Introducing…H&M’s rise. It’s sometimes hard to resist fast fashion. Understand my reasoning when you peruse the photos and have your eyes drawn to the centerpiece of the look, this bubblegum pink blouse with elaborate ruffle detailing on the top of the sleeves all the way down to the back. Whoever said ruffles were going out of style certainly did not lay their eyes on this shirt. Disclaimer, the pink is sold out on the website, but occasionally, a few sizes will re-appear (thanks to returns) if you refresh the page every day or so. If it’s not in your size, the blue one won’t kill! (It’s also on sale-just checked).
PS- I won’t deny that J.crew statement necklaces have lost their cachet in the market, but if styled correctly, you can make them look one-off. Whimsical but not wacky should be the credo here…The style I’m wearing is out of stock, unfortunately, as I got it at the beginning of the year. Choose one that doesn’t look too overdone, and for the love of god, please don’t ever go back to the 2012 bauble necklace and peplum top combo…
