Insomniac Sale Picks: Silk Blouses

*In this late-night feature – which will run Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday of each week – I’ll gather up three fun items that are currently on sale online and share them with you! I would LOVE suggestions: Stylish wide-width pumps? Classic v-necked sweaters? Chandelier earrings? Petite dress slacks? What would you like to see featured?*

Pauline requested a few picks for silk blouses and shells – a la Olivia Pope – so here we go:

ann taylor shirred silk blouse

Shirred Silk Blouse – was $98, now $49
with code ANNGIFT

If we’re talking Olivia Pope, she tends more toward blouses without buttons than shirt-style, button-front silk tops. So I could totally see her sporting this one with some wide legged wool slacks. (In white, of course – which is one of your options! Also teal.) Available in sizes XXS – XXL, size availability varies by color. Also in petite sizes. (This plus-sized option has similar styling, albeit with short sleeves.)


Classiques Entier Ruffled Stretch Silk Blouse – was $178, now $106.80

I recommended this gorgeous blouse to an online style consult client just last week! The draped detail is very Olivia, and this is a great option for anyone who wants an untucked but finished look. Available in sizes XS – XL.


Nexx Silk Blouse – was $88, now $52.80

In case you prefer a classic camp shirt cut for your silk tops, here’s a slightly more affordable option. (This similar silk button-front from JCP is only $11.99, but considerably thinner and more sheer. You’re gonna pay for quality with real silk!) This longer length blouse is available in red, teal, and cobalt in sizes XS – XL. (This similar blouse is available in sizes 1X – 3X in red, cobalt, magenta, and more colors.)


Classiques Entier Shirred Silk Blend Jersey Top – was $118, now $70.80

Since shells can be surprisingly useful even in winter, here’s a gorgeous one that’s quite similar to our first pick, but sleeveless. This is a silk jersey blend, so not pure, but with a lovely drape and that subtle silky sheen. Available in purple and teal in sizes XS – XL. (This silk knit tee isn’t as colorful, but has a similar cut in sizes 1X – 3X.)

Other not-currently-on-sale resources for silk blouses and shells:

  1. Banana Republic – Dozens of options in a rainbow of colors. This one comes in four flavors of stripes! Eeee!
  2. White House Black Market – Charmeuse, sanded, and more. Love this tuxedo pleat blouse.
  3. Ann Taylor – Gorgeous options including prints like this classic animal print.
  4. And, of course, THRIFT STORES! Check pits, collars, and cuffs as silk can stain and wear, but it’s also timeless so silk blouses will always be thriftable. (¬†can help you locate stores near you.)

    I am a new reader who, after spending the past several years having kids, has realized that my sense of fashion has become woefully out of touch. I love this blog because it does a great job of making fashion accessable even to those of us who have no idea what we’re doing!

    I would love to see one of these for white or ivory blouses or sweaters that are NOT see-through.

      SO, so glad you’re enjoying the blog, Tammy! I’ve gotten lots of similar requests and am thinking I might do a longer post on wearing white and ivory without showing your undies. Stay tuned!

    Sally – thank you so much for featuring my request! I’m planning a little shopping ban come January, so I have just enough time to take advantage of these sales. The first two are definitely right up my alley!
