I have to go to a casual dinner party after work, so I wanted to dress up a bit! Lauren and I found this silk blouse at a sample sale in Chicago back when we first started Second City Style, over 5 years ago. (I miss shopping with Lauren!) Anyway, I don’t know the designer because the label is a completely blank, pink square. Minimalism has its downfalls! This top is simply a large perfect square of silk folded as a triangle and sewn along one side, with an opening for the neck. I always thought I would follow it as a pattern and make another one like it, but still have not gotten around to it!
Top: Don’t know the brand! (no longer available). This Sachin + Babi One-Shoulder Silk Top, $290 has a similar look, and I want it.
