Christian Dior showcased balletic looks for Fall 2012, inspiring us to add a little dance inspiration to our everyday looks. For today's DIY, we're taking a cue from the runway and giving a pair of metallic flats a ballet-slipper feel with black ribbon. It's really simple, and all you need are some cute flats, black ribbon, scissors, and a hot glue gun and glue sticks. Watch on to see how you can make your very own pair.

Have any of you taken ballet? I have, and what I loved more than learning French terms and delicate moves was wearing those sweet tutus. That's why Shopbop's Look Book, titled On Pointe, warms my heart. Models warm up in soft-colored dresses, pleated blouses, poufy skirts, and ballet flats. Love the looks, then get the looks.
A friend of mine is in a modern dance group and they're having their recital soon. She invited me to go, and though I'm excited to see her moves, I'm nervous about my outfit. The only other dance recital I've been to was my little cousin's ballet class. I wanted to look dance-inspired but not foolish. Thanks for all of the lovely suggestions. I'm confident that I'll fit right in with the dance crowd in one of these sweet ensembles.
I started you off with this Jennifer Ouellette Headband ($75) because it has a sweet ballet aesthetic that will make me fit in with the dancers.

I know I said ballet-inspired looks are happening but this is ballerina overkill! This Rampage Brocade and Tulle Ballerina Dress, on sale for $71.99 (originally $129), is too froofy and too pink if you ask me. Though it may make a killer Halloween costume one day...what do you think? Love it or hate it?
I feel pretty...Oh so pretty...I feel pretty and witty and gay...This ballet-inspired trend is definitely a pretty one. You all know I attended the Nutcracker last month and am a fan of the ballet. This trend will also spill into Spring 2007 ala Michael Kors. I'm pretty jazzed about this look; here are my picks:
