All chalked up

25 May

I spent most of my childhood swinging the uneven bars (I was a gymnast for 11 years), so being covered head-to-toe in chalk is not new to me. However, I never thought this to be an even remotely glamorous look until laying eyes upon this editorial from Vogue China.

I have always thought ballerinas to be beautiful beings…even before the Chanel tutu (video below). They’re tall, skinny, and graceful — ultra- rhythmic fashion models, if you will. I think I’ll get tickets to The Nutcracker this year.

Appreciation for indeed being simply kind as well as for picking out this sort of excellent areas millions of individuals are really desirous to understand about. My personal honest regret for not saying thanks to you earlier.

    I was a gymnast as well, (10 years) and I think the most creative I got with chalk was putting giant hand prints on people’s butts. Thanks for sharing this editorial, its so pretty!

    These images are lovely! As is the ballet in that video – a dance I’ve always wanted to learn
