carrie bradshaw moment + styling Tulle for fall

Today, my blogger BFF Rhea of rheaetcetera.com and I  decided to do something  fun and share with y’all our take on the Tulle skirt. We never talked about what our outfits look like or how we styled them but I loved how it turned out when I saw our pictures side by side! The contrast between Rhea’s beautifully styled ultra-feminine, dreamy pastel-colored tulle and my darker ensemble made this little collaboration of ours perfect.  Head on over to Rhea’s blog at rheaetcetera.com to see how she styled her Tulle skirt!

Admit it, we’ve all had our fair share of envisioning  ourselves wearing a tutu since the day we’ve laid eyes on Carrie’s pink tutu from Sex and the city.  Okay, maybe not a tutu but doesn’t that TV show just make you want it too? Hahaha, maybe not but I’ve gotten myself one around 2 years back but when I brought it home, hubby was laughing at it!! I know he doesn’t know squat about tulle skirts but I ended up returning it anyway. I still wanted to rock one though so when I saw this navy number at a consignment store, decided to take it home because 1) it was a great deal  2) I thought since it is a darker color, I can pull it off better with no laughing spouse in the background and  3) if I ended looking like a Disney character, I wouldn’t feel so bad about this purchase.  As it turns out, it didn’t look too bad! Infact, I think it is rather cute without looking overly sweet. This is probably how I want my Carrie Bradshaw (SATC opening credits) moment to look like. J

  1. I love the fact that this tulle outfit looks so effortless. Tulle seems a little over the top for me but you and Rhea have given me some great ideas on how to incorporate it in everyday wear. Really love this look! Hope you're having a great week, Uris! ~Cynthia

  7. I was a ballerina when I was young. A blue tutu with silver adornments. Love your skirt, so girly and pretty. I love it with the heels that tie and the ankle and the pretty navy top. Your clutch looks like the perfect size to put things in.

  11. Ok, so now I have the SATC theme song stuck in my head! I loved Carrie's tulle skirt and I love your take on it too. I can also see this skirt paired with a faux-fur cropped jacket during the holidays for a more "party" look. Such a fun look!

  14. this is a great outfit. I love the tulle in navy. You usually associate tulle with pinks and softer colors so it's great to see the contrast. =) Great look!

  22. I loved this post. So fun to see two different takes on tulle. I like that your skirt is not as full as some and thus a little more wearable.

  27. The tulle skirt looks great, I love the dark blue. For my bachelorette party we all wore tutus, felt like 2nd grade ballet class again only in pumps. ;)

    Thanks for linking up with me and Lauren to day for Fab Favorites!

  28. i LOVE how you styled your tulle skirt and that you went with a black and navy theme. i know some people who don't think the two colors can be worn together, but it is one of my favorite combos!!

  29. Awww...I absolutely love this outfit - you look great! Plus, the color is fantastic! I am such a sucker for tulle skirts. I own one and have worn it once...out...in NY...haha! I don't know if it will fly in Houston, but I'm thinking if I pair it with a sweater or something simple, I could just bring my inner Carrie Bradshaw out!

  30. I like both rhea's and your tulle outfits. I had no idea how versatile they were until this Summer when I saw so many bloggers wearing them in a variety of different ways. I think navy is softer than black and as it's neutral you could probably wear any other colour with it. You look great!

  31. Gorgeous! I am so very happy that tulle has come around. I so remember clearly when Carrie wore that tulle skirt years before it was vogue and said to myself, now that is HOT when others raised an eye! I love it.

  33. What an utterly wonderful look - and not just because I appreciate a navy head-to-toe look any day of the week! The tulle skirt is beautiful without being too sickly sweet and I couldn't agree with you more about the SATC Tulle Skirt moment.. even though I've only seen the movies and am yet to view the series, I have seen so many clips of SJP's styling throughout the series that I feel as though I've watched it! The urban edge provided by the H&M sweater in this look is brilliant and very well though out. All in all.. fantastic! Rhea looks beautiful in her look as well and she needs to know that she looks VERY Jennifer Lopez, which can only be a good thing! :) Thanks a million for your kind message on my blog, I'm so glad to have crossed paths with you on our blogging journeys! :)

  34. If APL Logistics is sold, NOL may free up capital that will be reinvested in its core business, 2015 nike air max pas cher but it will also lose about $80m of core operating earnings. Its gross debt position will drop, yet net leverage will remain problematic. nike air max pas cher And of course there is also the competitive position of the shipping line in an industry which is almost entirely focused on economies of scale – its largest ships are 13,200teu, at the lower range of the ultra-large container vessel class and which offer considerably higher cost per slot air max pas cher operating economics compared to the 18,000-19,000teu ULCVs.
