The boyf and I are off to the opera tomorrow night and I am having a fashion meltdown. What the hell do you wear to the opera?? We are going to see La Traviata - the opera featured in Pretty Woman. I will not be looking as smart (or hot) as Julia Roberts and I will not, I'm sad to say, be dripping in diamonds. I am worried that everyone else will be uber-smart and thoroughly blinged up and I will be there fresh from work in my ankle boots.
Unfortunately I don't think the boyf is going to buy me a cheeky Oscar de la Renta a la Aleaxndr Petrovsky in SATC so I think it is best if I come up with something to wear on my own. I have picked some dresses from net-a-porter that I would LOVE to wear to the opera. Unfortunately I can afford none of the below and will therefore have to raid my wardrobe for something not as spectacular but equally acceptable.
|2. Bow-Embellished Textured-Crepe Dress, £3915, Lanvin. OK, OK, this is a little out of my price range and super unrealistic but look how pretty it is! The colour and shape are so feminine, I just love it. Totally worth the price tag. Maybe.|
I think I will be going with a younger style of dress for my outing tomorrow evening. If I look semi-decent I shall get the bf to snap my outfit so that I can share with you lovely lot. Sadly, none of the above will be welcoming themselves into my wardrobe but a girl can dream no? Have any of you been to the opera? What would you recommend wearing?
