Oh, Sheer

Black velvet trousers Express, similar - Cream blouse Studio M , prettier one - Black heels Christian Siriano for Payless 

Black quilted bucket bag Love Moschino, almost identical  - Round gold drop earrings, very similar 

This cream sheer blouse is pre blog, its lightweight, has beautiful tiny pearl details on the sleeve and the hand of the fabric is so luxe. I think the fact that its so sheer that it needs to be worn with a tank underneath made it difficult for me to wear comfortably. These days it gets very little wear as its a bit snug but you know I like giving garments one last wear before they go. 

If you want to see this item's trajectory in my closet, it was first worn in 17.08.2009 when I layered it with a tube top and this is my personal favourite wear.  Later in 23.08.2010 with a pencil skirt and vest, in 12.10.2012 worn with black trousers and finally in 10.05.2015 worn with a vintage collar, and now that I look at it this could also be a favourite. 

It's just September 5th and with today's sheer blouse and gold tone ball earrings, I already have 8 closet edits. I am hoping to have at least 30 edits for this month... let's see how it goes.

Layering clothes something makes them uncomfortable to wear. You have the readjust the layers throughout the day. The outfit does look pretty on you and the beads are so nice. http://www.mrsqbeauty.com

You're always so good about clearing out your closet! I wish I had that willpower, haha. That blouse is so pretty though, love the sleeve detail! But I can see how it could be hard to wear comfortably so I understand why its going.

It's a very cool blouse - the sleeves are so on-trend right now - but if you're not feeling it, it's got to go. I agree with your favourite of the previous wears - the bustier looks great over it.

Oh it is a beautiful blouse, I can see why you kept it :)

I'm with you on the sheer pieces too - sometimes it's too hot or annoying to have to layer every time. I have very few sheer pieces in my wardrobe now.

You're doing such a good job with downsizing your wardrobe too!

Hope you are having a great weekend :)
