Wishlist Wednesday: Tough Tulle

Wednesday, October 7, 2009

Tulle Mania!
Tulle Mania! by dreamsequinsblog

After fumbling around Polyvore, I finally completed my first set... just in time for Wishlist Wednesday. Today, I'm craving tulle pieces with a bit of toughness for contrast; think ballerina chic meets combat boots. Even though the weather is considerably cooler in New York, I find myself gravitating towards sheer pieces while doing my usual round of online shopping. Imagine layering tulle or mesh with thin jersey pieces, knit leggings and/or fluffy sweaters and chunky boots.

From left to right:
(1) Christopher Kane dress via mytheresa;
(2) Kris van Assche two tone tank via Oak;
(3) Velvet Angels booties via Oak;
(4) Rue du Mail applique detail dress via net-a-porter;
(5) Lanvin chain and tulle necklace via Kirna Zabete; and
(6) Quail silhouette top via Acrimony

Would you wear tulle, mesh or sheer pieces this Fall?
What's on your wishlist today?

I've been thinking about you so much lately with all this tulle flying around!

I've been dying to hear what you think of the Viktor & Rolf show! I'm just about to post on it again with the side and back views, it has seriously intrigued me!

The rue du Mail dress is such a great LBD! Paired with those booties - fierce indeed!

Intrinsically Florrie said...

That's a gorgeous set!
I'm not a winter girl at all, but it's given me some inspiration.
*sighs* I'm currently having a 'what to wear in the cold' panic, I need some trousers!!
Those booties are divine.

Tulle reminds me of ballet. So light and feminine. Love the dress on the far left, I think I could still wear that to the office.

Mads said...

Fab first polyvore! I love tulle but I don't wear much of it. I'd love to find a great tulle piece.

My wishlist is a pair of new flat suede black boots! I had to toss mine last year because I worth them to their sad demise.

Saskia said...

Tulle all the way for me! That first dress is adorable.

I'm wishing for my perfect pair of casual, timeless flat kneehigh boots...

Lovely collage in Polyvore. I really, really like/want those shoes. I'm with you on the Tulle, too. Who cares if it's getting cool outside?

Oh I would and will definitely wear tulle, mesh and sheer pieces.
I need a fabulous grey tulle skirt - but not a mini...so hard to find.

Oh, I'm all for the cheap alternatives. Thank you! Something fabulous at an affordable price makes it all the more appealing :) I will definitely check them out. I tried F21 but they're too short...hopefully UO will have them a bit longer. Thanks again :)

I am all about the tulle!

vitaMinn style said...

I would love to wear tulle, mesh or sheer if only this place observes a proper fall season. We seem to jump straight to winter, hehe.

Have you tried looklet.com? It's like polyvore but you can see the outfits on a model! ;)

LENORENEVERMORE said...

Oak is a dangerous zone click-click for me...I want them all...le sigh*
Great evening darling! xo*

xtinagirl said...

Hiihii. :) Probably see through things! I keep finding myself heading towards lace if anything.

And I signed up for Polyvore but I'm lagging on making sets hehe. I like yours though!

Oh if I had the mula for real CK. Man, I love his sheer pieces. Oh and I'll take those Velvet Angels heels, too please!

fashion herald said...

oh, yeah, the only way I could wear tulle, I love it!

nicole said...

great post title and post in general, v. inspiring. I love the girly tulle + biker edge combination. lots of great picks, it's hard to choose a favourite, but I def like that silhouette top. and glad to know I'm not the only one who fumbles around on polyvore lol, that thing can kill a lot of time when you're bored!

alexkeller said...

haven't tried polyvore - but i do like those booties! don't think i'll do any mesh (reminds me of scary boys in high school) but maybe a bit of tulle...

Chessa! said...

I ADORE that sequin dress. It's beautiful. I think that I would definitely wear mesh...not sure about the tulle on me but I love it. I love the shoe too...they are so urban and with the mesh, more feminine...I love that contrast.
