I love ruffles, but I think you have to be careful with them because they can be overdone (just like anything else, moderation is key). Ruffles add a little "oomph" and girliness to any outfit. This is something I wore to work on a casual friday. After looking at this picture, I can tell my jeans are a little too loose on me (and this picture is taken at a horrible angle and I look like I have the shortest legs). The only bad thing about loosing weight is that your clothes don't fit properly anymore.
