Sheer Monday with Pearls

Monday, my old foe. How you vex me.
For a switch - and yes, you do have the right blog! - I'm not in head-to-toe colour. All neutrals, that's me. Well, for today anyway.

My new-to-me sheer kimono top gets its first outing, purchased just yesterday here.
I have on a taupe sweater tank underneath it (last worn here in February).
The skirt is an ultra-high-waisted one, last seen here in August 2013 with bare shoulders.

All day, I marveled at the blouse. I think the fabric must be a linen blend; it wrinkles like linen, and has that stiffness to it. Also, for you sewers, check out these gorgeous seams.
Not a serged or unfinished edge anywhere. Even the snap fasteners are covered! I haven't seen this kind of attention to detail since I owned my Prada blouse. I think this is definitely a high-end piece.

The stuff:
I liked how my groovy mod shoes went with this outfit. I last wore them in February with another cream/taupe outfit here.

Pearl-y bling:
The earrings are fake. The big mass of pearl-substance is not.

Blouse (no label, thrifted), skirt (Bedo, thrifted), sweater (Ellen Tracy, swap from Caro), shoes (Fugitive by Francesco Rossi), pendant (gift from Australia, from Mom), earrings (Aldo Accessories).
