Fit to Print

Shirt: Vintage via Salvation Army, $5 // Pants: Old Navy, $10 // Shoes: Christian Siriano for Payless

The print of this top immediately caught my eye; it's like nothing I've seen before. Though I wasn't sure if I would actually wear it, I knew right away that it would be mine. Beyond the colorful geisha motif, I (predictably) fell in love with the large bow. I wasn't entirely sure how to syle it, so I went with a simple, menswear-inspired look that had me feeling like quite the quirky dandy.

the print on the blouse is too good. I'm telling you, I'm just 45minutes away and I want to shop with you.

And please don't think I'm a stalker. :)

officially obsessed with your blouse. i'm the worst when it comes to experimenting with anything other than basic neutrals. (you'll rarely catch me in anything other than blacks, greys and navys.) anyway, i love the idea of mixing a bold, hyper-feminine print with an otherwise minimalist, menswear-inspired look. you look incredible!

What a cute top!! I think it's an unspoken rule of all Salvation Armies that they MUST have at least one adorable, quirky-print top in their stores at all time! They always have the best things!

That blouse is amazing! I'm super sad to see that it's vintage and therefore there's probably zero chance of me getting one :-( I will just have to live vicariously through your photos. le sigh...

I love that blouse! I am a big fan of novelty prints, and I love when you can only tell that the design is something other than floral or abstract when you see the print up close.
When I visit my grandparents in Kansas I always enjoy hitting second hand shops- I remember being genuinely surprised by how bold and stylish some of the pieces were. Who would have thought mid western women would be so hip?
