ATTEN...TION!!

Last Saturday my daughter and I went to see the Dallas Black Dance Theatre company perform. My daughter's teacher, who is in the company, was kind enough to give us 2 tickets. What a BLESSING!! They did an amazing job and my daughter was so inspired and motivated to get more focused on her dance. It was very spur of the moment so I had to wear what I already had on. Ironically, it was a tutu!! lol Because this outfit has sort of a ballet meets military theme I thought it would be fun to pose in some military positions.

Position 1: "ATTEN...TION!!!" (with a handbag of course) lol

Jacket: I.N.C. (Macy's)
Dress worn as skirt: Isaac Mizrahi (QVC)
Boots: Sofft
Handbag: Michael Kors
Sunnies: F21
Belt: Lane Bryant


Position 2: "SALUTE"
Thank you for all of your encouraging comments on my previous post. It can be somewhat uncomfortable letting complete stangers "IN" but I am so glad that I did. I felt it was important to let you all know that I love fashion but it does not define me. Please don't let it define you. We are more than our outfits!
With Love,
Kiah

This almost has a punk rock feel to it. Really cool. Meanwhile, I love dance and love to watch dance performances so I'm sure you and your daughter had a grand ol' time.

The contrast of feminine lace and military is purely awesome! You look very nice.

Isn't it wonderful to see a child inspired. They have the look in their eyes like they can accomplish anything. I know your daughter will do her thing!

Absolutely stunning and if you ever decide that the jacket has to go, please send it to me. I love military style.
How nice that you and your daughter got to go to the dance performance. When I was younger, I wished I could be a dancer. Unfortunately, I never got to take classes until I was an adult.

I am loving the military/tutu look! You look so fierce and I love that your personality shines through your clothes. The clothes don't make you, you make the clothes. That alone inspires me. Keep being who you are!
