Hi lovelies, I hope you had a good weekend! I am sort of excited to get on with the new week, why you ask? Because it is Pay – Day on Friday my friends 😂. Yes, I can finally stop with the window shopping and walk into a shop like a boss knowing I can buy what I want but not really buying what I want. You know what I mean? Ha!!
So I’ve gotta ask this question, what are your thoughts on the return of puffy sleeves style this year? I mean, it was mostly known as a style halfway between the 80s and the Victorian era wasn’t it? So, what made it so popular back then and why the return now? to answer my own questions I felt it was something I had to try on for the answer to click!
I ordered this top a few weeks back and it was one of those blouses where it was either going to be a hit or miss as to what it looked like once it was on – I don’t know about you all, but it’s difficult for me to really go by how the model on the shopping site looks in anything! My body type is completely opposite from theirs, so it’s very hard to tell what an outfit would look like on a regular person, so I was interested to try it out!
My main attraction was the neckline which had silver rings at the side ( by the way doesn’t it look like earrings just waiting to be worn?) oh and of course the puffy arm which was slightly different to what was already out there!! My only disclaimer – I had to wear a belt to give it shape because I felt it needed that. But I do know there are other puff styles out there. It all depends on the Look you are going for, your outfit may look whimsical, feminine, and modern so you must select ones that fit your fashion preferences!
One more note – This top is currently on seasonal offer so although I missed it, you could still get your hands on it for a reasonable price.
Wishing you all a fabulous week
