Lady in Red: What I Wore to The Theatre in Winter

On Saturday night, I headed to the theatre with my school mum friends to see The Bodyguard.

I’d never seen the movie, but I’ve always been a fan of Whitney Houston and know all the songs from the soundtrack. (The show is fantastic!)

I’d decided when I paid for my ticket I would dress up for the night.

I had a $20 Birthday voucher from Witchery that needed to be used up before the end of July, so I headed to my local store and loved this red dress.

Red has always looked good on me and when I put the dress on, I knew it would be the perfect dress for my night out.

Wearing a Size 14

It had been reduced to $49.95, so with my voucher, the dress only cost me $29.95!

I’m wearing the size 14 and it is a roomy fit. It skims over every bump. No need for spanx or tummy sucking in underwear!

I’ve been to the theatre a few times in the last year or so. I’ve always gone in winter, so I’ve opted for a long sleeve dress. I also bring a jacket in case the air conditioning drops the temperature. But the last few times I’ve been, I’ve felt hot with a jacket on. A long sleeve or ¾ sleeve dress is the perfect outfit for heading to the theatre.

Here are four dresses I would have considered purchasing, if I hadn’t found my bargain buy from Witchery.
