THE BOOK OF MORMON

Vintage dress // Dolce Vita fanta heels

Oh Seattle, you disappoint me. On Tuesday night, I got dolled up to see The Book of Mormon at the Paramount Theatre. I mean, it's not every day that I get to see a sold out, Tony Award winning musical. So I wanted to look nice, but not too nice because I live in a very casual city. I wore a simple black dress, accentuated with a few gold accessories, and a summery heel. I knew I would be just a tad overdressed. I'm the kind of person who will find any reason to dress up. (As in: We're going to Dominos for pizza? Let me get my heels!) When I get to the theatre, what do I find to my utter shock and dismay? Jeans. Jeans everywhere and gat damn flip flops too. It's not often that I'm embarrassed or disappointed with my city, but that night... Literally. I. Can't. Even. 

Anyways, here are my thoughts on the show:
First off, the music was unbelievably catchy. I couldn't stop myself from singing "hello, my name is Elder Price" over and over the whole walk home. The production was also top notch. I was surprised at how they reinvented the space with lighting, rotating sets, and props that glided in and out of view. The story is good, exactly what you would expect from the makers of South Park. It's funny in an offensive way. The characters get into trouble, they find a way out of trouble, and they learn a valuable lesson along the way. 

Bottom line: If you can get tickets, definitely go see it! There were a few still available during the week day showings, last I checked. If not, watch this video and wait for the movie to come out.

  2. I like that you went with the green heels instead of like a nude. Adds some flare to it.

  6. I'll be at the Book of Mormon tonight! Hopefully Friday-night Seattle will feel a little saucier and break out of their jeans. Doubtful. ;) I for one will be dressing up!

  12. Wow, some people really don't put in ANY effort to look nice for a special event, do they? Well... let me say, I'm sure you looked fabulous enough for the entire theater. Not so much over dressed, but the perfect look to capture everyone's eye, I'm sure. Those shoes would have had me gawking all night. SO. CUTE.
