The Fringe Off / Ruffles

It's been a long while, but I'm back.

If you love something let if go, if it comes back to you, it was always yours.

I'm kicking off my return with a Fringe Off collab with these lovely ladies below - the only criteria of joining our 'style-offs' is that you rock a bold, sassy fringe.

Ruffles are the main inspiration, taking cues from the catwalk (think subtle Roksanda against extreme J.W. Anderson) and Zara's tempting window displays, each blogger has styled the theme in their own way showcasing a varied response.

The ruffle boldly announces the feminine touch to the outfit, subtle is something it fails at. There's something I love about vintage blouses and shirts, the cut is usually boxy and the shape exaggerates the shoulders. I've found my two favourite blouses from vintage stores and both feature ruffles. The blouse in this outfit folds out beautifully around the neck to present uniformed ruffles. I absoutely adored this blouse when I found it in my favourite vintage store/charity shop Retromania in Pimlico, London. Head there for one of a kind pieces for varied decades, all in the name of charity.
