The Find: A Lace Trimmed Blouse

Oct 1, 2019

Sometimes I spot a piece and just thing, “Yes, that.  I need that.”  This elegant, lace-trimmed blouse from Ann Taylor is just such a piece.  Don’t miss it.

There are many things to like about this Lacy Wrap Top ($80, also in petite).  First, the lace trim is delightful — not too frilly, but feminine and pretty.  The wrap shape is flattering on many body types.  And the finished hem means that you can wear it tucked in or not without looking rumpled.

If you’re concerned about the top being too revealing, there is a snap to keep it closed.  I paid the alterations person at my dry cleaner $6 to move the snap to a location that was more flattering on me.  If you have an ample chest, you may want a sturdier snap, as the one included is a bit flimsy.

Looking for a similar blouse without the trim?  This Antonio Melani wrap top was in saved in my wishlist until I found this one.  Plus-size?  This Pleione top is a crowd pleaser. I also like this City Chic wrap top.  Any competent tailor could add a peek-a-boo lace trim to either of these blouses.  Tall?  This ASOS top is available in limited sizes.

The Range: Trouser Jeans

Yesterday, we chatted about not-see-through tees. Today, I want to talk about jeans. I am so grateful wide leg denim is back in a big way. And if you’re going to the office, you need a trouser style jean to see you through the week (or just casual Friday). Here are some favorites in different […]

The Find: A Miracle T-Shirt

Remember when clothes didn’t suck? The years were the late-90s and early-aughts. Jeans stretched a little, but were mostly cotton. Cashmere was soft and heavy and durable. Poly-blends were only sold at the giant teens stores on the lower level of the mall. And t-shirts were thick, not see-through, and wore like iron. Your first […]
