Big Girls’ Blouses – 3 Pretty Pieces that Pack A Punch

Written by Sally

The Statement Blouse seems to really be having a moment and it looks set to continue in 2017.

It’s an easy way to amp up your daily denim game and have a bit of a play.

Last year was all about the boho bell sleeve and Victoriana neckline , this year I am really loving these oversized details on these three blouses.

For some reason they remind me of one of my favourite films Napoleon Dynamite .. I do “puff” the  frill and bow in a way not too dissimilar to this..:)




Here is how I am wearing two statement Blouses thanks to – I wore a UK size 8 (I am usually a AU6/8).

Dunnes is like the Irish David Jones and it now delivers to Australia :)and their Savida range is pretty bang on. Thanks have to go to @in_my_size_and_in_the_sale for introducing me to the delightful work of Dunnes.


Frills Away 

This feels like I am wearing permanent wings .. which is always good.

It  reminds me of an outfit my mum had made in Thai silk in the 80s – and this top from one of my 1980s style icons – Alexis Carrington :)




styled with: I am wearing UK8,  old DIY cropped Lee jeans, Glitter fringed loafer Nana heels, Vintage belt and bandana choker for client visits, school pickups and ballet class with the kids. Then I added high heel mules for my birthday dinner out. 




Savida Blaze Frill Blouse

$48 (approx)

Bow’ Selecta 

I love this and not just because I hear Craig David in my head when I do that pun above .. but it is so giant and oversized it reminds me of Joan Crawford  in the 1930s or 1980s Lady Diana.





styled with: I am wearing UK8, thrifted Lee denim midi skirt, Vintage belt, glitter fringe loafer Granny heels, burgundy tote, giant pearl hoops, aviator sunglasses. Worn to corporate brand meetings, school drop-offs.
