Outfit Of The Night: "I was pretty, I was happy, [my zipper broke] the ballet."

Bonus points if you know the Broadway musical to which I refer.  So here's the scoop, I finally found an opportunity to wear this beautifully tailored (seaming details not visible in these images), cotton sateen, $300 Karen Millen dress (that I scored for $88), and the zipper breaks! [insert sad face]

What a bummer; I haven't even worn it outside the house yet, and now I have a zipper repair to deal with.  I guess the silver lining is that it broke before I left the house, thus giving me a chance to perform an outfit switcheroo.  Most of my regular readers know I shop mostly at Target, H&M, Old Navy and Forever21, but when it comes to a night out, I like to take it up a notch.  I switched out the Karen Millen dress for a Trina Turk dress {last seen here}; it worked.  Anyways, here's the original pics.  I saw Atlanta Ballet's Moulin Rouge.

That dress would have been perfect for that performance. To bad the zipper broke. I'm sure you looked equally stunning in your alternate dress.
