I know it’s been awhile since I posted but the new year is here and I have all these new ideas! I’ve been meaning to blog about my experience attending the Nutcracker Ballet but I’ve just been so busy so I’m glad that you can finally read all about my look!
This was my second time attending the ballet performance by the Texas Ballet Theater and they never disappoint. I’m so glad I got to attend with Dania this year too! The whole performance is absolutely breathtaking and beautiful and I love dressing up to make the night feel even more magical. The Nutcracker is such a classic, elegant story and I recommend dressing up since it’s not a regular performance to see! It’s a perfect little Christmas tradition as well! I love to dress up in gowns and feel special because there’s not many occasions after high school to wear long gowns so I take advantage of the moments when I can. Unfortunately, this year, I procrastinated on tickets and finding a gown but thank goodness for Windsor gowns! They have the PERFECT gowns for any occasion, even last minute shopping on a budget! I just clicked the “Under $50” tab to browse through their selections and put my dress on hold and even found earrings in store to match! My gown was only $46!!! I’m absolutely in love with it; it has such a sophisticated edge and perfect to use for other formal occasions in the future. I decided to play up my look by thinking BOLD. I had dark smokey eyes, darkened eyebrows, plum lipstick, and parted my hair in the middle. It was definitely a very dark and sultry look but I love how I felt elegant at the same time. I kept the jewelry to a minimum so I wore thin, gold bangles and a pair of gold diamond-shaped earrings. I hope you love the look! (*Also, the red gown my sister is wearing is also from Windsor! It was less than $50 as well!!)
