Not the Chips; Ruffles.

Yes, i am talking about ruffles; just not the chips..



I love them. I have even learnt to sew so I can sew them on practically everything. There have been lots of DIY projects, lot's of messy business I tell you.

and I only recently discovered I own this really pretty cream ruffled blouse.



These are my shoes. I am quite impressed with the result of my DIY project.

okay, i admit my inspiration was from the runway..

"Rrruffles have rrrridges."
Remember that commercial?
Unless you do live in the UK.
But you can watch AMTM there?
Or youtube.
Is there Britain's next Top Model?

I'm also planning on adding ruffles to an old shirt. I'll remove the sleeves and add ruffles.

I love that cream top of yours! Ruffles are great - the fact that they are so sheer makes them very romantic in their own way.

Miss Woo said...

Ruffles are very very sweet and definitely on my next shopping wish list..

What is the runway if not for inspiration? The ruffle top looks great, it looks like a more interesting bib dress when paired with the skirt. Very feminine!

SOMETHING_PICASSO said...

I absolutely LOVE ruffles, I always have and always will...

and in response to your comment, the top is a shirt, not a jacket. I buttoned it a different way so it looks kind of scrunched up, and I also cuffed the sleeves

Aisha said...

I'm totally into the luella geek chic look, i love everything about it, the ruffles, the glasses and of course, the lace-up booties (;

I like your ruffled top too :)
