Thinking about a dress too. I think I even like the dress better.

Eewwy. Bodies ain't shaped like bubbles! We shouldn't try to look like a bubble!

EXACTLY nam4anad. These are the principles I'm standing on, too. This is why I will NOT be going with the ankle boots or vests. Period. Did anybody read Ellen Barkin's interview in August Vogue? She had all these rules for dressing your age and with style. One of them cracked me up - if you wore it the first time, you're too old to wear it when it comes back in. :)

I wore a bubble skirt to my 8th grade dinner dance in 1988. Some of these are pretty cute but I don't think I can wear one. Just out of principle. First comes the bubble skirt, then the banana clip. it's followed by big puffy socks, and finally, that big plastic ring that we tucked the sides of our t-shirts through. No thanks!

Mandee - I think they were on the Fall collection runways, which we started seeing February, right?

Bubble skirts have been in for a while now, I think.

These would pretty much emphasize my hips and ass, like Popstar said. Not my ultimate goal.

I need something to downsize the buttocks... not make it appear bigger

Ehw. I don't know if I like these. I've seen this in cocktail dress form and I liked the bubble look. Not so much as a skirt.

Me no likely...these were around in the UK early this year and I never liked it then...not flattering at all.

I really only like the bubbles as cocktail dresses.
