A Tulle Gown Worthy of Wagner & Strauss


Isn’t this dress just fabulous?

I wore this dress to the opera in Austin on Saturday night, I felt like a pretty pretty princess all night long. The lace, the tulle – it was just absolute perfection.

This season, for their first performance, the Austin Opera decided to do a concert of Wagner and Strauss (to which I wore this tulle gown). Two of my favorite pieces from the evening were a compilation from Der Rosenkavalier and the ending aria from Salome (one of my favorite operas!). After the opera, we had drinks on the terrace and then dinner on the stage (such fun!).

The night really set me in the right mindset for my upcoming trip to New York (this Wednesday!!), in which I’ll be seeing three operas in four days (holy cow). Super stoked for that. Be sure to follow me on Instagram and Snapchat (user @akkushner) to keep up with my travels!
