The Power of the TuTu. There is something about a cute Tutu skirt that can transform you and your evening. The moment that I put this skirt on, I felt like Carrie in “Sex in the City.” Although I was far from Paris, my evening was reminiscent of the show. The evening started with Hubby and I attending an Art gallery opening for Papillion Institute of Art in Leimert Park. The artwork was amazing, the gallery is beautiful and Michelle, the owner of the gallery is a sweetheart. It was a blessing to be able to support her opening. This is actually her second gallery, the first is located in Downtown, LA. Both addresses are listed below, we encourage you to visit as she always has amazing artists showcasing their work.
The Leimert Park area is in the renewal process, so there are new shops, cafes and galleries opening which is making this the place to be. After the gallery, we went out for drinks and dinner in Long Beach. It was so romantic to just spend time with hubby. It felt like we were in High school again. We talked, laughed and stared into each other eyes. The only thing missing was the Effiel tower in the distance as we kissed…
It’s funny how clothing can be so reminiscent of a time, era, or place. I think thats why we all have our favorite clothing items. I think this eShakti skirt is now my favorite piece that I have because the first time I wore it, I had an amazing evening. I love how our favorite clothing items can us back.
This skirt was so fun to wear. It’s very comfortable with a side zip panel and elastic on the sides to create a fitted waist. I also absolutely loved that it had POCKETS!!! I’m very much a girl about comfort and style, so I paired the skirt with a simple Old Navy tee, and y’all know I love my Old Navy Tees. They’re so versatile. I wore my Polka Dots heels from Payless, Statement necklace from Target, clutch and oh, did I mention that my belt was worn backwards…Per Hubby’s suggestion and I liked it!
