Outfit of the Week 5: Ruffles A Go Go

Since starting the Outfit of the Week series, I find myself noticing different clothing styles everywhere I go.  I have even found that my style of dress has stepped up a notch from the usual baggy jeans style I have adopted over the past summer months.  Also, I am stepping away from wearing the same colors over and over and over again. My favorites are blue and green and pink and green.

However, the latter part of this week, I took a detour from baggy jeans and those two color combinations.  I wore above the knee Capri’s on Friday and Saturday and changed my color combinations to red and blue, and, black and goldish-yellow.  Seemingly, I did not break into a thousand pieces and I felt like air was coursing through my expanding style wings. Tonight, I am wearing the goldish-yellow top I wore on Saturday and my faded olive-green Capris. This week’s post, therefore,  is a bit of a style detour from my previous posts.

Ruffles are not only back in style, but they are the focal point of this lovely off-white vintage blouse with gold stripes. A lacey detailed pattern accentuates the ruffles at the neck, torso, and cuffs. You and the blouse will be a hit at the office…or at the club.  SOLD!
