Spring is in the air here at Monster Vintage headquarters: The blossoms are opening, the birds are migrating, and you can smell something blooming in the air. We dream of a time when we’ll see the sun for more than fifteen minutes. This blouse expresses that hope: It is for short-sleeve weather. Made for K-Mart in lightweight fabric, the print in varying intensities of red, yellow, blue, and just a little peach on white reminds us of a time in the not too far-off future when we will actually want to go outside. In classic late 1960’s/early 1970’s style, this blouse can be loosely belted and worn with shorts, pedal pushers, and even a light A-line skirt. Click here for fabric, sizing, and other information.
Are you a fan of the ruffles? Have a look at this piece here. It has one of the ruffliest accents I’ve ever laid eyes on. The ruffles are made of a fine, shirred, see-through fabric to really stand out from the blouse itself. For even more visual interest, the sleeves are done in a sheer fabric. If you’re looking for a distinctive, romantic, fun blouse for multiple occasions, look no further than here for more views and sizing information.
