the Wise Guys, but for Christmas…they go with Wise Men.
My favorite number was the piano medley of songs from a Charlie Brown Christmas…I guess the little tree should have given it away before hand!
The pianist for the night was so good…my only wish is that we had been sitting behind him where I could watch his hands fly across the keyboard.
Such a wonderful evening and we have already purchased our tickets to return to celebrate Mr. B’s birthday and hear an orchestra that is said to be incredible.
Fashion Note: The lady at the table next to us had the prettiest hook for her handbag.
I usually carry a clutch to places like this one, but these hooks are a great idea to keep your purse off the floor.
There are several to look at on Amazon. Search handbag hooks.
I have a week full of holiday celebration for you including more of what I wore to events, recipes, and a special mid-week Would You Wear It with Jennifer…I hope you can join in for all of it…and that these posts help you to….
KEEP SMILING AND JINGLE ALL THE WAY!!
