Emerson Made Silk Pockets Blouse Review

I have mentioned to you that I have recently placed an order with Emerson made. I have already reviewed the tie waist dress and orange slangbacks here. The dress and shoes were definitely an extras for me and not something I needed but I decided to buy them because I really loved both and the price was right. Well, we can always find thousands of ways to justify an impulse purchase but, on the other hand, I never regretted buying things I truly liked.

This blush blouse however, was in another category. This was something that I wanted to have in my closet and I have in the past considered the collection blouse from J.Crew (not sure about the name, I remember Dani had one) and recently the pleated chiffon blouse. With the Emerson Made version I knew the fabric is going to be superior and the quality great, so at the sale price ($98) the value should be good.
I have ordered size M and it fits well. Emerson tops run short imo, but they have long sleeves. I do have proportionally short arms, so the sleeves may not be so long on you. I am 5'6 but probably have arms of somebody who is 5'4, lol.
The fabric feels great against the skin. It is the type of silk that is matte on the outside and satiny inside. It has some heft to it and I is NOT see through.
I love this blouse and it works great tucked in or untucked. It may be a little short if you like longer tops, but I like it because it is easier to wear untucked and it does not create bulk under my bottoms when tucked in.
I am also wearing J.Crew midrise toothpicks in carbon wash, Ann Taylor belt, J.Crew Valentina pumps, Kate Spade purse and Rayban Aviator sunglasses.

That's all folks!
What do you think of Emerson's pocket blouse?
Is it worth the sale price?

  1. Looking good ajc! Loving the pic with the aviators, very chic. Your outfit is a nice transition into fall. I would expect Emerson Fry to have good quality silk so it's good to know they do. About the sleeve length, one of my shorty friends flips the cuff over once to combat extra length. Maybe that would help?

    1. Thank you xoxo! I actually do the flip sometimes as well, or half flip when I fold the cuff in half. I also have issues when I adjust my car seat to be far enough for my legs but close enough to the steering wheel, nobody can drive in my seat, lol.

  3. Both of the Emerson Fry items look great on you. I remember when we were the same size but not anymore. I also purchased the dress in moss green and love it. I didn't order the slingbacks because I tried the loafers last year and they killed my feet. Might have to try them.
    So happy about the new job and you look very happy.

  4. That blouse is beautiful, it is the perfect blush colour. You're right I do have a blush-coloured blouse, that JCrew Collection item from a couple of years ago. I just took it out of my storage closet. Funny I wish it were slightly more blush pink in tone as yours is, mine is a decidedly beige pink.
    I'm loving this whole look of yours with the leopard accessories, it's very you and very chic!
