I love button-up blouses, but these 36F puppies are hard to contain. The best I can hope for is an oversize fit to negate gappage. This isn't always possible, however.
This particular blouse is one I thrifted back in high school, and because of its adorable fern print, I will never ever get rid of it. It does have the issue of being a little small, however. I make up for it by wearing a minimizer bra and a shaping cami, but even then that little gap will show up if I move around too much.
Now, I could wear my super-flattening Enell bra under this blouse, but I have a feeling it would look like I was wearing a super-flattening sports bra. I could wear it opened an extra button with a tank underneath, but dammit, that's just not the look I'm going for. I'm afraid this is just one of those blouses that's going to gap a little sometimes.
Blouses and A-line/skater skirts are one of my main uniforms, and lucky me, I can get away with wearing them almost year-round. Adding boots give me a couple more months of wear, and adding tights--well, shit. I guess I can wear this uniform year-round. This skirt is especially warm since it's made of mostly wool and lined. AAAAAAND it has pockets! Every lady knows a well-placed pocket adds 70% more value to any skirt/dress/pant/short.
