Subtle Ruffles at Meridian

Today's guest post is by Katie, who stopped by Meridian on 6th Avenue between 35th and 36th Street.

I escaped the rain yesterday afternoon by ducking into Meridian. As Fashion Herald has mentioned before, Meridian is a great little boutique in the district with very enticing window displays. Unfortunately, I was so focused on getting inside to dry territory that I forgot to snap a photo from the street. Whoops!

(ed. note: I took a picture a couple weeks ago! I love both these looks)
If you're looking for spring or summer clothes adorned with good, subtle ruffles (as opposed to over the top, clown ruffles) Meridian has a number of dresses and tank tops you should check out. Inspired by a coral dress in the window, I grabbed this slightly different style for the fitting room ($44):

I'm a sucker for the two-tone dresses that you see everywhere right now, and the ruffles on the lower half give this one a fun edge ($74):

For those who have been working out all winter and can't wait to show off their toned backs, these floaty racerback tanks with ruffle details in the rear ($38) should do the trick to stir up envy in lazies like me who spent the winter eating chocolate to keep warm:

The grey one has a pretty bead/ruffle combo detail around the neckline. The pink top was also spotted in grey and blue.

And my last be-ruffled Meridian pick: another racerback tank with a thicker back panel and ruffles concentrated around the neckline. I tend to gravitate towards navy blue and would definitely wear this under a cardigan to the office when warm weather finally arrives.

Meridian Ladies Clothing, 977 6th Ave. between 35th & 36th St.
