When I first think of ruffled dresses, my mind travels back to the
1975 film The Stepford Wives. It was a throwback to the ’50s and
a clear declaration of femininity in a very strange way.
In this movie, I remember the submissive and happy robotic women -
blank-eyed, fabulously attired (with limited IQs) as replacements for real women.
Their wardrobes featured floppy hats, impeccable done makeup, and
most particularly richly ruffled blouses and dresses.
OMG! That's ME in this picture! Cut! Cut!
Ruffles also conjure up images of the southern belle Scarlett O'Hara played by
Vivien Leigh in the movie with Clark Gable called "Gone With the Wind"
And lest we not forget Carol Burnett's portrayal of Scarlett O'Hara
in Carol's 1960s comedy show. So, So funny!
However, the ruffle was also worn by royalty and revolutionaries
of both genders to imply strength and power.
Ruffles first came into existence during the 16th-century, when Spanish
soldiers wore several layers of clothing with ruffled sleeve ends.
The ruffle was also a sign of wealth during the 17th century. I don’t know
what they were thinking – they look like over-imbellished wedding cakes to me.
So I guess I am a bit bias or tainted when it comes to wearing ruffled dresses because
of their checkered history - portraying women most notably as walking confection.
However, this impeccably gorgeous WILD Fashion & Beauty So Wild Ruffle Dress
renews my faith in fashion once again. The ruffle’s true ability to
adapt positively rests in the inherent simplicity and beauty of this dress.
This dress earns my high marks in admiration and respect.
I love how this dress starts with it's ruffled neckline
then how it is beautifully applied and tiered again at its skirt.
Nice Wildrose has done it again, making this Dress one of my favorites. Her HUD driven
menu gives me 15 different colorful cheetah animal print textures.
It certainly is the Cat's Meow!
In search of love and perfection, Pepé Le Pew would say, "C'est simple, non?"
