I can still remember my 2nd grade ballet teacher crying out directions - first position, tendu, watch your posture! Going through the requisite girly rite of passage of ballet lessons and having the dream of becoming a sugar plum fairy in the Christmas performance of the Nutcracker had it's merits (putting on that pink leotard, skirt, and slippers and entering that studio was like entering a world of gracefulness and beauty) and downfalls (sometimes, it's nice to have more than one hobby), but at times I wish that my ballet days aren't behind me. Maybe I'll go back to it one day, but for now, all I can do is slip on a piece of fashion inspired ballet from time to time.
On a side note - the shoes are probably the most awesome thing in the world. They're chunky sandals with, wait for it... BUILT IN ROLLERBLADES. Yup. Pure awesome.
