I had to search all over this damn town for a white shirt that works! Being blessed/cursed with a large bust means that wearing anything with buttons down the front is a gamble. Inevitably, "the girls" burst through, incredible Hulk styles, exposing your undergarments, and turn a conservative look into something quite scandalous (and embarrassing). This particular problem is especially disappointing while hunting for an oversized button up blouse. Designers seem to have quite a different opinion on what 'oversized' means, because a lot of the time, what's supposed to fit large, just barely accommodates the bosom. Cue this lovely white button up shirt that I stumbled upon last month. It's roomy! It's crisp white! It's actually oversized on me! I'm a petite little bird! No really, there is something so liberating about wearing a menswear inspired top that neglects to show off my figure. When paired with my large glasses and a red lip colour, I truly feel comfortable and confident. I call this one my artist's blouse now because I feel like this is what a super cool artist would wear. I'm not one, so maybe that's way off, but maybe just let me have this one.
