I have not blogged much with regards to fashion apart from the fabulous Vintage clothing  of Timeless Vixen.  However, I do class some fashion as  “Art”, for me this would  include unique pieces using exquisite fabrics and detailing.  My latest discovery on fits perfectly into what I consider to be, “Fashion as Art”.

Tutus Chic is the name of an Etsy shop that designs and makes Ballet bodices, skirts and head pieces for Ballerinas. I want to add here, please don't stop reading because you think that these may not be of interest to you, as these beautiful garments have been designed so that they can be worn not just by the ballerina,  they can easily be dressed up or down and I think some of the bodices would look fantastic worn with jeans. Alternatively they could be worn with a smart or casual skirt or one of the beautiful  tutus such as the ones below.  A night out at the opera, party, a wedding, bridesmaids or bride, these beautiful tops and skirts are definitely not just for the ballerina.

The designer of these pieces is a former professional ballet dancer and has used her knowledge, creativity and desire to produce beautiful tutu’s, dream like tops and gorgeous headpieces.The owner of Tutus Chic says Degas paintings have also been an inspiration for her creations.  I have selected some gorgeous pieces I feel could be dressed down with jeans or worn to a special occasion with a beautiful skirt.

Victorian Ballerina Bodice - US$90 (The rose is available separately)
I think if you wanted a Victorian style wedding dress this bodice would be fabulous. It is boned and lined with a stretchy soft material.

These two designs would look great with Jeans.

Midnight Modern Day Aristocrat Tee Shirt - Black Viscose & Silk ruffles tee with Pearl & Rhinestone accent US$65.00

Aristocrat Tee Shirt in Earl Grey Tea tones - charcoal silk and cotton Tee - US$65.00

Venetian Lace Camisole - US$50 - with beautifully detailed scallop style lace edging, (also available in black as seen below)

A Night at the Opera - vintage style full skirt in black and silver tulle over bridal satin
 circle skirt US$145

Tutus Chic has many more designs including hair accessories, I would definitely recommend checking out her Etsy store for more styles, sizing and availability. Shipping is worldwide  If you click on these photos they will take you directly to the store, otherwise you can click on the link below:
