We Heart Blouses!

We love a good blouse at RARE vintage.  We love them because they dress up a pair of jeans or our new favorite leather skirt from Zara (brilliant and sooo inexpensive!)  We love them because they are prim and sexy at the same time.  We love them because we can wear them year round.  I wore my favorite Yves Saint Laurent moon and stars blouse in Nantucket this summer with shorts and I am wearing it now with a pair of skinny jeans and Chloe boots.

Our new addition to RARE are these two great blouses from the 1980s.  The first is a drape waisted floral print on black silk Ungaro.  It will definitely remind you of this season's Balenciaga very Parisian, very feminine collection.

Our second blouse is a beautiful Jean-Louis Scherrer (sadly, some Jean Louis Scherrer can be a little scary) but this is a great piece.  We always try to choose pieces for RARE that are modern, youthful, classic and timeless - we leave the hideous and the dowdy out.  We wish that we could have photographed the fabric of this blouse better because it is particularly fine.  It also has the best sleeve of any blouse that we have ever seen - a slight pouf at the shoulder narrowing to the wrist.  It also has a great attached scarf.
