i was invited last week to attend another performance of ‘3 by dove’ by pacific northwest ballet, and also the co-ordinating backstage pass event appropriately titled ‘when doves fly’. if you don’t know about backstage pass… they’re a group of 20-40 somethings who promote interest in the ballet by selling a selection of tickets from the season and then hosting events either before or after the performance.  it’s a non-intimidating way to enjoy the ballet (when you don’t know anything about the ballet) and who doesn’t like to mingle or have a cocktail when you’re already out.

this event was one of their bigger ones of the year, and was great for style watching, people watching, and of course, sneaking around backstage…

above dancers chal and lucien- she’s wearing a vest that she said he found for her (and louboutins?), and he’s got a pair of carole mcklellan leather pants.

that jersey dress looked so comfortable and still completely chic (plus, who doesn’t love pockets in a dress?)

erin’s deep back v sweater was perfect on her, and the vintage escada purse in ‘sparkle’ accessorizes her all-black well

patrick and jeff- the second time i’ve seen white deck shoes in a week… trend alert?
