We recently discovered Gorjana Jewelry, and we are so happy we did! They have a bunch of beautiful and unusual pieces that we are longing for! Some of our top picks are the Bali Tear Earrings, the Willow Cuff, the Shadow Circle Earrings, and the Bali Ring. Many items are available in both silver and gold, which is great for us because so often we'll discover something we love available in silver, and the Shirt Snob only wears gold. Unfortunately, their site is in flash so we can't link to the individual products, but definitely check out their site! You'll love what you see.

We're written about cardigans similar to the Drape Cardigan by Splendid in the past, but we can't get enough. This one is a great cover up for fall. It has long sleeves, large banding at the front edge, and is quite long. Wear it with your summer tanks or with a cute fall top! It's available in black, coffee, ivory, and smoke.
August 31, 2007
If you want a dressy sweater, the Tori Top by Samantha Treacy is one to consider. It has metallic stripes throughout, a wide neck, and 3/4 length bell sleeves. There's also a metallic lining underneath.
August 30, 2007
More new tees out at Busted Tees yet again. We can barely keep up with them! They are Nuke the Whales, Recipe for Disaster, and Denmark's the Spot.
Nerdy Shirts has come out with two new designs for pre-order, both for Flight of the Conchords. If you aren't watching this show, you must start. It's hilarious. The tees are Mutha Uckas and Business Time. There's also videos on each page in case you aren't part of the joke.
The Ryde also has 43 new designs for women. Yes, that's right. To be honest, while their designs are cute, they all sort of look the same to us, so we aren't too sure which ones are new. But go check them out if you haven't yet.

Last November, we found a sweater that reminded the Shirt Snob of one that our mother wore back in the 70s. And now we've discovered another one that reminds us of it too. If these two were mixed together, it would be that sweater! We can't help but love this sweater as it brings back lovely memories. The Hooded Pom-Pom Cardigan by Catherine Malandrino is a cardigan with pom-pom detail throughout, a single button at the neck, and popcorn knit banding at the front, hood, and cuffs. It's made out of lambswool and angora, so it's quite warm and perfect for the upcoming winter!
The Shirt Snob doesn't think she's ever seen a jacket as cute as the Silk Cotton Mini Swing Jacket at Max Studio. It has satin collar, cuffs, and belt, pleats at the waist, 3/4 length sleeves, a hidden snap closure, rounded neck, and texture throughout. It's also fully lined. It's both flirty and refined at the same time, which is probably why we love it so much!
The Short Sleeve Rib Yoke Sweater by K.A.7 by Katayone Adeli is another great top to wear over your summer camis. This lightweight sweater is semi-sheer, has a rolled bottom hem, short puff sleeves, and ribbed yoke at the shoulders. It's available in white, nude, and midnight.
What is so wonderful about the Pleated-Up Tank by Geren Ford is that it's a bit forgiving in the stomach area. This silk tank has a scoop neck, hidden side zipper, thick straps, and seam detail throughout. And we love the silver color!
August 29, 2007
We're written about the Charmeuse Dita Top by ingwa; melero before , but it's back, and this time with two new colors combos: champagne and wine. It has a hidden zipper, lace tie at the back, ruching at the empire waist, spaghetti straps, and underwire bra detail. If you missed it the last time, you're lucky that you can buy basically the same thing with fall colors!
We must admit that when we watched her season of Project Runway, we were not huge fans of Kara Janx. But she has certainly proven herself since starring in the reality tv show. The Long Sleeved Tunic is one great example. The top has a kimono wrap design with contrast banding at the V-neck, large banding at the waist, and a similarly colored tie at the front. Besides black/ivory, it's also available in ivory/chocolate and ivory/black/sea.
Sexy and sweater aren't words we normally put together, but C&C California is certainly changing that! The Darcy Mixed Rib Sweater is a 100% cashmere fitted sweater. There's a scoop neck, ribbed bodice, large banding at the waist, ribbed long sleeves, and is 29 inches long. It's available in heather grey and merlot.
