I wore this jacquard Marc Jacobs jacket over my ruffle dress to work one day. This look was given the thumbs-up by my fashionista colleagues. The contrast of a conservative jacket with the femininity of the ruffles was a success. Who says you can't look professional, yet fun?
I like mixing both feminine and masculine pieces. In this outfit, the ruffles are subtle when paired with this Phillip Lim leather jacket. It's nice to stroll around Georgetown on a nice breezy evening wearing this. It'd be a good choice for a concert as well.
And here are a couple lovely ruffle dresses for your viewing/purchasing enjoyment . . .
Phillip Lim has been my #1 designer the last few years. I'm still insanely jealous that one of my friends had the opportunity to meet him at a NYC party last year. Lucky boy. I was in love with his latest spring collection, especially fond of the dress pictured below. I found a dress over at Anthropologie that I think is similar, and can be yours and mine for less than $100. . .
