dancing feet

How gorgeous is this Swan Lake costume from 1934? My feet are still sore from dance lessons tonight -- lessons after a two month hiatus. It didn't help that I was breaking in a new pair of ballroom shoes that left my heels and toes aching with every step!

I have never been to a ballet production, but I love the graceful dancers and the gorgeous fluffy tutus and costumes. My first real exposure to ballet was the movie Black Swan which featured the most amazing stage and costumes. Made me want to see one in real life! Even my boyfriend took ballet lessons when he was a kid. I think I'm too old and out of shape to even try (maybe one day eventually). Ballroom and swing dance are more my style anyways.

motivate me

Hi all - it's been about a month since I last posted, but I haven't been away from the internet at all. My Tumblr has been a bit more regular with loads of images of fashion and art. But I haven't had the motivation to regularly post on my little blog at all! I've been inspired by so many blogs and people that I guess it feels a bit intimidating to even really try (I know, not a good reason!). I just wanted to thank everyone for having such wonderful photos and writing that distracts me from me. 

Hopefully back?
