I've Been Loving...

Picture from
Clearly from our dress choice for Julianne, I've been loving some ruffles.  She sorta has that personality, the "ruffley" kind of personality, I guess.  The opposite of that would be Zooey Deschanel's character in "Elf."  She probably wouldn't wear ruffles.  She's a little too cynical. All that to say, ruffles aren't for everyone.  But I love 'em, and here are some pieces that I like that are ruffley.

The Hunter Dixon version of this is much cuter, but who would ever pay $312 for a neon yellow/green skirt?  Well, not me.  So, this will have to work on, $24

This Express dress needs a more exciting belt, but I like the idea.  $69.50

Anthropologie top, $58, in a color called "brewed bean shell" (what the??!)

Some shopping notes...Ruffles are great on bottom if you have more of a boyish figure, because they will give you the illusion of curves.  If you already have the illusion of curves because you actually have curves, then stick to ruffles on top.

I've always thought Anthro color-namers were taking bong hits at work. Like that discount they'd get isn't enough!
