Well I was very pleased to see the Vancouver Opera blog announce who the other live-bloggers were going to be for the world premiere of Lillian Alling. I am pleased to be sharing the blogger table at the Vancouver Opera opening night of Lillian Alling with: Frances Sprout, Miranda Lievers and Nik Belonio.
And of course once I knew who else was going to be live-blogging alongside me at the world premiere (I love saying that! When was the last time there was a world premiere of an opera in Vancouver?) I felt inclined to check out their blogs to see how they are preparing for tomorrow night’s performance of Lillian Alling.
I was shocked to find out that they are already considering what they are going to wear to the opera. I had not given this a thought until I saw that the other live-bloggers were going to be treating this like a real dress-up affair. So that got me thinking about what I will be wearing.
Should I wear my high-mileage burgundy Boulets?
My burgundy Boulets have seen many hard miles but still hold a perfect shine once I put a bit of elbow-grease into them. They do have some wear marks on them that are difficult to disguise but they are as comfortable as a pair of slippers and work quite nicely with a couple of my suits.
My other footwear option; my relatively new black Boulets.
My black Boulets are the boots that I wore on the day that my Sweetheart and I got married. These boots have become one of my favourite pair of boots. They are not as well-worn as my burgundy Boulets, and as such will accept a polish more readily than my burgundy Boulets. And really, a pair of black Boulets is the equivalent of a woman’s “little black dress”, they really do go with anything I wear.
I have already decided to take my Dayton Black Beauties, Drivers, and Sidekicks out of the mix. But I need your help on my final decision; which boots do I wear to the world premiere of Vancouver Opera’s Lillian Alling? Please help me out!!
Here is a pic of the suit I have decided to wear;
