Help A Sister Out | What To Wear To The Ballet

Felicia from My Personal Legend writes in:

I need your impeccable fashion advice. My husband is taking me to my first ballet next weekend. And I am not sure what to wear. We live in a very small southern country town. It’s so small that prom dates go to places like Apple B’s and think its 5 star. =) I want to dress up but don’t want to appear way over dressed but I know jeans and probably slacks/dress pants are out. I also have a very small budget $50-$75 tops. It’s cool enough here now that boots will work and I have one pair of brown leather and one velvet slouchy version perfect for leggings or etc. I also have a large assortment of heels. I am loving the new red fashions for fall. I don’t like big heavy collars around my neck. I am a bit on the chubby side, and carry the weight in my face like mad crazy. Any advice would be great!!

Oh how fun! If it’s a small town, I definitely wouldn’t go all out but it’s also a great opportunity to get a fun new outfit. You could definitely wear a casual dress and tights and boots. Or you could go with the boots, leggings and a cute tunic top or sweater.
