A few weeks back, my grandmother had a massive cleaning frenzy, which ended with her handing me a bag of clothes with instructions to go through it and keep whatever I wanted. In among a bunch of gorgeous scarves, there was this red ruffled top. Now, as a rule I don’t like ruffles. But the colour of this blouse and the button-down-the-back detail tickled my fancy, so I decided to keep it and wear it once to see if I like it.
I’m so pleased that I did:
I absolutely love the way this top looks when I wear it. I’m obsessed with billowy sleeves at the moment, so this is perfect for slaking my sartorial desires. The colour is perfect and it’s so cool and comfortable.

I asked my grandmother about this blouse, and she said that she bought it in the late 60’s from a little boutique. Apparently she used to wear it a lot, but she now feels that it’s too bright for her. Even though it’s seen a lot of wear, this blouse is in immaculate condition. I’m so pleased to have a grandmother who is as anal-retentive about proper clothes storage as I am.
