Charity Shop silk polka dot blouse ❖ H&M skirt ❖ Ragtrader at Etsy cameo ring ❖ Black ribbon found in my ribbon box

This is what I wore one day last week. Sometimes the favourite pieces in my wardrobe can be the most unexpected. I found this blouse in a charity shop near my work for £3.50, 100% silk and in the most immaculate condition.

Love it! I just bought a similar blouse from H&M, but of course it wasn't 100% silk! I just love the look of polka dots on a frilly blouse :)

Gorgeous blouse. Actually I have one similar (well in cut kind of, not design) and this gives me an idea of how to wear it!
And 100% silk?! Nice find!

drollgirl said...

love that fab blouse. and give me your cameo ring. DO IT. i am mad for jewelry. always. please give it to me. first bossy, then pleading -- whichever tactic you prefer is fine by me, as long as i end up with the ring. :)

Winnie said...
