I don’t know how long the ruffle and gathered trend will last, but I do love the look. I couldn’t resist this one with so many pretty gathers and I bought it . . . on Amazon! I’ve been a fan of Amazon for years. When life gets busy, there’s nothing like the convenience of a store where you can order just about anything from the comfort of your couch and have it delivered within a couple of days. I’ve ordered everything from car parts to face serum and made some killer deals in the process.
Regarding this gathered top: why would I commit to a potentially short-lived trend? Well, this particular top is less than $20! You know I’ve said I’m okay spending more for classic pieces, but I prefer to look for low-cost options for trends. A gathered top at this price lets me do just that – experience the trend without breaking the bank.
There are so many details on this top it might get a little overwhelming in a bright color, especially on my 5’5″ frame. Choosing white allows the details to be interesting, not overpowering. The top also looks so crisp in white, like the fancy cousin of a classic button-down. And it’s a great foil for pops of a fun accent color like my red bag, shoes and lipstick. All in all, I’d have to say it’s a fun statement piece and one of my favorite trendy purchases.
I have to laugh. I had ordered this gathered top with the idea of talking about some of the great deals found on Amazon when my friend Catherine Grace O highlighted the store in her recent post here. Check out the glamorous pieces she found!
Do you have a favorite trend you’re wearing? If price is holding you back, have you checked out the great deals on Amazon?

I love the sleeves on all of the blouses nowadays, Helen!! And this one is no exception.
The funny thing is I think like you do….will this be around for long? So I always try to imagine how I could change it to keep it for longer. For example with this blouse, could I just remove the sleeves and have it be a sleeveless shirt?
Now that being said, I think like that, but I doubt I’d get around to doing it…ha ha!!!
