Tulle Skirts aka Tutus

The tulle skirt is the grown up version of a tutu. I absolutely love tulle and the feminine additive it brings to any outfit! If it were socially acceptable to wear a tutu every day (especially to work) I probably would. Since it is NOT I want to show ya’ll some ways you can incorporate the tulle skirt into your closet!

This piece is so dynamic but so soft! You can wear it with pretty much anything! Dress it up with a lace top or down with a vintage tee. Throw on a pair of chucks, gladiator sandals, even ankle boots, all styles work! This is because it is such a girlie piece! Plus, they come in all lengths and colors from a light blush all the way to hot pink.
Here are a few of my favorite ways to wear this great trend. Hopefully they inspire you to try it out!

Things EVERY Woman Needs

https://theoxfordguide.files.wordpress.com/2014/06/28241-img_0577.jpg

  1. A friend who knows when to tell you to stop being crazy and not yourself

  2. A friend who can get you crazy and wild.. Hopefully 1 and 2 are the same person

  3. A good bra

  4. A feel good outfit for a night out when you’re in one of those moods

  5. A go to hairstyle that isn’t a messy bun on the top of your head and doesn’t scream I just woke up 10 minutes ago and I still might be drunk

  6. Playlists for all occasions

  7. A favorite movie or book that never gets old

  8. An activity you enjoy doing that is just for you.. Mine is photography for all 2 of you who cared to know

  9. A bold lip color you can wear out if feeling sassy or just a good lip color to wear for every occasion

  10. A makeup routine for when you don’t have time to paint your face on

  11. Knowledge of your body type and what colors and styles look good on you

  12. Knowing the inner workings of your favorite stores For example never buy anything full price at J. Crew Factory and Zara has the best deals in January and July!

  13. A pair of sassy shoes like Sam Edelman’s spiked heels

  14. Two  REAL leather items: a purse and a jacket

  15. A stocked fridge- even if it is just water

  16. An easy recipe you can use in a pinch- like when your boyfriend forgets to tell you at 4:30 that you have a party to go to at 6:00 that night

  17. Knowledge of what is in your closet so you don’t buy yet another v-neck tee

  18. The ability to carry on a conversation that doesn’t have to do with gossiping or TV shows

  19. Friends that are separate from your other half

  20. Her own style and personality. Be you don’t get lost trying to be everyone else.

 

So until next time my loves,

xoxo

Sex and the City’s Life Lessons

Crushed dreams: The much-loved characters played by (l-r) Kim Cattrall, Kristin Davis, Sarah Jessica Parker and Cynthia Nixon are completely different in the films

 

Always carry a tampon.. You never know when a girl will be in need! And hopefully that desperate girl is the hostess of the hottest nightclub.

If you fart in front of him, don’t worry. It DID NOT ruin your relationship.

You always will have that friend who can see what you can’t and can tell you when you’re being ridiculous especially when it comes to your choices in men

There are good men out there and they might not always be the one you end up with. Even if they do look smokin’ hot when reintroduced to your life (or season).. Sorry Aiden…

Some guys are assholes and will breakup with you via a post-it note. In real life this will not get you out of being arrested for smoking a blunt on a corner but it is grounds for a wild girl night.

People change. That’s a fact but if a friend is a true friend she will replace your stolen Manolo’s, especially when it was her fault they were stolen anyway!

If your best friend hurts her back, after running a marathon I might add, and you never send over your man!!! that is a cardinal friendship sin!

Bad things are going to happen to the people you love, all you have to do is make sure that they know you love them and will always be there for them.

Always have a dress that men and women swoon over because honestly who doesn’t love Carrie’s “Naked Dress”

naked-dress

Sometimes you just need to let your hair down and live a little. Even if that means having a strange artist paint your vagina while his wife offers you lemonade and cookies.

If he doesn’t want you to leave things at his place don’t force it on him because he will give them back to you

It’s ok to be selfish and own it. YOu don’t want kids, that’s fine! You don’t want to wear a wedding ring?! Who cares? As long as you are happy with the life you live, don’t ever let anyone question your motives

 

Ovens don’t need to be used to cook they can totally just be some extra closet space. I’m pretty good at making reservations so our oven might as well hold some cashmere.

Don’t categorize your friends! Yes we all have our “favorite” character and we always try to do things that fit their personality! But if I were to pick I’m totally a combo of Charlotte and Samantha…

You are going to meet interesting people, especially being single in a large city and you will find men who have a foot fetish, like to be peed on or have sex in public places.

If your eastern European maid puts a statue of Mary in your dresser… she is trying to tell you to make some life changes, you might want to listen to her

If  his mother helps bathe him and if her name is Bunny… run… but mostly the bathing thing…

When you fall you’ll be the only person to pick yourself back up, even if it is on a runway during Fashion Week

season-4-4

Men really don’t care about fashion and hairstyles

I love to shop but I like my money in my savings and 401k for the most part, not my closet

 

And lastly…..

My best friends make my life so much more meaningful… and interesting! 🙂
