After Halloween my mind jumps to the next time I can dress up. For me that’s New Year’s Eve. Last year I wore pajamas and rhinestones. That was fun. This year I want to wear a tutu. A cross between something Carrie Bradshaw and Cyndi Lauper would wear. I think I want a colorful tutu that goes to the knee. I want to wear it with a vintage slub t-shirt or a slouchy sweatshirt — with either sneakers or boots. I know. It could be a train wreck.
I like the simplicity of Carrie’s outfit. A mint tutu with a super soft vintage T and blazer would be great, but I can’t wear heels. That’s why I like the Cyndi Lauper influence. I need to be comfortable and warm. My favorite part of New Year’s Eve is when I literally dance in the street.
There are lots of options available on Etsy. The most affordable seem to be square dancing petticoats. I’m tempted to make my own. Could I buy an awful old wedding dress, tear out the underskirt and dye it?
