What's Old is New Again

File this under "What's Old is New Again". You may think that this white blouse with the big bow by Yves St. Laurent for Fall 2009 is different and new. But the moment I saw the ad for this blouse, I knew I had seen it before. And this just goes to show you, today's designers are heavily influenced by what has come before.
