ABOUT THE BLOUSE: This is a really special piece I bought at a high-end boutique in Singapore. It's a 100% silk light jacket / blouse. The sleeves are constructed to have a slightly puffy bell shape. The big round buttons remind me of the Jackie O era. The silver embroidery along the bottom edge give this piece a slight Asian ethnic design look. I would pair it with a pair of capris or jeans on the bottom for a an classy but casual look, or dress it up with a pencil skirt for a night out at the opera (which I did when I wore it!).
MATERIAL: 100% silk. I was raised by a Chinese mother who was big on the quality of materials, so I buy a lot of 100% silk or cashmere clothes. Silk is so easy to wear and you can easily handwash it with shampoo in the sink. This piece is a particular type of silk that feels like organza, a little stiff and starchy so that it maintains the architectural construction of this jacket (the bell sleeves etc). It has a nice sheen to it, is fully lined, and looks very nice.
FIT: I'm 5"5, 118 lb, boyish figure. I wear a standard size 2/XS in most brands (I'm always a size 2/XS in BCBG), occasionally a size 0 in other brands. I wear size 25-26 jeans. This piece is a size "1" from Singapore. It's meant to have a boxy fit, so it works for me. It could probably work for someone slightly bigger than my size too.
WHAT ELSE DO YOU NEED TO KNOW? I've worn this jacket once, to the opera at Christmas. I love this piece but because I travel and move so frequently around the world I've decided to downsize my wardrobe this year. There are no signs of wear and tear. If you have any questions or requests, just message me. I'm new to Tradesy, made my first sale last month and really enjoyed getting to know the buyer a bit through Q&A messaging. I hope this lovely piece finds an appreciative new fashionista :)
