Confessions of a Structure Junkie

Give me a circle skirt with crinoline underneath and be still my beating vintage heart. I don’t know what it is about flounce (and I’m talking 1950’s-prom-proportioned-skirt flounce), but I love it. Turns out, voluminous frocks aren’t just lock into the era of yacht-sized cars, aprons, rockabilly and martinis. Flounce makes a modern-day move thanks to neoprene. The fabric, which is basically what wetsuits are made of, can hold its own—literally. Case in point, my dress. I found it recently at a pre-Black Friday sale (yes, those exist) and just knew it had Basel written all over it. What can I say, I’m a sucker for structure and a skirt that stand out.
