Twirling in Tulle

My Threads: Shirt: H&M (similar), Skirt: ebay (Shabby Apple version), Bag: Calvin Klein, Pumps: Calvin Klein, Bracelets: Forever 21, J.Crew, Necklace: Forever 21 (similar), Watch: Michael Kors

This tulle skirt takes me right back to my years doing ballet. I just need some pointe shoes and about a pound of borderline clown make-up, and I'll totally be ready for a dance recital. We'll just pretend I can still walk around on my toes, hold my leg up by my head, and leap several feet in the air.

After seeing tulle skirts pop up on a few blogs, I went on a quest to find one. Originally, I wanted to make one, but then I remembered I don't know how to sew. Kind of problematic. I figured a duct tape or stapled tulle skirt just wouldn't be quite as fabulous. After deciding I didn't want to dish out $200 for the Anthro version, I found this one on ebay. It isn't quite as poofy, but for $10, I can't complain. 

Anyway, I couldn't resist twirling in this skirt. It's just so girly. Not that there are manly skirts (except maybe kilts), but you know what I mean. Marc managed to get some pretty ridiculous falling twirling pictures, but I'll save the rest for another outtake post. 

Happy Hump Day!


  1. I am kind of in love with that skirt - it's SO pretty! And I love how you paired it with plaid :)

  4. oh, i really like how you paired it with that checkered top!

  6. You look gorgeous! Love that you balance out the feminine bottom with a casual top!

  7. You can absolutely never have too much tulle! I love how you styled this look!

  12. I've been looking for one too and I'm so happy you said that you found this one for $10 such a deal. I love your outfit too, your always so stylish.

  13. Gorgeous! I love the entire outfit. I think I like the slim silhouette of the skirt as opposed to a puffy one. It makes it more wearable in my world.

  15. I love the tulle and plaid look. When the skirts are that cheap you can buy 2 and put one of top of the other if you want it really poofy (that's a real word right? poofy?



  16. I have been obsessed with tulle skirt since I was 4! Maybe 3... However, besides some cute little girls skirts in size 14, I have yet to find one like this. Love it so much! Great find! :)

    Classy with a Kick

  17. Emily that tulle skirt is just too cute! You have no idea how much I am lusting over one, and since you got this one so cheap (like you every skirt I see is too expensive) I need to check out ebay asap! Love love love this outfit xo

    1. PS, the link for the ebay skirt goes to the J Crew necklace..just thought you may like to know :)

    2. Thanks for letting me know! It should be fixed now.

  18. Sooo I have to admit - I just read your little info under your beautiful little picture and we don't have much in common....I'm not a fan of poodles (for some reason they scare me...) I could never live in a city that doesn't have seasons....(I love fall and winter wayyyyy too much) and I've never tried artichoke! lol. BUT sometimes, the best people to follow are the ones that are kind of opposites, right?! totally adding you to my daily reads!!

  19. Look at you all girly in your tulle! You look like a real life princess. Thanks so much for linking up this week!

  20. You look fantastic!! I just bought a tulle skirt and thought about styling it the same way there is something about having the balance of masculine and feminine.


  21. I have been looking at these skirts also. I was kinda worried that it would be a little too much tulle but it looks just perfect on you.

  40. Love the twirly tulle skirt :)

  41. thanks so much for stopping by my blog and comment cause in turn here I am and I am a new follower ... great giveaway too!! happy to have found you!!

  42. I did the same exact thing. I fell in love with the Karinska skirt at Anthropologie, but couldn't afford to pay $237 for it. I wanted to pay someone to make it for me, but I don't know anyone who sews either. So I saw another blogger, Ruby Girl, wearing this one and I followed her link and bought it for $12. Not anywhere near as poofy, but it does the trick.

    I really like how you styled it with plaid. So girly!


    1. Oh, and the pictures that the eBay sellers use for this skirt are SO deceiving. I knew it wouldn't be that poofy only because I had seen it on Ruby Girl, but I was still so disappointed when it was nowhere near as poofy as what was advertised. Still, for $12 (and you paid $10), I guess I'm not allowed to complain.

  43. This outfit really came together beautifully. I love the look of tulle but I'm afraid to spend the money. I think I'll get nervous trying to put it together with my current closet!

  44. Τodaу, І went to the beachfront with
    mу children. I fοund a sеa shell аnd
    gave it to my 4 year оlԁ ԁaughteг and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She placеd the shell to hеr eaг and screаmed.
