Bewitching

Went to see Body Torque a la Mode (presented by The Australian Ballet. click link for facebook album).  A spectacular contemporary production and collaboration with upcoming Australian designers.

The same night our famous sails were lit up for the opening of Vivid Live at The Sydney Opera House * (NB. this is a video and will open in a different window). 

...the night of dance and light was bewitching... twas magic... I felt very Morgan le Fay wearing what I wore.  Pity the only magical ability I have is making chocolate disappear faster than the speed of light...



*************************
*Vivid Sydney is a month long festival of light and music.  I will be adding more Opera House pics later, so please check back.
I will also be adding more outfit pics... I took these pics very late that night, way past midnight and it was cold and raining and I was tired plus I haven't been in the mood to take pics and no, you're not dreaming, yes this is backdated.
*************************************
wearing:
vintage tweed coat-dress, which got many compliments and oh but of course I wafted around and descended stairs with much theatrical flair * chocolate & gold lurex leggings * OTK brown leather boots * bronze 'obi' wrap belt

I am not at all surprised that you inspire women to dress up more formally when they go to the ballet/opera/concerts etc! You look fabulous dear Dusk. I really love that dress, I feel as though it comes with magical powers! You just have to tap into them ;)

I've just started blogging, and I have a crap load of pics and I just saved some of them on blogger to be published. I wonder if the day you save them is the day when it'll come up published and how the whole "backdated" thing works? *sigh*

On another note, you looked great! Correct on the Morgan le Fay front! Very witchy with the big arm hole sleeves- all you're missing is a big hood & a wand, but you've already got the sparkles. I love the picture you took of the opera house. I wanna go..

What a fun animation you're doing with those pictures. I wonder how you did it. Fabulous.

Leah said...

Magical stuff... I wish I knew how to do that sort of technical computer biz... meanwhile, I know you like accessories, take a look at what I just made! ... oh!! as I wrote this, I realised you'd already commented!! One step ahead of me!! Actually I do have one of these bracelets in an Indian style but it's very fine and not so chunky-chain-like. I'm going to try to find metallic thread soon so stay tuned!

Tanvi said...
