There is no doubt that my taste in interiors strongly influence my taste in fashion. Case in point – this darling top I “spotted” during our recent trip to Atlanta. Cannot wait to wear it under a kelly green or turquoise cardi with a pencil skirt or jeans. Oh that tiny pleated ruffle. Look at the pattern carefully.
Now let’s compare it to one of my very favorite bathrooms.
Which happens to be similar to one of my all time favorite patterns, Brunschwig & Fils Les Touches. Black has been discontinued, but is still a keeper in my book.
So there you have it. A simple shirt purchase inspired by a history of loving splotchy, black and white patterns in my world of interior design. Heaven.
I never shop at loft, but happened to pass it when I used a different entrance than normal because Lenox was insanely crowded. I figured “Meh, I’ll look. Why not?” I was alone with no whining voices, so time was a rare luxury. As I pushed past the tables of mediocre, mommish button-downs, I found myself exploring the “60% off” rack. Nothing really appealed to me until the sassy little top appeared. Then I found a cute navy dress and a fun polka dot top with a brass zipper on the should (hanging in back). I do love the basics because they can be accessorized in so many ways and have such a classic look.
If you’re interested in seeing more of my recent bargain finds and how I wore a few of those items, leave a comment letting me know and I’ll try to do a brief blog post. Brief. In no way would I e-v-e-r consider myself a “fashion expert,” so I have to throw that out there. Plus I’m not sure if a post like that would be like watching paint dry or something of interest.
