ballet.

I'm going to see Black Swan tonight. 

a bit excited.




I support the careers of everyone's favorite girl next door method thespian and girl next door sultry quirk, Portman and Kunis, respectively.

Tumblr'd about it over ego collatis virbus

I even intend to read Apollo's Angels: A History of Ballet by Jennifer Homan's.
I did my Junior thesis in high school on "Modern Beauty/Sartorialism (1700-Present) and Cultural Identity."
In retrospect it was a rather basic thesis, but at the time I thought I was doing something...
eh, twas 14.
I say that to state that this book is essentially my thesis + some
B A L L E R I N A S.


...and some insight to aristocracy of yore,
...and an anecdote about Louis XIV.

We all know how  I enjoy a Marie Antoinette reference
thank you Tale of Two Cities
and damn you Sofia Coppola even though her new movie Somewhere piques my interest.  

I dig how this was the inspiration for this photo. 
a Marie Antoinette kind of swag. 
via me via ego collatis viribus
