I’m trying to add some new clothes to my Fall/Winter wear.

While doing a little bargain shopping on the clearance racks at Belks department store, I came across this over sized triple ruffle bell sleeve sweat shirt. Boy that's a mouth full, huh? I tried it on over my tshirt just to see how the sleeves felt. I wasn't real sure about it so I snapped a picture and sent it to my fashion expert (AKAdaughter). She wrote back to tell me that it looked a little bulky but it was ok. So I took her word and put it back on the rack. 

(Sorry for the poor quality photos. I think my iPhone lens was dirty or something. Doooough)

I continued to shop but I could not get that crazy sleeve shirt off my mind and it was less than 10.00 so I figured what the heck. I’m getting it. 
I thought it looked fun and would be great for the cold days in Winter. It’s now hanging in my closet ready to wear if we ever get any cold weather. It’s the middle of October and temperatures are still in the 70's and 80's.

I walked over to another rack and found another ruffled sleeve shirt on sale. I knew I wanted this one before I even tried it on. I love white shirts and the ruffles and lace added an extra flare to make this shirt fun. I can dress it up with a skirt or wear it with my jeans. 

I had no idea it suppose to tie in the front until I googled the link for it and saw the model wearing it in a knot. 

The next time I wore it, I tried tying it on the front but something about the buttons made it stick out like I was hiding a puppy under there, so I need to work with it and get it figured out. Two ways to wear a shirt is always fun. I also adore the the quarter length sleeves. This makes it comfortable at work while typing and hassle free at the dinner table.

  6. Hi Lisa,
    Both are great buys! I love the sweatshirt with the fun sleeves, it looks great. I thin it is sometimes good to listen to our gut and just go for it! The white blouse is very pretty, I love the sleeves and the lace detail. The puppy comment had me laugh! I am not the best at tucking or tying shirts!
    thanks for linking!

  7. They look great on you....I shopped for tops this week and nearly all had those kind of sleeves. I also tried to find some cute pull up jeans without all the tares but no luck. They loook great on younger gals but us older ones have enuf tears elsewhere. Also, a lot of tops in flowers fabric.....
