(Post 1 of 4)
Fashion Tip learned :
Bow neck blouses look absolutely fabulous in any situation.
Life Lesson learned :
Do not walk alone at night in a city you are not familiar with.
A fresh faced Andy Garcia trying to mug poor Jessica!
Second, I am not sure if it is because this is the pilot, hence it is way longer than usual, but Jessica Fletcher wears about twenty (20!!) outfits in this episode!!
It would take me ages to go through all of them one by one, so I will have to pick and choose my favourites. :)
I will start from my first fashion discovery: bow neck blouses.
I must admit that I hardly knew they existed and never thought about wearing them myself… and yet Jessica wears them with such class and elegance that I am now determined to make them part of my wardrobe!
In this episode she wears many different ones, all very pretty:
A super-quick internet search reveals that this style is far from extinct and there are many choices for all pockets.
My personal suggestion is to head to Etsy, where you can find lots of beautiful vintage and handmade options, such as this whimsical polka dot blouse by seller EBV, this lovely brown shades stripes blouse by seller RareSpeciesVintage, this pretty checkered blouse by seller Pineapplemint or this classy white blouse by seller DollyTopsyVintage.
If you prefer to shop from high street brands, you are still spoiled for choice!
River Island offers this black polka dots blouse with a modern transparence twist, whilst Dorothy Perkins goes floral. House of Frasers chooses Tommy Hilfiger’s geometrical pattern and People Tree prefers scattered dashes.
Pretty check pattern is the choice for Oasis, whilst Debenhams goes for total green. And if it is the timeless white you are after, you can head to Bhs, House of Frasers or Veromoda, all within a more than reasonable budget.
