Bleach at Topshop

The Pointe This Season

January 23, 2011

Not since my childhood has my life been so ballet mad! I’ve recently seen the film du jour, Black Swan. It is an intense look into one ballerina’s decent into paranoia, and is sure to have a profound affect on you (as it has the fashion industry). Ballet is one of the major trends for […]
