Last month... no, two months ago, (yikes!) Doug and I decided to drive into Boston for an evening of opera.  Our housemate had a bit part in Metro West Opera's double-bill of Suor Angelica and Trouble in Tahiti, and we won the free tickets from the company's Facebook giveaway, so there was no reason not to go!

Considering the tropical (and mid-century) theme of the second opera, I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to debut my new Pin Up Girl Clothing Hawaiian dress.  Clearly I'll have to take better photos later, because I love this dress!  The cut is flattering, the length is right, the material is comfy, the little matching bolero is great for a variety of occasions... I'm incredibly happy with it!  I snapped it up on one of their Online Yard Sale events, and I only regret not buying it in another color too.  I'm sure I'll be wearing it loads this summer.

The opera was very nice too, but since it was so long ago I can hardly advise you to go see it!  Note to self, write about performances as soon as they happen...
