Belle of the Ballet

Rodarte's drawing for the White Swan in the film Black Swan. The costume on Natalie Portman, in my opinion, was picaresque. In terms of the ballet, my favorite between the two will remain the Black Swan (Odile), because of her precise movements, fierce fouettes, and overall eccentric demeanor. But I fell in love with the costume's elaborate headpiece and use of tulle and feathers. Gorgeous, darling!

I think the bizarre/horrific parts of the movie have worn off, so I might listen to my Swan Lake soundtrack as I travel this week. I'm heading up north to Maryland and then Washington D.C. for the ECU bowl game, then to Charlotte for the weekend. I'm almost getting used to living out of my duffel.


  1. Hey Julie, you won the Flings bin giveaway on my blog so if you'll shoot me an email with your shipping address to haveyourcakeblog (at) gmail (dot) com, I'll get your bins to you!

    Also, I loved Black Swan. I thought Natalie Portman did a killer job and looked AMAZING!

  2. So glad I stumbled on your blog--I've been dying to see Black Swan and I think you tipped me over the edge! Have so much fun in DC and Charlotte...those cities are both ones that I miss very much. Can't wait to read more from you! xoxo {av}
