Tonight Lauren and I are going to the opera at the Metropolitan Opera House to see La Traviata! To say I am excited is an understatement!
When I bought the tickets for the opera, I immediately knew what dress I was going to wear. When I think of the opera, I immediately think of women dressed to the nines and men in tuxedos. The opera is the perfect opportunity to get dolled up.
I bought this dress three years ago when Altuzarra did his collection for Target. There has been no buyer’s remorse; I knew there would be events that this dress would suit perfectly. The first time I wore this dress was last year for my cousin’s wedding in October.
Now, tonight, I will wear it again to the opera! This dress is the perfect classy, chic dress. I love the side slit, but the floral detail is my favorite part. Tonight is the perfect opportunity to put one my great-aunt’s vintage bags to use. It plays off the white flowers perfectly. A red lip adds classic glamour to the outfit.
