In the spring and summer, we call this blouse “The Big Tent” — but as we head into December, “Mother Ginger” seems more seasonally appropriate.
The Photographer is not a fan of this blouse, but he just doesn’t understand.
I love it. And I must say that I am loving it even more with this cropped top layered over it. So clever!
Why do I love this blouse?
I like its contrasts: the masculine pinstripe fabricated in an ultra-feminine New Look sweep. And it’s absurd yet flattering.
Have a fantastic weekend!

Not scary!! How anyone could find themselves anything but delighted by this is incomprehensible to me.
I love it too. Mother Ginger, ha,ha!
Awww! Photographer is occasionally nonplussed by Directrice’s fashion choices, but loves and adores her whatever she is wearing.
Love it. Cannot wait to hear how the masses on the Metro react to Mother Ginger.
Mother Ginger drew no reaction from her fellow Metro riders. I was wearing a knee-length coat over the ensemble, which was selected as a concession to safety. The coat keeps the blouse/dress locked down in crowded environments where there are sliding doors, escalators, and bicycles!
LOVE that blouse and vest combo. WOW!
Classy/Quirky – love it
I think it would be better with tights and ballet slippers and no where near stairs, doors, escalators, etc. love you!
I just love your blog, Directrice!
