This shirt was a thrift purchase that I just had to have in spite of myself. It is a gorgeous silk shirt by St. John, and I believe it to be circa 80's, Dynasty era. Yes, I had to rip the shoulder pads out of it, and yes, it is a size larger than I wear (by 80's standards, making it more likely two sizes larger than I wear), but it was such a quality garment I just had to have it.
I find that wearing it in a kind of blousy, casual way works best. Because the cream silk material is rather shiny, I felt that to modernise the shirt I needed to pair it with edgier, more dressed-down pieces, lest it give off that kind of Falcon Crest, Lady of the Manor kind of vibe that is always a little too close for comfort when you have salt and pepper hair like mine. So I kept it simple, deconstructed, and added a few chunky pieces of fun jewellery to keep it light.
