Last night was a trip to the ballet to see the Northern Ballet company's production of Cleopatra. The story of Cleopatra has never been told before so this was an original and modern take on ballet. The show was amazing! The combination of music, performers and choreography made the show seem seemless.
This turn in the weather has caused a shuffle of outfits as I have strived to find something cool to wear. I wanted to rock the bow tie shirt combination and I think it turned out well. Dressing for a night out to the theatre, opera or ballet is a real bugbear as it has become really difficult to get right and as a result I saw some horrors last night! Too tight dresses, full on gowns, people too dressed up and those not enough. Personally, I think it requires a mix of casual and smart, dressed down glamour as they say. Trying to get that "I've not tried too hard" look.
Anyways make of it what you will, here's my interpretation:
Bow tie: Primark
Trousers: New Look
Shoes: New Look
