My Style Challenge: La Cage aux Folles

I got to go back to the Kennedy Center over the weekend for more art enlightenment! This time I saw La Cage aux Folles, the musical The Birdcage was based off of! Best of all, George Hamilton himself was playing Georges, the Robin Williams character (renamed Armand in the movie).

Hello, fabulous-ness!
There were selling boas at the giftshop, but I really wanted those pink boots! They also had signed copies of George Hamilton's book, Don't Mind if I Do.
It's so big in here!
I decided to try out this whole knot the bottom of a shirt thing with one of my cotton tees. It got a teeny bit stretched out, but here's to hoping it will all fall back into place once it's washed!
I'm wearing: Pink cami from United Colors of Benetton, knotted LnA tee, lace skirt from Pretty People Vintage, Belle by Sigerson Morrison shooties, Lovers + Friends faux fur purse from Revolve Clothing, Dolce & Gabbanna maxi coat, necklace from Last Call, Jimmy Choo for H&M cuff, and a ring party instead stacking on the bracelets! Let's see, some Banana Republic stacking ring, along with a gold band and my rose gold Tina Tang wedding band, many a super old ring from high school, and my engagement ring!
This is my "Hungry Model" pose
Love this skirt - a mini made just slightly more modest and somehow sultrier with a longer lace overlay!
Wish I had those legs!
I saw the show with my bestie Julie and her sister Monica. It was a riot and the performances were top notch. The men were fierce, the music catchy and I just about died over the costumes!
It was a spectacular show and I highly recommend to everyone!
