Something Wicked This Way Comes

Years ago, I read Gregory Maguire's Wicked and fell in love with the fanciful story. Quite the surprise, considering I was never a huge fan of The Wizard of Oz - much to my mother's dismay, I had always hit the fast-forward button through Dorothy's rendition of "Somewhere Over the Rainbow." I had the unexpected opportunity to see the musical last week. It was an enchanted night, from the witch's hats dancing across the lobby ceiling to the performance itself.

Outfit Notes: Dress-Diane von Furstenberg; Jacket-Banana Republic; Earrings-Forever21; Watch-New York & Co.

  3. Jessica, you looked so chic for your "Wicked" night out! :) I knew you would love it! Such an epic musical! I was fortunate enough to see Idina Menzel play Elphaba, and it was a performance that I'll never forget!

  18. Welcome to the cult!

    A friend dragged me to see this show last year and, despite all my efforts, I loved it. She had seen it eight times before and vouched for its appeal. She was right; I was wrong. Glad you had the chance to enjoy it.
