Monday – Ballerina Skirt with Stripes

Tee - Lands’ End Canvas (similar)
Skirt - eBay
Shoes – Halogen “Payton” (similar)
Bag - HOBO The Original “Finch”
Necklace and Ring – c/o Kristin Biggs, Stella & Dot
Sunglasses - Marc by Marc Jacobs

Now honestly, Alison, do you REALLY need a tulle ballerina skirt? Nope. However, I have been really wanting one for a long time and wishing I never sold the black one I had from Express circa 1999. When I saw this one on eBay for such a sweet price, I decided to treat myself. Eh, it’s not the best made item. While it says one size fits most, I think it only fits comfortably up to a size 10. The elastic waistbands twists, the slip inside is very fitted and sheer, it’s not nearly as full as the photo, but it’s fun. I think I will like it with my black blazer and think come winter it would be fun with a fitted boatneck or turtleneck sweater.

    “do you REALLY need a tulle ballerina skirt? Nope.”
    I try not to be someone who corrects others often, but I’m pretty sure the answer to that is HELL-FRACKIN-YEAH. ;)

    This outfit is so fabulous– I could see myself doing one very similarly, from the striped top to contrasting leopard shoes. LOVE IT.

    I disagree, Allie… I DO think you needed this skirt. It’s adorable and I love that you grounded it with strong stripes and threw in a little leopard. One my fave looks of yours so far.

    You have definitely inspired me! I have a light pink tutu skirt and was unsure of what to do with it as to not look too cutesy and a striped top is the answer! Love this and will definitely try it!

    The stripes with the  tulle is so pretty! I have a black one I got super cheap off ebay that’s one size fits all and I feel the same way about it!

    I love the classics all together here in mainly monochrome. Princess skirt, stripe top, pearls and leopard. A winning outfit from head to toe!

    I love the knotted tee, it is an unexpected twist (literally!). I think everyone should have a skirt like this in their closet, just because!

    Long, long, long-time reader. Very rare commenter. BEST. OUTFIT. EVER. You somehow manage to look like comfy, gorgeous and like YOU in a ballerina skirt. How is that possible? Because you’re fab. That is all. :)

    I’m clearly behind on my blog reader, but I am excited about your gorgeous skirt. I have been longing for one after seeing Sal’s. But we just got a new kitten, so I may have put off a tulle purchase just a bit longer :P

    I agreed. I absolutely need a tulle ballerina skirt! They’re kind of the best thing ever. (Although I’m sad that this one only fits up to a size 10, because it’s so gorgeous and so cheap. Someone needs to start making plus-size cheap-ass ballerina skirts, because I’d totally buy one in every color.)

  • Arielle Kostan

    I have exactly that skirt *and* that top. But it would have never ocurred to me to put them together! Bless you for sharing this inspired look. ♥ ~Ari @ http://ever-belle.blogspot.com/
