A Nutcracker Christmas

First off, I apologize for the quality of these photos. I made sure to pack my camera and SD card but somehow managed to forget the battery. Silly me! 
Its become a bit of a tradition that I see The Nutcracker every Christmas. I didn’t celebrate the holiday growing up even though I very much wanted to and watching The Nutcracker would somehow always make up for that. Since then, I always make sure I consume some form of Nutcracker cinema around the holidays. My fella and I celebrated (a late) Christmas together this year and it was my 2nd ever celebration. One of my gifts was tickets to see the ballet and I just about cried when it came time to go. I couldn’t wait to get dolled up and head out for our fancy evening together. He sure knows how to make this lady happy!
In usual blogger fashion, I spent quite some time mentally planning my outfit. If it wasn’t for ModCloth’s 50% off sale, I wouldn’t have nabbed this beautiful green velvet dress. It just screams Sarah Anne doesn’t it? I was a bit concerned that 4x would fit more like a 2x but luckily its full of stretch and fits me like a glove. I couldn’t have dreamt up a better outfit for this occasion and pairing it was Sockdreams’ polka dot gloves (did you know they sell gloves? so neat, right?) was the perfect addition. I received so many compliments and felt like a darn princess. Now if only it didn’t rain all over my hair!

    You look positively divine! That green velvet dress is such a dream. What a perfect occasion to wear it to as well. Y'know, I don't think I've ever seen the Nutcracker in full? It seems like maybe I've seen the Barbie DVD of it as some point in my life. haha That's as close as I've gotten!
