Bad bitch weekend: Marie Antoinette, tattoos and Annie Lennox

A quick recap of some important notes from the weekend, full of bad bitch-ness.

  • Hubs and I had tickets for the Steppenwolf Theatre’s newest show, “Marie Antoinette.” It’s the story we were all taught in high school, but pretty sympathetic towards Marie, who was basically a child bride. Plus it has modern dialogue and amazing costumes (think Beyonce in the Mrs. Carter Show World Tour).

THE CLOTHES, PEOPLE. She started off the show with a tiny crown nestled in a three-foot-tall wig and a bedazzled top that said “BOSS.” Between scenes there was dance music and strobe lights. Stylistically one of the coolest things I’ve seen. The second act dragged a bit, but hubs and I give it two thumbs up. Go see it, Chicago!

  • After years of toying with the idea, I finally got inked. I joined the Chicago flag tattoo club. I brought some moral support who ended up getting an impulse tattoo. (Bad bitch props to her.) Hat tip to the guys at Studio One in Pilsen who gave us a great experience. They were chill and funny and patient. Plus the shop is uber clean, intimate and has cool vintage decor. I’ll definitely recommend them to others and get more work done there.

 

  • Annie Lennox at the Grammy’s. Flawless. She starts in around the 2:05 mark. Get it, girl.

Also doing work at the Grammy’s: Lady Gaga looked and sounded amazing. And I give props to Madonna for doing her thing.
