Emily Top by Velvet

velvetemily.jpg

The Emily Top by Velvet is a pretty simple blouse, but we love the crossover bust. There's also shirring at the bust, line detail down the front, a V-neck, and 3/4 length sleeves. It's available in three colors: fire engine, moody, and loubellia.

Marled Jersey Top by Marc by Marc Jacobs

marcmarled.jpg

We aren't sure how we feel about the front tie on this next top, the Marled Jersey Top by Marc by Marc Jacobs, but we do love the rest of it! This shirt has sheer, mesh stripes throughout, quilted banding at the neck, long sleeves, and the mesh tie at the neck. Wear it with one of your summer tanks or camisoles for a cute look.

Accessory Friday-Lazul Jewelry

lazuljewelry.jpg

The Shirt Snob looked back and we haven't done jewelry for Accessory Friday in a month! Good thing since we just discovered Lazul Jewelry and are really impressed with their organic line. We love the circles in all their pieces, such as the Abstract Gold Necklace, the Freeform Abstract Bracelet, and the Pebbles Gold Ring. There are other collections with great pieces too that you should check out as well.

The Solid V Neck 3/4 Sleeve Top by T-Bags is quite a sexy top! It has a deep V-neck, elastic banding and ruching at the empire waist, 3/4 length dolman sleeves, and an unfinished edge on the bottom hem. And once again we're happy with the solid colors from T-Bags. This top is available in pine and slate.

Boucle Wrap Hoodie by Free People

freebouclewrap.jpg

Even though it's still pretty warm where the Shirt Snob resides, we can't help but get excited for winter when we find something as cozy looking as the Boucle Wrap Hoodie by Free People. This cardigan wraps with an extra long tie and a hood. It's made out of a wool, angora, and acrylic mixture, and it's available in five colors: wine, teal, black, ivory, and mocha. It's also quite short, so it'd look great with your longer tops.

Puff Sleeve Button Crew Top by Generra

generrapuffsleevebutton.jpg

The Puff Sleeve Button Crew Top by Generra is a pretty formal looking blouse with its pintucking at the front. But when unbuttoning the six buttons at the bust, it looks a bit less dressy and will work for a lot of situations. This semi-sheer silk blouse also has ruched banding and balloon edges at the cuffs and tonal top stitching at the edges, and elbow length sleeves. It's available in pewter and plum.

Pointelle Cable Knit Cardigan by Alice + Olivia

Long Sleeve Polo by Charlotte Ronson

The Shirt Snob is on the lookout for a nice polo top, so we are super excited to find the Long Sleeve Polo by Charlotte Ronson. This top has six buttons down the bust, a crest patch at the front, a contrast fold-over collar, ribbed banding at the placket and cuffs, slits at the sides, and long sleeves. It's an interesting choice to put brown and grey together, but we think it works really well in this case!

High Neck Tunic by Geren Ford

The High Neck Tunic by Geren Ford is neat because it has two different looks to it. There is a folded collar that can also be unfolded for a high neck look instead depending on your mood. It's semi-sheer, has short sleeves, pleating at the front and at the V-neck, and subtle stripes throughout.

We love the feminine look of the Homestead Mixed Print by Free People. This blouse has a front cummerbund, back smocking, sheer sleeves, eyelet embroidery, and a ruffle hem.

O'Keefe Blouse by Vena Cava

vcavaokeefe.jpg

Much of the time we aren't too fond of tops with some sheer parts. But in the case of the O'Keefe Blouse by Vena Cava we think it's tastefully done. Not overpowering or gaudy. This naturally wrinkly top has a scoop neck and back, horizontal pintucking throughout, metallic detail throughout, frayed edges at the cuffs, sheer short sleeves, a hidden side zipper, and a silk lining.

Gridlock Cami by VPL

vplgridlock.jpg

You would need a lot of confidence to wear the Gridlock Cami by VPL. It's sexy and daring, and we love it! This sheer tank has burnout plaid and seam detail throughout, a logo bar at the back, pointelle banding at the bottom hem, adjustable straps and a double-layered bodice. And unlike most tops that have recently come out, it's only 20 inches long. So if you want something on the shorter side, this might be an option.

Others we like include Book Bag in Blossoms and Branches and Mini Wallet in Nik I Bought New Fabric.

Heather Tencel Deep V Neck Top by Max Studio

maxheathertenceldeepv.jpg

We think the Heather Tencel Deep V Neck Top by Max Studio looks like such a classy blouse. It has piping at the V-neck, flared sleeves, and besides that is pretty simple. It'd be a good top to wear the first time you meet your boyfriend's parents or to an interview as it's pretty, stylish, and definitely not over the top.

The Print Bishop Sleeve Wrap Top has a tie at the waist, 3/4 length sleeves, and ribbed banding at the edges.

