A Night at the Opera // Outfit

Black Cut Out Back Dress - Fashion Union

Hey everyone! Recently I went to see Tosca the opera with my family and I wanted to do a little OOTN post (don't worry the makeup post is coming right after).

Since moving to Europe I didn't think that I would have to dress up nicely as I'm in medical school, but when a family friend asked if we wanted to go to the opera I chose to wear this black Fashion Union dress I got for Christmas and a pair of mary jane heels I got from this random store in the mall (helpful, I know) 

I also wore it with tights because it's freeezzzziinnnngggggg and snowing so basically I ended up with an all black outfit (oops…)

I got the dress in a size 10 because I'm not quite sure of my UK sizing yet but it's a bit too big for me (I should have gotten an 8) as you can see it poofs out a little too much around my tummy…thats not all me haha it's the dress I promise.

When I first saw the dress, and on the website it looks like it's going to be made out of a satiny material, but in reality it's made out of stretchy (almost neoprene like) material. Think more like a wetsuit so it definitely has some give to it also. And I love the exposed zipper detailing. Lately I've been a fan of anything with an exposed zipper.

Do you like my outfit? Haha sorry for the lighting being weird, it was7 at night so I couldn't necessarily  take the pictures in good light, I did my best. 

I am really loving Fashion Union at the moment though.


  1. Hi, Stephanie, did you order this dress online? if yes, then it is quite courageous, because if you want to buy a dress for special occasions like going to Opera, you would be gutted if wasn't what you expected, but I like it on you, I can't see the material properly but I do get a feeling that it is like satin, doesn't matter after all, you look great in it, besides it beautifully compliments your skin and your hair colour. have a nice week, <3 Zhanna,

  2. I really like this outfit! I'm actually a huge fan of wearing all black x
