Ruffle Me Pretty

Ruffle Me Pretty

Ruffles are so timeless and fun. Small ruffles, big ruffles, cascading ruffles… they’re romantic and feminine and I adore them.

What I like most about ruffles is that they can be dressed up or down.  These are more flirty and sweet.

Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana showcased some seriously sexy tiered denim skirts in a playful homage to the Wild West this past spring.

    You are very adorable! 🙂

    I just bought my first ruffle skirt from NY & Company. I just need a very plain white top to wear it with. It’s going to be a look for this Summer indeed.

    I love ruffles. I think they can turn a boring outfit into a work of art sometimes. And if you’re working with shimmering fabrics the ruffles take on a whole new look when they catch the light.
