Monthly Theme: Vintage
I found this vintage silk blouse in an antique shop last fall... I wore it several times over the winter, but never put any photos of it my blog- so April's Monthly Theme is perfect!
I found it half-hidden, hung in the back of a little cubbyhole. What first attracted me was the sleeves; dramatic, draped affairs that moved like wings when I walked and immediately reminded me of bats. The high neckline has a wide embroidered insert over sheer fabric, and the blouse buttons to the left side, with an additional zipper up the back.
The tag on the inside had been almost completely removed, but due to the embroidery style for the size (6) and shoulder pads, I believe it's from the 80's.
Needless to say I think it's just fabulous, and it was only $20!
