You guys should know by now that I’m a little obsessed with bell sleeves. Ok, maybe a lot obsessed. I promise I’m not trying to be “punny” but this top really was a good find. When I first saw this top, it was love at first sight. We were walking through the mall and I spotted it from afar through the store window of Free People and had to go in and check it out.
The ruffle sleeves are pretty big so it isn’t for fair weather fans of this trend. It comes in several gorgeous colors and it combines 2 of my all time favorite trends, stripes and bell sleeves. It is fitted through the body and the sleeves and I would say it runs TTS. Since I typically prefer straighter cuts, I opted for a size small instead of my normal xs.
I actually didn’t buy it that first day I saw it in store and instantly regretted it. I thought, “I have enough bell sleeve tops” and “do I really need it?”. But it was one of those items that I just couldn’t stop thinking about. I’m pretty certain I must have “added to cart” half a dozen times before I actually pulled the trigger. It’s also currently on sale for just under $40.
Once I finally tried it on, I was instantly in love. It was more than just a “good find” it was a great find! It’s such a fun statement piece that I’ll be able to dress up or down. I actually ended up liking it more than I thought I would. This particular color is a little hard to find so I’ve linked up to a few retailers carrying it:
