And the theater dress is... the Monochromatic Corset Dress from Anthropologie! The other two dresses I had picked were sold out/looked weird, so this one went home with me! It fit like a glove and was so fun and flirty! I owe my inspiration of pairing this little frock with red tights to the lovely goldenmeans, who has posted about the dress ages ago and mentioned how stunning it would look with crimson-hued tights. And how right she was!
The only issue I had was that by the end of the night, the plastic boning started poking out through the top of the dress. It wasn't visible or anything except to me, but it made for some pokey-scratchy uncomfortable-ness. I'm thinking of sanding down the exposed part so that I won't have to worry about it in the future. Anyone else who has this dress encounter this problem?

I decided at the last minute to change into flats because I thought it fit the "cutesy" vibe of the dress more. That and I was running late, so I knew I'd be doing a bit of sprinting, which is something I have yet to master in heels.
