Baby Spice Meets Kate Nash

Outfit Details- Dress: Thrift store, Belt: Forever 21, Shoes: Daddyo's
Ok, so this (again) is from a while ago (I think May), but I wore it the week after I went to a Kate Nash concert. I know I'm more than two months late on my recap of it, but it was so amazing. She's essentially my favorite person ever because she's super bad ass and she's a feminist, and she makes amazing music, and she just seems like the raddest person ever. So, that was pretty much my favorite day ever.
She wore kind of maroon lipstick, thick Egyptian-esque eyeliner, and messy pigtails, and I'm pretty sure that every girl there went home and wore the same thing the next day, as did I. I got this dress down in L.A. before the concert, and couldn't wait to wear it. It kind of reminded me of Baby Spice, especially with the pigtails, but the outfit was also inspired by Kate Nash, hence the title.
The concert was also amazing because everyone there just seemed really cool. It felt like we were all in a girl gang for the night, and that was so cool. The crowd was pretty diverse, but a lot of it was made up by teenaged girls dressed similarly to me: most of us were in retro-style skirts and dresses with fishnets or other tights, either combat-boots or creepers, and thick black (often glittery) eyeliner and red lipstick.
I wore the green dress from "The Riot Grrrl Jacket" post, with black fishnets and my docs, and black cat-ears.
Here are some of the pictures that my mom and I took of the concert:
 After the show she was signing autographs at the merchandise booth
 She signed my vinyl of Girl Talk which was super amazing!
It was so awesome because after she signed my vinyl, I got to hug her and my mom took a picture of us for me, and it pretty much made my life because she said that she loved my dress and asked where I got it and now it's my favorite dress because it's "Kate Nash Approved". Also, I got to use a double meaning in my title.
I hope you have a fantastic day!
