Not so straight edge

You know what I love? When a piece of clothing holds my attention because of it's detail.  Embroidery, embellishment, or interesting lines.  Today I want to highlight great hem lines like a scalloped edge.  These enhancements add a subtle pinch of personalization and sophistication.

Gap, Scallop trim top, $49.50
The scallop overlap is so interesting on this top, I might add a belt to define the waist.

Start your leg lifts and lunges now ladies, this dress will make your limbs look miles long!

Pretty gold buttons.  Try this with black tights right now.

modcloth, going places heel, $38
Yes! Even shoes have great lines!  So feminine.

J Crew, Chiffon rufflotta, $21 (on sale)
This silk blouse is so soft.  I love it with black denim or a suit!

Adding interesting elements to normal pieces can give your look new life.  Details like scalloped edges or fringe or other embellishment makes your outfit stand out.  

Be fabulous today!

  3. I love scalops way more than ruffles cause they don't add volume to the body! Loved the nude dress, it's lovely!
