Wanna see some ballet? Let's go!

Okay, I did not go to Helsinki bit more than week ago to see Le Corsaire (by Bolshoi) in a movie theatre. Would have wanted to, though... But luckily there are some wonderful people in this world, for example this certain blogger. I sincerely urge you to visit his page. To see the Corsaire, for example.

In 1,5 weeks I'm going to see some ballet LIVE. On stage. In Helsinki. It'll be the farewell performance of our National Ballet's biggest star (at the moment), Minna Tervamäki. Got a very nice place, too, from the 1st balcony, 1st row, in the middle. And of course I'm trying to figure out what to wear. I want it to be something at least a little bit festive, special even. And as I've lately found polyvore.com, I put together a fun outfit - got the inspiration from birds (scarlet macaw, to be exact). Here it is. (p.s. The ballet is going to be La Bayadere.)

Inspiration - Ara Macao


I'm soooooo waiting for Friday, have to get back to class. Have to. Really. And Saturday.


  1. That sounds like a really special performance of La Bayadere you will be attending and I must confess I am a little envious, that aside I hope you have a wonderful evening, you must tell us about how good it was :-)
    Loving your outfit idea too :-)
    Finally I must thank you for recommending my blog and videos, THANK YOU:-)
    Have a wonderful evening, day, week and month and once again Thank You :-)

    1. Hi! I'll be sure to write about Bayadere, there are high expectations... At least I have :D It's just too bad our ballet never films any of their performances, only those tiny little clips for youtube. It does take loads of money, but there would be audience enough to buy/see it.

      And finally, you're very welcome! :)

  2. Oh how I'd love to see Minna Tervamäki's fairwell performance! I don't like fairwells though - too emotional! Perhaps it's for the best I'm not there with my kleenex! Enjoy!

    P.S. Love the outfit!

    1. Hello Iina - I think there'll be some kleenex people anyway, you would fit right in :D
