This spring I was obsessed with finding a simple sleeveless pink blouse. Etsy was not coming to the rescue- too much 80s- and I couldn't find anything in contemporary retail. I was starting to think I might have to make something myself (we're talking REAL desperation, I guess). But then I visited an incredible local vintage shop with a friend, and there it was- a bit girlier, with a pretty, embroidered collar. I had to remove some remarkably oversized sleeves, but I was left with a perfect little blouse with impeccable floral details.
I wore it the other day with the perfect green, perfect silk skirt- one of those holy grail items I've been seeking for a few years. My ebay 'saved search' for this amazing Madewell skirt came to the rescue over the winter, though I don't think any of its forays into the world have been photographically documented. (hey, so what else is new?) I love a swishy, swirly light silk skirt, so I took a breezy stroll at lunchtime to a nearby mid-century monument, our own little touch of Mies van der Rohe in Montreal, a sort-of mini Seagram building.
