Anthropologie Gemma silk blouse, size Large
What is it? Gorgeous sleeveless silk shirt from Anthropologie. The brand is Gemma.
What's the label size? Large
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.
