Kate & I finally got our hands on the perfect tutus ---or what we thought were the perfect tutus.
That was before we swung by Repetto's showroom to see their AW10 collection.
We had low expectations. We love Repetto, but how much can ballet flats change from season to season?
This time they've added masks to a few toes and continued marbling the leather, but they've also included booties---and not just dance booties---in brown leather with an ankle buckle. The knee-high canvas boot with a ballet-like bow up top is like a fall riding boot, but delicate (and is apparently selling very well). But about those tutus.
They're soft and fluffy, with a thin scalloped elastic waistband that actually comes in sizes. And though it comes in black and white, and with tops attached, it also comes in the most perfect pale orange-y pink. You can get one online for $128.
