MY BALLERINA BABY // swirly, twirly angel’s face tutus

Angel's Face girls' tutus

From the moment she was old enough to pick her own clothes, Lil Sis has loved dressing up. But I don’t think I’ve ever seen her as excited as the moment she lifted off the top of her striped hat box, to reveal her new ANGEL’S FACE girl’s tutu.

As she lifted layers and layer of blush pink tulle, her puzzled expression changed to one of utter glee. ‘I LOVE it!‘ she squealed. ‘It’s so soft and swishy, and it’s got a beautiful ribbon!’

Then she unwrapped the second parcel, a black t-shirt made from silky soft jersey cotton. ‘Turn it around,’ I told her, and she literally gasped when she saw the iridescent gold sequinned wings on the back.

‘Oh my GOSH!’ she squealed, her hands a blur as she rushed to pull them on.

Lil Sis has an ‘old-fashioned’ beauty – pale skin, green eyes and strawberry blonde hair – so this deliciously fluffy girl’s tutu (which reminded me of flouncy Victorian petticoats) just looked so perfect on her. The satin ribbon actually tightens the waistband and would usually sit inside, but Lil Sis loved it so much she wanted it on show.

The t-shirt is soft and super comfortable, and has a whimsical rock chick feel that balances out the prettiness of the tutu; when the light catches the sequins they literally come alive in a sparkly rainbow of colours.

Lil Sis has insisted on wearing this outfit to every party and day out since, and every single time someone has come up and complimented the t-shirt, or asked where we got the skirt – including grown-ups who want to know if the girl’s tutu also comes in their size (it does – creator Keely Deininger added adult sizes after being inundated with similar enquiries!).

Angel’s Face tutus now come in nearly 30 different colours, and are available in boutiques around the world. The range also includes the most gorgeous tops, cardigans, leggings and jackets, and this autumn/winter they’re introducing a stunning military-style wool coat (seriously, they are to-die for – you can see a photo in my Q&A with Angel’s Face creator and mum-of-three, Keely Deininger).

What do you think of Lil Sis’s ‘ballerina chic’?

    I absolutely love this little tutu! My daughter was sent a similar one from another brand years ago and we made a punk rock music video with her in it. The complete flip side to your angelic daughter’s photos, lol! 🙂
