Fluffy Ruffles

Just a small(ish) sampling of the vibrant costumes of Feria Fuengirola 2015.

TOO CUTE TO GET LOST AMONG THE RUFFLES.




PRACTICING HIS DANCE STEPS AS HE WALKED.











AND ONE LAST LOOK BEFORE MY WALK HOME.

  2. Amaaaaaaazing how many of these perfectly-fitted dresses are found in Spain... there must be a business in making these for women. They must all get one or two or three along the way in their lives. Beautiful!

      Most of the dresses are custom-made. If not, they're custom-altered. And many women get more than one or two or three every year. If a dress is re-worn from one festival to the next, it might be altered/adjusted so that it hardly resembles the original. Also, fashion trends change from one year to the next. So, they go in and out of style very quickly. For the women who care about being up-to-date, they would never wear the same dress another year.

      The variety is never-ending. I had to pull back significantly on the photos I wanted to post.

      And I especially love walking down city streets surrounded by them. Sevilla was an amazing place to experience that.

      So do I, but I could never pull off anything like I imagine. If you feel inspired, have at it!

  6. All those who are be-ruffled make me quite be-wildered. ;-)

    I really quite loved them all!

  7. Ruffles have ridges. Or not. Very nice shots. I won't let on which is my favorite...

      I'm have to again offer you my sympathy. Our minds tend to go in the same directions. I actually thought of finding an old Ruffles potato chips commercial.

      That's a very popular thing to do. And some of those duets are amazing. Check out the pair in this post (from our first feria in Sevilla in 2012): http://mitchellismoving.blogspot.com.es/2012/04/streets-of-our-fair-feria-city.html

      They are always available at our weekly flea markets, since so many women won't wear theirs more than once.
