the romeo & juliet masquerade ball

In 2011, I got myself all gussied up to attend the Opening Night Gala of New York City Center. This year, and this past Thursday evening, I prepped in a similarly fancy way to join the New York City Ballet's young patrons at the R + J Masquerade Ball; fittingly, after watching a spectacular ballet performance.
To my left would be the lovely reason why Elaine and I were invited. C works for the ballet and often encourages fabulous opportunities to feel highbrow cultured. 
Of course, at the end of the day, as much as I thoroughly appreciate the performing arts (and rubbing elbows with New York City's trust funded finest), I'm just me. Following our magical evening of masqueraded glamour, Elaine and I ventured farther uptown for a couple of beers at more than one fratty bar. I know what you're thinking: We are some seriously classy ladies. I would have to agree ;).