August 28, 2007
Yesterday started the $10 sale at Threadless. Get over there quickly, a lot of tees are selling out fast. They also came out with some new designs as well. The Shirt Snob's favorites are Stupid Cupid, Amazon Addiction, Bad Apple, Stupid Raisins, Stay Out of My Cookies, and the reprints Pandamonium, The Communist Party, Cookie Loves Milk, and Flowers in the Attic.
The Tuxedo Tie Top by Lia Kes is the perfect top for the board room as well as for drinks after work. This blouse is slightly sheer with pleats at the front, five mother of pearl buttons down the front, raw edges, slight ruffles at the cap sleeves, and a tie at the front.
The Babydoll Top by Milly is stunning because of all the crochet work, which is throughout the entire top. There's also cap sleeves, unfinished details, and is lined. If you want a delicate and flirty top, this could be for you! It's also available at Shop Bop
The Silk Doupioni Pintucked Shell by Max Studio is perfect to wear under a cute jacket as it's pretty but not too overwhelming. Of course, it'd be great alone too! Made of 100% silk, it has a light sheen, is lightweight, has an empire waist with pintucking, crossover bust, braided raw edge trim, embroidery knots throughout, and is fully lined.
August 27, 2007
Busted Tees has three new designs (well, more like they did last week, but we've been busy!), and we like them all. They are McLovin, Computers: Wave of the Future, and No Punch Backs. Also, get free shipping when buying three or more tees.
No one does a wrap like Diane von Furstenberg! The Graciela Wrap Top is a silk wrap with a tie at the waist, smocked banking at the back, smocked collar and cuffs, long sleeves, and pleating at the waist. We think the bright blue color is amazing too!
We love how simple yet pretty the Scoop Neck Short Sleeve Top by Graham & Spencer is. There's a scoop neck with ruching and elastic banding, unfinished hem at the bottom and the cuffs, and cap sleeves. If you like this, you may also like the Short Sleeve Top too. The neck is a little different and there's a print, but it's pretty similar other wise.
The Shadow Flower Cami by Splendid has a cute flower print that we think would be fun for this fall. The bodice is loose fitting and flowing, there's a ribbed neckline, ad it's lightweight. It is also very similar to the Mulberry Print Tank we wrote about in June.
August 26, 2007
It seems that most organic clothing for women is in the form of t-shirts. So we are glad to discover the Organic French Terry Tailored Jacket by Stewart + Brown. This jacket has five asymmetrical buttons down the front, shirring at the back, mandarin collar, front pockets, and buttons at the cuffs of the long sleeves.
August 25, 2007
The Pleated Grommet Blouse by Catherine Malandrino is an interesting one because it is a little tough with the grommets but quite feminine with the pleat at the front. We like the contrast! This silk top is slightly stretchy, has pleating at the back as well as the front, 3/4 length puff sleeves, a button and keyhole at the cuffs, and a scoop neck.
If you want something without color, you might like the Futuristic Print Jersey Halter Top from McQ - Alexander McQueen. It has a crossover front, thick banding at the bottom hem with ruching, and a grosgrain strap. It's very sexy and perfect for a night out!
August 24, 2007
If you enjoy being a hostess and entertaining your friends and family, you definitely need a cute apron to protect your clothing. We've discovered some great ones at Wishing Fish. The Shirt Snob is partial to the Baby Blue Mocha Apron and the Pink Paris Hostess Apron, but there are a bunch of others as well. Wear one when you're cooking for friends or just thinking about it (maybe while reading I Like You, a great hostess book by Amy Sedaris!).
We love the simplicity of this blouse, the Euna Top by Velvet. It has smocked sides, a crossover bust, shirring at the back and bust, and 3/4 length sleeves. It's also available in five colors: black, harbor, lapis, malt, and white.
Here's a great fall sweater for those cooler nights. The My All Sweater by Joie is a cashmere and wool mix with a hood, long sleeves, and ribbed banding at the edges and sides. It's available in grey heather and oat heather.
August 23, 2007
Here's a bit of a departure for us. Normally, a print like the one on the Flutter Blouse by Charlotte Ronson would not appeal to us, but for some reason we really like it. Maybe it's because it's full of fall colors, or maybe because it just looks comfortable. Either way, we really are fond of it. This blouse is 100% silk, has ruching at the cuffs and wide neck, a tie at the back, and 3/4 length sleeves.
The Shirt Snob isn't usually a big fan of turtlenecks. We hate to have something close to our necks. But the Puff Sleeve Turtleneck by Jamison is so unusual and interesting that we had to show you it! Made of 100% cashmere, it has pleating at the front, 3/4 length puff sleeves, and ribbed banding at the cuffs. It's available in some wildly different colors (frost, navy, and teal), so you can get something that will make you stand out or something a little less bold.
We love ruffles when they aren't over the top. The Penelope Top by Joie has ruffle trim at the bottom hem and straps. There's also three buttons and a keyhole at the front, ruching at the empire waist, and it's 100% silk. The leaf print is quite pretty and delicate too!
August 22, 2007
Here's a great blouse for a fun night out on the town. The Metallic Print Twist Tank Tunic by Rachel Pally, which is available in golden and midnight, has a metallic print, twisted banding at the scoop neck and thick straps, pleating at the bust, and an unfinished bottom hem.
Atomic Madhouse is a new tee company that uses comic book sound effects and catchphrases for their tees. The lined just debuted last month so you probably won't see too many people wearing their tees yet. We think they are cute and hope they come out with more designs in the future as well as actual picture of their tops and not just drawings. Our favorites are BLAMM!, AAARRGGHH!!, and Devil Girl.
We don't really understand the name of this next one, the Combat Jacket by Rag & Bone. It looks pretty feminine to us, not at all like one's ready for combat wearing it. No matter where the name came from though, we do love it. Made of mostly wool, it has a single button closure at the front, button flap pockets at the hips and bust, long sleeves, solid trim at the edges, a double vent at the back, and is lined.
August 21, 2007
The Silk Bamboo Empire Top at Max Studio is such a sexy, flirty, and fun top, you're sure to have a blast wearing it. There's an empire waist with shirring, striping in the crinkled silk and bamboo, and thick straps so it's bra strap friendly. It's also silk lined.
Have a cute tank or cami that you want to wear into the fall? Layer it with the Snap Kimono Cardigan by YAYA AFLALO. This cardigan sweater is a wool and cashmere mix and has a deep V-neck, a shawl collar, six snaps down the front, 3/4 length kimono sleeves, and ribbed banding at the cuffs and hem.
Here's the perfect tunic for fall. The Long Sleeve Empire Tunic by James Perse has an empire waist, a deep V-neck, banding at the waist and neck, ruching at the waist, and long sleeves. It's available in macaroon and charcoal.
August 20, 2007
Another Monday, another group of new Threadless tees. This week, we've found a few that we really like. They are Polar Garden, Quack Attack, Butterfly Fish, and A city built on rock n' roll would be.... So many great designs, we now just need another one of their $10 sales to happen!
The Shirt Snob usually is not a big fan of mesh, but this is definitely an exception. The Beaded Tunic by Rebecca Taylor has mesh banding at the neck and straps with beads that is not too over the top or annoying. There's also ruching at the bottom hem, thick straps, and inverted pleating at the front.
We only show you our favorites on Shirt Snob, but Ella Moss always seems to design the favorites of those favorites. The Isabelle V Neck Top is definitely no exception. This blouse has crochet banding at the deep V-neck, back, bottom hem, and cuffs which gives it such a feminine appeal. There's also short dolman sleeves and smocked banding at the empire waist. It's available in amethyst, black, and turquoise.
August 19, 2007
Here's a cute top for your work day. The Brandalyn Top by Theory is a button down with ruching at the bib and back, a notched collar, and short puff sleeves. It's available in both black and white.
August 18, 2007
The Loving Arms Long Cardigan by Joie is perfect for wearing over your summer clothes as it gets cooler outside. Made from a wool and cashmere blend, this long sweater has a single button at the front, ribbed banding at the empire waist, ribbed detail at the bodice and long sleeves.
August 17, 2007
The Shirt Snob is a big fan of belts, so we were very excited to discover the Bandana Belts over at American Pig Brand. Paisley is one of those love it or hate it patterns, and while we aren't usually a big fan of them on most items, we think it works quite well on these belts. Available in brown and cream, black and white, white with black, and cream with brown, these belts also have an engraved wood face, and is 1.5 inches thick.
Fabric 8 has some new designs out this week, and there are a few cute ones for the ladies. The Shirt Snob's top picks include Leaves Tee, Leaf Hoodie, Seahorse Tee, and the Deer Island Tank.
Here's another great one from Ella Moss. We really think we could stock our entire wardrobe with all the great tops of hers. The Natalie V Neck Tunic has a crossover V-neck, smocked banding at the empire waist, spaghetti straps, lining at the bust, and tonal stripes throughout. It's available in magenta and turquoise.
The Silk Georgette Camisole Tunic at Max Studio is a stunning top! It has braided georgette ribbons at the neckline, straps and flowers by the neck, shirring at the sides, and elastic at the empire waist. It's also fully lined and 100% silk.
August 16, 2007
It seems a pretty sure bet that Superbad will be a hit in theatres this summer. If you are as excited about this movie as we are (yes, the Shirt Snob is still 15 years old on the inside!), then you can pre-order the I Am McLovin tee over at Nerdy Shirts. It's on sale right now too, and it will be shipping in September.
Also, get 10% off your entire order when using the coupon code "NERDYTEN" at check out.
If you are looking for something to keep you extra warm as the days get cooler, the Hooded Toggle Sweater by Sunner is right for you. This ribbed cardigan is 100% wool with three toggle closures at the front top, patch pockets on the lower front, a hood, and two inch cuffs at the long and wide sleeves.
Buy Olympia started as a way to help the owners' friends sell their handmade crafts, but now they've expanded to sell many products by many different people. They have some great designs for tees such as Future Librarian, Knitting is Knotty, and Soaring Sparrow. We do wish they would separate their pages between men's, women's, and children's clothing, but if you are willing to wade through a bit you'll find some great things. Buy Olympia also sells a bunch of other things, such as music, belts, and cards.
If you liked the Button Tank by James Perse that we showed you last week, you'll love the Oxford Stripe Top by Marc by Marc Jacobs. This one is similar in that there are buttons attaching the thick straps to the body of the top. But this one also has a bias stripe detail throughout, button tab detail at the bust, an inverted pleat at the front, and is also semi sheer.
August 15, 2007
There are new tees all over the place, so once again we are going to try to consolidate them all into one post so as to not fill up your blog reader. First up is Glarkware has some new designs out. They are all available for pre-order and will be shipping in September. Our favorites of the bunch include Broken Ox, Expendable, Slap Bet Commissioner, and Slayer Washroom.
Next is Noisebot. They have nine new tees, and we like Off With the Head, The Monopolists, and Bad Penguin.
Snorg Tees also has some new ones out. Both Sometimes Alcohol is the Answer and That's Quacktastic are available for pre-order, and we also like You're Going Down.
Busted Tees has two new tees. They are Mac Daddy and Thrift Store.
Random Shirts also has two new tees. They are Phoenix and Robot Family Tree.
What we love about this next top, the Silk Wool Jersey Kimono Shell at Max Studio, is that it's nice and simple. We can't get enough of kimono tops, but many can be pretty complex. This one, made from a wool and silk mix, is elegant and straightforward. It has a cross over V-neck, short sleeves, a shirred hemline, and ruching at the empire waist. It'd look great with a pair of skinny jeans
Accentuate Clothing is a tee company with some awesome, artsy designs. We'll let them tell you all about them as they put it better than we ever could:
Young adults have become more and more involved in the world. Socially, politically, economically, our efforts continue in the hopes to contribute, to change. As spirited young adults with foolish dreams, we are seeking a voice that will penetrate the dense cloud of noise, and reach and impact a mass that is significant. For many years we have consumed stories told through films, lyrics, books. Now, we are eager to tell stories of our own, through the language we know best: Design.
They only have four designs for women at the moment, but we really like them all. They are Koi, Thank You, Growth, and History. Make sure to check out their men's tees too!
The Shirt Snob has never been very good at pulling off turtlenecks. However, if you can, you might want to consider the Slouchy Cable Sweater by Mint. This cable-knit sweater has a turtleneck, knit ball detail throughout, short sleeves, and ribbed banding at the bottom hem. It's also semi-sheer, so it may be a good way to cover up when wearing one of your more summery camisoles or tanks!
August 14, 2007
We haven't seen many wraps lately, but hopefully that'll change as more fall styles come out. The Bishop Sleeve Top by Rachel Pally is an interesting one with a very deep V-neck. There's also a tie at the side and 3/4 length sleeves with elastic banding at the ends. Besides cocoa shown, we also found it in violet too.
Here's a sexy one for you! The Solid Silk Voile Top by Marc by Marc Jacobs is 100% silk and sheer with ruffle detail throughout, a rounded neck, and short puff sleeves. Wear a cute cami underneath or be daring and wear just a bra! Either way, you will certainly be the talk of the party!
We can't get enough of beautiful pattersn. The circular floral pattern of the Sonar Silk Cami by Trovata is definitely different! This silk tank has brown buttons down the front, spaghetti straps, an empire waist with slight ruching, and is lined.
August 13, 2007
It's time for more Threadless tees! Out of this week's batch, the Shirt Snob's picks are Looking For Love In All The Wrong Places, Skip Dessert, A Birth Day, and the reprint Defend the Kingdom. Also new is wall art from Threadless. They've taken some of our favorite designs and made them into wall graphics. We think Insomnia would be great for our house!
The Lipstick Sunset Tunic by Joie is a stunner because it's prim and proper but still quite sexy. It has five buttons at the bust, pin tucking at the front, banding and a tie at the waist, ruching at the shoulders, and a button at the cuffs. It's available in crisp white and plum.
The Morainn Tank by Velvet is a very flattering top that we think would look great on most people. It has an empire waist with a drawstring and tie, ruching at the neck and back, and an unfinished bottom hem. It's available in three colors too: black, coal, and ember.
August 12, 2007
If you are still more interested in summer clothes than tops for the cooler months coming up, then you should consider the Bra Gather Tunic by Susana Monaco. This sexy tunic has a V-neck, ruching at the bust, two inch banding at the empire waist, and is available in black and midnight.
However, if you like this top but want something for fall, there is the Urban Gather Long Sleeve Top. Very similar to the Bra Gather Tunic, this top has long sleeves to keep you a little warmer. It's available in black, chrome, and midnight.
August 11, 2007
Cotton Factory has some new tees out. Our favorites include Baghdad IROC, Mothra, and Real Men Wear Leaves.
The Shirt Snob has always been a big fan of striped sweaters. We have always owned a bunch, so of course we are interested in the Deep V Striped Sweater by adampluseve. This sweater has ribbed banding at the V-neck, bottom hem, and cuffs, long sleeves, pleating at the shoulders, and is semi-sheer. It's available in navy/ivory and purple/heather grey, but the navy one is selling out quickly!
The Flocked Daisy Shirting Top by Marc by Marc Jacobs is a lovely take on your typical white button down shirt. This blouse is sheer with thick pin tucking at the bust, tiny daisy embroidery throughout, six buttons and three snaps down the front, a fold over collar, and elastic cuffs at the short sleeves. It's perfect for work or whenever you want to look dainty and polished.
August 10, 2007
Two Sisters Jewelry Boutique is a jewelry store started by twin sisters in Washington State earlier this summer. One makes the jewelry and the other does the business side of the company. We think it sounds like a pretty fun job, working with one's sister! They have a ton of great pieces available on their site, including bracelets, necklaces, and earrings, offered both in goldfill and silver. Some of the semi-precious stones they use include white agate, Swarovski crystals and pearls, red coral, grey onyx, and quartz. We were sent two pieces, the Rosie Necklace and the Dakota Earrings.

We are having a hard time believing fall is coming with all the hot weather we've had lately! We still can't help but get excited about all the sweaters we are finding though. The Bias U Neck Sweater by Vince is another great one. Made of 100% cashmere, it has a deep U-shaped neck, ribbed trim at the neck, ribbed banding at the hem and cuffs, and long sleeves. It's also available in black, grape juice, and nile blue.
The Anais Pleated Tank by Ella Moss is a fun little top that shouldn't be confused with it's similarly named Anais Top, also by Ella Moss. This one is a long tank with straps that tie at the shoulders, pleating at the bust, and large banding at the bottom hem. It's available in six colors: amethyst, heather grey, grass, magenta, turquoise, and vanilla.
August 9, 2007
Vintagedge has updated their website, and now you can order every design in women's sizes as well as mens, long sleeved, and hoodies. Women's tees are also available in ten different colors. Besides this, there are new designs too! Some of our favorites include Monticello Mustangs, Vintagedge Crest, and Bruins.
There's nothing better than a top that you don't need to iron! The Celesta Top by Velvet has a wrinkled voile panel at the front, crochet at the square neckline, 3/4 length sleeves, elastic banding at the cuffs, and is semi-sheer. It's available in ivory and steel.
How have we not written about No Star Clothing yet? It is a travesty, but luckily one that we are remedying today. No Star is a tee company that sells an interesting mix of funny and cute tops. All of them will put a smile on your face. Some of our favorites include Unlucky, Freedom on a Leash, Watch Your Back, and Everything Will Be Okay. They sell men's and children's tees as well.
Clu's Shirt w/ Shirring in black and white is a simple yet sexy blouse. It has shirring and four buttons at the bust, a V-neck, and long sleeves. Looks great with jeans or a nice pair of slacks.
August 8, 2007
If you're been paying attention to baseball recently, you may have an opinion on Barry Bonds and his new record. If you aren't a super big fan of him and prefer your players substance free, you may like the new tee 756* over at Busted Tees. It's currently available for pre-order and will be shipping in a couple of weeks.
The Button Tank by James Perse is simple yet we still love it! It has one inch straps that are attached to the front with a button and go into a V at the back, banding at the top hem, and is available in black, charcoal, and white.
The Draped Neck Top by Mint is such a great party top in our minds. Made of 100% silk, this blouse is sheer with a draped charmeuse neckline and charmeuse banding at the cuffs. It also has short puff sleeves. We find the rich sapphire color irresistible too.
The Ferraria Halter Top by Sky is made special with the gorgeous woven leather and chain banding right below the bust. This halter also has an empire waist, deep V-neck, ruching at the bust, asymmetrical bottom hem, and long straps that tie behind the neck.
August 7, 2007
Just the name of this next top, the Cashmere Grampa Sweater by Charlotte Ronson, makes us think of a warm and comfortable sweater! Don't be fooled by the name though, it's only 10% cashmere! This sweater has long sleeves, two brown buttons, and a collar with a V-neck. Great for wearing at the ski lodge or at home while sipping a cup of hot chocolate.
This next blouse is one of the prettiest we've seen in a long time. The Lace Tunic by Rebecca Taylor has lace at the neckline, bust and sides, pintucking at the front, ruching at the back, short sleeves, is semi-sheer, and 100% silk. It's feminine, quite unique, and simply stunning!
Here's a fun camisole! The Side Tie Cami by Twelfth St. by Cynthia Vincent has a large tie on the left hip that will certainly stand out against the boring, normal hemmed tops everyone else is wearing. This top also has a zipper closure at the back (which we wish was a little more concealed), ruching at the side, and thick straps.
If you want an exotic top, the Printed Silk Jersey Tunic by Foley for Foley + Corinna is perfect for you. Made of 100% silk, this long tunic has a tie at the waist, long kimono sleeves, and banding at the wide neck. The print is what drew us to it though, it's so unusual and beautiful.
August 6, 2007
We just think the '60s Cardigan by Citizens of Humanity is spectacular! Retro and edgy, you will be super cool wearing it. This jacket has an extended tab button closure at the neck, pouch pockets at the front, 3/4 length sleeves, button tab detail at the back, and ribbed banding throughout. It's available in black, heather grey, and sandy.
We don't think everyone could pull this off (such as the Shirt Snob, still sporting the birthing hips a bit), but we recommend you at least try as this top is just awesome. The Anais Top by Ella Moss has a crossover V-neck, six inch banding at the hem across the hips, and short flutter sleeves. It's available in seven colors: black, boysenberry, fern, grass, heather grey, navy, and vanilla.
August 5, 2007
The Pebble Top by Ella Moss has a cute pebble print, as the name implies. It looks sort of like an animal print to us, but either way it's cute. This blouse has ruching at the bust and back, banding at the square neck, short flutter sleeves, and surged edges at the cuffs. It's going to sell out soon, so if you like it, grab it up!
We think this next one is perfect for the office. The Ursa Striped Top by Theory has a striped collar and cuffs under a wool sweater. If you like the look of a button down under a sweater but don't want to wear two layers, this is perfect for you.
August 4, 2007
There are new designs at a bunch of different t-shirt companies, so we thought one post for all of them would be the easiest way to tell you about them all. First up is Fat Rabbit Farm! They've come out with three new tees, and we like them all. They are Cow Tipping, Popsicle Bunny, and Rabbits of the Caribbean.
Next up is Cotton Factory. They have six new ones, and our top picks are Nutty Buddies and Godzilla vs. Yak.
Finally there is Busted Tees. They have a great new design Viva La Evolución. Besides that, there's the anti-Michael Vick Bad Newz Kennels, with 10% of proceeds going to ASPCA.
The Virginia Tank by Velvet is great because it's sexy and flattering, and it's perfect for hiding your tummy. This top has a scoop neck, unfinished bottom hem, ruching throughout the bust, spaghetti straps, a lace up tie at the empire waist, and is lined.
August 3, 2007
We're said before that we enjoy writing letters. Who doesn't love receiving them from friends and family, especially when you aren't expecting it? It's more fun to write letters on pretty cards and stationary, and we think that Fun Paper Goods by Lexie Sullivan quite fun and stylish. Each set has six cards in it and are blank inside, so you can use them for anything, whether it be a thank you note, sending birthday wishes, or just saying hello to an old friend. Help us to bring back letter writing, and doing so in style!
Threadpit is a tee company that sells the typical funny t-shirts that you see at many t-shirt sites. A bunch of their styles are a little outdated (such as lots of Arrested Development inspired designs), but they also have a bunch that are quite funny. Each tee is available in men's or women's sizes, and you can usually also choose between a few colors and what style you want (tank, tee, or jersey), although there's a slight price increase with all women's tees. We love all the variety. Some of our favorite designs include Rushmore Academy, Not Made in China, and Snowman.
Harkham is quite good at making blouses that are not that different than anything else but still seem so original. The Beloved Cotton Lawn Tunic is a great example. Instead of a normal contrasting color, it has lace trimming the deep V-neck as well as at the empire waist, down the front and half way down the back. It is sheer and also comes with a tank to wear underneath.
August 2, 2007
The good people over at 80s Tees were kind enough to send me two Junkfood tees to review. The company focuses on things that were popular in the 1980s (obviously) including the music, movies, TV shows, and video games. They also sell a ton of Junkfood tees related to the 80s as well. We jumped at the opportunity to tell our lovely readers what we think of both the tees and the company.
Continue reading: "Review: Junkfood Tees from 80stees"
Our favorite place to find Sky clothing is no longer, so you can imagine how thrilled the Shirt Snob is to discover the Fashion Chateau. They have a bunch of great blouses, including the Feder Top. It has a deep V-neck, ruching around the waist, a flowing bodice, and a large gold encrusted snake at the waist with some peekaboo holes. This top definitely isn't for the faint of heart, but if you can pull it off, more power to you!
The One Strap Top by Geren Ford is definitely a unique top; we don't recall ever writing about a blouse with a strap on only one side. We don't usually such tops, but this one has somehow charmed us!
