Obsession: silk blouses, lots of them.

 via Carnival

Back Stateside, I have two silk blouses, both from previous Mayle seasons, which I had on constant rotation.  I did not dare bring them with me to Cambodia, with all the dust and dirt in the air and shoddy washing machines. (My clothes took a serious beating in that country.)

Before I left Cambodia, I made two button-down blouses in silk crepe de chine- one in a dark evergreen and another in slate grey. 

In Phnom Penh, I usually stop at my favorite one-off silk vendor in Toul Tumpong (amazing prints) and my fabric finds dictate what I make.  This last trip, over the Christmas holiday, I asked my tailor to make a blouse in a dark rust color because I found two meters of this rich fabric.

After, I thought: stop; that's enough!

But since I've spotted this Everlane mustard silk blouse, I'm convinced of the absolute necessity of adding silk mustard to my wardrobe.  I may actually have to buy this one.

The navy one would also be a good staple.

And given that I may likely be dressing up in cooler weather within the next month (maybe, though not decided yet), this may be a timely investment.


  1. You know I think that color is amazing on you. Go for it!

  2. Ahh! I know, I think I should. I have an update. I will write to you!
