We are now taking blog name suggestions.
Fun fact: we don’t follow any other tumblrs.
Anonymous said: what kind of coats do you suggest for larger ladies???
I would stay away from anything double breasted, as those have a tendency to be cut straighter + there are more opportunities for the coat to pull (more buttons). I would also avoid puffers, mostly from a style standpoint… I tend to hate on them despite their warmth.
A cape, A-line, Swing coat, or belted coat would be good I think, but it always depends on where the largeness is. Something that is a bit shorter (above knee) would also be good to look at, as that eases the proportions of things a bit.
Good luck! coat shopping can be a real pain.
Anonymous said: any good tips on how to break in a pair of 10-eyelet docs FAST? they tore up the back of my ankles and i wore two pairs of high socks!
I wish I actually knew!
When I did pointe (and I think E can attest to this), the typical things to help break-in the shoes were closing doors on them and cheese-grating the soles.
A bit of googling has told me similar things that apply to docs: you can sandpaper the inside parts that are particularly rough, and rub leather softener/balm on the outside of the boots to help quicken the process.
