I had the honour of attending the National Ballet of Canada Diamond Gala last night and I had something in my closet to wear! I had my hair done (thanks G from Cattiva Salon), my nails freshly polished and my make up done as well (beautiful job J from Bobbi Brown Sherway Gardens). I received lots of stares walking around Sherway with that much make up on at 3:30 pm on a Wednesday.
The great thing about a dress that is well made and has a classic shape is that you really can keep it in your closet for 10 years and wear it one evening and it still looks beautiful.
I borrowed some beautiful costume jewelry that I put on right before the event. If the pieces of jewelry were real I would have needed an armoured guard escort me around the event. Sorry I forgot to take pictures of the jewelry.
Above are some Instagram shots of the evening. The ballet pieces (there was a performance) were beautiful and I had a wonderful time.
