A day at the ballet

Yesterday, I took my baby sister (okay, she's 13) to see the ballet Giselle at The Grand Opera House. Delaware is so fortunate to have First State Ballet Theater, and I am honored to have performed with them back in my dancing days.


"Kathy, where could I buy this exact dress?" Nowhere, because I invented it. I bought this white lace dress from Goodwill last weekend. I didn't try it on, because it's not worth $6.99 of my time to try on a dress that looks like it will probably fit. (If something is too big, I can take it in; if it's too small, I give it to Lizzie! Everyone wins.) This one fit in the technical sense, but it was a little too short and I didn't love the way it looked. I had a mint green dress from Delia's that I wasn't in love with either (not trying things on also applies to clearance items) so I detached the slip layer of the white dress and wore it over the mint dress. Ta-da! I completed the look with a black ribbon sash to tie it all together, pun intended.
