Chiffon: Part One

I found this blouse on a recent shopping trip to H&M, and still can't get over its dramatic sleeves.  The sleeves are bluntly tamed by strict long cuffs, and there's an oversized bow at the neck (which, as you can see, can be tied in the back as well). Pairing it with a simple black skirt doesn't seem to do it justice, so I haven't yet figured it how to complete the look.  Faux leather leggings? Spandex ankle-length longline skirt? I sincerely hope this doesn't turn into one of those purchases that hangs off my door, intimidating me, and rendering me unable to ever find its match. Interestingly enough this isn't a vintage piece at all, so dare I dream of fashion embracing romantics again?
