I love ruffles. Especially vintage ruffles.

It's true - an artfully placed ruffle just makes me swoon. There is something sophisticated and girly about ruffles. From secretary blouses to lolita dresses, they just make the piece.

Today while photographing this dress I realized - probably 2 out of 3 women's pieces I buy have ruffles in one form or another. This lemon yellow dress is no exception. The dress itself might be considered plain: a simple trapeze or swing dress shape. But add two rows of ruffles at the yoke and a line of ruffle at the bottom hem, and Voila! We have yellowy goodness.
