Happy Wednesday Kittens!
It’s been so long since I’ve blogged, but I am so incredibly, excited to be back. I have decided to blog about one of my favorite trends of all time….BELL SLEEVES! I can honestly say that I am obsessed with embellished sleeves, but specifically bell sleeves. Bell sleeves originated in Japan around the year 794 and then made their way into the Western world during the Medieval era. So bell sleeves have literally been around for centuries. Of course nothing in fashion is exactly “new,” but designers will take a great look, revolutionize it, and once again it becomes all the rage. For example bell sleeves, were one of the hottest trends in the 1970’s and over the past few years they have shown they definitely have fashion staying power.
The great thing about a bell sleeve is that anyone of any age can wear this trend and look absolutely fabulous. It’s not only fierce and fabulous, but it’s also a fun look as well. In this post I am wearing a red Sweet Dirt knit mini dress featuring; long voluminous bell sleeves, which can be found here. It also comes in Sassy curves, sizes large-2XL in black, which can be found here. I chose to wear a pair of Steve Madden cognac wedges, a similar pair can be found here. I also chose to carry a feminine red mini purse from Nordstrom, accentuated with a scarf covered with lips. Mini bags are having such a moment right now. I never thought I would say this because I love my large purses, but I am completely captivated with these mini bags. They are so feminine, chic, fashion forward, and not to mention lighter to carry…lol. So if you’re on the fence about buying one, go for it! You can find a similar mini bag here.
I hope y’all enjoyed this post, and I hope that everyone has a fabulous week!
