Luxury Ballet Flat, $170 at shopbop.com
As I was browsing Shopbop yesterday, I happened to notice the name of a designer I had never seen before on the website's comprehensive listing. Of course, I recognized the name Bloch as one of my favorite dancewear brands, but I didn't really think that the maker of my humble canvas slippers was really selling its wares on Shopbop. Sure enough, however, the $170 "Luxury Ballet Flats" seen above were produced by the same designer who supplies me with my $14 canvas ballet slippers. To be honest, I'm still just a little confused. Aiming high, Bloch?
