new pointe shoes for a new dance season

we paid a visit to the gaynor minden boutique in chelsea when we were in nyc on friday and i just love it there!  i was only ever there once before in november when i last bought pointe shoes.  i was due for a new pair for the start of the new dance season.

since we knew we were going to be in nyc on friday, i called the boutique to make an appointment for a fitting because i knew i wanted to change a few things about my shoes this season.  the timing was perfect because our dance classes just started back up.  the experience was great (they have the best customer service) and i even walked out of there with an unexpected discount too!  that made me a very happy dancer!

dance shoes don't stay pretty and clean for very long, so i couldn't resist taking a few pictures before they get all dirty this season . . .

. . . and just for fun, a side-by-side comparison of my old shoes after just one season.  they're not completely dead yet, so i can still get a little bit of use out of them, but i knew they wouldn't survive the whole season!

love, laurie

Aren't they beautiful. There is nothing like the sight of new pink satin pointe shoes.
