The Year of the Dress: Yes, You Need a Puffy Mini Dress

The Year of the Dress: the Puffy Mini Dress- BloggerNotBillionaire

Call it the ‘Elle’ effect, but not her tanning line but instead her boho, short dress with boots look. The Elle I am talking about is Elle Ferguson of the ‘They All Hate Us’ fame but she isn’t the only one embracing this trend. Puffed sleeves, ruffles, lace and short hems. They are the perfect dresses for feeling slightly whimsical and empowered all at the same time. Blame Love Shack Fancy and their girly pieces for women of all ages. Or perhaps Zimmerman who also embraced the short hem and overtly feminine vibe. If you thought dresses like this were just for girls it’s time to think again.

As do cutout backs and done-to-there necklines. This is how designers have given the signal that these dresses are for the little girl in all of us, but we are women now. With price tags of several hundred dollars and up it’s hard to mistake these for anything but. Yet as you might expect from Blogger Not Billionaire I am here to share that the trend has trickled down and now you can get these fabulously fru fru dresses from all sorts of retailers, if you know where to look.
