Roar!!!!

 Vintage purple and gold leopard top.

Vintage purple and gold leopard top.

This is an eighties hidden treasure. The designer behind this peplum waist silk blouse is Ann May.  I have done a fair bit of internet research on her but with the exception of finding one or two vintage websites that have a top listed as hers, she is not a lauded designer, or one that I can find that much about.  So all I will say is this top is CLASSIC my mom.  Not only is it silk a leopard print blouse, but it is also in tones of deep purple and gold!  Huzzah!  It was as if the universe aligned to make her a perfect top.  I cinched it with my own belt, channeling the "Gap Girls" SNL skit, but mark my words, as all things in fashion cycle back, we are only a heartbeat away from shoulder pads, peplum and purple.
