Ever since I was a little girl, I have been in love with the theater. My mom, an English and Literature teacher not just by profession but also by heart, always made sure she filled our home with books and music, and instilled in my brothers and I, a strong appreciation for the arts. She would take us to see plays and musicals and would sing at the top of her lungs in the car on the way home while we laughed and imagined what it would be like to be one of the actors onstage, running around in such a dramatic fashion and singing out so loud with their big, robust voices that our words flowed out over each and every chair in the theater, leaving the crowd no choice but to rise to their feet and erupt in fits of applause.
As I grew older, I soon realized that I did not have the voice (nor the stomach…stage-fright, yikes!) needed to stand onstage and sing or act in such a way. However, that didn’t diminish my love for getting dressed up in a new dress, curling my hair, and heading down to the theater to pretend I was straight out of the 50s, attending the theater for a night out on the town dressed in my finest attire. This past Friday night, I was once again whisked away when I attended the Houston Grand Opera to see La Boheme, dressed to the nines thanks to my lovely friends at francesca’s! From picking out this fabulous beaded skirt, to making sure I was completely accessorized from my chandelier earrings, down to my sassy black heels (which I wore for the first time that night and didn’t even have to break them in! NO blisters at all, which is extremely rare for me!), francesca’s was there to help me make sure I fit the image of the confident, fabulous lady I imagined in my head!
I have shopped at francesca’s for years, and I was so happy and honored to be outfitted by them for the Houston Grand Opera! I could not have dreamed of a more lovely night, and it was an honor to represent a brand like them.
