{creme puffs + meringue}

Lately have been feeling festive and finding myself drawn to yards and yards of tulle -- there's just something about the wonderfully fine netting that's incredibly romantic and reminds me of daydreams and ballerinas and softly diffused light streaming through billowing curtains . . .

Those are beautiful! Whenever I see beautiful tulle dresses I think of weddings. I want a huge puffy dress on my wedding day, but it doesn't fit with the fact that I want to have a really small wedding.

For the life of me I can't remember where I originally found this, but I posted this on my stylemob http://image.stylemob.com/gallery2/main.php?g2_view=core.DownloadItem&g2_itemId=139084&g2_serialNumber=2 (hopefully that will work?)

Omg as soon as I saw the first picture I was like YAY my fav model and gorgeous tulle all in one picture. Just beautiful.
Tulle is something I adore just because it reminds me of my ballet days, and how feminine it is

Oh, I am so so with you. Love these looks. Vera Wang did a gorgeous tulle wedding gown two years ago that I adored. And anything Stam puts on is just ridiculous, let's face it. Damn that b. ;)

It's the black ribbon against the tulle that really makes it; at least in my book. Very festive photos.

oh wow - the second image is to die for! I am a massive fan of masses of tulle. My friend however got married two weeks ago, and she is testament to the fact you can have too much tulle. Her darling bridesmaids had to take to the tulle under her gown moments before they got into the car to the ceremony with scissors as she kept tripping on it - ahhhh, the things we do for fashion!!!
