As the Opera season ends the Ballet season begins in New York City when the American Ballet returns to the Met Opera house. I have my tickets for both the Gala and the upcoming performance of Stravinsky’s “Firebird.”
In other words, gown season has officially begun for me.
While I was pondering what to wear to the Gala, I realized this was a perfect time to finally pull out the tulle skirts in waiting, because what goes better with ballet than tulle?
For those who are looking for tulle skirts, I highly recommend Shabby Apple. They come in a variety of sizes, colors and lengths [they do cater to plus sizes, they only list current inventory, so check back often or contact them to ask if they can let you know the moment a skirt you like becomes available in your size, they have excellent customer service].
I picked up the mint maxi tulle skirt. It’s basically a wrap skirt with tulle for miles. It’s my happy skirt. Granted, it takes up half the space in the gown closet, but it’s my happy skirt.
I’m really excited that I’ll be able to finally wear a couple of my tulle skirts next month as the ballet season opens, especially the Shabby Apple Wooster skirt.
One question I do get asked a lot on Pinterest is where someone can find a tulle maxi skirt in black. I made sure to include a few in the gallery. If you’re looking for something specific, let me know. I am always shopping for gowns, so I may know where you can find what you’re looking for.
