So Ev this year bought the Holy Grail of tickets--- Opening Night at the Met! This year our tickets also include the Opera Gala beforehand-- a lavish sit down dinner with a champagne reception. SO. Now I have to find something to wear, and lord, the stress! My latest obsession has been with Marchesa-- I absolutely love their couture line and am completely drawn to the delicate embellishments that always beautifully decorate their designs. Here are two of my favorites right now. And yes, they break the bank. big time.
