OBT presents Cinderella

Earlier in March, Joel and I had plans to go see Oregon Ballet Theatre present Cinderella with another couple. Unfortunately our friends ended up having to cancel at the last minute so...
We got to take our nieces! It was their first ballet, as well as Joel's first ballet ;)
My sister-in-law always dresses them so cute! They looked like little princesses, so of course I had to get them tiaras to match--you can't watch Cinderella without a tiara!
What I wore: dress: Kohls Jennifer Lopez (old) // Cardigan: Ross (old) // Shoes: Maurices (old) //
// necklace: white house black market //
I had a lot of fun getting dressed up. I haven't been to a ballet in years!

My nieces favorite characters were the "ugly stepsisters" played by men. They really stole the show!

I'll end with a little "Throwback Thursday". When I was 11 or 12, I got to go see the world famous Bolshoi Ballet perform at the Eugene Hult Center with a bunch of my dance friends. During intermission we were running around out the lobby, and an older gentleman start calling after us "young ladies!" We thought we were in trouble so we just kept going, but he didn't stop so we stopped to find out what he wanted. He told us that they needed flower girls to give the ballerinas their flowers at the end of the bows and wanted to know if we could do it. We were so shocked!! The picture above is me on the left handing one of the ballerinas her flowers. I was in heaven!

Happy Thursday!


  1. It is the year of Cinderella! The girls had so much fun. Thank you for thinking of them and taking them with you! What a great memory.

    1. We were so happy to get to take them! I'm loving all the Cinderella this year :)
