This dazzling 1940s Vogue blouse has elegant details galore. December 14, 2013 17:56


She paws through her blouses. She wants something different. Unusual. She's going to a Christmas party tomorrow, and the invitation specified "casual but elegant." Definitely open to interpretation. She interprets it to mean a pair of wide-legged jeans with a hint of the Forties look and a fabulous blouse. She pauses at a lilac silk blouse she made last year from Vogue 5658, circa 1940s. She loves the shoulder details: the bands and the gathers. Yes, this is the one.

And she'll wear it with her pink brooch designed by Schreiner of New York. The color of cotton candy and as sparkly as the Northern Star. She is going to look and feel fantastic. Absolutely.
