"I don't think you're ready for this jelly"

This jelly being the contemporary production of Salome witnessed tonight. The adaption of Oscar Wilde's play, featuring the dance of the seven veils, has been transformed into a debaucherous re-telling for the modern stage. The fact that the dance has been replaced by the actress Salome shaking her booty to Destiny's Child's "Bootylicious" shows how the play is attempting to reach a more youthful audience. In my opinion it did not achieve success as the irony was lost on most of the older audience members, but I enjoyed it!

The outfit I decided to wear tonight had been rejected earlier in the week as it was too dressy but seemed appropriate for the theatre (Carrie Bradshaw eat your heart out!):

Sequin jacket: F+F

Necklace: Primark

Dress: Primark

Orb pin: Vivienne Westwood

Bangles: Primark

Flats: New Look
