This incredible piece is courtesy of the Weardrobe Closet and it has given me a whole new perspective on the bubble hem. In the past, I haven't been so much a fan, but the added volume in the skirt gives this piece such an interesting shape, don't you think? The fabric is quite cool, as well. It's kind of a chambray. Needless to say, I am in love and will have to hope and pray I can find a similar creation on Topshop now.

Hi E! :] Thanks, my bestie bought it for my 21st. She's probably bought all my nice necklaces for me since we were 10.

The dress you're wearing is so cute. I like how it's tapered in the waist and has a little flounce. And the heels on your shoes are crazy. How do you walk in those? I feel like I'd be teetering.

I wish I could make the maxi a little more edgy but I don't know what else to do to it. It's so...blue. Love your inspiring style!

that dress is sickeningly cute. not many people pull off the bubble, but this is very successful! the stripes actually make the bubble hem work

and the shoes that made you drool are haider ackermann from the link on that post. they're in the sales section for almost 600 euros. actually, all the shoes in that post are in the sales section. but still out for reach for me. only in a dream ahaha

Wow! What a great dress. I've never been a fan of bubble hems either, but this one drapes so well. I also love how the stripes on the bodice angle in so perfectly.

That v-cut in your shoes is sick (in a good way). And I like the neckline on that dress.

chicfaced said...

before i read what you had written and had only seen the photos, i thought to myself "wow, not usually liking the bubble hem but this totally works!" very cute!

i tried on a bubble hem skirt at h&m this weekend and it made me look like i had an extra pair of hips....yikes.
