a new leo

Standard

The ballet fairy I wished about never came knocking on my door so I decided since this Fridays paycheck brings a bonus, I could justify getting myself this leotard in black.

At my old ballet company we had a leotard very similar to this one except it had a cute little bow in the front.  I LOVED this leotard.  I felt like the best ballerina ever.  I bet I’ll feel just as special in this new one.  In 3-7 business days I’ll let you know!

Looking the part is half the battle so now that I have new pointe shoes and my leotard is on its way, I’m halfway there! Now I just have to work on that thing called grace.

Aren't they pretty?

I found the perfect pair of pointe shoes this weekend.  At least I think I did.  We’ll know next week  after payday and a couple classes to see if they really are perfect. 

They are, Capezio’s “Glissé Pro” G115 size 7.5 WW.  It was definitely time to start searching for a new pair.  The ones I’m currently on are 5 years old and I have a blister the size of a nickel on my big toe in result of them being too broken in.  When pointe shoes are too broken in it becomes dangerous.  My ankles are still trying to gain the strength they used to have and falling off “en pointe” isn’t anything I’m looking forward too.   

I’m really looking forward to a shiny new pair of pointe shoes!  While I’m at it, there is this leotard I’ve been eyeing for a couple months.  If there is a ballet fairy out there, I would like it in black and in a size M or L please :)  follow this link to the #1076 by Danskin New York City Ballet Dress.
