Awesome News, Valentino and Ballet?!

I got some exciting news last night, I am now part of the Ruche Blogger Family! They sent me an email yesterday to let me know that my post about wedding planner advice is being featured today! So click right >here< and go check it out. I am absolutely thrilled, I am a huge fan of Ruche, they have wonderful clothing and accessories, and their recent expansion into bridal and children’s garments is absolute perfection. Don’t forget to take a look around while your on their site, the cold weather is coming and you might just find something you have to have for this autumn. Now to the real post!

This year, the New York City Ballet‘s Fall Gala featured breathtakingly beautiful dance ensembles by legendary designer Valentino. 16 hand crafted, original designs with couture details.  The costumes while predominately black and white, were finished off with splashes of the signature Valentino red.

I spent a lot of time running in a tutu and “ballet slippers” when I was younger, heck even now I love a good tulle skirt, just look a my Pinterest boards. And while knowing the five different foot positions is about as far as my ballet skills go, it is one of those things that will always be mysterious, elegant, and oh so grown up to me.

About Julie

My name is Julieanna Bucior, but I go by Julie (unless I'm in trouble). I'm thirty one. I am a bookkeeper by day, rogue fashion designer/crafter/amateur baker by night. I spend most of my time feeling like a kindergartner trapped inside an adult's body. I love reading, hanging out with my crazy cats and being silly. I'm pretty much the girl next door, with a twist.
