10th Commandment: April 3

Pretty Blossom Tee (TopShop, $72)

Technically, this shirt is made for tall people, but it was so adorable, I had to share.  It would be easy enough to alter it to fit someone of regular height, or you could just wear it as a tunic.  They also sell a petite version for those of you with smaller frames.

    wait–how is this different from floral jeans?

  2. Belle says:

    Lucille: It's a printed blouse. No different from a dotted blouse or a striped blouse. I wouldn't recommend you put either of those on a pair of skinny jeans either.

    The print doesn't have the uniform look of cheap wallpaper or 1970s couch fabric. It's more subtle, less overwhelming.

    A person cannot live by solids alone. If you lump all floral prints together in one big basket, then you are doing yourself a disservice. It's like saying, “Abe Lincoln and Sarah Palin are both Republicans. Abe Lincoln is the same as Sarah Palin.”

    I love this top! But Belle, you don't think it can be paired with skinny jeans?

  4. Greta says:

    Hmmm. Seems to me that this very much resembles the 'garish retina-searing floral-print' of the very jeans you just posted. I actually like the look of both: the floral jeans and this top. not together of course. But with that in mind, i think relegating said garish prints to just our top halves is an equal disservice.

    This top is really effing cute and smile-inducing.

The Mondays: July 22, 2024

The Crowdstrike/Microsoft Meltdown forced me to take a few days off this weekend. No laptop. No billable hours.
