The Traveling Black Dress: Goth Ballerina Edition

Add some edge to your ballerina look with your classic LBD.

By Beth Muecke April 2, 2015

Ballet is my passion, so I can't believe it's taken me this long to create a ballerina look with my LBD. I love the dichotomy of the goth-edginess mixed with the soft pink. This past fall and spring, many of the runway shows included a combination of blacks and pinks.

The only place I had to "travel" my black dress for this look was my own closet. So, the only traveling involved in this shoot was to Houston Ballet Center for Dance, the largest dance education facility in the U.S. and a visual reminder of Houston's commitment to the performing arts.

This 6-story, 115,000-square-foot, beautifully windowed facility has 9 dance studios and a dance lab. No problem finding a great location to shoot pictures!
