Fashion fact: there’s nothing nicer than a lace blouse, unless it’s a creamy vintage lace blouse from the 1960’s.

Welcome to Visible Monday. If you want to participate, it’s so easy: just go to the bottom of this post for the how-to. Link back to Not Dead Yet Style if you like – we’re on Easy Does It “rules” now!

My dear friend B gifted me this blouse, and I’m excited to find ways to wear it. I love the seaming! Not something I usually notice, but the blouse gives me a nice curve around the bust and waist. It’s completely sheer, so except for the runway, heh, I’ve got to layer something underneath. This thrifted Eileen Fisher dress does the trick.

I added a cowrie shell tie belt I’ve had for ages, although I think a proper waist-level belt might be better for proportions. My floral velvet booties and a turquoise stone cuff (similar) are the finishing touches. Hair is the Wiki by Ellen Wille; I enjoy the dark roots for a change.

  1. That blouse is such a fine classic, Patti. I’m also loving your floral velvet booties. Your hair is looking fabulous with the dark roots! xxx

  2. The seaming, the bust darts, and the cool fabric make this a great vintage piece. You look really great in this present!!

  3. The blouse is such a lovely vintage piece – I would have fallen for this too Patti. Wearing it over a dark colour really lets you see the intricate details, a great move! Love that we’re all getting our booties out again, these are gorgeous. Thanks for the link up.

  4. The lace blouse looks perfect over your dress, love it with the boots and cowrie shell belt , as others have said adds that vintage feel and makes it not so dressy.

  5. Oooh! I’m loving that blouse! Lucky lady!

    I think the belt looks great with it. It is a real 60’s vibe when it is lower on the waist/hips like that.

    Such a shame you won’t be sharing your runway look with us. Haha!


  6. Love the sheer lace blouse! What about a more cami looking top underneath, in a darker color, and then a blazer on top—-I’m so digging blazers lately!!!! Always love the velvet booties!

  7. Love the quip about the runway. Hahaha! But this blouse looks great over your dress too, and the cowrie belt really gives this a groovy ’60s boost. Niiiice. Thanks for the linkup.
