Ruffle Sleeve Blouse
All for Show.
Marie Antoinette loved all manner ofextravagant fashion (ruffles, especially), but her mother, the empress of Austria, was not having it. Once, upon receiving a portrait of her daughter dressed in magnificent finery, she wrote these chiding words: "As you know, I have always been of the opinion that fashions should be followed in moderation but should never be taken to extremes."
With all due respect, never say never, Empress.
Sometimes more actually is more. This blouse is one such example. It belongs front and center. In front of the cameras.
Never with the wallflowers. Never behind the scenes. Nowhere dark. Nowhere ordinary.
Seen, admired, envied. It's all for show.
All for Show Ruffle Sleeve Blouse (No. 5830). Fitted long-sleeve blouse in poly georgette with self-fabric ruffles down sleeves and front bodice. Exuberant rose print (not loud, only confident). V-neckline in front with mock collar that wraps to the back to form a sash that ties and drapes and flutters down your back. Front princess seams, back-shaping darts. Six self-covered buttons down center front. Lined in black crepe de chine. Imported.
