What an amazing response we had to the August One-Day Theme! I see you guys enjoyed Hats & Fascinators more than the July theme of Beads. I want to give you guys the themes you will enjoy the most, so I’ve decided to try doing a VOTE for the next one. Take a look at the top of the right-hand column and vote on your favorite option for the September theme. Don’t like any of the choices? Feel free to leave me a comment at any time (or send an e-mail using the Contact link above) with a new suggestion.
This is the blouse that made me an Arden B fan. I was super lucky to find it in my size AND on sale after seeing it in the window and knowing that I had to have it. It’s silk with just a touch of spandex for stretch, with chiffon ruffle panels down the front and chiffon cap sleeves. Best of all, it’s magenta. Not just pink, or even bright pink, but full-on mind-blowing magenta.
I recently made the magenta hair flowers from some leftovers I had in my craft room. I didn’t realize how perfectly they matched this top until today.
There are so many skirts that would go lovely with this blouse, but I chose a simple pencil skirt from Target. I don’t wear the blouse often, as I am always afraid I will damage it, but eventually I will get brave and try this with different bottoms!
PS: To my friend BettyZade: There is a lot of Fashion Tape holding this blouse together. ;-D You are not alone!!
