ooohh love that red dress in the third photo with the ruffle on the arms...super super gorgeous!!!

mariarose said...

There is something so flatteringly stylish about ruffles. They create a silhouette, they are gorgeous, textured, interesting, unique. I like them! Especially with killer heels!

Note to self; Must buy more with ruffles. I loved them all but especially the black dress with the white ruffles. Heaven! The photo's you track down are always incredible CC ~

Savvy Gal said...

oh i am the first today. : ) anyway, i love to see dramatic ruffle on the runway but moderation in real life. However, I would love to fine a big ruffle coat for winter this year still. : )

Erika said...

These ruffles are fierce! J'adore the gold ruffled frock in the second picture. And the Fendi Ruffle-Front Dress? To die for! :)

Such gorgeous eye candy in this post! Lately I've been loving the look of oversized, dramatic, almost architectural ruffles myself.

Gabbi said...

♥ Cara Mia ♥ said...

i think ruffles look great in moderation! even the skinniest models can look like they have a big booty if there are too many :)

i always love your themes cc! ♥

C.Elizabeth and Natalia said...

This is so romantic and feminine! For some reasons, it reminds me of all the times I've been to New York... how much I miss home! Fabulous fashion!

Carlotta said...

today I'm wearing ruffled skirt, I feel so girlie love ruffles!!

Stephanie Clayton said...

i'm not usually drawn to ruffles- maybe it's in consideration of my petite frame (excess fabric + small stature = bulk). or perhaps some concern about appearing too little-girly (again, small frame). but many of these, i would certainly wear!
terrific post as always, CC!

kpeach said...

that ruffled leather skirt is incredible!

The Haute-Shopper said...

The Boudoir. said...

GASP! great selection of pics..i love ruffles coz they look very flattering! what the brand of the third dress (the one shoulder red dress)??

Livelovelaugh_lux said...

Insanely cool! I can honestly say that I have never seen this many ruffles on one page, ever. The golden and red pieces (#2 and #3 are my favorite) - who are the designers? (it's hard to tell from the post). Also, it looks absolutely funky-fresh on a shoe and a purse. Love it! Thanks for such a well researched post and such a collection of fabulous photos.

the yellow dress is so fun!
