Thrifted: Vintage Blouses

It wasn't until recently that I started going through shirts/blouses while thrifting... man, I was missing out!
1.  I am not sure if this lovely will ever actually be worn. I have put it on a couple of times and I can't get over the collar. I was going to remove it, but it's not attached like your basic collar so that is a no-go.

2.  I am thinking that this may have been some kind of uniform, but I don't care... it has cute detail. I am thinking that I will remove the pockets and shorten the length to make it easier to wear with skirts.

3.  I love plaids and this top just needs some cuffs added to the sleeves and it will be perfect.

4.  I love everything about this blouse and I can't wait for cooler weather so I can wear it!



  1. I think that first shirt's collar is what makes it so fabulous! Rock that collar, girl! :D

  2. I totally agree with you on number 2! In fact, if I saw that shirt I would totally buy it and to the exact same thing! Then tuck it into a high wasted skirt with a belt and pretend I was as awesome as Audrey Hepburn in Roman Holiday!

    Oddly enough I was thinking the other day how much I love blouses and never wear them. My mom and grandma ONLY wear blouses (seriously - not a single non-blouse top in those cupboards) and I think I just need to commit and become part of the blouse family...

  3. great finds! i just recently started looking at tops, too...i always just went for dresses before! maybe you could make that first one a lower v-neck style? i like it with the collar, though!

  4. Love that red one, it's beautiful. Why don't you put a button on the first shirt and wear it done up with a bow? Would be super cute!

  5. Thank you for your lovely words!! I think you ladies have given me the confidence to give the anchor shirt a try... I am really liking the button and bow idea!

  6. These shirts are perfect. And oh man I love the first shirt, collar and all!
