Opera di Peroni


top – Asos
jean – Zara (last worn here)
sandal – Zara (last worn
clutch –
watch – Calvin Klein

Peroni really know how to charm this lady.  Another night spent at The Old Fruitmarket, this time for a modern imagining of classic Italian opera – Opera di Peroni.

After the last Peroni event I had a suspicion that it might be a good night and I was not wrong – a feast for all the senses.  The husband and I would freely admit to being pretty clueless about opera but there was drama (plate smashing tantrums) and romance and beer swilling Italians running amok atop the bar with the most incredible and beautiful voices.  Loved it.

      I must confess I actually saw it on another blog! A favourite of mine, Gary pepper Vintage. There weren’t too many sizes left in the sale when I bought it and now they are completely gone, sorry!

    love the jeans!


    • Thankfifi Posted 27 Aug at 8:11 pm

      I remember I couldn’t decide whether to buy them or not at the time but I wear them ALL the time – so glad I did and wish they would bring them out again so I could buy a back-up pair!

    You look amazing and I love your pictures.. Black suits you!


    • Thankfifi Posted 27 Aug at 10:16 pm

      thanks so much nina – maybe I should wear black more often! I sense with winter creeping closer I probably will be…

      thanks so much – what a lovely comment (of course I’d have to give ‘most’ of the photography credit to the husband though…)
