WTW: Lion King

Sorry for forum hogging.  I'll post all my WIWs to these great events in a single thread after they're past :)

A good friend of ours is taking my husband and me to "The Lion King" (musical) in an upscale theater tonight.  I was told "wear a dress or a skirt, but not super formal".

Here's my ideas. 

What do you think?

#1 Orange with floral blazer
#2 Navy with floral blazer
#3 Black with houndstooth
#4 Snake print
#5 Inspired by Angie's 'Happy Skirt'
#6 Inspired by Diana's rendition of Angie's Happy skirt
#7 Dark floral

    Sounds like lots of fun, hope you enjoy yourself!

    I really like options #1 and #5.  #4 is great as well.

    How fun and you have lots of fab options! I like #1, #2, #4 and #7 best. It really depends on the weather. Which do you like best?

    Thanks Tanya and Angie,

    I was leaning toward #3, as it was a Good Friday service contender that got bumped at the last minute.  But trying them on just now, I think #7 was my favorite.  Or #2 or #1.  I'm wearing the floral blazer tomorrow though, most likely.

    4 and 7 do it for me.  Those shoes are great!  Where did you get them?
  • MsMary replied 7 years ago
    My vote goes to 4, 5, and 7.

    You are going to LOVE the show!  What a treat!!
  • amiable replied 7 years ago
    Thanks you all!  The shoes are Kenneth Cole Reaction - thrifted last weekend.  The wedge is patent-covered cork and soooo comfy!

    Have you decided? I vote for 4,5, and 7. That's a big help, huh?!

    Given how cold theaters tend to run, I vote #2!  Have fun. The show is fantastic!
  • amiable replied 7 years ago
    Thanks all!  Haven't decided yet, but likely to go with #7 or #2.  Good point about the cold Thistle - it's so nice here today (and it rained this morning!) that I'm forgetting it's still pretty cold - especially inside a theater.

    Wow, you're all dressy!  My fave is 4 - simple and elegant.  :)

    #1 is great.
