Red Shoes In The Land Of The Sheep

 So lets use these shoes as an opportunity to talk about one of the only tv shows I have seriously cried over.

Dance Academy.

(cue all the Australians going "ahhhhhhhhh")

 I don't know what was so addicting for me about this show, but I love it. 
When I first discovered it, I watched both seasons in a week. 
A WEEK. 
What's that called? oh yeah, obsession.

 anyway, moving on. 

SPOILER

just wanted to warn you.

In one of the very last episodes, my personal favorite male character, Sammy, gets hit by a car and dies. 
They give you exactly half a second to process this before throwing you into literally the most heart guttering grief scene ever. 

MEAN GIRL IN A FREEZING SHOWER GRIEF.

 Hard core stuff people. 

Then, because this show is centered around dance, the show goes on.
 This show-going-on-ing ensues in a beautifully tragic dance that made anyone who has managed to follow what is happening cry. again. 

and now we come to the conclusion of this rambling backstory..

The dance is called "The Red Shoes".

 You get it now, don't you?

So while taking these photos, I attempted to sum up any ballet skills I had. 
(aka zero)
I felt like I owed it to Sammy. 

(who btw, is played by a pretty awesome actor who you should totally twitter-stalk.)

I think I pulled muscles I didn't know I had.

But aren't these shoes pretty?

claps for Madeline for dragging me into UO, which is not a usual haunt of mine, which led to me locating these on the sale rack.

Also, this shirt, let's talk about it.
You've probably seen it floating around tumblr, on Alli Simpson, or maybe you own it. 
It is really cool.
I just felt really San Fransisco/Sydney chic.

(Again with the land of the sheep, I know.)

 If that wasn't a thing, it is now.

Are you Australian? 


My brother actually just said that. 

I've taught him well.

Tell me what I want to hear. Or what you want to say.

Just remember:

If you're mean, I'll track you down and replace all your shoes with those hideous white tennis things that are so popular among the very sad.
