Oui! Oui!

Fashion confession time: I'm not much of an Anthropologie girl.

While I admire the catalog and much of the assortment, the clothes just don't quite feel *me* when I actually touch them and try them on. Somehow, by not living up to the femininity of the store, I wind up feeling like a lesser gal.

Then along came the Grayscale Blouse.

Very French in feeling, this chiffon and lace delight is uber- flattering thanks to the combination of slimming vertical stripes, a deep v neckline, flutter sleeves and subtle draping.

I imagine it with dark skinny jeans, a nubby knee length cardigan and a delicate red ballet flat.
