This is such a beautiful thing – I wish it weren’t too big for me. But oh, well, I love it all the same. Not way old, because it’s poly satin, but the embroidery is to die for and it’s not completely colorfast so may not be too modern. I’m not always sure about the construction and fabric qualities of garments made overseas.
Anyway, what a gorgeous item to wear around the house and, also, out. I have a fantastic embroidered red silk jacket from China that I often wear with black pants when dressing up is the thing. Looks ab fab.
Tomorrow I’ll show a very recent discovery of the same genre, but older and more the style of Mata Hari. Something I’d been searching for for a long time . .. . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
