Find of the Month: Givenchy Silk Chiffon Blouse

Check out this sunny yellow Givenchy blouse. I picked it up at the Goodwill on Roncesvalles for $8. They had all kinds of good things like a Max Mara camel coat, but they were all so wintery. This blouse is total summer fun.

Technically the label is Givenchy for Fashions Couture. As far as I can ascertain, Fashions Couture was a local boutique or small chain of boutiques in the 70s. They would purchase ready-to-wear from Paris and put in their own tags. This was a not uncommon practice: I have a Burberry for Harrods trench and I used to have a Krizia for Chez Catherine dress.
