Full Skirts

Is there a better springtime feeling than swishing around in a full skirt? Full skirts are great for everyone. They make you look and girly. If you are afraid of looking like you stepped out of a time machine, you can wear them without crinolines or fluffers. This one is adorable. I love that the print looks painted. $68 This is so casual and would be cute for a daytime date. I like the embroidery and the gathered waistband. $85 This is so girly. It has princess seams and the skirt is super full. $165 What do you love to wear in the spring?

Nice dresses :)
I love to wear my 70's dresses and my blouses and tunics :) And I'm into kimono jackets and suede leather coats from the 70's :)

Full skirts are wonderful things - I've got two, and some nice big petticoats to go under them ^^

I'd wear ALL of these!!! too bad they are so pricey :( I'm actually looking for a not too poofy crinoline to wear with my full skirts, any tips on where to get one?

Ah I love love love love these dresses!!! I'm pretty much forever obsessed with the full skirted look I even got my hands on a crinoline/petticoat!!! And I'm going to wear it to death this summer... mainly under skirts it's easier to make them modern,with the shirt.

Not sure I'd wear a tea-length full skirt for fear of being too Alice-in-Wonderland-esque, but it's definitely a cute look.

Oh, I just love these! They make me think of Beverly Cleary books - you know, like "Jean and Johnny," where the characters always wore frocks like this! :)

These dresses are so cute. I can't decide which one I like best! I have a floral dress with a big twirly skirt, and it always gives me a happy feeling, simply by wearing it. :)
