Happy New Year everyone! Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday. Now…we resume blogging posts. I seem to have amassed thrifted items over the last few months. Today I am showcasing a silk blouse bought two months ago but the sleeves were (what else) too long and I could not find the time to take it to my tailor. I may have to get it shortened some more.
Being silk, it floats nicely on the body. I like its classic rather than fitted shape (no clinging). Just love the rich colour. Reminds me of supple leather purses.
The pants are thrifted as well but the lining had been removed before I bought it. The wool blend is soft, not itchy, against the skin and I have a Spanx pant lining so I don't miss the lining. My tailor had to remove the cuff and use that to lengthen. Imagine that -- I actually had to ask my tailor not to shorten the hem but to make it longer!
Above, I belted over the blouse but have worn it tucked into an aubergine wool skirt.
Other than the taupe and black, I'd love to pair this blouse with other colours. What do you suggest?
