Vintage Talbots secretary blouse $6 VV Boutique
Hard to discern the ties in a photo, hence my clever fingers-behind-the-ties photo trick.Banana-Republic-y. Luckily I had inadvertently followed BR's recommendation to pair my springy black and white print with a bold colour...
This is my "I'm secretary and I know it" we-all-know-who-holds-the-power expression.
Not just any bold colour, but the colour of the year in a H&M cardi that I've had for years because green has been my fave long before Pantone declared it worthy.
To let my secretary self steal the show, I kept my pants to simple black. We all know my black pants are not great, but I'm making do until VV Boutique provides me with a perfect replacement!
Green flats help. A little.
When I heard that black and white were the trendy colours for spring, I baulked. But this delicate print changed my mind...
A close up of my bow.
Note to self: practice tying bows; evaluate bunny ears vs. loop swoop & pull.
Additional note to self: once achieve the perfect bow, never ever ever untie.
I love the subtle gathering at the shoulders...
This is a lot of fabulousness for six dollars! VV Boutique, you're going to make me wear my latest favourite seventeen days in a row again, aren't you?!
