The Ballerina Effect

There's something magical about ballerinas, isn't there? They're graceful, a dance work of art. I just adore the entire look. They're as girly as you can get. I used to be a ballerina for 3 whole years from age 5-8. I had my tutu, my pink tights, my fabulous bodysuit. I think my mother enrolling me as a child for ballet has given me a lifetime of flexibility because I can still stretch better than other people even if I fall off my exercise routine.

  1. I love your idea of sporting the ballerina look everyday! I would totally wear the flowy skirt, but with heels coz I'm very short.lol. I especially love the bracelet and I always love that you include the right nail-polish!

  2. You know I love my nail polishes ;)

  3. I love the ballerina look! Maybe it is because I went to ballet for 10 years... but still love the gorgeous skirts and balletshoes :-)

  4. it's such a fun girly thing to do, it would liven up any outfit.

  5. I've always loved the girly chic a ballet-inspired item brings to an outfit. :)
