On the (scalloped) edge of glory

27 Sep

I recently bought a scallop-edged blouse and I’m in love with it. It’s not unlike this one:

Scallop edging just makes me feel instantly more glamourous. It’s fancy without being OTT and it’s edgy (excuse the pun) enough to say you care about fashion without making you look like a fashion victim. I know scalloped edging has been around for ages and I’ve ventured into the non-straight edge world before (with shorts) but on a blouse, it’s a whole different kettle of (shell) fish.

Statement piece of the season, folks. Get involved. Jess Cartner Morley has some good advice here via The Guardian.

Oh, and I’m not sorry for all the puns.
