Do you ever visit the "ladies co-ordinates" or "ladies items" department in your local department store? You know the one I mean, the department where your grandmother shops? I do, as I find that they are a mecca for striped tops.
I passed through the other day - initially just for fun, but I ended up buying this tee:
The top is from the brand Jump and I purchased it from David Jones for $69.95, which is a lot more than I would usually pay for a tee on the spur of the moment whilst supposedly shopping for a Wedding card... but I liked the fit, and was experiencing a tough day at work, so I bought it.
It's a linen/viscose blend and the stripes are actually printed - so in time I think the stripes will take on a weathered appearance. I hope the top doesn't stretch too much like linen usually does. [Who am I kidding? I know it will.]
I know that the sequins are a little circa-2009, but at least it doesn't have shoulder pads...
