Once Upon A Time: The Sleeping Beauty

The King and Queen invited distinguished guests from all over the land to attend the baby’s christening. Among the guests were a number of powerful fairies, all of […] Read more…

Holiday Gifts- Lingerie Inspired by The Nutcracker

Yes, I staged yesterday’s Sugar Plum Fairy editorial mostly so I could say “Kingdom of Sweets” multiple times in all seriousness. Also, y’all, apparently it’s cool among adult dancers to roll their eyes and go “oh, the Nutcracker, I’m so sick of the Nutcracker”, and I’m sorry but NOPE. The Nutcracker is awesome.

Once Upon a Time: The Nutcracker

Once upon a time, on Christmas Eve, a young girl named Clara waited eagerly with her younger brother Fritz for the their family’s Christmas party.

Inspired by yesterday’s second installment of the ballet-themed holiday editorials, here are some of my picks for beautiful white lingerie and loungewear.

Once Upon a Time: Giselle

Once upon a time a young woman lived with her mother in a small village. A hunter lived nearby and loved her, but the young woman lost her heart to a stranger, a peasant named Loys.

Once Upon a Time: Swan Lake

Some of y’all know this, but I love ballet. I love it to a borderline obsessive degree. If my body had been on board with my dreams it’s what I’d want to be doing with my life.  One of the things I love most about lingerie is that it can be a way to express […] Read more…

Sweet Nothing Du Jour: 12/24/12

I frickin love the Nutcracker.  And I love watching great artists work.  And I’ve never seen this choreography before, and I love it, because she just so totally looks like a frickin Sugar Plum Fairy.  And I love both of the repetiteurs, because they are awesome and slightly adorable.  So here’s the Royal Ballet in […] Read more…

Sweet Nothing Du Jour: 6/25/12

This will appeal to about three of my readers. You know who you are. Someone at the Royal Ballet is awesome at social media. Earlier this year they did a live broadcast of the entirety of one of their company classes. Did I stay up until 2:00 a.m. watching the whole thing? Yes. Of course […] Read more…
