The Ruffle Blouse


Remember the pirate shirt from Seinfeld? Well this isn’t it. Adding a little bit of a costume effect to your outfit does not have to imply that you are putting an eye patch on and shipping off to sea. The rouched blouse can add that something extra to your outfit. From day wear, to office wear to evening wear, this is the fashion punch you are looking for.

This particular style is basic and fun. A garment that cinches at the waist is always your friend because it exemplifies your smallest area, your waist. In addition, the cinched wrist draws attention to another delicate feature. Are we seeing a thinning pattern here? The detail down the middle draws the eye to the center, also a slenderizing concept. Add the high collar which makes this shirt easy to pair with a vest or a blazer and all in all, you just got your perfect pirate shirt. Eat your heart out Seinfeld.

Lovely Long Leather Gloves

This is one of the most fabulous winter accessories a lady can own. Too often not enough attention is paid to the details and that is where you can really set yourself apart. This is also the most inexpensive way to change up the foundation pieces of your wardrobe. Buy the basic, yet beautifully constructed, winter coat and add your own style through different gloves, hats and scarves. Long gloves add a sexy throwback to a time when fashion was exquisite at all times. Not to mention that they actually keep you warmer because they cover your arms! Never ask again what to do with your 3/4 length sleeves. If it is not too chilly, add them to a blazer and tuck the sleeve in. Add a scarf and poof, you are a stand-out style icon! Never forget that fun neutral colors are always the more interesting choice. This bronze ruched glove is classic, funky and stylish all at the same time. Love them.
