Tulle Skirts + Princess Tutus

From the moment the Alt Summit schedules were released, my party-outfit-planning ideas ran rampant.  One thing I knew for certain: I had to have a full tulle skirt, not unlike a princess tutu of sorts.  Why did I have to have a tulle skirt?  Why not?  Also, I don’t really have that many opportunities to go frolicking around in a tutu like skirt (do you?)

I started the hunt like I always do (Google, right?)  I came across a variety of colors, shapes, and prices.  I was pretty disappointed in the selection; I must have looked at a hundred tulle skirts that just were not the one.  What do I do when google can’t help?  I turn to Etsy.  Which is where I found Nathalie of American Blossoms and her beautiful and fun handmade tutu skirts.

She will custom-make a skirt in any color, size, and length (I think I should’ve added a few more inches to my order; I ordered 23.5 inches for reference.)  Her skirts have been featured in several magazines, and she has amazing customer service (seriously good response time people!)
