Details Are a Girl's Best Friend 5/11/10

5/11/2010

Yes, diamonds too. But details in clothing and accessories really turn a regular top and bottom into a memorable outfit.

So I went to Ross recently (I actually don't shop there often) and I bought some tops simply for their detailing. Not too certain about the quality (line-dry), but I truly loved the great prices!

B/W Striped Bow top: $8



Charcoal Crochet Back Top: $9

Excuse the pesky bra strap!

Ivory Rose Doll Top: $12

How do you all feel about details--especially extra frills and thrills on tops?

  3. I love little details! If something is a little too boring for me I'll usually add a brooch or something decorative. I really like the laced details.

    Sweet finds!
