WIW to the Opera

Anna, her friend, Natasha, and I went to see Mme. Butterfly last night. It was a really lovely performance.

I had a difficult time figuring out what to wear. First of all, I knew I'd be seeing Anna, who is always dressed to the nines when I see her and I wanted to be well turned out. In addition, it was quite chilly only a few days ago, but heated up suddenly. I didn't trust the weather. I didn't know whether I'd regret having too many layers or too few.

This outfit was ok, a little on the warm side for most of the evening, plus I spilled something on my skirt and snagged my tights...and had to sit in the car FOREVER because traffic was horrible.

It was totally worth it. I had a great time...thanks Anna! Jenava, I wish you could have made it too.

    You look very pretty! I like the dress a lot, and the purple cardigan is very complimentary.

    I was there, too. It was a tricky night, temperature wise,for dressing. I went the opposite route and wore a dress with no tights or topper and ended up freezing afterwards.

    That cardigan is a wonderful color for you Amy, and I LOVE that print dress. The tights + Mary Janes were a perfect choice. You look beautiful!

    Colors are great for you and this is a really lovely dress - have we seen it before?

    Beautiful! So pretty, alluring and fun. I love you in purple and yellow.

    Wasn't it an AMAZING night last night!! The outfit that I wore out to supper is coming up this week. It was similarly layered to you - and felt right. I was not too warm at all.

    Amy what a great night out! And you look so beautiful. The colors are just gorgeous and i love the dress... is that one you made?

  • annagybe replied 8 years ago

    You looked great. Better than the cargo capris, t-shirt and flip flops I saw waiting for you.

  • ironkurtin replied 8 years ago

    Great outfit! Love that dress.

  • Amy replied 8 years ago

    Thanks, ladies!

    Yes, you've seen the dress before:


    It's one of my favorites :)

    Anna, I LOVED your jacket. If you ever tire of it...well, I'll be stalking it, lol :)

    Gorgeous. Love the print and colors of the dress. Those colors do look good on you. I can't wear tights/stockings without snagging.

  • qfbrenda replied 8 years ago

  • Joy replied 8 years ago

    You look lovely in that gorgeous dress!

  • anne replied 8 years ago

    A lovely outfit Amy - and I can't quite believe another YLF meet-up!!

  • christieanne replied 8 years ago

    What a fun occasion! It's good that some people still dress up for events. Seems so sad that the world has gone so ultra casual.

    I can understand why that is a favorite dress - absolutely beautiful for you and the purple topper is perfect to go with.

    I like this sooo much,Amy- especially that it's shiny and colourfull ed, and so to me this match to the nines with Mrs. Butterfly's theme:-))

    *gasp* That dress! I love, love LOVE it on you! It's so fab, I'm sure no one noticed the snag in your tights. :)
