The lighting was awful when these shots were taken, therefore it is sort of off-color in the pictures. The real piece is a little bit more purplish. I love the print of this blouse but not the texture...wish it was made of silk instead (that will be perfect). But for the lovely price, I shouldn't require too much, right? ^_^ More importantly, I have already worn it multiple times (which does not happen very often in my wardrobe :P )ever since I got it last year. It easily matched with many shorts, pants, skirts and brought the retro element to the outfit meanwhile. I hope I will build more and more versatile pieces like this in my wardrobe.
