    That’s a really lovely blouse… and the colours and plaid are wonderful (and perfectly matched!) – a great blouse for early autumn days.

    gorgeous!!! It reminds me of a blouse that Heidi Klum was wearing in a episode of project runway 3. Great job!

    I love the pairing of your top with the low-rise jeans. Most people wouldn’t spend the time matching the plaid, but it really paid off. Nice work!

    You matched it really well. Another successfully “remixed” JJ! It looks like mix between Ute and JJ, actually!
