Glitter Cat Sweatshirt

Sorry for my disappearance lately! It’s been a busy couple of weeks…

A few weekends ago I went to see the PIFA finale, which was pretty amazing. Imagine playing in a band 100 feet in the air…or swinging around on a trapeze, dangling over thousands of people. The performers, La Compagnie Transe Express, reminded me a lot of Cirque Du Soleil. Excellent costumes, fire, and rushing through the crowd seemingly randomly shouting various things in a mixture of French and oddly flourished English made it even more fun.

On Mother’s Day, my mom and I went to see Curtis Opera Theater’s production of Indomeneo. Joshua Stewart and Kirsten MacKinnon really stood out. Very strong singers and great actors, I found myself looking forward to seeing what they’d do next. Kirsten brought the house down in her final scene – she goes mad after Idamante rejects her for Ilia, ripping her earrings and string of pearls off and dashing them to the ground, all the while singing with so much fervor that her outrage was quite believable. The crowd went wild at curtain call, my arms were hurting by the end with all the clapping.

I think this sweatshirt pretty much speaks for itself …I was pretty excited when I found it (giant glitter cats?? yes!), although now I can’t remember where I got it from. I wore this outfit to a friend’s birthday party a little while ago. I kept the rest of the outfit pretty basic, so as not to detract from the real stars of the show. Looking back, I should have definitely worn different shoes, the black is way too stark for the rest of the outfit. Good thing I just picked up a pair of silver flats. 😀
