Carnegie Hall

I tried to be very conscious of my hem lengths for my entire chaperoning time. I enjoy wearing mini skirts myself, but I didn't want them to slow me down or to be rather too shocking to the students since they were coming from a very different culture. So when I heard we needed a formal dress for their performance at Carnegie Hall I quickly bought this one since most of my evening dresses involve high hems, sequins, or ridiculous amounts of tulle (none I felt really fit the image of someone chaperoning anyone). I wore a cardigan the whole time I was around the group so my tattoos were hidden, but I slipped it off when they were rehearsing and I had some time to explore Carnegie Hall. It was actually one of my favorite breaks during the trip because we were given total freedom to wander up and down the halls looking at signed photographs of famous musicians, admire ornate elevators, and even experience the view from the balconies. As one might assume, it's a beautiful building and their performance was sold out which made the whole evening feel really special.

This is one of your most beautiful blogs. In general I dislike tatoos, but I think yours are an exception and I love yours.

And really nice photos of Carnegie Hall as well.

This is a perfect LBD (well, not too little, I like the hem length). It truly looks like it would be appropriate for most anything!

Your dress is so classic, and I like how to frames your tattoos on your back! The cardigan is a great way to cover it up (for the more conservative), you look really lovely!

These shots are really beautiful. I like the length of the hem too, it's such a classy dress, though so simple. Looks really sweet with your tattoos too.

Rebecca, do you ever sell any of your clothes on eBay or Etsy?

@JJ, no. occasionally I'll open a "shop my closet" to get rid of some things but I usually just end up giving them to friends or a local thrift shop instead of selling them.
