Lady Rizo

` ` `So I head to the Seattle Airport last night and right as I am checking in, a familiar face walks by me. “Oh my god, is that ….. Lady Rizo from the show on Saturday?” I think to myself? I do a super-mega-obvious double take and if I’m not mistaken, she does the same. Not that she would recognize me; the only time she would have seen me was while I was getting drinks with my parents before the show. Hahha, at the show I was in my wig, a white shirt, my new high-waisted jeans that I got in Korea, but at the airport I had my hair down, a blue beret, a pair of high heeled booties, and a nice jacket. (Hehehe, actually, I’ll say that’s probably the best dressed I’ve ever been at an airport. For goodness sake, I was in heels!!!)
`
` ` `So, this person who might be Lady Rizo walks off and I have to finish checking in. I then heads towards security and cross my fingers that I might pass her. Ta-da! There she was waiting in the security line. I asked her if she was Lady Rizo, she said yes, I told her I loved the show, and she thanked me. I then asked her if she wanted to jump to the front of the security line with me, she asked me how I was going to do that, I said I was a Gold Member (I’m a Gold Medallion Member….not one of Austin Power’s vixens) and she came with me. We chatted all the way through security and until she got on her plane. In fact, I was supposed to be on that plane, but last minute I had changed my flight so that I was going through Cincinnati instead of JFK (there was a storm coming).
`
` ` `Gaaah! That was so cool. It’s fun to be starstruck! It was also pretty awesome hearing another artist who has a successful story to tell. 😀

Oh yeah, and the dress she wore was a Marchesa. In the last video in this post, she’s wearing my dream dress. Freak-an-A, I can’t find a bloody photo of it though!

Ok, to the important stuff….her personality, voice, and performance! Here’s the song that changed it all for me:

She has lots of great songs that you can youtube. Here are some of my favorites:

Haha, pay attention to her backup singers. Clearly they know they’ve got their hands full. I adore her sense of humor. NOT work appropriate.

This one is a little racy and probably not work appropriate 😀

Double rainbow!!

Hahahah, a new classic. 😀 F**k You

The dress!!!

Why Lindy hop is Great: These Men

This is one of the many reasons I love lindy hop and the lindy hop scene – because of men like this who aim to please!!
