Hi you guys,
(post contains affiliate links/Werbung/Markennennung/Beitrag enthält Affiliate Links-not sponsored)
I wanted to share this post so long with you but somehow it got lost in the hustle and bustle of summer and in my endless drafts folder. Anyways I am sharing it now as the topic doesn´t get old. There are always festive ocassions or visits around us so it normally would be great to have a great cocktail dress as a backup in your closet. Truth be told – probably no one has.
I am sharing more about the one I am wearing in today´s blog post but also about some others which would be appropriate for the opera or theatre or musical visits.
The cocktail dress I am wearing above is from Asos and I got in April for our trip to Hamburg. I wanted to wear it to the Lion King musical and I did. Loved it every second and felt super chic but not overdressed. The colorful pattern is super playful and made sure it wasn´t to rigid for a musical visit. I have to admit though the percentage of great dressed people has been very low. Many of them only wore jeans and t-shirt and in my opinion it isn´t to much to ask to wear a dress and heels / nice shirt and jacket, but obviously it was though. Most Germans aren´t the best dressed. I know and accept that but I thought at least in such a huge city with so many foreign visitors I would have seen better looks.
But let´s move on with the look. A pair of patent heels add the right flair to a dressy outfit. Just a little sexyness it needs. To complete the look I kept accessories in all black. My favorite bucket bag and a black fitted blazer from H&M. My lipstick is Rebel from MAC.
Fun fact about this look. I had glitter all over my hair and blazer jacket cause I bought the wrong travel sized hairspray. The Elvital ones come in satin and glitter finish but the bottle looks the same. I had the satin before so I didn´t read and just grabbed one and checked out. A few days later our whole room / myself was coverd in glitter as I wanted my hair to stay in its place during the musical visit.
As always thanks for stopping by. Take care. See you.
