Thank you very much for the warm welcome to Already Pretty! My very first post as a Contributor (Unapologetically Size 14, see here) was one full of depth and considerable feeling. Although there are many things that I feel quite passionately about, I wanted to share something light and airy this time around. Nothing says light and airy like a super poufy tulle skirt, right?! Too bad that the weather happened to be dreary and gray on the day that I wore this look… Alas, I’m moving on…
The cat is out of the bag; I am completely smitten with my tulle skirt (purchased back in 2013). In my mind there are 99+ ways it can be styled, and I just might be on a mission to document each and every one. Today I’m sharing one way, “Feminine Edge.”
Tulle skirts ooze femininity. One rightly feels a sense of frilly girlhood each time it is worn. Side note: Although I ordered my skirt from a vendor on etsy, since then I have discovered tons of DIY tutorials all over the web. They show you step-by-step exactly how to make a skirt identical to this one! I have that on my lengthy to-do list, because there are at least three other colors that I can totally see myself in.
Typically I style my tulle skirt/tutu with femininity in mind. But there’s no fun in staying inside ‘the box‘! I decided to step outside of my comfort zone, to target an edgy spin on things. Please check out my previous tulle skirt/tutu styles here, here, and here.
My Rocksbox membership actually provided me with most of the jewelry worn here. I must say, their pieces added the exact edge factor that I was looking for! Have you heard of Rocksbox? It’s a membership-based jewelry styling service. Jeweled sets are curated for you based on your style profile, which you personalize. You can keep and wear the pieces for as long as you like, or return sets anytime, as often as you want. Guess what?! Just for YOU: Try the service free of charge for one month, by using code InMyJoiXoXo at checkout!
To fully bring in the edge, I opted for reflective sunnies, studded spikes, mixed metals, a jean jacket, and rugged cowboy boots. Without further ado, I’d love to hear your thoughts! Did I accomplish my goal of “Feminine Edge”?
Until next time,
