Every single last one of them.  It was just a short time ago actually that I bought my first silk blouse, always shying away from them, fearful for many reasons - fit, looking too dowdy, etc.  Being on the more busty side (32E, I know, I know, I hide it well), I felt that silk blouses (or any button downs for that matter) were not for me, but after experimenting with a few, I have now found them to be one of my favorite pieces.  My first purchase was a Club Monaco number (and they are still some of the best), followed soon after by a J.Crew Blythe blouse and now this Joie style has kept the love affair alive.  With this blouse, I liked the absence of buttons, deep V-neck and gathered waist.  I purchased the XS and found it fit perfectly, and since the style is a staple in the Joie brand, I will certainly be adding more colors to my closet in the future.  My pants are a recent find at Zara, and frankly it isn't really fall until you buy a piece of houndstooth, correct?  And finally, stealing a few moments in open toed shoes is a small victory.  Unfortunately I think the window has now passed only a few days later.  My polished toes now weep perfectly lacquered tears.
