At the Ballet

I've been dancing ballet for a few years now, and I love it (most of the time). I, like many little girls, dreamed of soaring across the stage gracefully, with a gorgeous tutu resting on my frame. I realize that ballet is about more than that, but that dream still lives in me.

This dream has recently carried over into my fashion choices. I don't have the privilege of shopping frequently, but when I do, I'm drawn to pretty, delicate details. Slippers and tutus and lace, oh my!

No Jacket Required

Okay, I was a little chilly, but it wasn't nearly as brutal as the last photoshoot! You can't really see my face in any of these, because the sun was setting right in my line of vision. Oh well, it's about the clothes, anyway.

I'm beginning to grow tired of my wardrobe. It has so much red in it, and there is very little to wear in the warmer months. Luckily, I won a Lulu's Dress Giveaway through Rhiannon at, and it will be perfect for spring! I will be sure to provide you all with photographic evidence of its glory.

Remember way back in December how I promised to show you the oxfords I got for Christmas! Yeah, that would be them. :)

Spring Flick: Jane Eyre

The release date of the newest film adaptation of Jane Eyre is drawing nearer and nearer. I have about as much patience as a fruit fly has strength, so you can imagine how difficult the wait has been to endure. Pardon the formality in my writing, by the way -I just finished doing a project for school. I suppose it does fit with the time period of the film, though. Anyway, TANGENTS! Here are some stills.

Take that in, folks. It's the sweet sex appeal of Michael Fassbender as Edward Rochester.

I'm quite the sucker for period pieces, and especially the costumes. While the wardrobe in Jane Eyre will be less decadent than Marie Antoinette was, I look forward to a visual feast that will hopefully emphasize the story.

I know that past interpretations of Jane Eyre have been light and lulling, so I am happily anticipating a more dark, dramatic, intense portrayal of Charlotte Bronte's novel. The movie hits theatres this Friday -cue high-pitched screeches of joy!
