Ballerina Wannabe

Along with my lack of athletic ability came a lack of hand-eye coordination, grace, and poise; basically everything you need to be a ballerina. I have always admired dancers and their effortless movements that caress the black mat of a stage. I love the sound delicate pointe shoes make on the scuffed floor, the sleek bun that wisps away stray hair that may detract fervent ballerina concentration, and the tutus. Oh, the TUTUS! I had my time to shine as a dancer, but a mere babe in my "Big Bird"-like feathery costume. It just wasn't quite the same as the delicate lace protruding starkly from a dancer's tiny waist. I digress. What I'm trying to get across is that I am determined to find a tutu acceptable to wear in public. If Carrie Bradshaw can do it, so can I.

I promise I will wear a bra with my tutu ensemble.
