Twinkle Toes.

Yesterday evening the hubby and I had a date night to see the New York City Ballet. We popped over to PJ Clarke's for a quick bite (is it just me or is the menu at the Lincoln Center location way more robust than the one on the East side? Even so, I like the original location on 3rd Ave better—just saying.), then we headed across the street for the show.


Check out McMuffin's new glasses and my equally exciting salad!


The performances included: Agon, Square Dance, and Episodes. And the dancers are beyond amazing. If you saw Black Swan I don't need to tell you how hard they work and how much pressure is put on them to achieve graceful perfection in every performance—yea, yea, yea, the movie might have been a smidge exaggerated—nonetheless these guys and gals are true athletes.

Another jewel of the ballet is the theater itself. I love going to the David H. Koch Theater—it's like walking into a jewelry box.



Inside the theater. Doesn't it look like stacks of the Cartier love bracelet?


The only sparkle I rocked last night was the new bracelet the boys gave me for Mother's Day, but in the future one of these tulle ensembles might be appropriate along with the signature Cartier bracelet. I'm not sure which came first, the performance hall or the bracelet (let me know if you know) but one HAD to influence the design of the other—I just KNOW it.

Okay, the sparkles on the tights and the studs on the shoes might be a little TOO much, but it's the ballet—and I LOVE costumes! Especially sparkly ones. Basically, anything sparkly—there I said it.
