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 Find: An Olive Striped Shirt

As you may have noticed, I do not have the most creative personal style. I am here for basics. But what I’m always looking for is basic-but, a piece of clothing that is basic but just a little different.

The Mondays: June 17, 2024

From the rooftop deck of my D.C. hotel I can see it all. The Capitol building, where I worked on and off for a decade. My first apartment where my three-doors-down neighbor was a young Senator Obama. My second apartment building where I bounced from unit-to-unit as my salary rose and I was finally able […]
