Come From Away Afternoon

Taking a lap picture of my Playbill is the new Eva Chen pose for me

Andrew and I are new members of SHN, San Francisco's Broadway.  As part of our membership, we receive tickets to every show in a given Broadway season.  Because we are old folks, our tickets are for Sunday matinees, hence the "afternoon" in the title.  This year, I was most excited to watch the musical Come From Away.  

I had only seen the Tony performance of one song from Come From Away, and I couldn't even remember what the song was. After watching the show, I'm sure it was the opening number.  I remember seeing the Tony performance and being really impressed by the song and company. I knew I had to see it live! It was too expensive last time we went to New York (and we spent all our money on the original cast of Dear Evan Hansen) so I could only wait for it to tour and come to California. 

Since I was so looking forward to the show, I had to make sure I served a good enough outfit to match. The show is about a small town in Canada to where all the planes in the air that had U.S. destinations during 9/11 were rerouted when the U.S. airports were closed. What a crazy time. The Canadian hosts were gracious and generous as to be expected, and I thought I would try to get a nice-looking outfit in. I've also been somewhat inspired by Marie Kondo's general niceness and look of a knee length patterned floral skirt with black tights and black shoes. I'm still keeping almost everything I'm wearing in my own personal closet and not my poshmark (yet) except this gold Stuart Weitzman handheld half-oval bag. 

I love a handheld mini bag for a LEWK. They are relatively difficult to use on a daily basis considering you are the opposite of hands-free with this type of bag, but boy do they look chic in photos.  That's why they are perfect for special occasions where you won't really need to be holding your bag around or using your hands, like at a broadway musical.

This bag has a zipper closure and hooks on the side where it looks like a strap would have gone. I haven't tried hooking a chain strap on yet but I might! This bag is big enough to fit my phone, keys, mini snack bag, and reusable bag, which are all things I try to carry around on a daily basis! It's great for dinner or a show or both! The gold is effectively a neutral as well and is muted enough that it won't clash with whatever jewelry you're wearing. It's understated yet still quality as it's by Stuart Weitzman! It's just "vintage" looking enough for me, in that it's still edgy and on trend with the shape and color.
