ring my bell-sleeve?

I get it.  It's sleeting ice pellets here in NYC and we are all tired of hearing about it.  But that doesn't stop me.  Lets discuss winter-wear, voluminous sleeves and Italian racing gloves but mainly just voluminous sleeves.  Here goes.
That is my face and here is my face again.
I know you can be overwhelmed, and you can be underwhelmed, but can you ever just be whelmed?  I think you can in Europe. 
Stuck the landing.

   
An angel sleeve is a long wide sleeve that hangs loose from the shoulder whereas a kimono sleeve is cut in one with the bodice in a wide sloping shape.  Clearly I am rocking both so be jealous and I'll wait. P.S., Courtesy of wikipedia, this is not in fact a bell sleeve at all, get smarter. Regardless, my party platform is voluminous sleeves for 2013 and basically, you don't have to ring my bell-sleeve (kimono, angel, batwing, dolman) ((e.g. French-cut, v-neck, ribbed, what have you)) but you should ring your own.

I thrifted this photo of the 1983 Thanksgiving Day parade which is adhered to a sizable wood panel.  It has a bunch of clowns (murder-y in a murder way) and guys in Sergio Tacchini (murder-y in a sexy way) divided only by police barricades.  Straight.  Street.

Urban Outfitters skirt as old as the hills, Beth Bowley cashmere sweater with unidentified voluminous sleeves, plastic puzzle piece bracelet from a pool-side sale at my grandmothers west palm beach condo.  does that count as "thrifted?" Stack off books scattered in the background.

Seriously, Follow on Bloglovin
