White Blouse - A Thousand Identities

THE HUE WHITE - When white sunlight enters snow, very little of the spectrum is absorbed; almost all of the light is reflected or scattered by the air and water molecules, so the snow appears to be the color of sunlight, white.
 
 
     

The white blouse can be light and floating, impeccable and austere, sumptuous and all-enveloping, tight and close-fitting. It rises up to frame the face. It sculpts the body by transforming itself into a second skin. Imputed with glamour and poetry, freedom and impetuousness, the prim white shirt turns out to have a thousand identities…

There is something refreshing and sophisticated about a crisp White Blouse thrown on for almost any occasion.  This staple can be worn with black pants, shorts, capris, jeans, skirts, under sweaters, over camisoles or for evening soiree's.  Add pearls and relish the classic and unique sparkle to any outfit during daily life.  The simple ensemble is always memorable. Wear a white blouse with a pencil skirt and command attention in the business arena. Or remember how Sharon Stone stole the red carpet at the 1998 Oscars wearing a snow white Gap blouse with a lavender Vera Wang skirt? Breathtaking!  In other words, a wardrobe requires a button down blouse constructed of the finest material.  Spend a little more for one in cotton, one that is fitted and for a silk top for special outings.  All will be worn over and over again.   More importantly, the White Blouse will stand the test of time and look sensational on a Forever Chic Style fashionista.

Which White Blouse to Purchase - Pray Tell?

Let's Begin - Pearls of Wisdom

 

 

 The Classic Audrey - Button Down




    



I.  Classic Cotton Button Down:   Be Audrey Hepburn memorable in a cotton blouse with a point-collar and lustrous white buttons along a raised placket.   A long shirttail hem provides great coverage.  Great with skinny jeans, as a cover up or tucked in for a boxy look while always pretty and perfect.

II.  Stretch Infused Fitted Button Down:  The white shirt with cotton and nylon/Lycra spandex adds stretch creating a fitted shape that is soft to touch along with a point-collar blouse. This piece can easily be worn out or and also tucked in highlighting a woman's silhouette.  Add pearls, scarf or wear alone for a business statement.

 III.  Silky and Refined:  A silk shirt is gorgeous and regal.  The satiny finish adds a dose of beauty to these satiny numbers.   Can be a little pricey but timeless.

"The most important thing to remember is that you can wear all the greatest clothes and all the greatest shoes, but you’ve got to have a good spirit on the inside. That’s what’s really going to make you look like you’re ready to rock the world."

— Alicia Keys

 
 

"Cool off in the heat with a white blouse! Shine with inner beauty and dare to be classic and memorable rather than trendy and forgotten.  All the world is a stage; dance with grace and love and light."

Flexible is a Choice

Spice of Life What does it take to being flexible on the road of life especially when change is at an all time high? Well, for many the simple task of walking will transform the body and mind thus ingraining a "flexible mindset".    Of course, put your phone away or keep on silent.  Allow yourself to hear your own thoughts and unleash your creative side or solve issues.   During the last year and a half, I have been walking with my husband and friends.  We have discovered new places, trails, wildlife, foliage, and forged friendships.  We have been accepting, evolving and creating new elements in our lives.  Along the journey, we have all strengthened our bodies and fueled our minds with conversation while admiring nature and embracing connection.  We became flexible with what we were able to do on a daily basis.    Throughout the Covid 19 pandemic, we have had an opportunity to get off the hamster wheel and adjust our lives accordingly.  For some, the adjustment was hard, and

Mom Jeans - Oh NO

  Just Say It Isn't So! "I wish I had invented blue jeans. They have expression, modesty, sex appeal, simplicity- all I hope for in my clothes." Yves Saint Laurent "Mom Jeans"   are making a powerful comeback in 2021.  I remember women wearing "Mom Jeans" in the day and am stunned that women are slipping down this road again.  The term "Mom Jeans" originated in the in the late 1980's and early 1990's. They were worn by mom's and considered unhip by the youth.  A friend of mine recently asked, "What exactly are Mom Jeans?"   Typically, "Mom Jeans" are higher waisted than the high waist style, often in a light denim wash, creating a longer and flatter hind end.  There is extra fabric throughout and can emphasize a pouch if you have one. The fit is snug at the waist, sometimes with a waist band with a loose and unfitted leg.  Think of pajama pants only with extra fabric at the top.  The next requirement is to
