OK, so it's more like Monday afternoon/early evening eye candy. But who doesn't want a nice little pick-me-up come late Monday?
I don't know why I'm such a sucker for ruffles in the MMEC feature. I'm not a big ruffle-wearer in real life. Half the time I try them on and feel like a clown, and for some reason I'm convinced they make my face look round. (Which, even as I type it, I know is an absurd statement. But isn't it just the kind of advice you'd read in a woman's magazine? I mean, the other day I was leafing through one at the supermarket and ran across a handy sidebar on "How To Wear Bracelets After 40." I was utterly baffled. As far as I can tell, you still put them on your wrist.)
Anyway, enough about my personal mixed feelings on ruffles and onto to this purty, purty slice of goodness, McCall 7954. It manages to make the ruffles elegant instead of girly, don't you think? If I had a steady stream of elegant cocktail parties to attend, I might just try it out.
