"stolen roses"...

today i am grateful for...

karen elson

karen elson 2

last fangirl post, i swear!!! miss jamie jean freed, the coolest boss lady ever, wrangled up some passes to see this lovely flame-haired ingenue tonight. between lavender, gin-spiked lemonade and grace coddington sightings, it was an all-round perfect evening. karen wore a peachy, frothy floor-length dress trimmed with black lace. and this amazing feather headpiece that sort of resembled a "where the wild things are crown". her voice is so pure, and twangy and old-school. so good it'll bring tears to your eyes!

and one of my favorite citizens band mates, rachelle garniez sang back up and played the accordion. i see a nashville road trip in my near future. i'll drop ed off at billy reid to do the manly flannel thang, while i scour venus and mars for delicious, vintage party dresses. and maybe we'll meet up at the grand ole opry.

yeah. anyway. karen elson rocks my world.

When I was buying her EP on vinyl from her husband's record shop in Nashville, she was there in the recording studio. I felt incredibly nervous, but I too love what I have heard from her. Such a pretty voice!

I'M SO JEALOUS. What I wouldn't give to see her play live. I hope she comes to Seattle!
