Anthro Knock-Off Bali Style

So previously on She Said Whaaat?! I've mentioned that my Mum went to Bali. She and I love to go together, but unfortunately I'd recently started a new job and there was no way I could join her.

What I love about visiting the friendly island is the amazing value and craftsmanship that is available.

So whenever we (or she!) travel across, I always get an item or two made. This time this blouse was one of them! It is a copy of the Anthropologie Blue Book Blouse which I stalked on eBay for a short while. It took me a while, but I finally got one! The trouble was though it was slightly too big. Luckily though, we requested this one be made a size smaller and it fits sooo much better!

I love it, especially the crisp-ness of the front ruffles. It got quite a few compliments too, yay! The fabric was a bit heavy, but that was probably because I'd initially chosen the fabric for a skirt. As long as it's not too hot, I'll be just fine ;)

The key around my neck is also a purchase from eBay, a solid silver copy of a skeleton key. The style is kissing dolphins, which is very swell to me!

I totally recommend my friends at the Bali Dynasty, let me know if you ever head that way and want a quality tailor! ;)
