This shirt definitely had me feeling like a flirt all day, even though I was in a room of about 400 other chic women. Typical Tuesday, right? Actually, I was wore this to Create & Cultivate last week in Dallas. I saw this top on Shopbop and couldn't stop thinking about it, the price point was a little higher than what I like to pay for just half of the outfit. But in the end it was one of those items I kept thinking back to and it helped that the "low quantity" stock reminder kept coming up. I pulled the trigger and it was one of the easiest outfit I've ever pulled off for a fashion blogger conference- because if you've ever been you know how much thought and planning goes into the outfit on the day of. The zippered pencil skirt gave the sweet top an edge and a peek of leg, plus it streamlined the flounce up top. The shoes and bold red lip added that sophisticated touch. But, my favorite item, besides this top, is the ribbon tied on around neck, and it was free! This ribbon came tied on a Saks Fifth Avenue shopping bag, gift with purchase if you will.
A friend and I were shopping at Saks, as the saleslady was wrapping up her purchase and in the process of tying this ribbon on the handle my friend said not to worry about it. I jumped in and said yes she will take it! I had other plans for this multi-striped ribbon. So of course said girlfriend was sweet enough to let me have this ribbon. I for one am obsessed with this ribbon and the story behind it. Please don't fault me for wearing it too often in NY this week. ;)
