Ruffles... are you loving them or all ruffled out?

Have you noticed that ruffles are appearing everywhere? Shirts, dresses, shoes, jewelry, home decor...the list goes on. I must say, I'm fond of ruffles in moderation.

The bedding above is from Anthropologie. You like?

I actually purchased the grey cardigan above. It's fun to wear with jeans. I like wearing it over a black or white top and pinning it together with a large vintage brooch. Adds a little glamour and pizazz.

Ruffles on gloves, pillows, handbags, boots. Is the trend going too far?

There is always room for a ruffled cake, don't you think?

How do you feel about ruffles? For those of you who don't live in the US, are ruffled items a hot trend in your neck of the woods as well?

Hi Lynn,

I tried that sweater on and LOVED it. They are getting one transferred from another store in my size. Yay!
Great minds think alike-hehe.

FUN ruffles... I want a piece of that cake to have with my café creme!
Yay Barb! You will love it!
I think they all look great! I can't do ruffles very much myself, but I do love the look this season on everyone. Love the grey skirt!!!

Now, that cake.... oh my... :)

I'm a girly girl, so I love ruffles... Just not too much of it. A little ruffled detail is always fabulous. I feel that trends are more and more global these days, so here in Norway we see exactly the same. :)

I love all the ruffled pieces that are available now and in recent seasons, especially in neutral/muted tones (I have the grey "cirrus" anthropologie bedding and I adore it)...the ruffled cake might just be my favorite of all those items though.

I could do with a ruffle or two...xv
I'm a bit yes/no when it comes to ruffles. As I get older, I think that less is more... I love the grey skirt and think that ruffles work best on the bottom half for me (old !!!!).
Love this post, especially the cake, Lynn and your grey cardigan. I also love the grey gloves....lovely, ruffley post. XXXX
