Chasing Davies: Denim & Ruffle Inspiration

Denim & Ruffle Inspiration

Denim and Chambray shirts are making their way down the runway, into all sorts of stores and my closet.  A couple weeks ago, I got my knock-off J.Crew version of the Chambray shirt from Target at a steal of a deal.

This past year, ruffles quickly became a staple in my closet, and stores alike. A few months ago, I got an ivory ruffle-tiered skirt on sale from Target by Xhilaration.  Hung in my closet for awhile with a few ideas of how to wear it, but needing the "pieces" to style it, it waited.

The combination of these pieces has really taken off for Spring 2010.  On the Runway by D&G:
