Shooting Star Burnout Hoodie by Free People

freeshootingstar.jpg

We think the Shooting Star Burnout Hoodie by Free People is the cutest hoodie we've seen in a while. It has a pattern of moons and stars, a hood with elastic banding, three buttons at the V-neck, and raw stitching throughout. It's available in berry, sapphire, and olive. The Shirt Snob is probably a little too old to wear something like this, but we're sure plenty of our readers could get away with it!

Kanika Top by Velvet

velvetkanika.jpg

Here's a pretty simple blouse that would be a great addition to anyone's wardrobe. The Kanika Top by Velvet is a semi-sheer top with a deep V-neck, wrap detail at the front, unfinished edges, and long sleeves. It'd be great with a pair of jeans or a cute skirt depending on how dressy you'd like to be.

Edited to add Nov 1:
We've also just discovered the same top at Tobi under a different name, but in two other colors: indigo and fire engine.

Tie Front Shirt by Tucker

tuckertiefront.jpg

We feel silly about this, but here is yet another to with a tie at the neck that we don't hate! Maybe this isn't a feature that we can't stand, we just only like it on particular tops and have seen it misused often. The Tie Front Shirt by Tucker is a 100% silk blouse that is semi-sheer, has a scoop neck, banding at the cuffs, short sleeves, and the neck tie. We think it works here because the top is so simple besides the tie, so the blouse isn't too busy. But no matter why it works, what matters is that it does and we like it!

New Tees at Threadless

threadlessambition2.jpg

The new Threadless designs are out! We like BEarth, Children Under the Bed, Delivery, and the reprint Ambition Killed the Cat. They also have this new feature called Thriftee, and here's how it works. They will have one tee up on their site for only $10, but it's only in one size and design. The first person to buy that exact tee gets it for $10. Once it's bought, another one goes up. And this goes on forever. So if you like cheap stuff, this is a good one to pay attention to. As we write, there's a girly XL up there!

Bib Blouse by Chrissa

chrissabib.jpg

It took us a few minutes to figure out why we like the Bib Blouse by Chrissa. After all, it's a pretty simple looking top. But then we realized that simplicity is not a bad thing. This blouse has a bib neckline with ruffle trim and pleating and a slight metallic sheen, so it's not totally boring like a plain tee. And we feel it's good to have some more simple tops in your wardrobe. This is a great one, and we think it's a great look with a cute pair of jeans.

Besides eggplant, it's available in military green, grenadine, and beige.

Birdflower Tee at Gama Go

Way back in April 2006 our boss took over the blog for a few days while the Shirt Snob recovered from childbirth, and much was written about Gama Go. For some reason, the Shirt Snob hasn't written about them since. Well, we are ready to change that now that we discovered the Birdflower Tee. We think it's such a cute design, so happy! We aren't sure whose tee it's printed on, but it's silk screened and is available on two colors: asphalt and white.

The Silk Jersey Top by Foley + Corinna seems to us to be about as refined as a tube top can be. This 100% silk top is lined at the bodice, has a ruched overlay, boning at the bodice, and a hidden back zipper. It'll dress up any bottom you want to wear with it.

Guilded Tulip Tunic Shell by Rebecca Taylor

This blouse has twisted banding at the scoop neck, a crossover pleat at the front, tie at the waist, asymmetrical bottom hem, cap sleeves, and two buttons and a keyhole at the back. It's a little busy but would look great with a simple bottom.

Breast Cancer Tee at Privacy Wear

We are sure you've seen plenty of breast cancer awareness products all over the web this month, but we've found some tees we haven't seen before that we really like. The United We Cure Tee at Privacy Wear is a cute design. The website says absolutely nothing about the tee besides for sizing, so we have no idea what it's printed on, how it's printed, etc. But if you like the design, give it a try!

Design by Humans is a tee company that sells a new shirt every day. It's a contest where you can win to be the shirt of the day, but also the shirt of the week or month too. A lot of their designs are hit or miss to the Shirt Snob, and a lot aren't available in women's sizes, but there are some good finds there too. You can also search just for women's tees. A couple of recent ones that we've liked include Attraction and Bad Pet.

Accessory Friday-Fuss Jewelry

Fuss Jewelry is a jewelry store on Etsy that we are going gaga over. Maybe it's because there's a lot of gold (which is finally officially in style again, although we've never stopped wearing it) and fall colored stones, and we're a sucker for anything that reminds us of this season. But we just want to buy up the entire store. Some of the Shirt Snob's favorites include the Whiskey and Champagne Quartz Flower Earrings, the Flower Dangle Earrings, the Smooth Whiskey Quartz Drop with Sunburst and Rose Clusters Necklace, and the Champagne Bomb Ring.

Elmo Top by Dallin Chase

The Elmo Top by Dallin Chase is not one of our favorites because of the tie at the neck, but besides that we find it to be quite pretty. And we are sure some of our readers wouldn't mind the tie. This top has a chiffon drawstring and tie as well as ruching at the scoop neck, and it is lined. We like how the ruching is caused by the drawstring as it's much more natural than many other ruched tops. It's too bad that it's overpowered by the tie.

