In this case ruffles cause ridges...

I will never grow tired of ruffles. I'm especially fond of ruffle tiered dresses. Reminds me of a wedding cake. Love the Giambattista Valli and the Marchesa is stunning-- it would be an interesting concept for a wedding dress.

Mrs. M. said...

i usually dont like ruffles a whole lot because they often come out as overly girly, but i love how some of these designers have encorporated it into their designs and made it a tad more tough. Great choices as always, Carrie!

AX80 said...

Ah, beautiful ruffles! My favorites were by far Stella McCartney because of her youthful springlike collection and Valentino because of the sheer sophistication on each design.
