Setting the Mood: Ballet Rehearsal

By |January 30th, 2012|Setting the Mood|

There are so many reasons to love ballet.  I have loved it since my very class when I was three years old.  I love the music.  I love the quiet elegance.  And I most certainly love the wardrobe.  There’s a reason I’m drawn towards soft blushes, and cascading fabrics.  It’s a classic case of “chicken or the egg” though.  Do I love tulle because I love ballet or do I love ballet because I love tulle?  And does it really matter anyway?

Whether you’ve thought about it or not, ballet and fashion are based upon the same principle.  Both are all about creating lines.  Ballet with your body, fashion with fabric.

You need a little more than a perfect top knot to channel your inner prima ballerina though.  Soft shades of peach (ballet pink), black and white.  Delicate fabrics like tulle and chiffon.  And every ballerina needs the perfect pair of shoes.
