I am having the hardest time finding out when the flounce orginated. One source states it has been around for centuries...
Another source states that it dates back to the roaring 1920s
Whenever it came about it is still a fun way to girlie up an outfit. I challenge you to notice people today who have added a little pizzaz to their outfit with a flounce. :)
|Lauren Conrad (my fashion idol) has a dress with a flounce on top AND on the bottom!|
|Alexander McQueen with an open shoulder flounce|
|Vera Wang knows how to flounce her metalic pink dress|
(that is skimpy enough to look like a nighty... who says you can't say goodnight while looking gorgeous?)
|And to show a flounce does not have to be at the bottom of a tiny dress Behnaz Sarafpour flounces up this eyelet top|
