I've always been a fan of ruffles as long as it's not overkilled (like some ruffled panties I've seen before. I could recall those shirts we now call "poet blouses" that have real puffy sleeves and ruffled cuffs. As for ruffled skirts, this would be perfect for Spring and Summer. Some of the lighter fabrics would be lovely for the warmer seasons. I'm not real sure if something like this can work for the Fall and Winter. These skirts look lovely.

*the tao pics are gorgeous of course...
but she is always following her own beat...she's not exactly a trendy monster...:p

more of a monster mash, I guess...not sure if its a trend either, I just got excited to post her ruffled skirts.

I love the idea of a ruffled skirt done maturely and worn with tights. I see myself marching to that drummer this fall...

Topshop maketh not a trend though they do try. It got popular here after a WAG was seen wearing Lanvin.

Ohh my bad I read it as shirt. I'm so stupid !

But people are wearing ruffled shirts because of her. The ruffled skirts seems to be from Topshop's take on Luella.

i've seen ruffled skirts at forever 21, too. in fact, i bought the f21 version but then returned it when i realized the style was a little too juvenile for me. but i am on the lookout for a more grown-up way of wearing it. the pics above are great inspiration.

there was someone who wore that skirt yesterday (i think) on the waywt thread. and fashiontoast posted her version on her blog. along with the original luella inspiration. here: http://www.fashiontoast.com/2008/04/to-luella-land.html

haha...ApRo....that;s too funny......


ah....thanks quimby...
totally not what i was picturing AT ALL....:p
so it seems to be a really brit thing...
coming from luella bartley and being perpetuated by topshop...
reminds me of the 'tea dress' craze that was happening for a moment there..
*maybe it still is, i don't know...


i agree with you quimby...
it's a very young look...especially in a ditzy floral print...
:p...

i'd still like to see more versions of it though.....
