I Hear the Bells

Man, I feel like a woman!
(Yes, I do intend to start every post with an iconic line from 90's music. You're welcome.)
I've been crushing on a tutu skirt since I was 5*, so when Cee brought out this little beauty at the swap I pretty much leapt over the table to grab it. And since it's been in my hands I've found countless loveable outfits to wear it with. 

*Seriously. Imagine my 5 year old disappointment when I found out that ballet classes don't automatically mean tutus.

After much deliberation I decided to take photos of the skirt with my favourite blouse, putting a very "me" spin on this swap item. I also twisted it around, something about a bow at the small of the back makes me smile and feel supremely girly!

  8. I just love how we literally swapped clothes in our posts today- too funny! And even more fitting considering we're both prairie girls and I'm commenting on this post all the way from Manitoba :) I love the way you wore my tutu with that light blue blouse and those gray suede shoes, which I have been lusting after since their debut on your blog. Oh, and the coral lip? Pretty much ballerina perfection ;)
