For an illustration in a children's book about a librarian elf who lives in a tree in an invisible forest that is located just to the left of a famous tourist attraction, maybe.
I can't imagine anyone would want to see this on me.

Reminiscent of the "rosettes" Angela favored on Project Runway season 3. This is not a good thing.

Johanna said...

Well, I for one am a BIG FAN of rosettes (not Angela-style but *this* style) when they're done in a prim, sweet, orderly kind of way.

I see this blouse looking fantastic with a pair of black skinny trousers or a slim black pencil skirt. In other words, the majority of my below-the-belt wardrobe essentials.

Ah...nothing better than eating your Mum's homemade raspberry jam on toast in your jammies at 9:45 in the morning on a weekday!

Shall I watch Montel or Maury next? The options are limitless!

And as a follow-up, I just wanted to point out that the embellishments on this blouse are actually round-bows (as its name implies), NOT rosettes. My bad.

Am I the only one who thinks it's a little throwback, vintagey cute?

*Sigh*

love this blog said...

I like it okay but would never spend $300+ on it.

On a different subject, could you really get away with a bralette like those you've posted at right? Are they intended to be more decorative than functional? They're both so pretty to look at, but I feel like I would spend the entire day popping my boobs back into place!

It'd work well with you short funky hair and slim shoulders, but it would look like absolute sh*t on me.


I am coveting that Jean Yu bra, however...what is the exchange rate again?

Johanna said...

love this blog-

Yeah, I wouldn't drop $300+ on it either, but that's why it's in the "If I had a sugar daddy" section. If money weren't an object, you better believe I'd scoop this baby up!

As for bralettes, I only own two, both of which are similar to the Hanky Panky version (skinny band underneath the cups, skinny straps, no support, etc.) and both of which are clearly for decorating the girls for nights-in only.

brown rowergirl-

Ze Jean Yu, she iz very beautiful, no?

Back to Maury...paternity results are in!

best,
J

Stop watching Maury and give us something to read, you selfish brat! Honestly, I can't take much more of you-know-who's site. Reading her "writing" is like putting my brain in a Cuisinart.

I'm picturing this with a corn-cob pipe and 2 eyes made out of coal. haha - just kidding! xo

That's IT, elle! It does look very coal-on-snowman.

I'm glad you enjoy it, Johanna. It is, after all, your blog. :) But sometimes I just have to say "nay!"

In commercial breaks, any chance you could work on a post with stylish cold-weather essentials (hat, scarf, gloves) suggestions? My ears were freezing yesterday and I realised that my old wooly hat would look a little stupid with my high heels and my lovely new winter coat from Zara (both inspired by ASJINE...)

Johanna said...

anonymous 3:06-

excellent idea! I think I can put something together for y'all...

best,
J

anonymous 3:06 said...

Yay! I'm looking forward to it.

FYI-Zara at Metro Center has a red dress that is not too different from the Moon sheath dress. It's less than $100.
