Under the Big Top Circus on Sunday...

Greetings Fam!

So Although I did get dressed for Church I
failed to get any pictures it was such a busy Sunday. Although I got to
take pictures of my casual thrifted fit. My niece baby girl and I had
the chance to attend a circus called Universal Soul Circus and we had
such a lovely time. My niece baby girl had her 15th birthday the other
day and the only thing she wanted was to go to the Universal Soul


So I hope your next question is. What is the Universal Soul Circus?
Well I'm glad you asked. USC is the 2nd largest traveling Circus in
America. USC searches the globe for some of the greatest acts in the
world and then tours America Like Ringling Brothers. Unlike Ringling
Brothers Circus. Universal Soul Circus has on 1 large Ring where all
the acts perform separately providing and intimate and interactive
experience for the audience and the artist.

So I like history
so here is a bit about UniverSoul Circus. The UniverSoul Circus was
founded in 1994. The history section of the official website states that
"We had the idea to present ... to a wide demographic of spectators."
Recruiting, training and production began in 1993. The first performance
took place in 1994 in the parking lot of Atlanta Fulton County Stadium.

We have been enjoying the Circus for about 15 years it is a family and School Trip regular for the Chicagoland area.

So on to what I wore. Well I know black it hard to photograph but,
this is a black denim moto jacket with an asymmetrical zip I love it.
It has zippers on the sleeves and also on the pockets. The top is a
long shark bite hem tank I have 3 in different colors because they are
long enough to cover any bits and I like the uniqueness of the shark
bite hem. The Hat is a newsboy cap the details are hard to see also but
It was has paint splatters on it from a paint your jeans event I went
to this past summer. My Jeans are pregnancy jeans. Yes, they are so
comfortable they are by Liz Lang maternity. My American flag scarf has a
vintage wash feel I bought 2 speaking of multiples. My shoes are clogs
are Dansko which are the most comfortable things in the world. My fit
my niece wore was thrifted as well she will be so statuesque already
standing at 5'7 against my 5'2.

    Ledonna, even if I weren't a major fan of black wardrobe items, I would say you made the right choice to contrast against all the circus razzle dazzle.  Well done!  

    If I'm not mistaken, the UniverSoul Circus performs in West Philadelphia, where I lived for a number of years.  I seem to remember seeing their signs around town.  What a great family tradition!

    You look great Ledonna. Funky but appropriately dressed for a late night circus. Great pictures. And I love how you've got it all op shopping. Your niece looks gorgeous too.

  • Karie replied 3 years ago

    You look fantastic as always! Yes, that circus also performs at Fairmount Park in Philly. I've never been, but I've heard they are fantastic.

    Looks like you had fun, and you look adorable in your creative jeans outfit! Your niece is a beauty, too.
    I have got to admit my jaw about dropped when I read that you are 5'2"! Ledonna, all this time I've assumed you were at least 5'8". You make a big impact with the photos of your style--always full of movement, personality, wit, and life.

    That looks like so much fun, Ledonna! I love the photo of the pair of you—your niece is lovely, and your megawatt smile puts a smile on my face.

    I missed your big reveal last month but - that's fantastic news! Congratulations to you and Tem. Aliona's right - you're glowing.
