My latest flame

I've always been a terrible one for fads. Since last summer I have been very much taken with tie neck blouses and dresses.

Here are three vintage examples from the early 1960s. They tick all the boxes for me: tie neck, abstract print, murky colours, button-through. The middle one came first and I wore it backwards for a while: it wasn't until I noticed the darts that I realised the tie and buttons (on this one) should be at the back.

I do like those "pussy blow" blouses that have had a revival over the past couple of years, but nowhere near as much as I love these.
