Welcome back Lovelies! I hope you had a fun filled weekend. Every woman deserves to feel like a princess. That feeling is not reserved for little girls only. I certainly felt like one during this shoot. There’s something about the frilly layers of a tulle skirt that totally transforms one’s feeling from bleh… to one of total elegance, grace, and charm.
A tulle skirt is flirty, fun, and ‘romanticesque’…hehe, instantly creating an allure of glamour and elegance. You do not need an excuse or special occasion to rock the heck out of tulle. So go ahead, have the audacity to find your inner princess and have your very own, personal Princess moment, so to speak.
Life is short. Life moves by quickly. Time as they say, waits for no one so, make every day special! Everyone is busy these days and we often loose sight of the important things in this life. Little moments that make us feel special can be all the difference. Fall in love…spend time with loved ones…pursue that passion…buy that dress, that shoe, that purse…take a day off…pop that bottle of wine you’ve been saving for that special day…use your fine china…whatever the heck it is that’ll make you feel special or loved, go ahead…have at it!
Tulle Skirt DIY (OOTD)
Todays look is special to me in that it symbolizes a coming to terms with who you are, finding your passion and being unabashed to pursue it. My little sister ( I say little, but she ain’t so little anymore, but you know what I mean) made this skirt for me…this is only her second sewing project! Super proud of her.
Anyways, I chose to mix up the tulle with contrasting colors for a bit more drama, and it turned out superb, just as I had envisioned in my mind’s eye. To keep the drama on the skirt, I paired it with a simple top, neatly tucked in and added this belt, previously styled here, for waist definition. This hand bag, which I borrowed from my sister is the perfect complement for the belt. These Loubs ( see for how they came about) carries the theme of the skirt. Finally, in line with the theme, I opted for this dainty necklace to complete my look. What are your thoughts on this ensemble?
Alternative Styling Tips
Tulle skirts are surprisingly quite simple to style. You can play it down to a casual look or glam it up, either way, you’ll look and feel fabulous. So here my take on other ways to style this……look
- Pair the tulle skirt with a sequin/bling top for nighttime glam
- Loose the shoulder bag for a clutch to amp up your chicness.
- Loose the dainty necklace for some pearls for more city girl glam
- Pair with a graphic tee of your choice for a casual daytime look
- Add a structured handbag, nude pumps, and menswear inspired shirt/top to tone down the girlies and add a little androgyny to your look.
- Add a biker jacket for some edginess
- Pair with a fitted blazer and structured handbag for office appropriate wear.
