Tutu Cute: The Perfect Pettiskirt. (And they're not just for little girls!!)

Just because I'm 28 doesn't mean I don't still love the vestiges of a girly girlhood - including the color pink, headbands, and all things frilly & ruffled.  I also love 50s style dressing and I used to borrow the ruffled petticoats from Betsey Johnson to wear for photoshoots (or just for fun).  Although I would have happily bought them, unfortunately they were just showroom samples.  So when I spotted a bright red pettiskirt on Zappos.com while browsing for a Valentine's day outfit, I freaked.  It was ... gorgeous.  But when I went to the website - KaiyaEve.com - I didn't see any section for adults.  Noooo!!!  Little girls shouldn't be the only ones allowed to dress up like little girls!

After a short email exchange with the lovely owner, Kandi, I found that size 12 does in fact fit most adult women (up to size 8).  I promptly ordered three!  When they arrived, I can say with absolute certainty that there is NO WAY they could have been higher quality or more beautiful.  I was astounded.

Since then, I've ordered five more, in various colors (and yes, one I gave to a 5-year-old, and it remains her absolute favorite dress up item).

Tutus as wall/ceiling art!
But I don't just wear them - and laugh all you want at this, but it makes me happy - I use them to decorate.  I had been in the showroom for Rachel Ashwell's Shabby Chic, and I noticed she had these stunning vintage dresses with tulle pettiskirts hanging from her ceilings.  I thought it was terribly romantic.  So when I'm not wearing the Kaiya Eve pettiskirts, I hang them from the ceiling and walls to create colorful art!

I can't recommend them highly enough.

My little girl is just a couple of months old, pretty soon she'll be asking for one of these! I don't think I could wear one though, my husband would look at me cross-eyed and would pretend he doesn't know me in public!

Oh, come on, guys. I think this makes for an adorable skirt! Extra bonus points that this petticoat is not only cute, but thick enough to wear just by itself and not just under a dress or skirt.

Thanks for sharing.  Now I want one myself!

My theory is, the more a dress resembles puff pastry, the cuter it is. I'll take one in pink and one in sea foam green please! This looks like something to wear on a jaunt to Sugar Sweet Sunshine or maybe even Ici Ice Cream!
