Materials

Shop at your local vintage or thrift store when you are not in hurry. Aim for at least thirty minutes to browse the stores complete selection of clothing.

Ignore the sizing label.

Structure

Check the construction of the blouse from the inside out. Turn the blouse inside out to make sure the seams are in tact. Look for the buttons; you are checking for repairs or replacement buttons.

Try

After you have selected some stain free silk or satin shirts, you must try them on. Pay attention to the color of the blouse. If you know that beige does not go well with your skin coloring, put the shirt back on the rack. Choose colors that compliment your skin tone.

Get a wide or stretch belt from the store and see how the shirt looks belted. Think about how the shirt would look when paired with a menswear inspired vest, pencil skirt, under a thin sweater, or under a sleeveless dress. Selecting one great silk top is better than buying five that are only acceptable.
