An Evening at The Ballet
Dress: $1 Goodwill
Bolero: $1 Goodwill, refashioned
Earrings: I don’t know
I saw The Nutcracker for the first time and enjoyed it, except for the interminable scenes featuring children. My friend said that the productions she has seen before didn’t have quite as much time focused on kids, although they’re always a part of it. I felt like I had accidentally purchased tickets for a K-6 recital, albeit one with a professional symphony. When the actual members of Ballet Arizona were on stage it was delightful, beautiful, and inspiring.
I bought the black shirt at Goodwill on my way home from work. I was picturing a shrug or bolero of sorts, something to provide arm coverage and a bit of warmth over the long slip dress, and it worked out perfectly with scissors, no sewing required.
