Me and Bobby McGee
I love shoes. We know that. I also love the theatre. I got a dose of both this weekend when I was invited to a fundraising gala at our local community theatre. The "gala", which was really just a fancy schmancy word for "dinner theatre", was on Saturday night at 8pm and it got coooold here on Saturday morning. Well, cold for us. The dress that I wanted to wear needed some boots and tights. I love, love, love this look on other people but I've never tried it on myself. I decided to head over to DSW and see what I could find. I had never been to DSW because my area just got one. OH MY GOOD GRACIOUS! It was like the angels started singing when I opened the doors. Seriously. I could've danced and twirled but I managed to pull myself together. There were a few rows of boots. I didn't know what kinda pair I wanted so I circled a few (twenty) times, looking and thinking and touching. Then, over toward the back, I saw a separate Steve Madden boot display. I went over and fell in love. I don't have a picture of the dress but it's very flowy and hippy-looking. It's very me. I wore it and my new boots, big earrings- I looked like a dressy Janis Joplin. I liked the outfit so I will wear it again and get a pic.
The play was Ira Levin's Deathtrap. I have no idea, are you supposed to italicize that? Anyway, it was fabulous!! We ate dinner (salad, steamed veggies, pasta, pudding, wine) and then watched the show. It was funny and a little scary. I can always count on a great time at the theatre. Also, a small piece of my heart is heavy because I'd LOVE to be on stage. I cannot wait to go to NYC and see a show (or two) on Broadway.
