Just a quick note before I head to rehearsal! Last night was Orientation and song assignment (shockingly I got opera-ish songs! who'd have guessed? I do get to sing Phantom of the Opera too. I'm so shocked... that was sarcasm by the way) and tonight is our first dance rehearsal! The title of this post by the way refers to the fact that every time I do a musical everyone calls me Opera Girl, but every time I do an Opera they call me Musical Girl. I just can't win...
As I mentioned earlier, I found the solution to the whole rehearsal clothing dilemma. I went to American Apparel (not someplace I normally shop) and found two knit dance dresses, a leotard and skirt! I figure with tights and shorts they should be perfect for keeping cute, yet being functional! So from now on I'm going to try to do one post a week showing my day wear and rehearsal wear. I'm hoping to mix and match somewhat and try to keep it interesting. So here's what I wore today:
Belt- Torrid years ago
Earrings, necklace, & watch- F21, Chinatown San Francisco, vintage
and here's what I'm wearing to rehearsal:
Dress- American Apparel
Jacket- Target (theatres can get cold oddly enough)
Shoes- Rocket Dog via DSW
Now I would never normally sport anything like this as day wear, but for rehearsal it's pretty cute I think! And fits dress code (no bras, booty shorts)! I tried to keep a little vintage feel with the scarf and red lips. Which by the way I bought some new lipstick. It's Buxom (by bare essentials or whatever) Barcelona. It's a matte lipstick and stays pretty much all day. This is my second application today and I did it an hour ago! I highly recommend it!
Okay enough! I've got to scoot! I'm way more excited than I know what to do with myself! haha!
