I have a new blouse and I want to wear it every single day. Do you ever fall in love with just one piece of clothing? I frequently do.
My New Blouse Story
This blouse and how I came to buy it has a little story attached to it…
I was in the hairdressers having my ‘balayage’ freshened up. As I am sure you all know, having your hair coloured takes time, you sit on your backside, drinking too much coffee and thinking of all the things you could be doing instead.
“Yes I am that woman at the hairdressers, the one who hogs the Vogues, so annoying I know but needs must…”
I decided to use this spare time for a little ‘research’ That is to say some Autumn winter 2017, outfit research. I gathered up a pile of Vogues. Yes I am that woman in the hairdressers, the one who hogs the Vogues, so annoying I know but needs must. Ho hum…
I spotted this blouse, talk about love at first sight. I was smitten, the colours, the neckline, the sleeves and it is a perfect example of the Victoriana trend too. It was from Asos
…now forgive me, but at this point my head was dripping over the sink and my phone was back at my seat so what to do? I couldn’t ask for someone to get my phone and take a quick pic, as I was just about to be rinsed off? So I surreptitiously ripped it out and hid it in my pocket, I know shock, horror, gasp! I felt like a naughty child and incredibly guilty too, I also felt sorry for the next reader , who will wonder what she is missing.
“…I surreptitiously ripped it out and hid it in my pocket…!”
The minute I got home, I fired up the laptop and went shopping, a moment later the blouse was in my cart. It arrived very quickly, came up a perfect size 12 and the sleeves were TDF (to die for!)
Now I just needed to work out a few outfit possibilities, you will be pleased to know a quick raid of my wardrobe produced quite a few. This is the first one.
I wanted to photograph more but it started raining and the wind was monstrously fierce, as you can see it almost took my hair off! I will be back with this blouse worn another way very soon.
