Costume Change

About a week ago I had the extreme pleasure of attending Priscilla Queen of the Desert in San Francisco. I’ve mentioned a handful of times how much I love the theater but I admit it’s been far too long since I saw my last show. Any show at the SHN Orpheum Theater will leave you wanting more and I promise you, if left to my own devices, I would’ve been walking away with a headpiece or two.

It was such a special treat to go backstage before the performance to see the costumes up close and personal. The detail and work that go into creating each piece is truly impressive. It reminds me that long before the costumes and set appeared this spectacular production started out as an idea in someone’s head! Fabulous, right?!

I felt like a night at SHN’s Orpheum Theater called for little pattern mixing. I’m a huge fan of metallic’s; they instantly dress things up and give off a lovely shine. But to keep the look fresh and fun I paired it with a graphic floral striped top. Vintage earrings from the 1930’s paired with a trendier spiked necklace made the accessories list. I LOVE pairing pieces from various decades together. Just like a costume in the show, it’s the unexpected details that make this look interesting.

Aren’t these headpieces amazing? Can you imagine wearing this while still standing up straight?!

Unfortunately, these fellas told me I couldn’t take a home a “memento” 😉

Talk about a statement shoe!

In my eyes personal style is just like the theater. You can wear whatever role you want to be! Give your look a unique style perspective. Be who you want to be. Wear what you want to wear. Try on a new role and don’t be afraid to experiment. I heartily encourage any kind of costume change… and most especially, a night at the theater!

A HUGE thank you to SHN for the invitation and hosting such a fabulous evening!

    1. […] So I wore this outfit a little while back when Mr. T and I were traipsing around the city, attending one of the many summer festivals. You may wonder if you read that correctly but yes, I did say summer. SF is notoriously chilly and foggy in the summer, so oddly enough many ouutfits are perfect to share in the fall with you fab folks, who probably live in places with normal weather patterns heh heh. With my day being comprised of a laundry list of “To Do’s”, including laundry, this outfit will be keep me comfortable (hello Converse!) but still has a punch of personality. I’m in love with this stripe & floral combination. Last time I wore it for a night out at the theater. Did you see it here? […]
