What I Wore-Date Night with The Voice

If you follow me on twitter you might have an idea that me and the BF’s favorite date night activity so far this summer has been staying in and watching NBC’s The Voice.

This is what I wore to our last date night with The Voice.

First we grabbed some dinner at our go-to Italian place in Queens, Pasta Lovers. This place doesn’t look like much but the food is delicious.

I’m sorry, but I think my BF has one of the best arms around :D.

Do NOT leave me with crayons…I will doodle, I can’t help it.

So if you were thinking The Voice is a redundant show…there is an American Idol and an America’s Got Talent already blah, blah, blah…YOU ARE SO WRONG! I am a huuuge fan of real meritocracy shows. I love television that showcases real talent and promotes authentic artists (ahem, So You Think You Can Dance?), The Voice is a stellar show to add to this list and it has a super fresh take on these kinds of competitions.

These friends, were the 4 finalists in Season 1 of The Voice.

L-R: Dia Frampton, Beverly McClellan, Vicci Martinez, & Javier Colon

How cute are they?!?! Seriously, they produced some of the most inspiring, knee slapping, goose bumps inducing performances on TV for me ever.

But they are not the only components to the show. There are also 4 coaches who are competing to be the discoverer of The Voice. The coaches are competitive, engaging, and crazy passionate about their contestants and this competition.

L-R: Adam Levine of Maroon 5, Cristina Aguilera, Cee Lo Brown, & Blake Shelton

And so am I!!! I don’t know how this will effect my cool factor but I would cry and occasionally yell “GET IT!” while watching the performances of The Voice. And the BF and I would high-five on result nights and not mock high-five, REAL high-five with a YEAH! at the end of it.

So the BF was/is obsessed with the second place winner of this season’s The Voice, the gorgeous and talented Miss Dia Frampton. He was a fan of Dia’s band before the show and her amazing renditions of Kanye Wests’ “Heartless” and R.E.M’s “Losing My Religion”, really took the obsession to another level (you can watch both videos here).

I’ve been subtly tweeting Dia Frampton (@diaframps) in the hopes that she will tweet my dear BF (@mikesteamboat) because it would make his life at this point. Seriously, he voted for Dia 101 times in the final voting day ALONE!

There’s my honey voting for Dia…see how he’s counting?! Bahahaha, cutie.

Sorry Dia did not win honey, but she didn’t look even a bit disappointed! There is totally no bad blood in this competition and Mr. Javier Colon is really a wonderful talent and I was really thrilled he took it home.

Oh! I digressed so much from my outfit but I really wanted to share my love of The Voice and my BF’s love of Dia Frampton and give him a big virtual hug because he was so sad when she didn’t win. I’m really interested to see if next season will be as compelling as The Voice’s first season, I honestly can not imagine how it can maintain this level of excellence. EXCITING!

Does everyone see my new rings!!?! Big hugs and thank you’s to Marissa, Kateri and Ashley who tolerated my forever long debate between gold and silver (shame face). You ladies are the greatest kinds of friends :). And another thank you to Best of Brooklyn for tweeting the sample sale for Made by Her Think. I’ve had a crush on their rings for ages.

P.S.-My BF got us tickets to The Voice on tour!!!!

    haha your beau is serious! Love the look, so fresh for summer :) Love your bf’s tats!

    I’ve heard of The Voice and really liked the concept of the show. The fact that the judges have to look away while the contestants are performing seems really exciting!

    Your outfit is so cute and flowy! Pretty rings too :)

    This post is so cute!! You told me that you and the bf love The Voice, but I didn’t realize it was that intense, lol. I really enjoyed The Voice (as well as Sunday Best on BET in terms of singing competitions), and I’m looking forward to another season!

    Your dress is so cute, and I LOVE your rings!!

    OMG! We loved the Voive as well, it’s amazing & kicks Idol’s & America’s got Talent’s butt… well it’s such a different show! I love that it’s unpretentious & solely based on their talent instead of if they look like the “total package.”. You look so pretty & your outfit is lovely Jamilliah. -xxoo

    ahhh you’re so stinkin cute! and your BF does have a baller sleeve going on there =) I’d die for one for myself even… though my hubs and fam might have a heart attack so i’ll stick to tatting up my ribs and begging P to get a tat or 8! hehe! <3

    you look so cute! Love that dress and all your rings are killer! Whatever was in your pasta bowl looked amazing! I loved seeing a bit of the boy! It’s always so interesting to meet or see your friend’s partners because I don’t think its ever quite what you expect! Happy Monday my friend!

    My parents and sister are completely obsessed with The Voice! I’ll admit I didn’t really watch it – just enough to know the final four, really, but not enough to feel drawn toward a favorite. I try to avoid competition shows at all cost because I get too into them and that sort of takes away the fun, you know? But I loved how amiable they all were and what a family they had become by the end. So cool that you’ll be seeing them on tour! And I love Cee Lo, he’s hilarious. My favorite part was when the camera would cut to him during performances and he’d be dancing in his chair like a little Oompa Loompa.

    P.S. Love the outfit – and the rings! J’adore.

    I love how seriously your boy takes the voting. That’s hilarious because Mr. A does the same thing when he is obsessed with someone on one of these shows. It makes me laugh so hard because he acts like a 10-year old girl. That’s why we love them, right? :)

    It is so easy to get sucked in and emotional with these shows. This sort of thing is great winter viewing for my hubby. We dont have the Voice here – but those judges/mentors are pretty amazing. Xxxx

    Such a floaty, ethereal dress. Looks wonderful with your dark hair. And the rings! Who doesn’t love more and more and more of them!

    I never gave the show a chance. I heard that it was a success. Maybe next time.
    Maybe we can follow each other? http://www.fashionmechic.com/

    This reminds me of my husband and his unhealthy obsession with Dancing with the Stars (he thinks he could go on and win it all, and would kill me if he ever knew I was divulging this information on the web). Shows like this are so inspiring. And can we dish about that dress? Just the kind of light, flowy outfit I need in the summer. Love it!

    i looooove your dress. it manages to be casual and totally elegant and graceful all at once. looking through my closet a few days ago i thought, man, i don’t own anything that isn’t embellished with something wacky or a crazy color. . . i could really use a few more of these types of dresses! beautiful. and i’m right there with you on that specific kind of show – ‘so you think you can dance’ is probably my favorite.
