To the Opera

Last Weekend, my dad and I went to the Opera. I always love going to the opera: walking up the opera house (and throwing a coin into the fountain,) the beautiful chandeliers going up before the performance, and the ah-mazing lemon tarts I always get at intermission, but I must say, the singing can sometimes drive me insane! Anywho, with that aside, I take the opera as a chance to get dressed up in cute little dress and fabulous high-heels...There aren't many fancy occasions in my life where I can get dressed up, so when an Opera comes around, I'll take it!.

While the performers on stage wear the most detailed and dramatic outfits, it is always funny/interesting to see what the audience has on. Some in stunning gowns with diamonds and stilettos, some in slacks and a white shirt, and others in jeans and a tee-shirt. The opera, by far, is the place to go if you want to see the widest range of attires.

So here is what I came to the Opera in, no not a ball gown but my Aunts vintage (if you will) green velvet dress, that she wore at her first boy-girl dance and made herself. It was longer before but I hemmed it, which I regret now because recently I have found a great interest in longer dresses and skirts, not to say that my wardrobe is full of them though.

And an extra long blue pearl knecklace

Have a great weekend
