Shoes of the week

I know this is a fashion blog (trust me--I started it), but it's also about fashion as it relates to my life. Which is why this week's shoes of the week are

Grishko 2007 pointe shoes. They're a bitch to break in (if you get the medium shanks), but I've never danced in anything more flattering.

You won't find a better price than this.

My cousin used to dance. She wants me to start, so she can live through me. Those are nice, though, the good kind. And an awesome price!

They are definitely the good kind--not necessarily recommended for beginning students, but awesome if you demand a lot from your shoes (if, of course, Grishko's fit your feet well ;) )

I don't dance but I am a sucker for ballet shoes, they just look so completely gorgeous.

It's tough, but it's totally gratifying, too. And pointe shoes are lovely, though they don't make your feel look too fabulous once they're off. . . hehe. WORTH IT!

Those make ME want to pick up ballet. God you've got good taste (and skill, if you can use those)!

Aw. . . I hadn't expected such a sweet, warm response for everyone! All my readers are awesome. You're all honorary ballerinas in my heart :)

How funny. I just stumbled upon your blog (I love finding new fashion blogs I haven't seen before) and the Grishkos caught my eye. I use to wear Grishkos back in the day - they made my feet look horrible, but I love how strong and solid they felt. My pointe days are long over, but I wish you all the best!

I am considering taking ballet classes just for the fashion. Is that wrong?

I have worn these for at least six years! I love them, but I always get the soft shank.
