Although I’ve been showing lots of blouses in collections, here’s another one that I’m posting by itself because it is so unique and fabulous. It’s from the ’40s and certainly not my best color, but I wear it anyway. Wouldn’t you?
Brown embroidered edging around the collar and yoke, front and back. Brown vintage plastic buttons, an elongated wing collar and some attitude.
I currently wear this with a calf-length print skirt or a pair of brown suede jeans. It would look fabulous with a pencil skirt, too.
There’s some Western – style feel to it, which was popular for a while during the Forties. Lots of fashions of that decade owe it all to the movies. This was also true in the ’30’s.
Well, another example of the sort of sporty-classic-business-like styles that often, but not exclusively, appeal to me. That is, when I don’t feel like a princess, or a rock star, or I’m not in need of a disguise . . . . . . . . . . . ..
