Once upon a time, there lived a beautiful queen named Devorah Rachel. She ruled her kingdom with humor and style. One day, she wanted to share her inspiration with her citizens so an idea was conceived. “I want to have some fun! Let my tutu travel around the kingdoms!” said the queen. Her wish is my command. 😀
The Queen & her tutu.
First stop ~ the kingdom of the mountains and the lakes.
My turn to style her majesty’s tutu. Crazy difficult! 😉
Tutu as a dress.
Thanks Devorah Rachel! This was challenging but fun!
How did I do? Be honest! 😆
Her majesty’s tutu is on its way to Heather@The Style Confessions.
I am linking up with Patti for Visible Monday.
Thank you for stopping by!

Amazing idea and you certainly styled it with grace and originality!
Thanks, Angie! ❤
Hi my dear! I got the tutu this week. So sorry I didn’t e-mail you. I sent a message to Rachel but forgot to add you to it. Sorry! It barely fits me – you and Rachel have tiny waists!!!!! But I’m looking forward to styling it and wearing it this weekend for some photos. Hopefully I’ll get a post up this week.
Oh, good! Can’t wait!
Wow Jeannie, you did a fantastic job styling these. Super sassy. ,… and the heels … oh my, divine! I’m in love
Thanks so much! We do have similar taste in shoes, don’t we? 😀
This is hardly a tutu. You look absolutely beautiful!!
Haha, but it WAS a tutu! My first and prob the last. Thank you, tho. 🙂
You both look regal. I love your spin on it as a dress- brilliant ballerina!
Thank you Bella!
These 2 versions are brilliant ! Beautiful tutu !
i just love this challenge!
you did a great job
I love both looks but wearing it as a dress is very original! I love the smart jacket you put with it too.
Thank you V!
My one and only time wearing a tutu! 😀
What a brilliant idea and a fantastic take on the tutu. You look fab. x
Thank you Vix!
Wow Jeannie. What a fun exercize. I think you did an amazing job with it. I especially like the tutu worn as a dress. But you are wearing it with the most amazing accessories there. Fabulous belt and jacket. And oh my gosh those shoes!!! Can’t wait to see how Heather styles it.
Yes, I can’t wait to see Heather’s take on it, too!
You look fabulous Jeannie, in both looks! I love the boots look especially… That is very cute, I especially liked it as a dress!
Thank you so much! 😀
It is kind of see-through, right? I only can imagine that it was difficult to come up with styling/outfit ideas, but you did it! I love both versions, but since I am more on the elegant side, I like the 2nd version, worn as a dress, better! I will check out the next stop of the tutu as well 🙂
It does have a shorter built-in slip that helped. My problem was that it was quite bulky.
I think it turned out okay. Yes, do check out Heather to see how she styles it.
What a GREAT idea! LOVE your tuttu styling! LOVE it as a dress, and your shoes are FAB – of course!

It was fun! Kinda like playing “dress up”….brings back so many childhood memories.
Amazing, as usual. Two really effortless and charming approaches. Boots are cute, but the last frame showing those shoes knocks me completely out. And you are so not in your fifties.
You sweet thing, you! Oh how I wish! 🙂
Jeannie, You did a fine job and I am sure the Queen is pleased. The tutu skirt/dress looks very at home on you and I too like it with denim!
Haha… yes, the queen! I do hope her majesty is proud. 😆
Clever idea, and great use of the tutu as a dress! i think you did very well! my daughter was always very good at re-purposing skirts as dresses! You rocked the challenge!
You are always so supportive! Thank you!
I’m NOT very creative so this challenge was difficult but fun. The things I do for blogging….
Both outfits are great. Love that skirt!
Thank you, Margaret! 🙂
love how you styled it as a dress with that gorgeous jacket! you look great!
Thank you SO much!
jeannie, both options are beautiful. my favourite is the tutu with the denim jacket and the comfy plaid blouse. but in both you look marvellous as you always do.
lieben gruß! sabine
Thank you, Sabine!
It’s interesting how some like it with denim and some as a dress. It was difficult coming up with both styles….I was just hoping they would look decent enough. I’ve never owned a tutu but it was fun!
What a wonderful job of styling the tutu. I especially like it as a dress. You always look so chic and the tutu is very chic on you.
You’re very sweet! Thank you!
LOVE the tutu as a dress!!! Love it both ways but that wqas GENIUS!!
Thanks Tamera! Genius? Moi? 😀
I can’t wait to receive the tutu Jeannie, and I’ve been pondering how to style it. I like your dress interpretation with the belt and the black coat.
Well, I can’t wait to see how you style it! 🙂
In a recent community 5K race, I saw a woman running with a short tutu over her spandex. It looked pretty cute! But not as stylish as you.
A tutu in a marathon? How funny!
I really am SO glad you’re okay.
AMAZING concept. You did soooooooooo well, in my opinion. The tutu is awesome… and you look rockin’ a s usual!
Thank you, Edita! 😀
It IS challenging to style a tutu at my age. I’ve seen some really chic ways but they were all too young for me to try.
Glad you approve!
What a fun idea! I like both and thought you did a nice job making each of them unexpected. And the shoes, as always, so yummy!
I have a problem….addicted to shoes. Nah, not a problem at all, just a bit obsessed. 😉
I love the edgy styling with the plaid shirt and the denim jacket and the boots! And what a fun thing to do.
You should join in the fun!! 🙂
You picked a great inspiration…she is great and you did an excellent job! Have a great week!
Thank you, Pam!
I hope you have a wonderful week as well!
