    I used to take ballet classes. Have many memories of woman putting on point shoes and talking away. While I sit around in my slippers waiting for our class to begin. This is really cool, special and meaningful.

  • Ann Wright says:

    The delicacy of the pale pink satin supported by the point shoe structure makes for a piece of art as well as strikingly creative and pretty fashion. If it can be upsized to a tote bag, you’ll have every ballerina as well as former ballerinas vying for one! You certainly are attending a school that promotes your creativity! Best of luck!

  • Beautiful inside and. Out- just like you! I want to buy one!
