From the moment the Alt Summit schedules were released, my party-outfit-planning ideas ran rampant. One thing I knew for certain: I had to have a full tulle skirt, not unlike a princess tutu of sorts. Why did I have to have a tulle skirt? Why not? Also, I don’t really have that many opportunities to go frolicking around in a tutu like skirt (do you?)
I started the hunt like I always do (Google, right?) I came across a variety of colors, shapes, and prices. I was pretty disappointed in the selection; I must have looked at a hundred tulle skirts that just were not the one. What do I do when google can’t help? I turn to Etsy. Which is where I found Nathalie of American Blossoms and her beautiful and fun handmade tutu skirts.
She will custom-make a skirt in any color, size, and length (I think I should’ve added a few more inches to my order; I ordered 23.5 inches for reference.) Her skirts have been featured in several magazines, and she has amazing customer service (seriously good response time people!)
How could I go to Salt Lake City and not see Temple Square, right?
Skirt: c/o American Blossoms
Sweater: JCrew (because: cashmere.)
Necklace: JCrew (no longer available, but similar here.)
Shoes: George (that’s right: Wal-mart. similar here)
Clutch: Forever21 (similar and fabulous one here)
Last week it snowed (and snowed and snowed and snowed,) school was cancelled, work was cancelled and so this:
Sweater: Ralph Lauren (because, again: cashmere.)
Necklace: Forever21 (for a little bit more $, buy two of these.)
Boots: JCrew (no longer available, but Nordstrom Sale!)
Bracelet: Jcrew (kinda, sorta similar here?)
Because what girl doesn’t want to run around in the snow in her fairy princess tutu tulle skirt?!
