just a girl.

The real reason we were in Las Vegas: Gwen Stefani‘s Just A Girl residency at Planet Hollywood! We bought our tickets nearly a year ago!

The entrance was almost like a Gwen history museum. Old costumes from past music videos and events were on display.

We were in the VIP section (I had forgotten we purchased VIP tickets so I was super impressed by past me!) which means we were shown to our seats, and there was drink service.

Per usual, Gwen was amazing and looked the same as last time (as the rest of us age), and her dancers were incredible. I want to learn all the choreography.

The set was colorful, and there was confetti and lots of amazing costumes. My favorite was the one with a big blue furry pom on one of the dancer’s heads. She reminded me a Sky Dancer. There were a few nods to Vegas show girls, too – lots of feathers!

The show was an hour and half (sadly, no encore). Gwen always brings the dance party and makes the show personal and interactive. This time the people she brought on stage were either celebrating birthdays or looked like Tony Kanal circa 1996. My friend Lenn is dreaming up the perfect sign for whenever it is we brave the pit / snag front row tickets and Gwen can actually read the sign from the stage.

We always say we want to wear something fun for her concerts, too, but can never get our act together. So now I’m on the lookout for a sequined jacket for the next one! We did, however, manage to get some bright red lipstick on to channel our inner Gwen (and we might have gone to the make up store right before the concert and tried on the test lipstick because neither of us actually own red lipstick…).
