Hi ladies!


I'm attending a performance of "Swan Lake" in a few months at a downtown arts center (my seats are in a balcony box, which contains two rows of 12 seats each)...looking forward to

Every time I hear balcony box seats, I think of Pretty Woman when they went to the Opera. I always picture a long gown for the ladies and a tux for the men. While this may be a little too much, I could picture myself wearing a cocktail dress for this occassion.

Enjoy the ballet!

I would wear a dress appropriate for a high-end evening out or an evening wedding.

I think I'd opt for going with a high end look, just cause it would be fun! It's a special evening so why

I think you have it covered, pretty well. I like the sound of the cross over top with the skirt. I agree on going formal, it's a special event for you, why not go all the way with it.

That sounds like a very pretty ensemble for a wonderful evening.

I just went to the ballet and people were wearing everything from fancier dresses to jeans. You might be very hot in a sweater so I would recommend going with the the crossover top instead. The good thing about black is that you can't really go wrong. Another option would be a knee length dress (nothing to fancy). Most importantly, I would suggest posting pictures of your look on GOTRYITON (www.gotryiton.com) for final feedback! Have fun at Swan Lake!!!!
