Be a Work of Art

Last weekend, my husband and I went to see a play and I thought I would get a little dressed up by donning a tulle skirt and this new colorful top from Nordstrom. As it turns out, most people don't get very dressed up these days to go to the theater but I was happy to look a little special in tulle for the occasion. Dressing up a little was especially important to me because the play we saw was The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde and, as you may know, Oscar Wilde was a big fan of dressing flamboyantly and looking like a dandy. Those are two things that I can most certainly get behind! Well, I guess you could say I was paying homage to Wilde though my wardrobe, which seemed extravagant compared to what most others were wearing at the theater!

Tulle is definitely not something I would wear on a regular basis but it's fun for special occasions, weekends, or seeing plays by Oscar Wilde! This tulle skirt always makes me feel like a ballerina in one of Edgar Degas' paintings, especially because, in many of his paintings, the dancers' tutus had sort of a greenish tint like the skirt I am wearing in this post. So, between trying to be a "work of art" though my colorful ensemble and enjoying the art of Oscar Wilde, it was a terrific day with a lot of aesthetic appeal!

  1. You always wear the most perfect skirts! I hope you would like to join my Fancy Friday linkup party!

  2. It's the same in theatres in the West End of London Katie - some women are dressed in glam dresses, others in jeans! I dress up usually (any excuse) but especially if we are having a meal first. I love your tulle skirt and graphic tee - and the shade of your bag is gorgeous! xx Maria

  3. That skirt is just gorgeous! I love the green tulle skirt and how you styled it for the theater!



Say hello to Hello Katie! I would love to hear from you!
