Girls Bouffant Slips | Sophia's Style

Girls Petticoat Slips
Petticoat Slips
You know what word I never get to use?  Bouffant.  In fact, I don't think I've ever even said that word out loud, I only ever read it.  According to Wikipedia it's a hairstyle, "the bouffant was popular in Western culture in the 1960s, when it was created with the help of back-combing and large amounts of hair spray."  Wiki also says the the style is suspected to have originated in France, where it was developed because Marie Antoinette wanted her hair to look thicker.  Fascinating.  Girls bouffant slips are used for the purpose of making skirts look fuller.  They have without a doubt been around longer than Marie Antoinette's thin hair, so I kind of feel like the word "bouffant" should reference the slips before the hairdo.

Anyhow, enough rambling about word origins, the purpose of today's blog is for me to remind you that you might want to get petticoat slips to go with all the pretty Christmas dresses you'll be buying.  Sophia's Style dresses are made to be stunning as they are, but an extra fluffy skirt always looks extra adorable. 

In other news, did you know that as of this week, Sophia's Style is carrying a whole new line of absolutely gorgeous dresses by Sweetie Pie?  Just look at how pretty these dresses are!
