Glissade. Literally, to glide.

I always wanted to be a ballerina. Who didn't, right? Maybe I really could have been one though since I'm tall, wii fit says my balance is good, and my feet naturally want do most of these all the time.
I kinda felt like a ballerina today with my bun, dress, and shoes. Having said that, I'm sure a real ballerina would laugh at me. I'm sure even a casual ballet dancer would laugh at me. :)
And yes, I did wikipedia (verb) a glossary of ballet terms and chose Glissade as the most pleasing one. What a lovely word!

I love this dress but I don't really do anything that would require me to wear a super super super mini sequin dress so I tried to play it down with a messy bun, utility jacket, and shorts underneath. It was still a little over the top (OTT) for my daily life. Oh well! :)








(Dress- c/o iwearsin, Army jacket- Thrifted, Coat- Ruffian for anthro, Maryjanes- Asos, Clutch- gift from Mom, Lace shorts- c/o Urban 1972)

Well, I'm off to my last day at Fashion Market. Thank God!
Then I get to spend much needed family time!
Have a great day lovely people.

  39. i also like how your choice of the word "glissade" reminds us of "glitter", because you sure are glimmering!

  56. what perfectly simple maryjanes. It seems very difficult these days to find shoes that are basic, not statement shoes. You have very pretty hands and nails.
