“Every time I look at you I think, ‘Woah, she looks like a peacock!’, but every other time it’s a good, oo! or a bad oo!” ~my sister Emma. ๐Ÿ˜›

I bought this shirt about a year ago, but I’ve only worn it twice since then. Posted here and here. It wasn’t very flattering, because it wasn’t fitted enough. So, this morning I fixed that in about 2 minutes and just took in the sides. Voila! A very-wearable shirt. I was concerned about sewing the ruffles, but they behaved perfectly and I had nothing to worry about. ๐Ÿ™‚

Ruffle shirt: Sears
Undershirt: Halftee
Skirt: Made by Emma! The first and only thing she’s ever sewn. ๐Ÿ˜›
Earrings: Walmart
Anklets: Walmart

I kind of wish the Halftee was white, to go with the white lace on the bottom of this skirt, but oh well. ๐Ÿ˜› My hair is naturally this stick-straight, but a little bit pouffier, so I just ran a quick flat-iron over it to tame it. ๐Ÿ™‚
I don’t know if these ruffle shirts are still in vogue- I know the ruffle skirts are (LOVE Ashley’s!)- but I like the playfulness of it still. Anyone been watching the trends? Am I wearing “soo last year”? I won’t be offended if you say yes. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Have a great Wednesday!

  1. I love your shirt! I have one almost exactly like it from Cleo, except it's white. I wear it nearly every Sunday. ๐Ÿ˜› I guess I don't really watch trends though.

  2. Wow, the skirt is beautiful. Emma should do more sewing. ๐Ÿ™‚ Do you know where the fabric is from?

    I don't watch trends either, so I'm afraid I can't be of much help. :p

  3. I love the shirt. The colors look great on you! And I don't think you're wearing last years styles. I've seen items of clothing very very similar to those in department stores where I live.

  4. I LOVE your shirt!!!!!! ๐Ÿ™‚ anything crazy I will totally try to pull off!! ๐Ÿ™‚ that shirt is definitely in style in my book!! ๐Ÿ˜‰ (I dont worry too much about the style anways cause it's ALWAYS changing!!! my moms tells me sometimes — hey we use to wear that kind of … when i was in high school! — thanks mom! lol!
