I want a very pale blue silk blouse.  Had one in the 1980s that I loved.  Have not seen one since.  I have an oxford in that color but I want something dressy.

Not sure if this is light enough, but it's from Vince on Net-a-Porter. $130

Thank you so much.  This is exactly what I am looking for.  However, there are no reviews yet and the bust size concerns me.  I am big in the chest and this seems to run very small in the bust and other measurements are not given.  I have saved it and will await reviews because I love the color and the style.  Zappo is easy to return (I have done that a lot) but I will await reviews on this.  I fear it is going to run very small in the bust. If no returns for a month or so, I will order it.  I can send it back.  I will have no place to wear it right now anyway.

Have saved this one.  I think I am going to order it.  It could be from the same grouping, sotospeak.  The price seems to be a sale and it did give me the option to put my weight, bust size, etc., in and I came up with my regular size in B&M.

 

UP-DATE Went ahead and ordered the one from Net-a-Porter.  It seemed the bust sizing would be right.  It was a stretch silk (which would allow some give in the bust which I need).  It won't be the end of the world if I have to send it back.

This is my favorite but I cannot wear blouses with the Greek key open style in the back for some reason.  I am bigger in the bust than in the back and (for some crazy reason) it makes the blouses seems baggy and the front tight.  I do better with button-up-the-front blouses. But this is my favorite.

You are a good detective.  I have never found these blouses in my search.  Of course, I have never looked at Zappo's and it has been a while since I looked at Nordstrom.  Thank you ever so much.

No.  I don't pay any attention to that Pantone stuff but I have no trouble at all finding things in the colors i want.
