Neck tie blouses: Mom Chic

A few weeks ago, I asked Facebook friends ideas for future fashion posts. My college friend, Gina, who now lives in LA, responded:

I hope your doing well! Do a post on the necktie blouses. I’m obsessed with them and just got one from elizabeth and james. It looks awesome under a jacket or alone.

Now, I’ll be honest, I’ve never worn necktie blouse. I’m not one for things around my neck that aren’t jewelry. But, considering Gina works for a rockin’ PR agency in BevHills and just spent Sunday at the Emmy’s, I can completely trust that Gina’s on to something with this look.

While I drooled over Gucci and saw blouses that would cost over $2000, I’ve selected a few faves, ranging from about $50 to (wow) $900. So, you know. Spend what you feel is necessary.

In fact. I might have just been influenced to order one a few.

    I just have to say, I can’t believe this look is back. My mom used to wear these ALL the time in the early eighties!

    I don’t think it’s a look I can pull off with the boobage but I haven’t given it a try yet. I am still having flashbacks. I do have to say, I like the more modern way of pairing them with casual jeans and jackets.
