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."

Books to Read - February 2021

  Read, Read, Read "We read to know we are not alone." C.S. Lewis Do you love to read? I do.  In fact, I always have a book on deck for my pleasure.  I wake up in the morning and carry my favorite novel downstairs.  It is how I start and end my day.  I am always reading.  It is my quintessential past time.  What do I like about the novels I chose?   I enjoy historical fiction with tales about the human condition.  Or I love stories told in a new place that I have never visited. Afterwards, I want to travel there and sink into the surroundings.  If I enjoy an author, I will read ALL  his or her books.  I tend to read books where the woman is the lead character.   I enjoy the strife, angst, and messiness of the characters' lives and how they prevail with strength, wisdom and love.  The struggle reminds me of the complexity of life and the beauty all in one snapshot.   Additionally, authors who share human drama, vivid details of the landscape and scenery plus poured their h

Happy Valentines Day 2021

  Love is in the Air!!!  Or is it Snow? "Where there is love there is life." Mahatma Gandi What Does Valentine's Day Mean to You?  It is snowing hard here in the Pacific Northwest.  We have eight inches, and it is still swirling down and covering everything.  The beauty of snow changing the landscape is a sight to behold.  Ever since I was a child, I have loved the snow.  We used to play endlessly in the streets building snowmen, having snowball fights, making snow angels, sledding and creating igloos. We did not go inside until we were cold, wet, and hungry.  We were always in the elements playing with friends or family members. The days of being a child without a care in the world are indeed cherished.  Today, I love the sound of kids playing in the snow.  It is wonderous.   Of course, Valentines Day 2021 for me is a winter wonderland.  Hopefully, we will continue to have power.  It remains to be seen.  Mother nature moves at its own pace and can never be accurately pr

Winter Fashion 2021

  The Chilly Artic "Good clothing is a passport to happiness." Yves Saint Laurent Yves St. Laurent Fashion Exhibit - Seattle Art Museum (2016) The winter of 2021 has been brutally cold across the country.  One for the ages. With snowstorms, bitter winds and ice, the frigid temperatures have seeped into everyone's bones.  Even places slated to be warm in February tend to be on the cooler side of the temperature gage.  Though, I must note that temps are slowly getting warmer in the sun infused states.  Beyond the weather, nerves remain flared as people struggle to get the vaccine, keep safe and bundled up all in one sweep.  The stress is at an all-time high.  It seems to me; we need to sit back and figure out how to be helpful to one another.  To be positive and appreciative for family and friends during these trying moments. We are closer to having everyone vaccinated and getting back to a semi-normal life.  In the meantime, we must be patient and diligent awhile longer. 

Pops of Color

  Spring is Coming Pixabay Photo - No Attribution Required "Colors are the smiles of nature." Leigh Hunt I think the time has come to sport bright colors and launch ourselves into Spring 2021.  Images of orange, pink, red, yellow and lime greens come to mind.  March is around the corner and soon the flowers will begin to open, blue skies may appear, and a fresh new world is about to burst forth.  I also get the strong sense that people are beginning to feel confident and resuming some of their favorite activities.  For instance, where I play tennis masked, several of my friends have recently come back.  Seeing their twinkling eyes and masked faces brings joy to my heart.
