Back Stateside, I have two silk blouses, both from previous Mayle seasons, which I had on constant rotation. I did not dare bring them with me to Cambodia, with all the dust and dirt in the air and shoddy washing machines. (My clothes took a serious beating in that country.)
Before I left Cambodia, I made two button-down blouses in silk crepe de chine- one in a dark evergreen and another in slate grey.
In Phnom Penh, I usually stop at my favorite one-off silk vendor in Toul Tumpong (amazing prints) and my fabric finds dictate what I make. This last trip, over the Christmas holiday, I asked my tailor to make a blouse in a dark rust color because I found two meters of this rich fabric.
After, I thought: stop; that's enough!
But since I've spotted this Everlane mustard silk blouse, I'm convinced of the absolute necessity of adding silk mustard to my wardrobe. I may actually have to buy this one.
The navy one would also be a good staple.
And given that I may likely be dressing up in cooler weather within the next month (maybe, though not decided yet), this may be a timely investment.
