I couldn´t believe my good fortune last week – half a dozen blouses, as well as shoes and dresses. These are somewhat rare finds, so I always do a happy dance!
Yes, they look very unremarkable in the photos, but I think you trust my snooping skills well enough to follow along while I explain what is so cool about them.
The blouse on the left is in a wonderful, semi-sheer and shimmery mid-century synthetic fabric that is just so pretty. It also has darts at the shoulders, front and back, that not only make the fit special but also are pretty details that can be seen. The little Peter Pan collar is very feminine and early ´60´s all the way!
On the right, a Levis shirt is just special in it´s casual sort of way for the fit and the ´60´s sportswear flavor that it will add to my high-waist blue jeans – a favorite everyday look when I´m at home.
Although you might think that “I could go to Walmart and buy shirts like that any time . . . .”, no, no, no. These jumped out at me from the midst of a crowded rack and they´ll do the same when I wear them. People who pay attention to fashion – even in a casual sort of way – can usually spot it when they see someone wearing something a little bit different, even if they don´t know why . . . . . . . . .
