But for today it's all about My Bloch ;)
As a kid and teen I had only a few ballet items, meaning leotards, tights, shoes and so on. One pair of softs, one pair of pointe shoes. One leo. Maybe 2 pairs of tights. One pair of legwarmers. These days... Well, I've got maybe too much ;) But there're just soooooo many options these days! Also in shops that aren't actually selling ballet stuff, but things that can be worn As ballet stuff. BUT: I've purchased some "real" clothes etc, some would call them labelled. Some Capezio, some Intermezzo, but mostly they seem to be Bloch. I found pictures on their site, actually all of them that I have :) So here you go!

|Prolite II (canvas, one pair black, one like the picture) -> http://www.blochworld.com/shop/p-171-prolite-ii-canvas.aspx|
|Lydia shrug (mine is black, super soft) -> http://www.blochworld.com/shop/p-148-lydia.aspx|
|Lucy (knitted shorts, super soft) -> http://www.blochworld.com/shop/p-893-lucy.aspx|
|The name of these is actually Quite hilarious!!! :D It is "Makeeta", which in Finnish means "Sweet! / Cool!" -> http://www.blochworld.com/shop/p-856-makeeta.aspx|
|A navy blue wrap skirt (it says satin ribbon on the site, but it's not, more like the same chiffon as the whole skirt) -> http://www.blochworld.com/shop/p-703-professional.aspx|
|Leotard called Dreamer <3 (mine is red, like Xmas red... :D) -> http://www.blochworld.com/shop/p-853-dreamer.aspx|
Additional picture. These I would like to get, want to test them. I like the Suprima's on my foot (as I've got quite tapered toes), but the platform Is very small. So, Serenade's... Maybe.

Haven't yet been wearing the skirt, the knitted shorts nor the leotard. But as the weather gets colder and colder, the shorts will be tested quite soon I think :)
That's it for now. Next subjects will be for example a report on my 2 classes with an amazing teacher in Footlight (Helsinki). And of course the works I've seen! Romeo & Juliet from 30th of April, Blood Wedding / Scheherazade from 27th of September... Would be fun to write about a Swan Lake I saw in the beginning of 90s - if only I'll find the brochure somewhere. Lots of ideas :)
