Today I can finally say that this will be my last post from NYC. It was one of those trips where I just felt like I was home. So in love with this city.
On my first full day off after the tour, Eri & I got asked if we wanted comp tickets to see ABT’s opening night of Don Quixote, & of course we said, “Yes!” It was truly magical. I was pumped to see one of my childhood favorites, Gillian Murphy, perform the role of Kitri. She was dynamite! Not to mention the music by Minkus is to die for! I left feeling so inspired by her performance. If you have never seen Don Quixote before, (heck, if you’ve never seen a ballet before) I highly recommend this classical masterpiece. Definitely one of my all time favorites.
Not only was the performance magical, but my dress was certainly magical as well.
I felt so glamorous in this Marchesa Notte embroidered dress paired with these amazing sky blue heels (which are quickly becoming my new favorites). Our hair was freshly done courtesy of DryBar (more on that here) so you know we were confidently power walking those West Side streets.
After watching an incredible show, and snapping a few pics by the ballerina hippo currently displayed across the street from Lincoln Square, we walked over to The Smith (more here) for a scrumptious meal and refreshing cocktails while we relived (and critiqued) the entire performance. It was a perfect way to end a perfect day.
P. S. – I am officially back in the States! Stay tuned for my posts from Africa & Paris! (& a giveaway!)
