You may have seen my other post about the Opera Garnier, and as I told you in that post, I’m going to show you the outfit I wore at the Opera !
It wasn’t anything particularly transcending, but I liked it anyways.
First, what do you wear to go to the Opera ?
When you go to the Opera in Paris, you “can’t” go dressed as everyday, well you can, but it’s like an untold rule : you should dress at least a bit fancy. You can actually even come in a fabulous evening dress if you like, some people do and it looks awesome !
But if really, you don’t feel confortable and don’t mind a couple of bourgeois looking at you like you were a dirty wipe, you can go dressed casually.
Now the outfit !
I wanted to go dressed nice, but not so fancy, I wanted my outfit to be a bit sober, so I opted for a solid value: the Little Black Dress.
The place was so great I just had to take a picture at the balcony :
– dress : Pull and Bear – jacket : H&M –
Here, that’s me and my mom ! She has her very own style, and I think that’s pretty cool :
(For those who didn’t notice : my mother is Colombian)
I also wore my grandmothers necklace. She passed away a few years ago, and I inherited it.
It’s not a regular necklace though, the coin it holds in the center is a “Louis d’Or”, which is, according to Wikipedia :
” any number of French coins first introduced by Louis XIII in 1640. The name derives from the depiction of the portrait of King Louis on one side of the coin; the French royal coat of arms is on the reverse ”
I thought it would fit perfectly into the rich history atmosphere of the Opera, which moreover has a link with my necklace : they are both related to Louis XVI.
Here is a closer look at the back of it, with the french royal coat arms :
That’s also why wanted the rest of the outfit to be simple, to highlight the necklace and its sentimental and historical value.
And finally, the shoes, I wore the ones I mentioned in my Sales Haul post ! I love the shape and the pattern of the heel, I think that makes them look a bit original.

I hope you liked my outfit, even though it was very simple.
Have you ever went to a place where you had to get all dressed up ?
