At MICA, watching what you wear.

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???

Hello, anon!

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.

Last year, my NYR was to keep my nails manicured (or at least clean). 
Success!

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. 

Good luck!
