I think it's because i'm on a Harry Potter kick at the moment (don't ask, or if you do, you do so at your own peril. ) Anyway, I've noticed they're back in, yay! I had a few tops in the noughties that had drapey sleeves and I loved them. I've recently bought a black cardi (TU) a purple velvet dress and a green and a black top (Peacocks.) I'm planning on wearing the dress with long black socks and combat boots. Does anyone else like them? I will post links if anyone wants me to.
I can't make my mind up on the fluted sleeves. I think it depends on the wearers build. If petite, I personally think they look a bit silly. I've recently bypassed dresses I liked, until I saw the fluted sleeves and thought "nope, I'm too small for those bloody flappy sleeves, I'll look a twat!"
Ahhh I fucking hate fluted sleeves. They look so glamorous when you're on line shopping but in reality they just get in the way when you're doing the washing up and shovelling yoghurt into the baby. I can't wait for the fluted sleeve and cut out shoulder fad to pass!!!
I am presuming you have a far more glamorous life than me OP
Where have you been OP? You've only just noticed? I thought my navy jumper with fluted sleeves would look positively dated by now, I agree with others you cannot wear them if you need to eat, the sleeves are a right pain then!
I love the idea of them, but in reality I find they get in the way and I just become really irritated by them. It makes it really awkward putting a jacket or anything over the top as well. Would love the link for the purple dress though op. It sounds brilliant.
Sorry I've taken so long to reply, I've been off doing other stuff.
RNBrie I wish! I have 'going outside on days I can wear what I want' clothes, my work uniform, and nighties. I change into a nightie when I get home because I'm lazy and don't like messing up my clothes.
Botanic I had noticed it a bit in the summer, but what I saw was all frilly gingham and pastels. Yuck. Now it's things that are much more witchy looking and that makes me happy.
peoplewww.peacocks.co.uk/149124.html There you are, I've worn mine twice now and got compliments both times. I find it hides my tummy beautifully (the advice I got from someone to wear a belt with it was greeted with disdain.)
