{signature style :: tutus + bows + a giveaway}

I've always wanted to be a ballerina. I'm a terrible dancer, so even though I've tried (desperately), it's just not meant to be. I think it's their grace and femininity, but it's also probably for the best. I do like having pretty toes, and I can always just dress like one!

I got this skirt like, two years ago, and I've NEVER worn it. I haven't had the heart to give it up, either, so it's just been collecting dust in my closet. I finally decided to bring it out last week, and I'm so glad I did. Here's to hoping I have a few Christmas parties I can wear it to this year!
And now, sponsor time! I am SO excited to share an absolutely adorable designer with all of you today! Katie creates the sweetest hand-illustrated cards, and I just can't get enough. Seriously, if you want something unique for any occasion, you should definitely check out Katie's Etsy shop, currently stocked full of the cutest paper goods you ever did see. Oh! And she's offering one lucky reader (and future bride) a hand-illustrated "Will you be my bridesmaid" card! Enter below, and good luck!

A Tulle skirt is very high on my wish list. One of these days I'm going to go for it! It looks great on you! (Also, I REALLY wish I had a need for that bridesmaid card!)

it's so elegant! I'd love to see a hot pink top tucked into it with ballet flats and one of your fun buns! (with a bow, of course)

I couldn't believe it when I actually found it! I had no idea how I was going to wear it, but it obviously needed to happen.

Thank you!!!

Joelle Duff said...

Thanks lady! And I kind of think every woman should own one...you should feel so pretty in it!

Joelle Duff said...

Love. I'm not always very creative at coming up with different ways to wear things, so this is a great idea!
