{new in} The Saint Laurent Multicolor Silk Patchwork Blouse

Welcome the newest member of my closet - the Saint Laurent patchwork blouse! Here's a quick recap on how it came to be in my possession:  I bought a pair of boots in Net-a-Porter's End of Season sale but they didn't fit and I had to return them.  After returning them I got a notification from eBay that an item I've wanted for months was relisted! It was listed for $599.99 but I got the seller to go down to $350! I had $25 in my PayPal account, $80 from a dress I returned at Christmas AND  some Christmas money from my Grandma that I used to cover the rest. According to Lyst, it retailed for $2390 at Saks, and that is possibly a sale price! So I think I got a pretty good deal!

I promised you the "full story" on this Saint Laurent blouse in my wardrobe update, so here we go!  I first came upon this top while searching street style blogs and seeing this photo of Barbara Martelo from April 2015. A dress version was on the Summer 2015 Men's collection runway and is equally beautiful but a little too flowy for me. The shirt version is the perfect way to inject some 1970's to your wardrobe without going full on hippie.

You may be thinking to yourself, that is an insanely printed shirt for someone who likes basic pieces. And you would be correct. But, the thing is, I've found that I love quirky basics. One of my favorite tops is very similar; a "basic" button up by Equipment, but it's bright pink and in a crazy print. Those of you who know me will be aware of the fact that I really don't like pink. But for some reason I love it. Sometimes you just can't explain attraction.  Since this blouse is also sheer, and in a crazy print, I think we have a bright future ahead!
