Different Dress is the story of three women on a cross-country pop/country road tour. Jaime Esperanza works production and sound on the music tour. The headliner, Lacey Leigh Jaxon, is a fast-living prima donna with intimacy problems. She had a brief relationship with Jaime, then dumped her for the new guy (who lasted all of about two weeks). Lacey still comes back to Jaime in between conquests, and Jaime hasn’t yet gotten her entirely out of her heart.
After Lacey Leigh steamrolls yet another opening act, a folksinger from Minnesota named Kip Galvin, who wrote one of Lacey’s biggest songs, is brought on board for the summer tour. Kip has true talent, she loves people and they respond, and she has a pleasant stage presence. A friendship springs up between Jaime and Kip—but what about Lacey Leigh?
It’s a honky-tonk, bluesy, pop, country EXPLOSION of emotion as these three women duke it out. Who will win Jaime’s heart and soul?
