Circus Blouse

I picked up this blouse at Buffalo Exchange recently for $4 on the clearance rack.

Circus Blouse Refashion - Before

As disturbing as I find clowns to be, I was strangely drawn to this print with its creepy clowns, juggling ballerinas, unicycling jesters, and prancing ponies.

I chopped off the sleeves and used some bits of lace salvaged from an old bra to cover a couple stains on the yoke.

Circus Blouse Refashion- After

No more stains!

I've styled it with a black pencil skirt (refashioned) and wide black belt (thrifted), as well as my Calvin Klein nude and black wedges (DSW clearance).

It looks so good and love the way you styled it. I also find clowns disturbing.

The lace really jazzed it up. Awesome!
