This blouse is inspired by Frenchy’s purple polka dot dress at the carnival in the closing scenes of “Grease”. Perfect for a summer night, the popcorn stitch on the shoulders and puff sleeves of this pullover add texture and fun to a universal cropped blouse. Wear it paired with capris, cigarette pants, or a pencil skirt, feel like a badass greaser lady in this fun 1950’s inspired top.

Frenchy is first release in the series, my “Pink Ladies Collection”!
