"heirloom" blouse

"heirloom" blouse

When I bought this blouse, I didn't have too much time to ponder how well it fit or which side was front and which was back, but I knew I had to have it. I think if it hadn't "worked," I probably would have kept it anyway and just pretended it was a family heirloom from a bygone era.

  6. This blouse is so beautiful. I love all the little details, like the ruffles and the buttons. So perfect, I probably would have kept it as well. Wise choice.

  10. ACH! Again, BAM with the leather shorts. You are just stylin' those things like nobody's business! Except mine of course, because I have leather shorts and still cannot figure how to wear them as awesomely as you. Here, I gotta take some notes.

    Also, you are perfectly adorable.

    Also, I think you are wearing the shirt the correct way.

    Also, even if you weren't, you are totally killing this outfit. Seriously, you rock.

  17. I cant stop loving the mix of the sheer lace layers with the black leather, so no - definitely not sick of them!
    The more I see them, the more I want them!

    Loving your light in these shots, I wish it would stop raining so I could get some!

  18. *jawdrop* looking awesome and this is one loveable blouse!

  19. It's such a great look E. I think it'd be so easy for the top to look costume-y especially since you have fair skin and delicate features (can you tell I'm a little too into British lit?), but you manage to keep it modern by wearing it with leather shorts and the lace pumps. I dig it!
