Ruffles and silk

Valentino vintage silk blouse (similar)
Zara pumps

I can't believe I found this vintage Valentino silk blouse in perfect condition, only to spill coffee on it the first day I wear it. Like, they kept it mint for decades and I manage to ruin it in 30 minutes.. classic. Luckily I think I got the stain out, can't see it in the photos. It's so whimsical and feminine, I'm going to have to wear it with like a leather skirt next time to toughen it up a little.

  21. This look is just perfect. Love the ruffles with the wide-leg. Glad you were able to get the stain out. That's totally the reason I own very few expensive things. The bag is gorgeous!
