Men in tights

One of my birthday presents last month was tickets to the WA Ballet. Timing was poor, what with my beloved Eagles playing in an Elimination Final (did I mention they took home the wooden spoon last year? No, I haven’t? Well they did. And they stuck by their coach, and their younger players, and woo-hoo it is Finals time!)

This outfit has been a bit of a favourite this past Winter for dressier events. I bought it down in Augusta during our long weekend away earlier this year. Made by a local woman it can best be described as Metallicus-like with a fitted and oh so comfy black dress and a fitted asymmetrical red jacket of the same material. Pop on my fav “going out boots”and I am comfy as.

We arrived at His Majesty’s Theatre with time for a glass of bubbles and then enjoyed The Taming of The Shrew. Costumes, prop, sets and lighting were  amazing. The ballet was great too but we both admit that we prefer the classical performances better. Speaking of costumes, the men wore muscle hugging, almost sheer tights. OOhhh laaa laaa! Just call me the President of the Ballet Bottom Appreciation Committee. They are fit and toned boys. And I love the role reversal in ballet where the boys’bodies are ogled. Certainly makes a difference from everyday life.

During intermission homme kindly checked AFL scores for me (he is a miserable Dockers’suppoerter) and I experienced some tense minutes awaiting each update until the final siren when it was confirmed we won by 3 points!!! I am guessing we have reached the end of the road this year but fingers crossed for next Saturday.

Thanks to Kymmie for hosting Fancy Pants, go on, check out this gorgeous girl.

  1. Oooh laaa laaa! To you AND those lovely toned bodies in tights. You’re so funny, and I’m sitting her giggling at your appreciation committee. Perhaps I might join your committee!

    I am still yet to find my camera to upload yesterdays’ fancy pants. So, I’m behind the eigh-ball. But you my dear, look AMAZING!

    (And I started my first sugar free day yesterday.) Oh, the headaches!

  2. You look FABULOUS. Can’t believe you recently had a birthday and you were HOW OLD? Surely not. I’m finally going to do a Fancy Pants link up in three weeks – when I’m wearing a wedding dress! 🙂

  3. Oh i love meeting new fancy pants-ers!!! Look at that ensemble, although anyone would guess that your support….another team (the bombers!)…but looks like your eagles did you proud and I could think of a lot worse that oogling men in tights!!! love your outfit xx

  4. You look incredible in red – coupled with the black it makes your golden hair shine!

    I’ll let you ‘have’ the guys in tights – the slightly-too-revealing bulges of their ‘front bottoms’ were always a bit confronting for me 🙂

  5. I have to agree with everyone’s comments. You look fabulous xx
