Tulle Skirts + Princess Tutus

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!)

Last week it snowed (and snowed and snowed and snowed,) school was cancelled, work was cancelled and so this:
