Pintuck Tank

Well, well, well. It’s already started, my friends. I know most of the country is under a sheet of ice right now, but it’s a balmy 75 degrees here and I’m already thinking of beach bonfires and cocktails on patios overlooking the ocean.


Silk Halter Top – $45, Martin & Osa

I want the orange one. Or the red. No, I want the navy one to wear with my white jeans and apple green sandals this spring.

(p.s. – I can’t stand it when people’s sunglasses don’t rest on the bridge of their nose. Do you know what I’m talking about? Like when someone smiles and the sunglasses move with the person’s cheekbones? SEE ABOVE.)

    As if I need help spending money….damn you Miss Whoorl, damn you! (Or thank you, I can’t quite decide…)

    Ooh… pretty pretty. Shivers just thinking about wearing it right now with the temps in Chicago at -2 degrees!

    Beautiful. Lucky for me it’s freezing outside.

    I think that this part of the challenge is the biggest test of your willpower (and mine)!!!

    You are, for sure, trying to put things in my head that I really cannot afford right now… but this top is LOVELY!

    The glasses bug you but the hair-storm doesn’t? If it’s THAT windy, should she really be wearing a tank?

    I love the navy-white-green combo I’m picturing. Now tell me, what kind of bra do you wear with this top? I just had a breast reduction in November and will finally able to wear stuff like this now! Would you go strapless here? You wouldn’t go braless in silk would you?

    I’m doing the same thing…no unnecessary purchases for this girl either! This could be very difficult…I feel your pain!

    alas, some of us have no nose bridges. and to be banished to just metal frames with wire nose pieces? so sad . . .

    I was in the store today (my favorite of all stores, by the way) and did not see that shirt or that fabulous necklace…

    Have you noticed the low priced Gorjana jewelry they have? Awesome.

    Why don’t you go Photoshop the sunglasses and send the new pic to them?

    While I totally understand about the glasses thing, you should be in my shoes. The curse of the chubby cheeks makes the darm things nearly impossible to buy. So infuriating.

    That is why I can’t wear big sunglasses. Because that happens to me and it irritates me too. (See my Xmas card photo this past year.)

    So, yesterday when you wrote this in your 75 degree weather, the wind chill factor here in sunny Cedar Rapids, Iowa was -52. 52 degrees BELOW. ZERO. Holy hell… it’s cold out.
