Sweater & Tulle



Ever since my childhood dreams of becoming a ballerina* didn't come to fruition (mostly because I grew tits. and ass.), I was determined to at least walk around swathed in tulle at any given opportunity. So what if I wasn't going to grace Bolshoi stage dressed in tulle tutu;  I can simply wear yards of sequined tulle on the streets of London without anyone batting an eyelid.
In my head, tulle goes with everything...denim, tweed, wool....everything. I combined it here with cozy woolen sweater and my new fave bag.  Still sporting bare legs too (one would think I was born in Newcastle, no?)

*I also dreamed of becoming a Hollywood actress and an international pop star. Alas I cannot act. And I most definitely cannot sing. But let's leave those confessions for another time.

I wore:
Sweater: Zara
Tulle skirt: Stella Forest
Shoes: ASOS
Bag: Rebecca Minkoff

Lips: Sleek "Baby Doll"
Nails: Ciate "Cookies and cream"

This is a beautiful skirt! I understand about ballet because I experienced the same thing! My body started it chsnge into a way that's "inappropriate" for a dancer (aka puberty comes with curve)!

Love it all. The skirt is just beautiful and wonderfully paired with the jumper. And you are just a funny (as in ha ha) lady.

Born in Newcastle. Hilarious.

Haha to the Newcastle reference and ditto to the reasons why ballet wasn't on the cards for me either. I love the skirt-jumper combo, and the shoes really suit you. Gorgeous mixture of ballet and biker in this outfit :)

@sue...I'm trying to give Geordies a run for their money. No way I will be beaten on bare legs/no coat issue. Let's see how long I last :D

Maiken said...

well, that's definitely a special skirt. even like a dream skirt. which is only correct when I think about what you wrote about ballet.

Love your tulle underskirt! It looks amazing. Like you I love tulle, but I don't have nearly enough of it in my closet.
