The Ballerina Within

When I was a child, my mother faithfully enrolled me in every activity she could think of to find my "hidden talent": soccer, swimming, arts and crafts, tennis, archery, piano, calligraphy, ballet...Unfortunately, I was not the "athletic type," but despite my lack of talent in the rigorous discipline of ballet, I believe that many girls have the ballerina within--that vision of grace, beauty, and fluidity. Even as an adult, I find myself oohing and aahing over clothes that embrace that childhood vision of tutus in pink. Take Fendi's striped pink, gray, and dove gray number and Moschino's silk tiered flounce dress: both inspire the innocence and beauty of a simple ballet recital and the look of pride from a mother's face. $2,410 for the Fendi dress at and $3,390 for the Moschino dress at

Fantastic! I was never too good at ballet, but you make me want to return to it.
