Tanesha Awasthi is the gorgeous plus size blogger from Girl with Curves who always has great hair and great clothes. She’s from the smaller end of the plus size spectrum and I’m sure many people look at her and don’t consider her plus size — she doesn’t routinely share her size because she feels that “size isn’t important when we are all built differently, different heights, etc”. She has been blogging since early 2011 and in 2013 she introduced her own clothing line, Tanesha Awasthi, recently changed to the same title of her blog “Shop Girl with Curves”. Her next collection doesn’t come out until Fall 2014 but her signature piece is a short tutu skirt — it is so sweet. At the moment in comes in black and crème blush for $145. It is available in sizes 12 to 24 (kind of unfortunate because I’m sure there are some size 26/28 women who’d love this too but from what I get from the comments she’s willing to work with other sizes in want). Both colors are beautiful but I think the black is my favorite.
I bring her up today because I got an email announcing international shipping rates. At $14.95, it is pretty reasonable.
You might think $145 is expensive for a tutu and definitely is at the higher end but I did a quick search around and most are in the $100 range with some even going as high as $200. There are also varying lengths. The cheaper prices tend to go with the more comical looking tutus that are really not meant to be worn as skirts rather than the romantic looking ones. If you are looking for longer or shorter options definitely check out Etsy, a simple search provides a bevy or results in all kinds of colors and lengths.
Are you brave enough to wear a tutu skirt?
