Hansel and Gretel - A Fairytale Ballet






Lace Dress- H&M
Shoes + Watch - M&S


Hello lovelies! 

Yesterday, I had the wonderful pleasure of attending the Scottish Ballet production of 'Hansel and Gretel' at my local theatre. What can I say? It was a truly magical show, with beautiful costumes and fantastic set design! I was really impressed with the choreography, which showcased a modern take on the classic fairytale. The bright colours and use of props was brilliant and provided a visually great show. I have been fortunate to see many musicals and shows on the London West End, and I'm usually quite sceptical when attending the theatre in my local town, as I always think it can't be as good quality as the ones I've seen in London. However, this fairytale blew me away and I was truly fixed to the storyline and dancing, it was a lovely afternoon! The ballet is running until the end of February, and if you get the chance to go, I promise you won't be disappointed. You can find pictures of the show below, where you can see for yourself how magical it really was! 

I wore a cream lace dress from H&M that I bought years ago, but it's a simple, classic outfit perfect for an afternoon at the theatre. I paired it with my pretty court shoes from M&S and a couple of cute necklaces. I went out for cocktails with friends afterwards and I simply threw on a fitted blazer and heels, for a seamless outfit transition from day to night. 

More soon, 

Helen

  24. Your dress is so pretty! I love it. And the show looks amazing. How's the new year treating you? If you're like many of us and have resolved to spend a little less this year, we'd love to tell you about Dorco. We're a shaving company providing quality razors for up to 70% less than leading brands. Chances are you're paying way too much for razors. Plus, by switching to Dorco you can finally afford to change your blades often, which will result in happier, healthier skin (something else I think we all want in 2014!) You don't have to sacrifice quality to save so much, though. Read what others think about our products at DorcoUSA.com, and check out our prices for yourself while you're there. Thanks for hearing us out, and we wish you all the best in 2014!

  71. you look so dainty and sweet! perfect in watching a ballet recital indeed. :)
    anyway, I always adore ballet, in whatever forms even if it makes me miss ballet even more. seriously miss dancing in the mirrored hall. I still dance though, but not in recitals, just in events. :(
    We never did Hansel and Gretel, I think. So the ballet must be super interesting! Hope I have seen it too!

    anyway, have a lovely week dear! :)

  80. Firstly, your dress is gorgeous!
    Secondly, I really love going to the theater and I have seen some of my favourite shows at my local theater. A lot of the ones I have seen were amateur productions and I haven't found that made my enjoyment of them any less, they put so much time and effort into them it really shows on the stage.

  93. Lovely outfit! I really like you pear necklace. I have only been to a play 3-4 times but I have never really had what I would call an amazing experience..they have been just ok but still quite entertaining..the experience is so much more different than watching a movie. I guess when you get to watch a really great play the experience must be so vivid and wonderful with the dancing, clothing, music.... By the way thank you for following me, im following you back..i loved your style .. i was looking at your previous posts :3!
