Second Wave: Angelina Blouse [review]

I saw the posting on Fashion Planet from Second Wave Apparel for the Angelina blouse, and I adored the rouching so I had to try them up close and personal. Overall, I love these blouses but I do have a couple of minor issues.

The front of the top is gathered and closed with a row of tiny pearl buttons leading up to the mandarin style collar. The texture style of the fabric varies depending on which color of the rainbow you pick from the wide selection. Some colors are silky while others have a cottony matte look. (There is another color available called Strawberry but it has joined the other poor content victims of the SL inventory loss bug).

The blouse comes with three shirt layer options, but I would have LOVED if the jacket layer extended past the pants waistband. It’s getting cooler out and I feel the need to cover up. There are also some minor seam issues at the arms, but it’s perfect for layering, and at $L95 a piece, it’s a steal.

To deal with the slight strip of tummy skin, I chose a pair of highwaisted pants from Blaze, and today’s outfit was born.

I just kind of had a hankering for going earthy.
