Bubble Up

Bubble dresses are undeniably cute, but they’re also undeniably a challenge to wear. The very thin may be overwhelmed, the hippy are further accented by the very bubble itself. There is also a trendiness factor. Still, the bubble’s been around (in this incarnation) for at least a couple of years, so there could be more life for it. And besides, we at BeansTalk are all about wearing whatever you want, so long as it makes you feel good. And if a bubble tunic or dress makes you bubbly, you have our support.
