Starring Role

While years have passed since I last donned a tutu and pointe shoes, the love of tulle has stuck with me.  When The Black Swan fueled ballet-inspired fashion, I was excited, yet couldn't find the right piece-until I discovered this turquoise midi skirt.

  41. Such a pretty skirt!! I don't think I'd get any work done in it, I'd just keep twirling around and around! I love how textural the outfit is, the tank is the perfect simple piece to top it. Looking gorgeous Cara! xx

  42. I might have known you were a former dancer- me, too :) Even if it's been years since you've had a tutu on, if you've worn the fabric once, you'll love it forever. My closet is full of imitations tutus, but I don't have a midi-length version and I had no idea what I was missing until I saw this post! I just love the length and that colour is absolutely perfect with your skintone, not to mention those glittery blue heels. Gorgeous!
