Fashion, Flounces and Frills

Hello lovelies!!

So happy to be guest posting for Maya again:)  Thank you so much for letting me, dear! <3  We all hope and pray that you are having a safe, fun, and blessed time on your trip... Can't wait to hear all about it when you return!

So today, I felt like doing a very...fun post.  If any guys are reading this, you'll probably want to just x-out of this page right now, cuz...unless you happy to like love fashion, flounces and frills then...you will most likely not like this post ;)

I was having one of my super-girlie, all about dresses and pretty things moods today.  Maybe it was because of all the time I spent on Pinterest... ::guilty face:: Well, whatever it was, it got me wanting to do a post to share some of my finds!  And, I thought, what better place to do it than in a guest post on Efflorescene? ;)  So...here it goes, dears!


I thought it would be fairly appropriate to begin this post with a picture of someone Maya really loves ;)
Taylor Swift
Modeling in her advertisement for her own perfume line, Wonderstruck.
Just look at that dress...

I love the simple, elegant beauty of this dress...the whole photo, really. 
It looks like such a perfect dress to dance in.

Oh my goodness gracious!  I don't even know where I would wear this dress to, but...I would love to just be able to own it.
I love the sparkles on the one underlayer.

This dress is simple, unique and elegant.  I love the red sash.

This dress looks like it was made in layers...and then cut.  Or at least, part of it was.  I'm not a huge fan of the pale pink color.  I don't think I would ever wear a dress style like this...but I love the bottom half of it...oh and that bow at her waist.

 I love this outfit.  From the blouse...to the cardigan...to the jeans...to the necklace...

What an interesting photo, eh?  But I love the splash of yellow that her skirt gives to it...and also the very uniqueness of having swans - especially inside a house.  I love the low back of the top.  And the skirt reminds me of feathers.  The lighting is beautiful too.

Cute and ruffly.

Fairy skirt


I love the soft look of this blouse...the color...the sleeves...the buttons...

Wow.  Her hair...the dress...the light...

Girlie...frills... <3

 And ending with...my dream dress ^ 
Yes, people, I am determined that someday, one day...I will own this.

 So now that I have all of you drooling over all these pretty dresses, I would just like to say thank you for taking the time to read this post ;)  Not much of a read, I guess.  More of a look-see, these-are-beautiful, I-wish-that-was-mine list of clothes.  But anyway... ::shrugs:: still hope you enjoyed it.
