On the last Friday of every month, our snazzy little town hosts a "block party". It's a pretty fun time. Most children of the town use the festivities as an excuse to wear tube tops and shorts (as opposed to their T-shirts and shorts combos worn to school.) But we aren't most children. And while everyone else may think a breast-bearing tank and cuttoffs might be the most vixen-like ensemble out there, we agreed that nothing projects sexy, cool, and serious confidence like a tutu.
I know what you're thinking. Who (outside of toddlers and proffessional ballerinas) wears tutus out in public? But think about it. People are likely to notice you wearing a tutu. And they're either going to think "wow. what a crazy!" or "wow. I wish I had the guts to do that!" And as for the first group, I don't really hold their opinion in high regard.
If you're not yet convinced, here are some really well-worn tutu ensembles.
This one was taken from craftzine.com. Doesn't she make you want to put on a tutu, pick up a floral umbrella, and go marching about in a grassy field?
This one's not even being worn by anyone. But wouldn't you assume that someone who has a tutu hanging on their clothesline is an interesting specimen of fashion?
So here's how we wore them. Yes, these were from the elementary school era, and yes, they were a bit of a squeeze, (and yes, we had to edit the heck out of them) but I think it was well worth it.
Chloe's tutu getup.
