I opted for a vintage look with a Jasmine Guiness dress that hasn't seen the light of day since last summer, and which I'd frankly forgotten about until I opened my wardrobe looking for something summery, and some new shoes I got from eBay this week. Don't you just love them?

Anyway, I met up with my group of friends, and I'd not seen some of them in a while as they were people I used to work with, and it was so lovely to catch up. Then we set off over to Leamington, and enjoyed a delicious pizza before the show started. Some of the group had seen Mrs. R in shows before, I hadn't and I have to say I was totally blown away. Before I went to the show I didn't actually know what Thoroughly Modern Millie was (shame on me) but it's set in 1920s New York, and Millie comes from a small town in Kansas seeking a rich boss she can make into her husband. It's full of back to back songs, gorgeous 1920s frocks and is a really fun and lighthearted tale that all the family can enjoy, seriously there were all age groups from very young up to quite elderly.
Back to Mrs. R though, she was phenomenal, seriously her voice and the dancing and everything... I mean the whole cast were fantastic, and I had great fun selecting which were my favourite 1920s frocks, but Millie was astounding, and I can't wait to go to another show that she's in. After the show we met up with her for a quick drink in a local pub, before heading back to Coventry having had a wonderful evening out.
Thoroughly Modern Millie is only on until tomorrow night at the Spa Centre in Leamington, if there are any tickets and you are free I'd really recommend going along.
