    I love how this can be taken in a classic or punk direction – complete polar opposites yet the skirt works for both. Thanks for highlighting this comparison.

      So lovely and feminine. I am too chicken to wear one, but if I could muster the courage, I would probably never wear anything but tutus every day!

    How perfect! All black and white, elegant just like real ballerinas. They even have similar hair cuts.
    However, I love the difference in the shoes. Can’t decide what to pick: angel or devil :)

    love the team up with the feminine tutu with the hard hitting boots. It’s a brilliant synergy

    Opposite but very attractive. I can’t decide which one I like :
    Punk or classic ?
    Both !!

    I am so glad you are featuring these. I have been dying to get my hands on one. It reminds me of Carrie Bradshaw, and who wouldn’t want to look like her!?

    Great ideas on how to incorporate every little girl’s favorite skirt into an adult wardrobe.

    even in this city mood ballerins can evoke romanticism. if you like this outfits you have to look at the 1960 dress by Nina Ricci in my last post! So ballerinas, so let’s go to l’Opéra!

    I HATE the first one and LOVE the second one.

    I love ballerinas skirts but afraid that people will look at me as I’m a mad person, no much fashion in DC

      Exactly what I thought. They are etherial and beautiful, but I fear people would think I was a lunatic.

    So hard to pull off a tulle skirt without looking costume-y but the one on the right did it perfectly.

    • Maddy Marcel

      February 5, 2013 at 10:32 am

      My thoughts exactly – she looks perfectly elegant, not remotely costume-y. Brava!

    I love the combination of the knitted sweater and the light tulle on the outfit on the right. Unexpected, yet appropriate.

    I bought a white tutu very similar to these in anthropologie for Christmas, although it is slightly longer and puffier. It is the best thing I have ever bought I can dress it up with pink angora sweaters and baby blue Carven bow shoes. Or I can pretend to be a Russian princess with a fur coat, lace detailed jumper and grey tweed tasseled slippers. Or I can dress it down it with distressed leather boots from Frye. It can be worn with white tights like a ballerina, or ankle socks like a little girl playing dress up, or in the summer I can’t wait to try it with a broderie anglaise tshirt, bare legs and sandals. Every girl needs a tutu in her wardrobe!

    I want the second outfit paired with the boots of the first.

    I made mine with 21 feet of tool. It is very simple to make as long as you have elastic and abundance of tool. It just takes a little while =) These are beautiful though. I love the blazer with it. Super cute!
