You all may have noticed whenever Jackie wears something long-sleeved, she likes the sleeves long enough to cover her hands right down to the fingers. In a very brief look at "teen fashion" on the net, this doesn't seem to be a general trend- in fact, usually when long sleeves are shown, they are pushed or rolled up to 3/4 length. So maybe this is Jackie's own original style, or maybe it's a local fashion?
On her current concert tour, for the second half of the show, Jackie wears a white sequined dress that goes down to mid thigh. Some people think this is a big deal. I don't because Jackie was wearing shorter dresses five years ago. Besides, Jackie has nice legs. Why shouldn't she show them? The scar from her tent stake accident five years ago doesn't even show. She looked good.
Well, to me, for her to wear a short dress in an actual concert is a pretty earth-shattering development, though I knew it had to be coming, from her comment in the facebook Q&A. I admire so much, her long gowns that I sure would hate to see them abandoned entirely. The sparkly sequins made the dress definitely Concert Gear rather than street clothes, so it was quite appropriate. Maybe if she only wears one long dress per concert it will make them extra special.
I certainly don't have any problem with Jackie showing her legs, but... you may have noticed, there is no shortage of good-looking women in show business; I don't think they're her main asset. What makes Jackie fascinating to watch, as well as hear of course, what puts her above all the others for me, is not mundane sexiness or hotness, but beauty and grace- which the long gowns accentuate and enhance. (also enhanced by her contrasting unaffectedness between songs as she talks with her audience)
As for high heels- extremely high heels seem to be fashionable now, at least in show business- I don't see many teenagers wearing them, though. I think women look kind of funny trying to walk in them- like some kind of hoofed animal. And of course they are known to be unhealthy. I hope if she's uncomfortable in them, she wears something else, or no shoes at all is fine with me . If Jackie wants to be trendy, she'd probably be better off looking to what her fellow teenagers wear, rather than what she sees on the MTV awards.
I won't name names, but I mentioned during dinner before a concert last year how much I liked this dress. My companion made a face. I just really like deep reds. One reason I'm so fond of the painting "Destiny" by John William Waterhouse. Also, Jackie's deep red Palazzo Vecchio dress which she wore second half for many concerts of the Awakening tour.
We may be seeing the very beginning of Jackie going to the 'Dark Side'. Our little Jedi has always wore light colors on her albums. (Except the red one on HC.) For 2H she has chosen an off the shoulder 'dark' grey gown, with an above the knees LBD for the back cover. I'm actually excited with the after the release of 2H concert appearances. Will we see a new JME. MTFBWY
rickolsen: My cole slaw is gone. I've got half the Greek pasta salad and potato salad left. I'm not supposed to eat pasta or potatoes, but my doctor said I can eat them in moderation. When you are diabetic you can't eat anything good or cheap. I eat what I want.

rickolsen: My cats are all sleeping. Phoenix and Sampson are in on my bed. Brandie is on the loveseat here in the livingroom with me. I'm watching football and munching corn chips. If you like corn chips get Great Value corn chips at Walmart. They are really good.

rickolsen: It is 10:00 am. My cats are all sleeping. Phoenix and Sampson are in on my bed. Brandie is on the love seat. I didn't give them gravy dinner because they didn't ask for it. When they do I will give it to them. I'm watching football.

rickolsen: I just gave my cats some gravy dinner. Prime filet chicken. They like that kind. They are gobbling it down. They will be sleeping soon. I'm watching football.

rickolsen: My brother died yesterday. We weren't close. Now I'm the only son of 4 left. All 3 of my cats are on my desk. They came to see me.

Willyiam: May your Brother RIP!!

rickolsen: Thanks. I haven't seen, or spoken to my brother since my biological mother's funeral in 2009. I was adopted and didn't meet my biological family until 20 years ago when I was 44. We were never close. I see my biological father once in awhile.

rickolsen: One of my sisters found me. I didn't go looking for them. My cats are all sleeping. I'm watching football, and I'm hungry, so I'm making a big pot of stew. Of course it has mushrooms and lots of garlic.
Feb 18, 2020 18:37:03 GMT -5
rickolsen: My stew is so good I wish I could share it with you. I'm glad Agog suggested I cook my own food. I'm a good cook, it's cheaper, tastes better, and it's better for you. I love to cook so it works out perfectly.
Feb 18, 2020 18:55:35 GMT -5
rickolsen: I would cook for my cats, but they need cat food from the store. It has all the minerals and nutrients they need including taurin for good health. You should resist the temptation to feed your cat or dog people food. Give them the pet food they need.

rickolsen: All 3 of my cats are in the livingroom with me. Brandie is on the loveseat. Phoenix is on the arm of the arm chair and Sampson is on the couch. Today is trash day. I have to run a few errands and then I'm going to put out my trash.

nipper: So Jackie's part in Disney dream weddings will air this coming Friday I believe on Disney + channel. Does anyone have that channel? I believe it is an streaming channel!
Feb 23, 2020 8:45:31 GMT -5
nipper: Does anyone have a hunch on what the exciting collaboration Jackie talked about last month that will happen this year?
Feb 23, 2020 8:46:56 GMT -5
johnnyb: Sorry Nipper, Jackie fans have left the building, head over to Jackie Amazon if you want to have a conversation or find some news on Jackie's career. Unfortunately Rick has lost interest in Jackie and now only wants to talk about his cats. 😺
Feb 23, 2020 14:27:13 GMT -5
nipper: I see that. As an Ice breaker should I talk about my cat who died in October?
Feb 23, 2020 20:54:02 GMT -5
jamesn: Sounds like a good idea - at least it would be different!
Feb 25, 2020 17:18:48 GMT -5
jamesn: Or maybe I should talk about the really nifty 100-year-old WW I trench knife I just received in the mail!
Feb 25, 2020 17:20:21 GMT -5
jamesn: Seriously, I'm hoping Bastet posts a review/account of Jackie's upcoming Colorado concert. I haven't been to one since last February in Lufkin, TX.
