I wore this to see The Nutcracker at The Met (which was so beautiful I was moved to tears) and to a holiday party that same evening. As soon as my girlfriends and I bought the tickets to the show, I knew I would wear a tutu. Nearly every other female attendee under the age of eight had the same idea, so I wasn’t alone, but I was the only adult dressed like a Sugarplum fairy who grew up listening to Nirvana. Maybe that should have made me feel old, but it made me feel magical. It was snowing in Manhattan, so I wore my inexpensive vegan booties. Every woman should own a pair for times like these when you can’t have your good shoes ruined (vegan booties won’t absorb moisture like leather) or your ensemble brought down by clunky snow boots.
