However, I did discharge on other responsibility, getting Paul played photographer for a Visible Monday shot. The lighting's not ideal here, obviously, but you get an idea of the nearly baroque patterning on my Simon Chang dress (viscose knit, so easy to wear). The back is plain black which doesn't really do much to tone down the noisy front, festooned with faux jewelry printed on the fabric. I like to think the simple shape keeps the chaos in check, but the dress certainly doesn't conform to some of the principles I've been trying to adopt since the last Paris trip. . . .
Vancouver Opera Facebook page. Notice that his tie picks up the colour of some of my dress's "jewels."
We finished up the evening by meeting our daughter and son-in-law at Bacchus for our traditional post-opera pizza and Guinness. A lovely evening overall.
