Modern retro

I'm fairly excited about this blouse because it's the first chiffon top that I own that doesn't require a tank top underneath.  I'm assuming that the dark colour plus the checkers makes it less see-through.  But for all I know, it's still see-through and that I've been walking around with an inappropriate top to work.  Anyway, I wanted to recreate the outfit in the post I did about pattern mixing, but I don't own any patterned shorts.  Excuse to go shopping?  Yes. Also, my zipper bracelet is pretty cool, but the fact that it's not actually a functioning zipper makes it a bit less cool.  Yeah, I don't know why I was expecting it to be a real zipper.
