What do weddings, Disney princesses, and ballerinas all have in common? Tulle skirts. My Cinderella Story starts with the introduction to Society+ tutu skirt collection. Nothing makes a woman feel more than a princess quite like a dramatic full length tutu skirt. But because I’m Bianca Karina, I couldn’t just style a white tutu or a pink tutu, I had to be slightly unconventional and picked grey. You know how much I hate black, but grey is my spirit color, the shade of my soul. You can ask my fiance, anytime he asks what color we should buy something in for the house I always say “It would look great in grey.”
Styling a ball room tulle skirt is a challenge for any fashion blogger, but when you are only 5’4″ full length skirts are hard to style. My first instinct is to pair my Society Plus long grey tutu with my 8 inch Jessica Simpson platform booties. Considering those are the tallest heels I own and the ballroom tulle skirt STILL touches the ground, I said screw it. I pulled a Hillary Duff in Cinderella Story and decided that Converse were the best option for this dramatic, elegant, and feminine skirt.
You all know how much looking girly makes me squirm. When Society + asked me to pick some plus size pieces off of their website, I knew I was in for a challenge. Society Plus has pretty feminine items; lots of skirts, floral dresses, flouncy tops etc. But I wanted to showcase some more clothing options that us curvy women had that were not the standard Forever21+ and Torrid.
I decided on three Society Plus items that could be worked into my usual indie boho urban style. I decided on Society + Damask trouser pant, premium long grey tutu, and their Chicest of them All vest. When the package arrived I knew that the ballroom tulle skirt was going to be FUN.
Honestly, as I was slipping under the satin lining and adjusting the five tulle layers I was thinking “why did I choose this?” Then I looked in my closet’s full length mirror and immediately smiled. Even with my hair unbrushed in a messy pony tail, glasses, no make up, and a college hoodie, the tulle skirt was enough to make my heart smile.
People who discredit the power of a good outfit don’t know what they are missing. Wanting to appear presentable, cute, or beautiful isn’t necessarily shallow. When you dress for yourself, the outfits you put together become an extension of your personality. A ballroom grey tulle skirt may not be “me,” but it makes me happy to see it trail behind me as I walk. That is how you start building, growing and changing your style. Because style is just that, always shifting. This is why stepping out of your comfort zone is beneficial to your personal growth. It helps you discover what you like and how you like it.
