“Fashion is not for sissies.”  Michael Kors

So, Michael, what is fashion for?  Is fashion created so I’ll become uncomfortable with my wardrobe (black T’s and jeans), feel out of step, and buy things I really don’t need?  But …  Maybe my wardrobe could use a little excitement.  I went shopping for some fashionable tops.

What I found.  While I’d been living quietly in my black tops and jeans, fashion designers became enamored with ruffles.  Designers began putting ruffles along hems.  I gave up that look in elementary school.   But that wasn’t the end of ruffles.  Ruffles are now all over sleeves as a finishing touch.  Think about that.


Wearing ruffly sleeves around the house would be a good way to start a sleeve on fire while cooking.  I knew there was an upside to electric stoves.  I have a gas stove, so ruffly sleeves around my house are out.

Maybe ruffly sleeves would be wonderful for an evening out, dining at our favorite restaurant.  A real conversation starter, dragging ruffles through a delicious marinara sauce while you elegantly reach for a glass of wine.

Bottom line.  Ruffles on sleeves are definitely made for the movies.  No open fires, no sauces, and maybe big enough to cover your eyes during the scary scenes.  That could work.

Second bottom line.  I didn’t purchase a fashionable top.  When I go to the movies and something scary happens I cover my eyes with my eyelids.  They came with the head.  They’re very fashionable.
