The Nutcracker Ballet is a holiday classic. Hundreds of Nutcracker ballets now dominate America’s Decembers. Act One centers on a little girl named Marie, who through the conjuring of her godfather, Herr Drosselmeier, encounters a nutcracker doll who becomes a prince, a Christmas tree that grows like Jack’s beanstalk, toy soldiers battling mice, and a blizzard. Act Two alights in the Land of Sweets, where the Sugarplum Fairy reigns. An invitation to the Nutcracker Ballet is very special. Dressing up is appropriate. For an afternoon performance you can go dressy like a velvet dress or something less dressy like black pants and a ilk top. Women love casual today so don’t be surprised if you see some everyday attire on some of the audience. For an evening performance you can go over the top dressy if you want. Some ballet goers will be in cocktail dresses or floor length dresses.

Holiday Clothing Tips
It’s holiday party time! What to wear to those holiday festivities does not have to be a problem. Before you venture out to shop look in your closet. You might find the holiday clothing you need without spending a dime.
What hemline length is in style for holiday parties?
The hemline length that is the most flattering on most women is mid knee, just above or just below the knee. The hem length in style for holiday parties is the one that is most flattering on you. The perfect hemline for anyone depends on their height, weight and age and can be determined by checking the mirror. In general short women look better in mid-knee or just above the knee-length hemlines and tall women look great in longer length mid calf or ankle length hemlines. When wearing skirts or dresses with hemlines above the knee be sure your knees look good or wear dark stockings or tights. Also if you are older than 40 avoid hemlines that are too short to look chic. Tip: If your legs are not attractive avoid anything that attracts attention to them. Opt for pants!
