This post is, once again, all about ME. Me me me me me. I have told this story often: I once had a J.Crew silk blouse that I loved. And I wore it and wore it and wore it, and then — when I was in public! At Jasmine Guillory’s book signing at The Ripped Bodice! At which Heather and I were doing the Q section of the Q&A! — one of the armpits DISINTEGRATED on me. (The women of The Ripped Bodice had a sewing kit so I managed to muddle through.) I was DISTRAUGHT. And then J.Crew released that alleged self-same silk blouse and I was DELIGHTED until it arrived and it was….SO shiny. As one of you said to me on Instagram, it looked like it came from a line inspired by The Greatest Showman. This was a tragedy. (I returned it, and then found the exact shirt I was looking for on Poshmark for $19 so there was ultimately a happy ending.) But the truth that I have to accept about myself is that I LOVE A SILK BLOUSE (or a silk-esque one). I wear so very, very many silk-ish button-down blouses with my jeans. Right now, my favorite one is this Everlane version (although I have it in a lovely blue that they’re not selling anymore), but there are MANY OPTIONS! I don’t know how I’ve managed to avoid buying this one that we so recently saw on the Duchess of Sussex, even. And look at all of these!
I’m seriously going to be noodling around the blouse section of Sezane’s website for the rest of the day. Don’t mind me.
FYI: GFY uses affiliate links where available, which means we get a tiny bonus if you get yourself something new. I can assure you that all shirts were personally chosen by me while I sat around drinking fizzy water and watching Riverdale. WTF is happening on Riverdale?!
