I paired the skirt with a vintage blouse, my new-ish belt from Motel Rocks, my faux leather H&M jacket, and a black lace slip. I actually wore black booties to the event. I let my date choose & he went for the booties, but now I wish I'd worn these gold ones! They make the belt pop better. The purse is Nine West from Macy's, which I got for something ridiculously cheap like $16. Sales are my best friend and also my worst enemy.
Ever since that incredibly dark production, the weather has taken a turn for the worst. I woke up this morning to snow on the ground (welcome to Minnesota) and today is horribly drizzly and gusty. I should have predicted this. I took the entire week off from work, and the weather always gets absolutely horrid when it knows I'll have a chance to be out in it!
Furthermore, last week I woke up with my throat absolutely swollen up and I couldn't swallow or talk. I skipped class and opted for the doctor, which ended up being a good choice because I was diagnosed with both strep throat and mono/glandular fever. They had to take a blood test to determine the mono, which left me lying in the office bawling my eyes out like a little baby. I'm so terrified of needles and blood! Anyways, needless to say, my energy is absolutely spent & I wish I could spend the days lying in bed sleeping, not running all over the Twin Cities. But if I must be running around, at least let it be to the opera!
