    Hi everyone,

    I recently acquired this blouse and I was looking for any information anyone has. Authenticity, time period? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

    Cute blouse! I see early 1970s secretary.
    As for authenticity, per forum rules we do not authenticate items.

    You blouse has the IGLWU label that was used from 1963-1974.

    Does it have a cleaning care label? If not it is pre-1972 when care labels were required. I think it might be mid-60's with the fiber content combination but the Union label gives you a good ball park.

    Looks more like a tunic than a blouse, to me. Seems too long to tuck into a skirt or slacks?

    I am not at all familiar with that "made in the USA" and USA Union made Dior label. The only thing I recall having seen anything similar was on lingerie back in the 70s (if I recall correctly) Perhaps this was some limited time licensing thing when Dior was looking to reach a larger and lower end market?

    The inexpensive fabric of nylon/poly seems more for lounging wear, as does the length.

    That makes a lot of sense, thank you!
