Trendspotting: Ballet Inspired

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

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:

Gorgeous Grown-Up Ballet Dress


"Ballerina" Fine Art Photograph

Studded Ballet Slippers

Ballerina Note Cards

Vintage Dress in Ballet Slipper Pink

Dancing Fairy Cookies

Shabby Ballerina Framed Art

Lots of fun stuff…




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

  2. LOVE those ballet slippers! I’m adoring all the ballet inspired things. Reminds me of all my years of ballet class…I miss it!

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

  4. 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!

  5. Beautiful ballerina items, especially the grown up ballet dress! I so love etsy. There’s so much creativity there!

  6. Thank you very much for including us in your lovely ballet-inspired post! It definitely brings back memories of ballet class as a child!

  7. 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!
