I'm having a [matzoh] ball (a belated Passover outfit post)

For those who don't know, I'm in a workshop production of an original musical, called Moses Man, that's running through next weekend here in Rochester.  Being a part of an original musical, especially one that's still in its infancy, is way more exhausting than being in an already-established show (and can be even more rewarding, if it's a success), and amidst all the craziness that happened over the past week, I forgot to post pictures of the outfit I wore for our Passover seder.  It was Steven's first Passover, and we headed over to my grandparents' for the evening.  I barely ate during the day (dumb dumb dumb decision) and instead, I thought of my grandma's delicious apricot chicken, beef brisket and roasted potatoes.  When we arrived, I stuffed myself silly and then wanted to die.  I did the thing I always tell myself not to do... but live and learn, I guess!

I thought this dress was perfect for spring (even though it's still not very spring-like here), and it's by one of my favorite designers, Nishe.  Even the NAME of the dress (when it was sold on ModCloth) was perfect for me; how could I ever pass up a beautiful fit-and-flare quirky dress called the "Children's Theatre Director Dress?"

Outfit Details:
Children's Theater Director Dress: ModCloth (no longer available)
White cardigan: dELiA*s
Nude heels: DSW (2 years ago)
Glimmer with the Family Coat: ModCloth (no longer available)

I love the boiled wool pockets and hem!  This dress also comes with a neat collar (it's separate, which I like, since they give you a choice of whether to wear it or not) - but it looked too costume-y (a rare phenomenon, for me!), so I opted not to wear it.

Now that both Passover and Easter are behind us, I am that much more desperate for spring to arrive!  It snowed a bunch yesterday (though none of it stuck, really), but it's apparently supposed to warm up this weekend, thank goodness!  :)

I have the day off today, so I'm going to be cleaning and doing some things I've been putting off.  For instance, I'm trying to get together a BUNCH of my clothes to sell; I need to make room in my closet and put some money in my pocket!  I've been working on that a little bit, but I hope to make more progress in the coming weeks.  I'm thinking of creating my store with storenvy, since that seems to be a place where a lot of bloggers have shops set up or "shop my closet" storefronts.  Thoughts?

Have a wonderful Wednesday!

  1. Really cute!!! Break a leg with your production!
    ModCloth always wins my heart with their witty clothing names, too...


  2. I am loving the dress! There's just something about that peachy color... Really like the coat with fur, beautiful coat.
    I can believe it snowed yesterday, our weather is getting hotter, which i'm afraid will be in 100s soon. I like 70s right now, really enjoying it.

  3. Such a sweet dress!

  8. That dress is adorable!

    And I just opened my store envy! I made it awhile ago, but was too lazy to open it. Haven't sold anything (obviously, just opened it today), but I know a lot of people that have had good experiences. I think the important thing is to keep your prices on the lower end.
