Ruffled Feathers

When I was a wee little thing, I couldn't get enough of girlie stuff. Barbies, jewelry, dresses, ponies and ruffles.

Then something happened around junior high. I hated all things girlie. Began wearing blue jeans, simplified my design sensibilities, and started listening to Jimi Hendrix.

None of those things have changed, except the ruffles part. I think I started my love affair again when I saw that fabulous episode of Sex and the City. You know the one. Where she spies a pair of Christian Louboutin ruffled shoes in the window and seductively whispers, "Hello Lover."

And WHO can forget that Versace Couture dress from the last episode...

I love a good ruffle.

And I love a good ruffle on top of another ruffle.

So here are my favorite finds that have not just one, but many beautiful, girlie ruffles. Embrace the girlie!

  1. I'm with you on ruffles...just gorgeous and so feminine! Love these pictures too!

    Best wishes,

  2. I like them when they are more tailored and sexy... not as much the kind that add lots of volume... those SATC shoes were really perfect!

  3. I just read an article about Ravishing Ruffles...apparently ruffles are 'IN' now. Check out pompominteriorsDOTcom, indiaroseDOTcom for beautiful ruffle-y linens and lulusDOTcom for clothing and accessories. Thanks for sharing your pics! Love 'em!
