Object of (weekend) lust: me and her

These are just about the prettiest tutus I’ve ever seen. I quite fancy one myself (although I would look a bit mad, rather than adorable, sporting it). My little girl is an enthusiastic, if not entirely proficient dancer (unlike one of her friends, who is something of a mini rock god in the making. He even has the hair for it).

Something to be worn from day through to evening, autumn through winter into spring and summer, from 2013 to…You get the picture… If that dress doesn’t float your sartorial boat, then how about this one from By Malene Birger? Tapping nicely into the monochrome trend, it fits beautifully and has a rather chic black open back. The best thing? It is now £95, down from £225 in the sale…  …
