La Danse

I’m really excited to be sharing these photos! Megan and I came together via our mutual girly love for ballet (did you know I danced for ten years?) and decided to outfit two lovely ladies in the finest from our respective shops, spending an afternoon in a dance studio, shooting photos and marveling over the surprising awesomeness of a cut-up pair of sweatpants. Sure, ballet stuff is undeniably a trend right now, but these images still come from within our frilly pink hearts. I also have to mention that when I got home I found my knees covered in bruises (from shooting), and got an immediate “BLACK SWAN!” accusation from dalas.

    These are very beautiful, the lighting, the poses, how well chosen the clothes are, I love one of the models faces, it’s so expressive, I think it’s the one called Meredith.

    ohhh this takes me back. I love so many of the clothing items, but it’s funny I can tell they aren’t really dancers! I guess that’s just how it is when I was one myself. The cutout dress is my favorite and I love the contrast/tone of all the photographs!
