The concept of a blouse has always been intriguing to me. Feminine tops – delicate chiffons, satins and silks – have always been pieces I’ve admired but have written off for Future Alyssa. The “power woman” YSL pantsuit look is so good – Le Smoking is a classic for a reason. And YSL girls – aren’t they enchanting? Still, I’ve always tried to stay away because I always thought I couldn’t pull it off. Maybe I just wasn’t able to find the right revolutionary wardrobe piece ’til recently.

Came across this button-down blouse at ForMe and fell in love it. Perfect mix of a classic silhouette injected with a fun contemporary print – bows. Paired the top with a denim mini to show just how versatile it can be – I don’t have to look all conventional by pairing it with go-to fancy pants, clackety heels and a structured bag. Denims and Birks are enough to sustain it – the top brings enough life and injects more than enough personality anyway. (Seriously, even my mom wants¬†one for herself.)

BTW, that black bow that comes with the top isn’t attached to it so I think I may just have been blessed with the most versatile add on. Spot The Bow will be a favorite game soon. For this reason alone I deem the purchase completely justified.
