1970s YSL Silk Check Secratary Blouse

This luxe silk blouse is a classic from Yves Saint Laurent. Its really a fab color - a combination of a soft purple mixed with a taupe - all done in silk. It has that classic YSL tie at the neck and it can be left unbuttoned for an extra flash of sexy. The sleeves slightly puff once the cuffs are down up and it features his classic extra gathers at each shoulder for a slight take on a Victorian feel. It is a gorgeous light weight - think scarf silk. This is a true 1970s version and hard to find and in mint condition!
