At The Opera (Female)

To compete with the tuxedo, I needed to come up with something special.  To achieve that, I ventured deep into glamour.  Farther than I've ever gone before.

Here's my best effort.  What do you think??

  3. Glam to the max. You blew any expectations out of the water. I think this experiment can rival your prom one. Any excuse to wear a gorgeous dress, amirite?

    1. At a thrift-shop this week, for only $24. I fell in love with it at first sight.

      While the dress isn't my size, I did some clever engineering to make it fit. (I'm a 14 and the dress is a 6.)

  19. Stunning! A perfect complement to the tuxedo, thematically, glamour-ly, and palette-ly (those aren't words, I know, but you know what I mean).

  20. What do I think? I smiled with joy. If I saw you at the opera (I like going to opera and classical concerts), you would be perfect sitting in the top box. And I would come up in the interval and tell you how beautiful you looked x

  21. Alright I am so super jealous of your makeup here. I love the opera gloves =D Also your eyes are the coolest color I've ever seen.

  22. Gorgeous! What a beautiful dress!

  23. That dress is magnificent! An opera calls for a long hem and elegant colour palette (IMO), both of which this beautiful frock delivers perfectly. The only thing that might have to be concerned with her is looking better than the actresses on stage! :)
