Everyday Ballet

August 9, 2017

12345 Lucia got her fill of ballet this summer with a number of ballet camps and classes. Seeing her put on her ballet shoes reminded me of mine from when I was young and practiced at a little studio in Fremont with a wonderful woman named Yoko. All of those years taught me that how you carried yourself was an expression in and of itself.

Decades removed from those pirouettes but still in love with the movement, I was excited to meet the Raymond Weil team recently and learned that they had partnered with Repetto for the Raymond Weil Shine x Repetto collection: their signature Swiss luxury timepieces paired with interchangeable straps crafted in Repetto leather. A perfect match, in my opinion! Both are still family-owned businesses celebrating craftsmanship and are symbols for elegance and movement. Sharing my #EverdayBallet look today with ballet pink straps from the collection.


Watch – Raymond Weil (here and Repetto leather strap here | also love the simplicity of this style and the decadence of this style. Also love the bracelet on the Tango collection, especially this simple style here and this two-tone style here)
