Trendspotting: Ballet Inspired

Hey has anyone seen the Black Swan movie yet? I did.

BlackSwan
I admit I don't get out much. So I thought this was going to be a pretty movie about ballet dancers.

It's sort of more complicated than that. 

But the "ballet" part– the dancing and costumes are beautiful. So I was inspired see what ballet-inspired items I could find on etsy:

Balletdress

Balletslippersstudded

Balletnotecards

Balletvintagedress

Balletcookies
Dancing Fairy Cookies

Balletart
Shabby Ballerina Framed Art

Lots of fun stuff…

    Didn’t we all want to be ballerinas when we were little?! This is a lovely roundup!

    Agreed! I’ve definitely been noticing this sweet trend too. Although I’ve heard that movie is not so sweet…

    Did you enjoy it? I heard it was a bit dark (and dare I say sexual?) but I’d still like to see it.
    You found some great stuff on etsy! I have to stay away from there, I could easily drop a wad of cash if I let myself.
    Hope you had a wonderful Christmas!

    So many pretty ballet things…and not freaky at all like The Black Swan. ;-)
    I’ll be rooting for Natalie at the Oscars next week!
