Pointe shoes are expensive.
I've worn Grishkos since I was twelve and they've always hovered around $70.
So when I stumbled upon these brand new babies in my closet I about sang hallelujah.
(How did I forget I bought them?)
I then proceeded to 'break them in' by walking around the house in them
(because that's what dancers do)
and then I busted out the camera and tripod and decided to take a few photos.
|Apparently, pointe shoes bring out the Sasha Fierce in me.|
Sorry for such the intense gaze.
I won this Shabby Apple dress a while ago but had never worn it so
if it looks like it's been folded and shipped for a long time it's because it has.
I almost didn't post these photos because of the wrinkles.
But the thought of ironing makes me uncomfortable so I just went for it.
I love unearthing forgotten (and expensive) treasures.
I've decided that outfit posts are much more interesting with pointe shoes.
Well, for me at least.
BUT if I were to style this dress with normal people shoes then I would choose a pair of bright blue flats with a nice contrasting stitching on it.
