When I saw the Agrippina dagger ballet shoes from Azoury, I had to go get them. Silly me because ever since I quit dancing in RL, I haven’t worn my en pointes anymore, and the mere idea makes my toes hurt all over again. Those dancing days are still associated for me with the smell of camphor, which we used as a mild local anaesthetic as well as to toughen the skin, so your feet wouldn’t bleed that easily. I still have mixed feelings about that smell. Funny how that works, no?
Anyway, these shoes are gorgeous, and they work with the SLink updated Pointe feet!
I am wearing them with Valentina E‘s  Katherine body suit and the feather collar of Zibska‘s Wallis dress. My hair is Monica by Tableau Vivant (Kustom9) and  my head is Simone by LeLutka. Body, as usual is Lara from Maitreya.
A special mention for the Girl at the Window pose prop from Exposeur which is my backdrop here.
