Pretty Picture Post: Always Dreaming

Hey Everyone,
I thought it was time for another pretty picture post. I started Adult "Ballet" classes on Thursday. I love to dance and it has been a while since. I am so the opposite of flexible right now, so hopefully that will soon change. I was a little worried about doing Ballet because I am so pigeon toed. I do love ballet, but technically I am a mess, so I was hoping for contemporary or tap or jazz or something instead. Turns out though, that this class is more of a ballet exercises mixed with jazz stretches and jazz steps class. Which is probably perfect for me as far as improving flexibility goes. 

I guess what started this was that I did some rockabilly dance classes a couple of weeks ago and it was really fun. Would have been more fun if I had a dance partner, but it was fun regardless. It also reminded me how unfit I was. I have a long list of dance styles I would like to learn including Burlesque (the classy kind), Broadway and The Charleston, but I figure if we can only get 4 people to an adult ballet dance class than I should maybe not hold my breath for a chance to learn one of these styles. I would also like to learn a lot of partner dances like the Jive or the Tango. A girl can dream...

So in this picture post, I included a few dance pictures, some sewing pattern pictures and some modern pictures that are disguised as vintage. I am going through a twenties and thirties obsession at the moment. I love the blues and greens and the monochromes. I especially love the first sewing pattern because it's so mermaid-y. I really wish I could sew, because there are so many pretty thirties patterns out there... I am in the process of making a Pinterest board dedicated to vintage sewing patterns...

That is so fabulously cool, dear Natalie!!! Please think of me every now and then while you're at ballet class. I used to love so much (I never took ballet, but I did do tap, jazz, swing, and a little bit of Irish dance and was on my high school dance troupe), but haven't been able to for many years now because of my health. I wish I could still - I'd sign up for adult dance classes in a heartbeat. Oh well, at least I can still enjoy watching others do it and also delight and find inspiration in fabulous vintage photos like the ones you posted here in this lovely entry.

I hope you have a blast at ballet!

♥ Jessica
