A couple of weeks ago, The Husband and I were asked by friends if we wanted to go with them see a musical that was playing at the Music Center in downtown LA. We hadn’t heard anything about the musical, A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder, but we were game for evening out so we said yes. Oh goody, a chance to dress up but maybe not too dressy because in “anything goes So Cal”, I know that theatregoers can and will wear whatever they want and The Husband would probably be dressed more on the casual side. And at around the same time, Jill Burgess and Adrienne Shubin had announced that the May theme for their How I Wear My series would be pearls so that became the basis for my theatre outfit. Their respective May HIWM posts, which showcase a number of women from around the world, are now up. Click on their names for the links to each of their posts and you’ll see a familiar face among the stylish ladies (that would be me).
The cardigan might look familiar if you’ve read Wedding In Fall or Wedding in Winter. I also wore one of the two necklaces with the Wedding In Fall outfit and the other necklace with the Wedding In Winter outfit. But unlike those other outfits, in this outfit I opted for a dark background for the pearls as opposed to light one and, in keeping with a more casual look, I wore a pair of slightly distressed jeans that I found recently at GoodWill.
The weather was beautiful that day and it was lovely to stroll around the grounds of the Los Angeles Music Center before the show. There is something about the sights and sounds of a fountain that are so mesmerizing and soothing. The musical was very entertaining. The storyline was amusing, the actors were spot-on, and the staging was very clever. If you have a chance to see this show, you should.
Now, onto the Powers The Flower link up for this week. My featured contributor from last week’s link-up is
Melissa of Stylista Fitness. Her sunny yellow print dress is so pretty and I love the flowers in the foreground of the photo.
I searched for a quote related to topic of this post and I found this one by an unknown author – “The pearl is the queen of gems and the gem of queens.” As there is something magical about a live theatre performance, there is also something magical about pearls. Dressed up or dressed down, they add a touch of elegance to an outfit like no other accessory can. How are you wearing pearls?
