I'm a fan of ruffles - especially on that Dior outfit. I just wish they didn't look so ridiculous on my curvy figure, hah.
Oh that's so cool that you're 5'10" as well haha! It's a nice height, I think. :)

ruffles have ridges. love ruffles. have many ruffled items.

Beyond the ruffles, a lot more black this Spring, which I enjoy.

Kristin Hjellegjerde said...

I would look ridiculous in the Anastase but the Ralph Lauren would make me feel like a glorious winner:)
