Alright. First off, a big THANKS to everyone for your input. It means a lot :)
Second, I've now narrowed it down to the top 2 songs: "Smile" and "Fooled Ya Baby." Which one I end up singing may be a complete last-minute decision (like right after I say "Hi, my name is Ashley and I will be singing "_______________").
Third, from the advice of Erica, and from my fairly bare wardrobe that completely needs a makeover, I was able to put together a little "outfit." Now, I could be totally crazy in thinking this is cute. So this is where I need a bit more advice. Does this look completely hideous?
Before you say "yes," read on.
All of these things are currently in my closet. I do not need to pull money out of the area I like to pretend it comes from to buy more. So keep that in mind as you are criticizing.
Ok, so I figure that red is a power color, which is good. And the red and black are pretty cute together. I would probably get some really cute red/black earrings. Now as far as shoes- I can't decide. Do I want to be dressy with the Jessica Simpson shoes or should I be more casual with the punk-ish shoes?
Or should I bag the whole outfit and start from scratch?
