I recently had the pleasure of attending Julie Mollo's 2012 Collection Launch Party and it couldn't have been more fun! Her collection consisted of flirty circle skirts that swish in all the right ways and sexy sports bras embellished to perfection. The skirts were made up of things such as music notes, pac-man, sea creatures, skylines, and, best of all, bubbles!  With skirts like theses, balloons and doo-wop setting the mood, the atmosphere ...
