Old Lady Blouses

April 29, 2011

It's kind of funny how when I go into a thrift store I find all these amazing blouses that were undoubtedly formerly worn my little old ladies.
What's your take on these 'not very updated' but so chic chemises?
Me? Can't get enough.

I love the look but I'm not sure it's right for my figure. I really like the one in the top left corner, though. The open neckline would flatter a fuller chest more, I think.

@Rebekah
Right! That's my favorite too.

I love these pussybow blouses! They are so adorable...

Some of them are very "sexy librarian," when paired with the right skirt, shoes and accessories.

I adore them! But I never seem to find one while thrifting that doesn't make me look a little schlumpy. I need to find one made for a really short little old lady, or buy new petite.

I love these sort of blouses. I would love to find more b/c they would make a great work attire. I never find things like this when I go to goodwill!

a couple of weeks ago i complimented my grandmother's sense of style and assured her these tops are in style again :)

Almost all the real vintage ones I find are not my size. I have to alter them in some way so that they look appropriate and modern.

I doubt my figure would work for them - cute on a slimmer frame, though. ^_^

I love the look. For my figure however, I would have to make some alterations.

love those blouses! I think a good way to wear them is to search for the sheer variety and wear a little camisole underneath - gets rid of the granny-ness.

If worn the right way, they're really adorable. I can't seem to pull them off though.
