I've been too busy playing opera to write. I really should be heading to the shower so we can play an afternoon Carmen. Instead, I'm making time to write just for fun. All because of a darling bit of fluff.
I don't even know what category to choose for this post. I bought it at the opera gift shop so it's a bit like music. But it's also inspiring my muse so maybe it's even more like creativity. It's a little bit like a makeover so it fits well in Courageous Communication. P.S. to Inside Out Makeover.
No matter the category, I just have to share. A colleague told me about these headpieces a couple of weeks ago. I finally made it to the gift shop earlier this week to see for myself. I tried one on and was instantly transformed! So cute! But where would I wear it? Later in the pit, I excitedly shared my find. A friend suggested I might have to create opportunities for wearing something that made me so happy. That was all I needed to hear. Last night I returned with money in hand.
Fascinators! Recently in the public eye due to a beautiful and stylish Duchess, these are ethereal confections for your head. Set at a jaunty angle they add charm and whimsy. All tulle and feathers and lace--try one on and you won't be able to stop smiling.
An opera house employee had just arrived last night with fresh stock of hair accessories--the seventh of the season! There were piles of fascinators. So many that it was hard to choose. But then, they are all so darling you really can't go wrong. My husband was with me when I shopped. I asked if he liked them. He said he liked how much they make me smile.
