Lately, I've been obsessed with the idea of a libertine-style blouse and obtaining one of my own. This blouse had the most incredible embroidery on the tie, I just couldn't resist!  This outfit was from one of those crappy, cold, rainy (in May??!!) days, when I found myself scratching my head and wondering what the Hell I was going to wear. This is probably more of a Fall/Winter outfit, but whatever, if Mother Nature doesn't have to adhere to seasonal characteristics, than neither do I.

Of course you remember these bad boys that I've grown so fond of. DizzyMarie said they reminded her "deflated balloons" and I have to say she hit the nail on the head.

I love this blouse! It is perfect with the blazer! Why aren't you filling your pipe in a dimly let attic while you wait for inspiration to hit you so you can finish your manuscript? I can't wait to see how else you style it!

You look stylish and beautiful as ever, though the blouse gives me a bit of a headache. Not 100% convinced by the tie design. But that's the beauty of fashion, it's up for discussion, isn't it? The 'deflated' shoes are gorgeous!

I agree. I love the blouse. I need more libertine-style blouses in my closet.

Hannah said...

those shoes are insane - they kinda remind me of two ballet slippers sewn together, a pink ruffly one and a black one.

or maybe a deflated balloon is a better description...

I love a blouse with interest. You look great! I was thinking the blouse and blazer were a little remniscent of Betty Draper's riding ensemble.
