If you’re going to do high maintenance dressing you got to be ready to put in the work. At least that’s what I found myself repeating over and over to myself as a I hiked several pounds of tulle along Great Western Road. To a baby shower. In the rain. My beautiful Bonnie Blinger is due to pop soon and god damn it, I was going to dress for the occasion.
Jacket – a wee Betty number she customised and I swiped. As I am wont to do.
Dress (worn as t-shirt) – Primark
Necklace – Primark
Tutu – Mr Ben’s Glasgow
Shoes – Converse
There are only so many appropriate situations for a massive tulle skirts (every day…obviously) however I thought this guy had to make its public debut at a special occasion rather than say, a nip round to Tesco. Other than feeling incredibly fancy (while getting away with some cons and a loose tee- call it a tribute to early Lily Allen) it has the added benefit of making people give you a wide breadth. Cons? Having to make sure it doesn’t drag, navigating layers for bathroom trips and of course knocking everything over as you forget just quite how wide you are.
I can’t wait to meet the baby Blinger, though there was something
decidedly surreal about going to a baby shower with no hangover on a
Saturday morning (officially a grown up now right?) It’s still super
lovely seeing the people I love building these wonderful lives for
I’m not entirely sure how to wear it for more formal affairs without looking, well, you know, bridal but it’s safe to say this little cutie is my favourite thing in my wardrobe/life at the mo. So what about you? Would you tutu?
