Cherry bomb

cherry dress

I think a good cherry print is imperative. Which makes it sort of insane that I never acquired a cherry print dress until very recently (and now I own two!). I love this Beverly style dress from Heart of Haute, and I got this dress as a lovely surprise in the mail! It's an awesome work-appropriate dress that works just as well for a night out. I opted not to wear it with a petticoat here for a more casual look, but this silhouette looks even better with one. I wore this dress to the Rochester Music Hall of Fame induction ceremony last month (my dad played in the house band for the fourth year in a row), and I thought it was a really fun choice. I wish I had a cherry brooch to go with it, but at least I have the awesome cherry pie ring that Kate made for me!

Today's post is on the short side, but for good reason: for the next three weeks, I actually get to feel like a "real" actor. I'm in a workshop of a musical I was involved with a couple of years ago, and this time it's a mix of local and Equity actors (meaning union actors) from New York – which in plain speak means that I feel like a professional who gets to earn an actual weekly salary during this process. It also means that I'm already really tired (and it's only day 2!); I haven't had an opportunity to earn a living wage solely from performing since before I started my blog, and I sort of forgot how much energy it takes. It's a great opportunity and a lot of fun, but I'm just glad I have a backlog of photos right now!

  1. Love the pattern. Fabulous as always :)


  2. Loving the cherries!!! Congrats on your paying gig as well :)

  3. So happy for you!! That sounds so exciting. Hope you get all rested up!

    I'm surprised you didn't own cherry print in a dress before lol

  4. That's brilliant about the pro work! I rarely get any paid gigs now or theatre work, tis sad x

  5. Would you believe it (I scarcely can myself), I don't own a single cherry print dress either. How that's possible is beyond me, but it is. I do have a couple of fun cherry print tops and some cherry jewelry, but that's it. I need to remedy that one of these days for sure!

    I love your dress! It's so charming, classic and cute!
