I was influenced by Alia’s Seeing Spots article and wore this Rag & Bone polka dot blouse silk blouse today. It has some amazing details. The polka-dots are graduated – they go from small to large. There are also horizontal panels of fabric sewn vertically to form the trumpet sleeves, and a sort of trumpet bodice. And yes, I can’t stop wearing this Michael Michael Kors Mongolian fur vest. I know it is last year’s trend, but it is also very practical. I wear it in the office when I am freezing and then I wear over a black wool coat when it is really cold for outdoors. I find myself throwing it into my tote bag like it is a sweater!
Sash: My own from a vintage shop. (I think it was actually a tie for the neck of a blouse.)
