Pointe The Way

Despite the fact that many films, books and TV shows have told us that being a ballerina is a grueling, almost masochistic activity, there’s something about tutus and pointe shoes that still attracts little girls – and inspires adults as well. When rounding up a few of my current covets for the month, I quickly realized that I have a bit of a ballerina style fetish, and thought it’d be a fun theme to run by you. Without further ado…

On PointeIvory Tulle Skirt – $78 @ Kellie Falconer Design So I actually ordered a mint green tulle skirt from another designer this month…pending how that goes, this frothy beauty (with shipping included) is next on my hit list. Chic, classic, feminine, timeless and surprisingly versatile – what more can you ask for?

Element Ballet Conditioning – $5.99 @ Amazon.ca – If you’ve ever wanted to get the lean, toned frame of a dancer, barre conditioning is a great place to start. Targeting your core and legs, these body weight training sessions mix pilates with the elegant gracefulness of a dancer.

Naples Top – $44 @ Capezio – Whether you’re an actual dancer or you just attend the odd drop-in barre class, you can definitely shop at a real dancer’s store to pick up the essentials. From leotards to leggings, Capezio has got it all – but I adore this draped, uber cuddly grey sweater (also available in a soft peachy pink).

Ballet Top – $32 @ American Eagle – I searched to no end to find the low scoop neck style top I wanted to go with my tulle skirt, but this is about as close as I could find at the moment. Made in Italy, this elegant cropped top will look splendid with a gorgeous skirt or raggedy denim cutoffs alike.

Jessica Simpson Mandalaye Square Toe Flats – $92 @ Dillard’s – Available in three colours, these ballet-inspired (and let’s be frank, Chloe rip-off) flats are a great way to add a little bit of dancer’s grace to your everyday wardrobe. Love the adorable ankle criss-cross strap!

Tie Waist Sweater – $29 @ Jacob – This one you better snap up fast if you’re interested in it; Jacob is basically sold out of this sweater online. Available in black, white, and pink, it channels a dancer’s warmup wardrobe but would look equally svelte with a fitted pencil skirt. Oo la la!

Now every good dancer (or dance wannabe) knows that it’s all about taking care of yourself. So why not take care of getting another bonus entry into my Skincando giveaway? Tell me in the comments below: which of these beautiful ballet-inspired picks that are on my wish list would also make your wish list?
