Theatre for Mom and I has been a special thing since I was about 14 years old. We had our tickets and even though we were probably fighting back then, we'd get dressed up and go out for a night. I have fond memories of all the plays and musicals we've seen over the years. It's a tradition I'm glad we're still doing.
This is my new dress from my shopping trip with Ruth:
I love the draping on the bodice. We walked to the local pub for dinner pre-show, so got to wear somewhat practical shoes. Yes, I can actually walk about a mile in my Fluevogs!
A close-up of my accessories for the evening:
L bought me that purse last year for Christmas. It is one of the most beautiful things I've ever seen. The back is solid of the fabric on the ends. And check out the inside:
If you look up Spencer & Rutherford (www.spencerandrutherford.com) they are designers from Australia who make the most fabulous bags I've ever seen. How L found one of their bags in this sleepy town (and he got it half price - and I know it was still over $100!), I'll never know. The details on this bag are just amazing: the metal frame and handle has etched flowers on it. The strips of fabric on the front have hand-sewn sequins and beads on them. And that lining!
Mom: silver knit top (Melanie Lynne, Christmas gift from me last year!), skirt (Chloe), shoes (Mantles, used to be mine), necklace (Melanie Lynne, Christmas gift from me).
Me: dress (Banana Republic), tights (Hue), shoes (Fluevog), gold necklace and bracelet (Jones New York).
