The purpose of art is higher than art. What we are really interested in are masterpieces of humanity.” ― Alonzo King

Surprise! You get a bonus outfit post on the eve of Christmas Weekend! Well, aren’t you guys the luckiest ducks?

I thought it’d be fun to share with y’all what I wore to my first-ever ballet show, give you a glimpse of some after-the-show shenanigans with my friends (we’re big kids at heart) and let you in on some pretty good weekend sales!

When Katie over at Avant Chamber Ballet reached out to me and asked if I’d like to attend a ballet show and bring some of my friends.

I totally agreed for three reasons.
What I Wore to the Ballet + Weekend Sales | She Sweats Diamonds

First, I have never been to a ballet before, especially one at Christmas.

What I Wore to the Ballet | She Sweats DiamondsRachie, me, Kimmy and Tori during intermission! We had to stand up because we were sitting for awhile and wanted to stretch our legs. I mean, why not use that as an opportunity for a selfie?

I hadn’t planned on taking an outfit photo, but Rachie wanted me to since all the lights were so pretty. Definitely couldn’t deny that, haha! We tried to wait awhile as a blogger was doing her own shoot.

Well, she was taking forever and Rachie was dying, haha! So Tori and Kimmy got to witness my fashion blogging shoots in-person. They were shocked at how fast Rachel and I were and made me laugh so much!

In the end, I’m happy Rachie made me take photos of what I wore to the ballet! Rachie is that good. We make a great team, haha! Sorry for the blurry night photos, but gotta make do with what you got, right? I can’t imagine what my photos will look like once I get my awesome camera for blogging and vlogging!

Now, about what I wore to the ballet…

My dress is old, but I found this Dakota dress and Ellen dress from Alamour the Label that are stunninggg options! My bad is old as well, but this woven box clutch is affordable and comes with a chain.
