A Night at the Nutcracker

Photography: Ella B Photo
Dress: Amanda Uprichard c/o / Earrings: Baublebar c/o / Rings: Baublebar c/o / Bracelet: Baublebar c/o / Bag: Bebe (old similar here) / Shoes: Badgley Micshka / / Lips: Pucker & Pout - 2x Roseberry 1x Fly Girl
 Last Friday I was talking to Todd on the phone while he was waiting to get on a flight to Pennsylvania (2x last week for another oral surgery interview) he surprised me by saying that this Saturday we are going to see the Nutcracker at the Winspear Opera House in Dallas. I was absolutely over the moon when he told me this because I LOVE the nutcracker! 

While I get giddy about anticipating a night full of ballet I'm also excited to ditch the 9-5 leggings for something a bit more glam. I'm going for a classic look of black and winter white with a bold red lip. Very Marilyn if you ask me. 

This dress is apart of the Amanda Uprichard bridal collection, and it's a perfect contender for a night at the Nutcracker. You guys know how I love me some bridal shoots, and was so excited when this beauty was sent to me as part of their bridesmaid collection. The year before Todd and I got married I was apart of 6 weddings within one season, and that meant lots of money spent on bridesmaid dresses. I'm sure we can all agree that there's nothing worst than spending so much money on a bridesmaids dress, and never wearing it again. I'm sorry wallet.... 

What I love about the Amanda Uprichard bridal collection is that all their pieces are beautiful, and simple enough that it's easy get to additional uses out of it. This dress is perfect for whether you are a bridesmaid, attending a holiday party, or even going to the Nutcracker :)
