I recently watched a 1970s television thriller about Satan disguised as an evil nurse called Bessie. Diana Dors stars as Bessie, an elderly woman whose job involves visiting the homes of sick rich folk to make them miraculously better by stealing their souls. An scary looking witch with a giant wart on her chin, Bessie could be described as kind of blousy.
Why blousy is an insult I will never understand. In my opinion, no wardrobe is complete without a pretty blouse or three and I am embracing this philosophy wholeheartedly at the moment. This Dot and Herbey silk shirt is just one of many reasons why a pretty blouse cannot be beat. Just lovely and not 'blousy' at all.
