Chilling in Tulle

grey marl t-shirt and black tulle skirtI have been after a tulle skirt for the longest time. So much so that I have a whole Pinterest board dedicated to tulle and tutus and I was even contemplating making one myself. Unfortunately I didn’t bring my sewing machine out here when we moved, which kind of put a stop to my fanciful Great British Sewing Bee ideas.

Luckily when we were in LA a few weeks ago I spotted a black tulle maxi skirt at the Rose Bowl Flea Market. It’s a little long on my short-ass frame, but I knew I had to make room in my suitcase to bring it home with me.

I never had any interest in ballet as a child (evidence of which can be seen in some of these questionable poses) but that never stopped me trying to capture an off-duty ballerina look, long before the days of Black Swan. As a teenager I loved off the shoulder t-shirts, and in my first year of university I had a thing for leg warmers. I never did get my hands on a pair of real ballet slippers like singer Amy Winehouse used to wear, but this skirt is continuing the theme nicely.

Who knows? Perhaps next year I’ll be craving a leotard and pointe shoes…
