Subdued but Sensuous?


After Neon Week and a feline inspired outfit, my eyes need a little bit of a break. No wonder I have been drifting towards softer, uncomplicated outfits the past few days. Yesterday it was shorts and moccasins, today a simple skit and jacket combination.


I picked this blouse up at a thrift shop, or a clothing swap, or maybe even eBay.  I'm no thrift store doyenne; it's hard for me to look at a polyester 80's prom dress and think, "with a few snips and hems, this could look amazing!" Clearly, however, I have an eye for the potentially dowdy. There have been many times I have excitedly snatched up a garment only to hear Mr. BF say, "Are you dressing for The Crucible?" But it turns out that a long-sleeved blouse that ties at the neck can look...dare I say...subtly sexy? Especially once you know the fabric is champagne colored silk?


Maybe my idea of sexy is very different than others'...
