Former Portlander Esperanza Spalding did our city proud last night. She unexpectedly won the Best New Artist Grammy and looked pretty fierce in her frilly chartreuse gown. (I question the shoe color a bit, but hey Pdx-er to Pdx-er we’ll let it slide.)

Watching the Grammy’s was kind of a painful experience. I felt my age creeping up on me when I just wanted to take a comb to Justin Bieber’s hair more than anything. I don’t understand 90% of the outfits I saw and when people have the money to dress well, it dumbfounds me even more. To those that did well, thank you. To those who did not (you know who you are), I’ve got my eye on you.
