With all of those ruffles on Lanvin, Nina Ricci, Valentino, and Marchesa runway..I am in Ruffle haven. This look was completely inspired by the ruffles in my bathroom shower curtains (yes, I get my inspiration from the strangest places.) As much as I love this top..you dont want to look too frilly and girly, so here is my secret OPPOSITES ATTRACT…Really! When choosing a frilly/girly/dressy top balance it out with a pair of casual bad boy leather leggings and booties. When you dress yourself you always want too look balanced…you never want to look too over the top girly or beyond boho homeless or a plucked chicken dressed up in layers & layers of fur. It’s all about BALANCE!!! Rule of thumb: Casual top- pair it with dressy bottoms. Dressy top- pair it with casual bottoms…..OPPOSITES ATTRACT. ALWAYS!
Look at Olivia Palermo dressed in marchesa Spring 2011 Ruffles~ but see how she balanced out this over the top friliness with a pair of casual bad boy booties instead of your typical stilettos?
