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!

While this review makes it seem like this pettiskirt would be appropriate for grown women to wear, I'm afraid the photo of the woman wearing one undermines that point. She looks like "Whatever Happened to Baby Jane." But for the girls it's intended for, maybe it would be cute.

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!
