Off To The Ballet


The Russian Ballet came to a town near us recently to perform Swan Lake.  Nanny bought tickets.


 
This fabulous 1950's dress was on the Ooh Lala Facebook Vintage sell site and a bargain at only $30. But it had an impossibly tiny waist, but it just happened to be Miss 11's size waist.

The bright orange Ed Hardy watch is a little clashy, but she's a tomboy at heart.
 
 
50's Dress: Facebook
Shoes: Miss L Fire
 
 
 
Miss 4 went all ballerina, of course.  This one is definitely NOT a tomboy.
 
Tutu, Stockings and Slippers: eBay
Hair Flower: Dynamite-darlin, eBay
Nail Polish: Pretty Serious Mummy Mash ( a perfect color for ballerinas)

  1. Awww, both of your little angels look so beautiful. I adore the fact that your eldest daughter enjoys wearing vintage at such a young age. Three cheers for the next generation of vintageistas! :)

  2. Did you enjoy the perfomance? It's funny that I have never been in Bolshoi theatre in Moscow, although I'm working near it)

  5. Your girls are so, so gorgeous! They are so lucky to have such a pretty well dressed mum to inspire their developing style :)
    I am completely and utterly jealous that you're going to see Swan Lake! When I was in Russia this year I couldn't get tickets to the ballet in Moscow or in St Petersburg because they were completely booked out everywhere, so I can only imagine how incredible the performance will be!

    1. Oh no! They are currently touring Australia so do a Google search and see if they are coming to a town near you. The girls loved it. Good luck!

  7. OH they are so cute, I've gotten my 5 year old into vintage too, she loves to wear the old dresses I find her at the resale shops.

  8. That dress looks perfect on Miss 11... I suspect it was really for someone her age, and not for the world's tiniest grown woman. The ballet sounds fantastic!
