Landing No67: Tutuniun

Hellooo fashion travellers! It's a new day today sooo.... let's land in fashion!


Back again with another mommy-made garment! This gorgeous tutu!!! I'm so in love with this skirt! I feel like a fairy in it.. I mixed it with a leather jacket, stilettos and a gold top,which was my mom's when she was at my age.. Isn't it incredible??? I love vintage stuff..

It's been years since we last had a history lesson, so I'm gonna bring it back today.. Do you know why tutus are called like that? Well.... 

The word 'tutu' has its origins in the theatre audience. Those who bought cheaper tickets sat in a section located in the lower part of the theatre. 
This area gave the patrons sitting there a different view than the rest of the audience; they could often see under the ballerinas' skirts and see their bottoms. This led to a lot of talk and eventually, the French slang word for this part of the ballerina,cucu became 'tutu.

That's all for today.. Hope you enjoyed our flight! Love you! <3
