“It was my mom’s in the 80’s”Posted: April 3, 2013
Last week I said I’m not a pencil skirt kind of girl. Of course I then proceed to wear pencil skirts for three times in a week. In my defense, I wanted to wear this blouse but couldn’t figure out how else to style it. It was my mom’s (I know it sounds like I’m plundering her wardrobe, but trust me, she has plenty to spare), and I’ve taken the shoulder pads out, but it’s still too baggy and nothing looks right with it until I remembered this outfit worn by Romola Garai’s character in The Hour. Speaking of which, The Hour won’t be renewed for a third season. I don’t like it that much, but I’m still bummed out because the second season ends on such a cliffhanger. Anyway, the blouse – it might work with white skinny jeans or pants too (which I don’t have), but either way I’m going to have to get it taken it a little bit.
