The Repetto Wardrobe

For those who might not know, Repetto is an old and well respected French brand. They initially specialized in ballet products, but through the years they have extended their range of products. I’m an admirer of Repetto  because of their impressive knowledge of the dance industry, the quality of the products and the longevity of the brand. They have been in the business for over 65 years. Their Catchphrase is “A promise of a unique grace and lightness” and I simply love how it describes the whole atmosphere of the brand.



My favorite item of Repetto is their classic “ballerines” (ballet flat shoes). Interestingly, they became famous when French actress Brigitte Bardot asked Repetto to create them for a movie in 1956. After that they were called Cinderella Ballerinas.

They are so simple and cute, you just want them in different colors and leather types!



Ballerinas are popular not only among female high street customers but also among celebrities. Every women will find at least one pair of ballerinas in their shoe collection. They come in different colors and fabrics, but if you want them to last for a long time and feel like a French ballerina, I suggest Repetto.


Now guess what… on Wednesday, Repetto launched their first ready to wear clothes line! 18 pieces of grace and simplicity – just for us! It is such a clever idea, I love how they combine ballet dancing clothes with everyday pieces for everyday life.

I have picked my three favorites from the collection.


I like the tutu look-a-like in this one


The open back of that one is also adorable.


The color of the top together with the transparent skirt just makes an outfit!

There are two things I am passionate about – dance and fashion, and I am really happy that one of my favorite brands has had the idea of creating a wardrobe for everyone, not just dancers. So check out the collection!

Au revoir!

If you are a vegetarian or vegan like me, you’ll know how its sometimes difficult to maintain your vitamins and minerals intake to the recommended healthy level.
I have found a toothpaste containing Vitamin B12, that if used twice a day for four weeks, can boost your B12 to over 60%.
Available from most good organic supermarkets.
