I'm thrilled about today's post. You see, the ballet holds a special place in my heart, as it's a huge part of my past. So imagine my excitement when I got nuzzled into my couch yesterday afternoon, blankets perfectly spread over my legs, tootsies nice and warm and I cracked open my new issue of Martha Stewart Weddings to find an entire bridal fashion shoot devoted to the ballet. AND, and, the models are dancers from the American Ballet Theater. Ahhh! I almost yelped out in happiness. So, today my dear readers, I'm sharing these truly amazing photos with you because I'm just cool like that (but, if you enjoy all things weddings, or fashion, or ballet, you might want to run out to get your very own copy of MSW Magazine just for your own collection).
I present to you, an evening at the ballet:
