Leah said...

I used to hate tulle because what we had before were the stiff ones. Then when my sister got married and my gown was designed made of japanese tulle... it was so soft and lovely.

I love that fairy skirt.

♥Aubrey said...

I love the way Dior & Givenchy brought their style to it. Oooo and that Haute Hippy dress...i sooo tried this on at Nordi's. Lets just say it's cuter in pics :)-
Have a wonderful week hun.

Katherine said...

Love this post! I must be a ballerina at heart-- have always love tulle...

Erika said...

Congratulations Jennifer!

Oh, you are truly unkind to tempt me like this - I'm obsessed with tulle. The Haute Hippie Jersey Tutu Tank Dress has been on my radar for months - I would give anything to own it. Though that Cynthia Rowley Tulle Dress is quickly becoming a favorite - j'adore! :)

freeteyme said...

ah tulle - very feminine and delicate. love the skirts with a little tulle showing =)

Wana said...

love mesh looks as well! we call them organza as well. lol

lisa said...

I love the Pucci LBD! A classic Pucci pattern done in contrasting fabrics--divine. :-)

Love tulle under skirts, adds that certain oomph. That nude Rochas outfit is amazing.

Dream Sequins said...

I'm CUCKOO for tulle. Can't get enough of it. I noticed this used in unconventional ways at the Spring 2010 NYFW shows.

Sher said...

Amazing dresses, CC! I love tulle, when you wear it you feel like a ballerina:)

Zepequeña said...

I love the tulle!

Zepequeña.

Monica said...

I'm loving the tulle. It has a ballet feel to it, which would just make me feel pretty and graceful wearing it. I definitely need to find some good tulle.

Jennifer Fabulous said...

I am in love...with that dark pink Tulle dress and that hot pink Betsey Johnson dress. I want those two so bad I think I'm going to cry!

joannapple said...

I absolutely love Haute Hippie jersey tutu tank dress that reminds me of the one that Carrie wore in Sex&The City, Project Runway & Emanuel Ungare creations from ones U`ve picked, but recently I`m totally in love with Phillip Lim`s fall collection.

Maria Confer said...

Love your title!!! Very clever.

I adore tulle and it's eternal girliness, but I love mixing it with more funky pieces, too.

Lovley! Definitely not just for ballerinas anymore. Adore that long chloe skirt.

Tulle is gorgeous. I love the two black outfits at the bottom of your blog. They are unbelievably chic. :)

Kristin said...

I will never get over tulle! I'm still rocking my Betsey Johnson circa 2004.

The Haute-Shopper said...

Such gorgeous examples! Tulle has such an amazing effect. Love all the Chanel of course (not that I can afford it) and the JPG piece makes me wish I had chosen that as a wedding dress, even if it's black. Imagine walking down the aisle in that... how dramatic would that be? ;-) Hope you had a wonderful weekend!

Pau said...

Love Valentino and these pics you choice ;)

Love the Marie Claire photo...and the Christian Dior couture. Beautiful.

Gabbi said...

I've said this before, but you really do have such a knack of pointing out lovely and feminine trends dear CC. I adore the word Tulle in itself. I want want something with Tulle in it now :) In an ideal world it would be that pink prom dress at the end of your post... but where would I wear it too. I need a time machine damn it.♥

I really like Twelve by Twelve! F21 is getting better and better... I just got a bunch of stuff from there and people think I'm joking when I tell them where I bought my clothes!

Allison said...

I love, love, love tulle! That first picture is just perfect beyond words =) These are all seriously so lovely, there are no words!

Sher said...

I remember tulle being so scratching. So happy technology has changed all that.

LPC said...

Tulle. One of the great gifts to mankind.

congratulations to the winner :)

stylewithbenefits said...

Love tulle! You picked out great images to illustrate that tulle doesn't have to be limited to the ballerina-esque look. That last pink dress is a dream.

xo, Becs

pretty*pink*rat said...

Love tulle! I think we all dreamed of tutus as young girls, and tulle in grown up form just takes us away!

Nubia said...

I love tulle!! so chic and girly

Oh, Chanel, how I love thee! The black and white is simply lovely. Lagerfeld is genius with his designs.

Carrie said...

CC, this is a fabulous post! I love tulle and the looks on the runways are amazing, esp the one by Givenchy. Hope your week is off to a good start. Thank you for lovely comments about my photography. You're a dear.

All the best,
Carrie

Rachel Follett said...

Oh sweet! Tulle time! I love that last coral one. Gorgeous!

Vintage Me New You said...

This post is so romantic as I found those fabrics so dreamy!
I don't even know what to choose as my favorite, I love so many!

Style Redux 2 said...

I love tulle-ever since I started ballet at 5. Simply stunning!

kpeach New York, NY said...

ooh love this! the chanel look is amazing, and I need the ballerina dress (with some serious boots of course) xo

Little Red said...

Amazing looks!
I really love that hot pink skirt!

Style Redux said...

Lovely. The Chanel is perfection. The Monique Lhullier plum tulle dress Mila Kunis wore to the Emmy's was my favorite. I bought an Elizabeth and James black tulle dress that I absolutely adore. I even wear it during the day with a black blazer. I like that tulle is romantic and pretty, but sexy and flirty at the same time.

Intrinsically Florrie said...

Ah so many lovely tulle pieces.
My favourite is the D&G. Skirts like that remind me of old ballerina skirts like in Degas paintings.

Florrie x

Dana said...

Yes, yes, yes!! Those skirts and dresses are fab!!

The Seeker said...

OMG I LOVE it!!!!
I want so badly something even with just a trimmer of tule... and it seems I can't find it.

xoxo

missDTM said...

tulle reminds me of when i was a little girl so i can't seriously wear anything with tulle under the skirt. but these styles are fantastic and i might try some of the other styles.

:)

pranksygang said...
