Anthropologie Gemma silk blouse, size Large

What is it? Gorgeous sleeveless silk shirt from Anthropologie. The brand is Gemma.

What's the label size?

Measurements, please? chest
(taken across): 21", waist: 18" (with stretch)

What's it made of?
100% silk

Some details: In addition to the ruffles around the collar, there is a tie at the neck of this blouse. The bottom is elasticized to create a blousy effect at the waist. Looks nice with dark jeans or tucked into a straight skirt!

Why am I getting rid of this, you ask? This sleeveless shirt is so beautiful. I pined for it last spring, and splurged on it, thinking it would be a great piece to layer under a blazer or cardigan in my "professional" life. I don't own a blazer, and I have yet to wear this piece other than to try it on. I realized that while the print is TO DIE FOR (flowers masquerading as fireworks!) the tie is not my style.

Silk is an amazing material, but this shirt seems a little stressed at the seams. There is ONE spot under one of the arms where the seam is very, very slightly pulled. I just wanted to disclose this. I have not worn this blouse, so I'm guessing this is from dressing room try-on stress.

How much? $35, plus shipping.

Please feel free to contact me mindorific (at) yahoo (dot) com with any questions.
