Angel by Design – Tale of a Prima Ballerina

By  | 

Every fashionista have their own shows, magazine, and designers they look up to and serve as an inspiration. If you’re a regular reader you would know I am a follower of Drop Dead Diva and Jane by Design which both have been very informative when it comes to fashion and style. Those shows are not really of the same story line but I do find a few resemblance.

Anyway, today my fashion post is highly inspired by the latter show. Hence the title “Angel by Design” Not much of an originality but it’s more like of a pun rather than just replicating. ;] As most of you are aware of, I have been sharing Fashion Ensembles to serve as an inspiration and have had the opportunity as well to share my reviews. Today is no different except for the fact that by far my ensemble for today is my favorite of all.

My ensemble consist of a Black long sleeves shirt, black tutu with red brocade sash made of tulle and has wrap waistband. I paired it with my red and black sequined platform shoes and a red derby hat. I totally love how this ensemble made me look like a Modern Prima Ballerina. This ensemble is proven to be an instant head turner and best for night parties, get together or even semi formal events. The skirt is detailed with Tulle fabric and has wrap waistband accented with a red floral brocade satin dropped waist and sash.

FTC: The black tutu was sent to me by Dale the Ellen for review purposes. I was not compensated for this review and this is honest opinion.

Verdict: Very impressed with the quality of the tutu skirt personally created by Dee Dee. The package arrived fast and had been well sealed in a bubble wrapped envelop. The skirt had been carefully folded and sealed in a plastic bag and wrapped in a ribbon for presentation. Totally love the service, quality and professionalism of the seller. There’s also a small note included in the package which I am very please. I will try to edit pictures of the packaging and will add it here when I get to do so.

Overall: 10/10 stars for everything and highly recommended to everyone. I would definitely say I am very happy and satisfied with the skirt and even the service.

Watch out for a video post update that I will be sharing soon for this lovely ensemble. xox
