I love me some ruffles... some pleating, some gathering, some abstract fabric flower details... I don't know why, but everything is cuter with a little ruffle... that being said, I don't own too many ruffled things because gathered shoulders make me look like a linebacker; most ruffled skirts are somehow too toddler-ish, too skank-ish, or too hippie-ish; ruffled busts just make me look, erm, bustier; this dress is the one exception it seems...