Two From Lacoste

lacostevnecksweater.jpg

The Shirt Snob grew up seeing a lot of Lacoste tops, so it is a brand we have always felt very comfortable with. We can't help but love their preppy looking polos and sweaters. Here are two Lacoste tops that we like right now. First up is the Long Sleeve V-Neck Sweater. It has white and blue striped banding at the cuffs and V-neck, banding at the bottom hem, and the signature logo on the left chest.

lacostestripepolo.jpg

Then there's the 3/4 Sleeve Stripe Polo. This polo is different from the others that have been popular in the last few years because of the contrast collar and placket. This top also has 3/4 length sleeves and is available in black and white.

P is for Panda

We've recently discovered P is for Panda, and while they don't have a huge amount of women's tees, there are a few that we really like. Both Mark Penxa Cardinaland Death Panda are really neat designs. We're impressed with the company because they also give away a third of their profits to the charity of the artist's choice. So you're helping out when you buy from P is for Panda. Also check out their men's tees too.

This shirt has a tie at the waist, a fold over collar, banding at the split cuffs and 3/4 length sleeves. It's also 100% silk. We think this is a good one for work because of its toned down colors. It'd look great with a black suit.

New tees at Busted Tees this week. The Shirt Snob likes Like Butter. Now seems like a good time to buy too. If you buy three shirts, you get free shipping, and all tees are $15.99 right now. We aren't sure how long either deal will last.

Wrap Neck Blouse by Rag & Bone

ragwrapneck.jpg

The Wrap Neck Blouse by Rag & Bone took our breath away with its delicate look. It's 100% silk, there's a wrap neck that ties on the side, has long sleeves with banding at the cuffs, and is semi-sheer. It seems quite feminine. But if you look closely, the pattern is lots of daggers, giving it a bit of an edge. Quite an interesting combination of innocence and edginess!

The Dirty Diamond Cami by LaROK is one of the more fun tanks we've seen in a while. Its straps have rhinestone and chain mail detail that makes this tank great. There's also a crossover V-neck, ruching at the bust and back, an empire waist, and side pockets. It's available in black, black olive, and graphite.

Bubble Tank by Mason by Michelle Mason

masonbubble.jpg

We tried hard to resist the bubble trend, but we can't help but think the Bubble Tank by Mason by Michelle Mason is cute. Sure, not everyone can wear it, but if you can pull it off, we think you'd love it. It is gathered at the neck and bottom, has spaghetti straps, and there's a tie at the back. It's available in teal and cream.

Cashmere Jacket by Graham and Spencer

The Cashmere Jacket by Graham and Spencer would work as either a jacket or as a heavy sweater to wear inside. It is a chunky knit sweater with 3/4 length sleeves, a snap button closure, ribbed neck, and wave detail throughout.

Georgette Gathered Top by Vera Wang

verawanggeorgette.jpg

Here's a unique blouse. The Georgette Gathered Top by Vera Wang has silk drapes made from ruching at the front and sides. There's a zipper down the back, no sleeves, a slight V-neck, and seam detail down the front too. We haven't seen many other tops like this out there right now, so you won't be a clone of everyone else when wearing this one!

Two Chain Tops by Twelfth St. by Cynthia Vincent

twelfthchaintunic.jpg

Twelfth St. by Cynthia Vincent has come out with two tops with chains that we think are pretty cool. First up is the Chain Halter Tunic. This 100% silk halter top has a multi-strand chain at the bust with sheer mesh right above it, inverted pleating at the front, mesh straps that tie behind the neck, a lining, and elastic banding at the back. It's perfect for a night out.

Then there's the Chain Tunic if you want something a little more conservative and classy. The multi-strand chains are just below the crew neck, and there's ruching at the front, a keyhole and two buttons at the back, ruching at the cuffs, long sleeves, and ribbon ties behind the neck.

Kimono Tunic by Mara Hoffman

The Kimono Tunic by Mara Hoffman has such a pretty print and color combination that we couldn't pass up showing it to you. Made of 100% silk, it has a deep V-neck with a hook and eye closure, solid banding at the cuffs, and 3/4 length kimono sleeves. It's stunning, quite forgiving, and will definitely make heads turn!

Edited to add September 3:
This top is also available in another pretty print, grey little trees.

Print Strapless Bubble Top by Rachel Pally

pallyprintbubble.jpg

What makes the Print Strapless Bubble Top by Rachel Pally so special is definitely the print! It's quite pretty from far away, but when you see it close up, it's actually a rather intricate design. It has banding and pleating at both the top and bottom hems, and it's also available in a camisole as well as in different colors.

Edited to add on September 3:
Bumping up because now there's two new prints available!

New at Threadless

threadlessfrida2.jpg

The Threadless $10 sale continues until tomorrow morning, and they've released some new designs today regardless. Although the Shirt Snob has already placed two orders this week, we want to place another now! One of our all time favorites has been reprinted, Frida's Garden. Besides that one, we also like the reprint Take Me to Tokyo, Luckiest T-Shirt Ever and Ascending Descent.

Banner Tank by VPL

vplbanner.jpg

The Shirt Snob has never been a huge fan of metallics, but we do like it on the Banner Tank by VPL. Besides the metallic bodice, there's contrast banding surrounding it, adjustable straps, ruching at the empire waist, and the VPL logo on a chain at the back.
