5,6,7,8

A project on Friday required me to research the very prettiest ballet inspired dresses for a drawing. While online- I was distracted my top knots, simple black leotards with deep v's, those amazing studded capezios (you know the ones)... So today I have the urge to dress simply. And stand straighter


I was in dance classes my entire life. Some projects I enjoy more than others. This was one of them.

Wow, I am glad you enjoyed your project! :)
Sometimes I miss dance, which I am sure you do too!

Oh, this is so wonderful! Do you by chance have any photos of you dancing? I'd love to post some on my blog. I have a dream of also doing what you did with framing sketches except doing it with sketches of tutus. It's my next project.

And yes, great minds do think alike!

I have also danced different kind of styles, but there´s nothing like ballet :)

Love the color of those satin shoes--so vintage, timeless and fun. I was a ballet girl too, so I relate!

I love these images. I quit ballet way too young, it's one of those little life regrets I carry.
