Eva Blouse by The Seamstress of Bloomsbury
I am a great fan of the Eva blouse by The Seamstress of Bloomsbury. This is perhaps my most worn blouse since last year. Particularly, I like that it is a bow tie blouse. That’s why I’ve got it in two colours, creme and navy.
I believe this blouse is an awesome wardrobe staple. What is more, you don’t even have to be a vintage lady to wear this lovely blouse since it is so timeless. I love the wide puffy sleeves and the pretty smock stitching detail. To me, this is the perfect vintage inspired blouse!
Anyways, perhaps you’ve already read my post about the Lisa-Mae dress which is also a great retro staple in my wardrobe.
Styling the Eva Blouse
Today, I’d like to present a few fresh spring outfits with the Eva blouse. Hence, firstly I love to combine this creme-coloured blouse with a beige pencil skirt and a true vintage belt like in the picture below.
I think this is a perfect neutral spring outfit. What is more, I also like to wear this outfit with a classic brown coat on chilly spring days.
Of course, a black blazer always goes with this blouse and skirt as well. I guess a black fedora hat just adds a certain something to this outfit, no?
Eva Blouse and Tartan
I haven’t worn the navy blouse as often as the creme-coloured one to be honest. However, I feel that it is a great combo to wear it with a light-coloured cardigan like this one by Voodoo Vixen. For bottoms I suggest wearing a red tartan skirt or pants. I really love to combine red and blue since complementary colours always go nicely together.
Do you prefer vintage reproduction or thrifted fashion? I think my wardrobe predominantly consists of thrifted items. I am very happy with thrifted fashion though. For instance, I’ve also got the red tartan Laura Ashley skirt secondhand at an Oxfam shop last year. Thus, I can’t wait for the thrift shops to open again!
In a nutshell, I find the Eva blouse by The Seamstress of Bloomsbury a very versatile and chic piece. This vintage inspired blouse can be combined in numerous ways. Of course, I could come up with endless combos! How do you like to style a timeless blouse? Let me know in the comments below.
