Goody Tutus

tutu du monde!

Despite your best efforts, it happened: Your bug-catching, mud-playing tomboy morphed into a little princess overnight.

May we present Tutu du Monde, the dreamy, vintage-looking playwear collection that delivers the royal frill she demands — with a dose of modern edge you’ll adore.

Hand-dyed in dusty pastels with sequin, bead, and feather details, the cotton and tulle creations conjure old-world magic (sparkle and shine) with new-world twists (fraying and fading). Pleasing our highnesses were the oversize floral applique on the Blossom tutu and the flowing skirt on the Galaxy dress.

We think a Bow top paired with a Fairy petticoat will likely inspire twirling that feels more rock ’n’ roll ballerina than dainty dancer.

Consider that your crowning achievement.

Available at Eggy, 8365 West Third Street, at South Kings Road (323-658-8882 or shopeggy.com); online at tutudumonde.com, $60-$150.
