"Maybe in physical terms I'm a little cuter than you, but you should be much more popular than I am."

"Maybe in physical terms I'm a little cuter than you, but you should be much more popular than I am."

I love the mannequin-like quality of this photo. All B's artistry.

"Maybe in physical terms I'm a little cuter than you, but you should be much more popular than I am."

"Maybe in physical terms I'm a little cuter than you, but you should be much more popular than I am."

This could be, quite possibly, the most perfect vintage blouse I've ever found, if not of all time. The most delicate design and cut-outs combined with light, soft fabric are what true love is made of.

"Maybe in physical terms I'm a little cuter than you, but you should be much more popular than I am."

"Maybe in physical terms I'm a little cuter than you, but you should be much more popular than I am."

"Maybe in physical terms I'm a little cuter than you, but you should be much more popular than I am."

Lack of HBO has left me embittered towards all "True Blood"-watchers right now, but thankfully "Last Days of Disco" was on, so whatever.

  1. GORGEOUS! That blouse truly is perfect. The setting is dreamy. And you have some seriously long and slender gams of which I am envious.

  2. Ok, this is like the most perfect outfit ever for summer. The blouse looks wonderfully soft. Vintage blouses are always the best. And your shorts are ace. Plus, those shoes. The color is to die for! Love everything about this, totally!

  9. God, girl, you are an effing FAWN, you are so beautiful and bambi-esque, like a deer I'd see in a forest. Wow, that sounds like an ESL student wrote it. But you know what I mean. I love how lovely and classy you look in everything, regardless of the objective qualities of the outfit (read: jean shorts do not often equal classy, and yet on you, they somehow do). Beautiful!

  19. From my post on Friday, I think the fact that you browse J Peterman adds such an interesting layer to your style. I also love to look at the old classic styles. Now, this blouse is perfection. I have just recently started browsing and buying clothes at thrift stores, trying to find vintage. One of the things on my list that I am looking for is a lacey cream or white blouse.
