Fashion trend ruffles and one shoulder

A hot fashion trend this year are ruffles. They look fabulous and can be beautifully incorporated into gorgeous dress, skirt or blouse designs as they are meant to upgrade the look, attracting attention. The new fashion designs fit for this 2010 spring summer season are meant to enhance femininity and ruffles manage to do so exactly.Ruffles look extraordinary, whether meant to be the main part of the design, or to emphasize certain details.
As they are an eye catching item, ruffles are usually an option for women who are not afraid of standing out of the crowd.

One-shoulder styling has been a popular trend for dresses and tops for a couple of years. This fashion occupies runways and our wardrobe solidly. And this year swimwear trends reflect this asymmetrical design too. We're seeing one-shoulder styling on both one-piece swimsuits and bikinis as well as on swimwear coverups.

 Calvin Klein
Jason Wu
Viktor & Rolf

I was inspired by these two hot trends to make this summer top:

My love for ruffles is shown on many of my creations:

Coffee with the girlz!

Last Thuersday I went downtown after work to meet the girls for coffee!The meeting was set by Maria from her blog and of course I couldn't miss it! Mania, a good friend was there too, with whom we wanted for months to meet, but had not managed to do it till then. She brought for all of us memoirs from her granddoughter's christening, hanmade of course by her:
Aren't they lovely?
Panagiota was there too, aka Olivetreegirl and I was very happy to mmet her in person!Very sweet!I hope we can meet again! Maria had brought her knitting and we admired her work!
After coffee we went to the shops looking for yarn and I finally found the fine cotton yarn for crocheting I was looking for!I bought 20 different colors!

and the very next day I started playing with it!These are my two first creations:
And finally I managed to take photos from a crochet halter top I finished long ago:
