Ruffles and pleats in New York City
By SheLikesRuffles on August 31, 2012
When we visited New York City, I had every intention of documenting my outfits during our stay. Having new and exciting scenery was definitely a draw, and since I was packing some of my favorite attire for the BlogHer conference, there were definitely some awesome items I wanted to share.
Ah, the best laid plans. Justin and I trekked down to street level to snap a few pictures on the first day of the conference, and after this point...I didn't bother. At least I was able to document one of my favorite new dresses!
I absolutely LOVE Antonio Melani dresses. They are consistently well-made, have fun styles/colors, and the sales I stumble upon at Dillards are killer! I picked up the Nellanne Ruffe Dress on clearance...score! The combination of ruffles and pleats really seemed perfect for me; I had to have it!
The bustle of New York City definitely gave Justin a challenge when it came to snapping photos of this particular outfit. People were constantly walking by, which was certainly a distraction. And talk about feeling slightly self-conscious! I knew there were a few puzzled expressions shooting my way. Oh well! Carry on!
I kept the details of my outfit relatively simple for this occasion: attending a convention where I was shaking hands, writing, and typing meant that I didn't want a lot of bulk hanging out on my wrists. So, one bracelet and a pair of killer heels were all I needed!

Do you like to wear some girly ruffles or pleats every once in a while?
