Black, Gold, and Fur at the Ballet
My Christmas gift from Shawn for the last four years has been tickets to the New York City ballet (the performance of my hinting) with fondue to start at Kashkaval. This year was no exception. I got out an “Uptown” friendly dress (i.e. not a mini skirt), my new shiny wedges that were practically free, and the faux fur that was a bridesmaid gift from my sister’s wedding (I told her I’d wear it all the time and I meant it!)
Being at Lincoln Center, seeing the ballet, is in short incredible, even for non-dancers. The ambiance of the jewel-looking lighting and all-dressed-up crowd is perfectly appropriate for such high-brow art. This year’s performance (of hinting) was Scenic Delight, which took the most beautiful vignettes of the most striking ballets and put them together into one, with some of the costumes by Valentino accompanied with hot pink pointe shoes. That specific ballet is all sold out this year (#sorrynotsorry), but there’s always 2015.
