The State of Bliss Blouse - Black
Ever since I was a little girl I have always had an affinity with western, cowgirl esque aesthetics especially from yesteryear. It seems oddly serendipitous that I now find myself living on a farm with 40 plus horses and a family of cowboys and cowgirls who run their family trail riding business. As ‘learner rider’ I may still be (and no doubt always will be) more of a voyeur into this enchanting lifestyle but I often relish in the delight my child self would have at the knowledge of my destiny. The State of Bliss Blouse and State of Bliss Skirt is an ode to Adult me living out my childhood fantasy. An interpretation of my daydreams of old westerns, ranch living, rodeos, country belles and falling in love with a cowboy.
Made from a heavy yet super soft Rayon it features a high neck, shell button opening, pintucking down the front and back of the bodice, a subtle puffed sleeve and raw edged frill detailing around the neck, buttons, cuffs and sleeves. The Shape is slightly tailored at the waist and is the perfect length for tucking in or tying up.
My favourite way to wear this piece is tucked into the 'State of Bliss Skirt'; but it also pair’s it beautifully tucked into jeans or layered under dresses, overalls and pinafores.
- 100% Hand Heavy Weight Rayon

This piece is designed to be worn to comfortable skim over the body but still be cinched at the waist. It has therefore been sized accordingly. If you wish for a slightly tighter fit go down a size. I am wearing a size S in the images above and would normally wear a standard size 10-12 in most Australian labels. As most of our pieces are adjustable and reasonably free flowing; our sizing is simply a guide. Here is what the sizes for this piece translate to in standard Australian sizes.
XS = 6 - 8
S = 10 - 12
M = 12 - 14
L = 14 - 16
