What I Wore (Pussy Bow Blouses).

My mother used to wear the most fabulous cream, satin pussy bow blouse.

She teamed it with brown tweed flares, a  leather waistcoat and wedge heel sandals.

It was the late 70′s – maybe even 1981? – she had waist-length blonde hair and all the coolness of that era – she was the most glamourous thing I’d ever seen and I’ve loved that look ever since.

The Pussy Bow Blouse is iconic – Grace Kelly, Bianca Jagger, Kate Moss, Margaret Thatcher. It’s a very flattering silhouette that swings effortlessly between conservative and cool making it relevant for every woman’s closet.

I prefer this blouse in soft fabrics like chiffon, silk and satin (rather than cotton) in forever classic black or white.

Swap your t-shirt or button up for one of these to instantly chic up a pair of black pants or jeans.

    Snap! I am wearing one today too. I’ve had it for years but it took me a while to get the courage to wear it and not feel like Jane Fonda in 9 to 5.