Jeannie, you are brilliant!! I know you frequently say you’re not creative, but I MUST disagree!!! I love what you did with the tutu, in both outfits. It’s not easy, but you make it look amazing. This is a great fashion exercise, one we should all try. How do I join in the fun?
Awww…thank you so much, Jean!
Well, this was a challenge for me…..I spent hours trying to come up with decent looks. Glad you like them!
I think you SHOULD join the fun! Deborah is looking for more bloggers. Give her a shout….really. I would LOVE to see your creativity shine on this challenge!
JEANNIE!!!!! I was busting up the entire post!!! OMG, you totally pulled it off! I can’t believe it! I like it as a dress, looks really cute on your petite frame. And the plaid, CLASSIC!! So much Jeannie, you are the best and such a TROOPER! Jeannie for president! 🙂
Haha! Thank you Devorah! I’m glad you like the post!
I can’t wait to see your tutu travel around the country! It will be fun! 🙂
The tale of the traveling tutu! You look gorgeous with the tutu as both a skirt and a dress. Thanks for sharing your fab looks with Visible Monday.
Thank you so much, Patti!
great pictures! and as always you’re looking perfect! …
You did a fabulous job! The first style is fun and the second one is chic and elegant. Bravo madame!
Anne (Playing With Scarves)
I tried! 😀
What fun! I wish the tutu would find its way to my house. I would love to style it. Your photos and styling are wonderful beautiful lady.
Ooh I’m sure you’d be able to style it with a pizazz! You should contact Devorah. I’m sure she’d love for you to join in the fun. The tutu is on its way to Los Angeles as we speak. Your part of the world! I’m serious, you should!
I LOVE it! Okay realistically the dress option is probably the best but I’m kind of loving it long. Maybe it’s due to years of ballet but I have soft spot for tutus of any kind! (and as a bonus those heels are pure awesomeness!)
I would have asked you for help had I known you are a ballerina. 😀
Long time ago but I still love everything ballet!
I love the first outfit, the contrast between the plaid & denim, versus the delicate tutu is gorgeous. I’m not as crazy about the tutu as a dress, but you make anything look great. Those beautiful heels deserve a post of their own! 🙂
I’ve ordered a black tulle skirt, hoping it will work for every day work, and the Tulle and a Teacup series some of the style bloggers are doing. Ever since I’ve seen tulle skirts at Already Pretty and Wardrobe Oxygen, I am smitten!
Thank you Lynne!
Well, I can’t wait to see your black tulle skirt! I’m sure you’ll do it justice!
I think you did a WONDERFUL job. I love it as a dress. You look beautiful in everything you wear. I really enjoy all or your stylings; it looks very pretty the socks and boots too. A gorgeous piece. I’m going to have to try and follow its travels!
Lisa, thank you so much!
You are wonderful!
Yes, I can’t wait to see how Heather styles the tutu!
What a fun post! I like it best as a dress with the jacket. Have a great weekend! ~Patricia
It’s okay to have fun blogging…..right? This was fun!
Hope you and Jack had a wonderful weekend!
My favorite is the tutu as a dress! You look like a princess.
Haha a princess? I can dream….
You are fabulous!!!!
I like it as a dress best. Very stylish paired with the jacket and cute shoes!
Not something I’d wear but it was fun playing with a tutu!
Fun and fabulous!
It was fun!
That is very cute, I especially liked it as a dress!
Thanks Iiona! 🙂
Rachel really is a star, her outfits are spectacular. But honestly I prefer your style, less complicated and more popular. These are cute outfits that offer, maybe I like the first, for fun, with the tutu skirt and look like country style. The second is very elegant and fashion. You always guess right.
Thank you, Josep!
What a sweet thing to say.
It’s not something I would wear, but it was a fun challenge! 😀
I absolutely LOVE the tutu with the denim, flannel plaid, boots and heavy socks! I have saved that photo and am so going to copy it someday. I don’t have a tutu, but I’ve got a cream colored skirt. I need some good, heavy socks though. Seems like a weird thing NOT to have. I hear Target calling. 🙂
Lisa, this is so sweet! I can’t wait to see your version!
I really like the shoes and love the second look with the tutu the most : )
It’s a bit too short for me but would look great for someone young….like you! 🙂
You look fabulous Jeannie, in both looks! I love the boots look especially… never the less, the sandals in the other look are absolutely “to die for”! I think that in the future you may have to write a post which is entirely dedicated to all the amazing shoes you have…
Shoe post? Haha. Let me think about that…. 😉
How fun ..a traveling tutu. I love both styles! Love how you made a tutu weekend causal.
What I do for blogging! Haha
What a great concept of the traveling tutu. Love it! First off I loved how you put the plaid flannel shirt with it peeking below the denim. This shows the “real” side of you which I love. The knocked down version, the honest comfy side of you. And that’s what I like. Well, both sides really, but this casual side of you is my fav.
Isn’t it a fun idea?
I am a country girl at heart. 😀 Denim & tutu was kinda out there but I had fun putting it together.
Yes, I do prefer casual.
What fun! Love it! And your shoes—fabulous!
It was fun! 😀
So nice and so different! And always with the BEST of footwear!
I DO love shoes….I confess!
Love both looks. Maybe the skirt, boots, and jean jacket better, only because I’d be able to wear that. I told you the heels, while I love that look, are hard for me to do. But you sure do them great!
It was fun to create the looks but it isn’t something I’d wear in public. 😀
How fun and you did it justice 🙂 Not sure if I could wear that length.. maybe shorter for me w/ leggings? Great idea!
Have a nice weekend.
It was more difficult than I thought. But, it was fun!
