To the theatre


Assymetrical dress: Brand unknown
Red military ladder coat:: New Look
Mary Janes: Spain
Red roses clutch: H&M
Single flower diamante ring: H&M
Skull and Heart 3-finger knuckle duster ring: ASOS.com

This was what I wore to the theatre to watch Edward Albee's Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? I was a tad bit overdressed, but that's okay because I'm overdressed most of the time anyway. It's not every day that I get to go to the theatre so I definitely wouldn't want to waste this opportunity to dress up.

That charming necklace with the little key and bottle that says "Drink Me" was another birthday gift from the boy. He obviously knows me well because the necklace combines the two things I absolutely adore; quirky jewellery and the story of Alice in Wonderland. I love it to bits! When he first gave it to me though, I went, "Is that blood inside?" -.- Seriously, doesn't it look like a vial of blood? hehehe...

The play was pretty good and I thought the acting was great. I wasn't bored for a single moment because it moved pretty fast and also because there were lots of yelling. We (the boy and I) were lucky enough to get front row seats for just a fiver each because we were both under the age of 26. Being so close to the action meant that I could actually see Martha's (played by Sian Thomas) tears! The story is set in the 60s and the play consisted of 3 acts which were acted out entirely in the same room, with the same 4 characters. There was only one costume change the entire night.

Remember to enter my GIVEAWAY HERE! It ends 25th March! x

  8. Gloria: Thanks! Haha it does, right? Omg me, too! Even my boyfriend doesn't dress up, so it's just me most of the time -.-

    ANNIE: Thank you, sweetie

    Roshi: Thanks! Hahahaha...yummy?
    Oh, that's good :) I totally know what you mean, though. Things can be misinterpreted on the internet sometimes. All girls love shopping anyway and I think you're great because you're disciplined enough to sell what you won't wear anymore. I'm such a hoarder, my closet is bursting! Haha

    Love Makes The Girl: Yes, we had a lovely time, thanks :) And yeap, I was SO happy when he presented it to me. Major love!
    Haha...I think all fashion bloggers overdress so at least I don't feel left out.

    I.: Thanks, you too!

    London's-beauty: Thank you! Haha yeah major props for him!
    Oh yeah, I sometimes wear my 2-finger rings to class and usually take them off halfway hehe

  17. Lol it does look like a vial of blood but it's such a cute necklace! And I love your outfit. I'm the same, any excuse to dress up! Plus I think it's good to look nice when going to the theatre. When I went to Phantom of the Opera at Her Majesty's Theatre I expected people to at look quite nice but some actually wore an old t-shirt with old looking jeans. Your 'not Chanel' tank is cute too! I'm just catching myself up on your old posts here (been away from blogging for ages!). And congrats on the awards! :D Can't wait till your giveaway results - already entered!

  21. Thank you, everyone, for your sweet comments and compliments! *blush*blush*

    Ainie: I pulled the cork out because I'm curious and curiouser and curiouser like that ;) It turned out to be just some red gel-like substance
    Haha...I think we were just lucky to get front row seats. Being under the age of 26 means we got the tickets for like £5 which is uber cheap! :D

    Sharon @ Fun and Life: omg, I know what you mean! When I first went to a theatre in London (to watch Wicked), I was worried because all I had was a simply summer dress. I thought I'd be really underdressed, but when I arrived, I saw people wearing tshirts and ratty jeans and sneakers -_-"
    I also realized that the older generation dressed better though, which I totally respect because I think going to the theatres is such a treat :D
