The Ruffled Blouse

Ah! an escape from summer denim  – even if it’s for five minutes…

Blouse: Zara (bought last year). Lookalike from Free People.  Saw another Free People blouse that comes in loads of colors.  I like the boxy vibe on this Vince Camuto blouse.  Skirt: Mango (bought last year).   Boots: Modern Vice.  Hat: Worth and Worth.  Bag: Gypsy Vintage Nation. Similar vibe from Free People and Nordics.  The Saint Laurent suede Anita bag is cool for blowing the budget. Shades: Ray-Ban

I admit.  Ruffle on ruffle sounds a bit dodgy, but the material on ruffle skirts and/or ruffle blouses like these are thin enough for at least a try on.

The bag’s been around for donkey’s years. I got it from Martha at Gypsy Vintage Nation (read more about that sick place in this older blog post). She was actually wearing it and I literally took it off of her shoulder saying ‘Ok what is this??’ (after she confirmed that it’s for sale).   God knows where she finds half of her sh*t.  That place is addictive.  Great – I’ve just talked myself into visiting again.
