Night at the Ballet: Outfit Wishlist

Alexa Cropped Top – £8, Platform Bow Heels – £30, Jewelled Necklace – £12, Velvet Clutch – £18, Kirsty Full net Midi – £18

I love me a Christmas outfit and when Boohoo got in touch asking if I fancied putting together a festive outfit I knew exactly what I wanted to do. With The Nutcracker coming up in the next couple of weeks I thought I’d compile a wee dream outfit for a night at the ballet. I wanted to create something that felt very elegant so kept it mostly a neutral colour palette with a flash of blue in the jewelled necklace. I just love the midi tutu skirt – and can’t really decide between the tan or the black. I’ve been after a good tutu for ages and this one fit the bill by being the perfect length/perfect price. I teamed this guy with some platform bow shoes which I know I would end up wearing a bajillion times and a simple velvet twist clutch (which I would prob dress up with some vintage broaches.)
I’m thinking a plum lip and lashings of eyeliner to finish it off, and maybe an oxblood nail polish. I think this wee guy would be perfect for some pre-theatre dining before heading off to the ballet (or theatre or panto if you are so inclined.) For me it’s a polished look that is versatile but still got the Christmas fanciness I’m so keen on. All the pieces I can imagine wearing again (maybe team the midi net skirt up with some cons and a t-shirt for a nice laid back day look) and the platform shoes are just kind of made for being in my wardrobe.  The whole lot clocks in at under £86 which is cheaper than I usually pay for a pair of shoes so I’d say for a whole outfit is pretty bangerang.
Anyone else going to the theatre/ballet this year?
