Jitterbuggin blouse

Photobucket

A couple weeks ago I had the pleasure of meeting Kim, the gal behind the vintage reproduction brand Jitterbuggin. She gave me this new blouse to promote, and I was more than happy to! 

I usually stay away from blouses, I just hate how billowy they get after wearing them around a bit, they either fit in the bust and are too big at the waist, or the waist fits, and the bust is popping open. And finding tailored button front blouses is nearly impossible! 

But this one is a new favorite, it's button front, but tailored, so I don't have any "blouse issues". I've even worn it un-tucked it's so nicely finished and fitted. 

Not to mention the print is adorable :) Next time I go the local air museum, I know what I'm wearing! 

Though if you're more floral than aviation, there's the same blouse in a beautiful feedsack print.

Let jitterbuggin' know there are more ladies (myself included) willing to promote their brand as well. :::wink, wink::: LOL

Anyway, I love the novelty print. Where did she get it. I would love to use it myself someday.

Mabel said...

Novelty prints are the best. I just got a blouse that has horses all over it and it's great! I often have trouble with "that" button on blouses, too.

Colleen said...

Adorable. I hear you on the blouse issues. I love the look of button-ups but it is so difficult to find one that fits in chest and waist! I love how you're mixing the green and red here too.

CARRIE said...

The print on that blouse is so cute I can't stand it.

oh my god, THAT HAT!

Gabby said...

Your hats are always to die for and this one is no exception. How do you find your bakelite bracelets? Every time I come across any they are astronomically expensive. I refuse to pay $100 for just one bracelet. But looking at yours it might make me change my mind.
