Lookbook: Puffed Sleeves

Lookbook: Puff, Puff the Magic Sleeves

I know we've all seen the puffy sleeve trend all over the place for a while now, but I don't think it's something I'm going to get tired of seeing. I like how people puff up their sleeves with soft ruffles and hard spiked edges. So when I saw this dress online I knew I had to have it for the sleeves alone. And the detail around the neckline definitely keeps this dress looking chic.

details
Both the necklace and the watch I picked up when I went vintage thrifting, and the knuckle ring is from F21. The headband is a ModCloth favorite from a giveaway. The shoes are Vera Wang.

I wore this to see the "And Then There Were None" play at a theater in Scottsdale (one of my fave books). We then went to Sapporo for some great sushi, ribs and bananas foster spring roll dessert.

What do you think of my puffed sleeves look?
Do you have any tops/dresses that showcase this trend?
