The first NAS I participated in I got this blouse which is still in my closet. It is a good example of the type Angie describes with gathers near the neck.
It has sleeves that fall just over the elbow and the sleeve is gathered at that point. I have not worn this blouse much because it is for cool weather. It is polyester which is warm on me and sheer enough to need an under layer which adds more insulation. I usually wear it over a cami or tank but have worn it over black silk or heattec long underwear tops in mid winter and sprayed warm.
This style works well under jackets or cardigans. It is still in my closet because I like the colors and pattern and how it works in fall weather.
Is the pussy bow looking too dated?
Today I am wearing it with black Paige Hoxton jeans from last year’s NAS and EF espadrilles. I later put a rust long cardi on top. Under it I am wearing a cotton black tank, my bag was the light tan in the blouse in an ostrich skin texture.