Review: Threadless

It's pretty surprising to us that it's been two years that we've had this blog, and we have yet to review Threadless! We've always loved their designs, but we discovered them when we became pregnant. Since then they've changed from American Apparel to their own tees, so we were unable to review what we already owned. But we took advantage of the recent sale to buy a few tees for ourselves for review.

It has an empire waist with ruching, ribbed banding at the crew neck, bottom hem, and cuffs, long sleeves, and is 100% merino wool. Who says you can't be warm and look adorable at the same time?

Ruffled Blouse by Twelfth St. by Cynthia Vincent

twelfthruffled.jpg

Normally the Shirt Snob isn't a huge fan of lots of big ruffles, but they seem to work in this case. The Ruffled Blouse by Twelfth St. by Cynthia Vincent has layered ruffle trim at the deep V-neck, a single jeweled button at the front, a tie at the waist, elastic banding and ruching at the waist and cuffs, and 3/4 length sleeves.

This blouse has banding at the V-neck, empire waist, and square back, rushing at the bust and waist, and short flutter sleeves. It's available in army with white banding and black with army banding.

Gauze Cami with Ruffles by Parameter

parametergauze.jpg

If it weren't for the bottom of the Gauze Cami with Ruffles by Parameter, we wouldn't have looked at it twice. But the alternating rows of grey and purple ruffles at the bottom hem makes this camisole quite unique and pretty. There's also a silk lining, rounded neck, and pintucked pleats at the neck.

Print Front Wrap Top by T-Bags

tbagsprintwrap.jpg

We know we've said recently that we are a little sick of T-Bags' prints, but we still like this next top, the Print Front Wrap Top. We've never seen a wrap from them (at least that we remember), so it's a new way to wear the prints if you like them. This top has a shawl collar, a keyhole at the back, deep V-neck, wrap detail at the front, ruching at the cuffs, and long sleeves. It's available in two prints.

Fine Boiled Wool Baby Doll Sweater by Max Studio

maxfineboiled.jpg

The write up on the next time, the Fine Boiled Wool Baby Doll Sweater by Max Studio, says it has a folkloric vibe. We couldn't agree more, but we could never have come up with such a way to describe it. If you want to fit in at your nearest Renaissance Faire, you could consider this sweater! Made from 100% wool, it has floral embroidery down the front, crocheted trim at the neck, a tie at the empire waist, and rolled edges at the sleeves and hemline. It's available in heather charcoal/black and heather rust/heather brown.

Baby Fleece Wrap Hoodie by Splendid

splendidbabyfleece.jpg

Currently, everything the Shirt Snob owns that is fleece is worn out of necessity. It's been a functional fabric for us, perfect for those 10 degree days when we're shoveling the driveway. But now that we've just discovered the Baby Fleece Wrap Hoodie by Splendid, we see fleece can be stylish too. This hooded cardigan has a tie at the waist, pockets at the hip, ribbed banding at the bottom hem, a jersey lining at the hood, and long sleeves. It's available in black, grey, and white.

If you want a good tank for fall, the Dlot Flower Jacquard Silk Top by Marc by Marc Jacobs is a great option. The body is silk and the knit trim is wool. The print is a cute floral and dot pattern as the name indicates. There's also eight buttons at the front, pleated ruffle detail at the empire waist, thick straps, and a scoop neck.

Tevya Top by Theory

theorytevya.jpg

What first drew us to the Tavya Top by Theory was the amber color, great for fall. But it's also a sexy top too, and you don't find too many sexy sweaters out there! Made of mostly merino wool, it has pleating at the scoop neck and back, ribbed banding at the edges, ribbed stripes throughout, and 3/4 length sleeves.

Bell Sleeve Crop Sweater by Jamison

jamisonbellsleevecrop.jpg

The Shirt Snob has a love/hate relationship with ties at the front of the neck. We own a ton, but at the same time we just aren't sure if we like such a detail. But there are a few cute tops out there currently with such a tie, especially the Bell Sleeve Crop Sweater by Jamison. We love the sweater, so we'll let you decide if you like the tie or not! Made from a mixture of merino wool, cashmere, and nylon, the top also has a hook and eye closure at the front, short bell sleeves, ribbing at the neck, sleeves, and bottom hem.

Black Forest

blackforeststeins.jpg

Black Forest is a tee company that we've just learned about recently that has designs related to that particular area of Germany. Or maybe it just is related to Oktoberfest. Either way, they are cool. From what we can tell, they have only three women's designs at the moment.. We especially like the Beer Steins tee (which we can't link to directly because of flash).

Progresswear

progresswear.jpg

Progresswear is "political wear designed to be noticed" according to their website. From what we can tell, it's more left wing than right. However, the Shirt Snob is not the most political person, so who knows. But we are definitely believers in evolution being an anthropology major in college, so while we may not wear our politics on our fronts, we can appreciate those tees. Progresswear also sells tees for men and children (which are less political).

It's available in charcoal, heather grey, and ivory.

Sydonia Leather Belted Tank by Sky

skysydonia.jpg

We know that Sky can look a little hoochie on some people, but if you can pull it off in a sophisticated way (or at least wear it only when you're going out at night), we think they are great additions to your wardrobes. The Sydonia Leather Belted Tank by Sky is a great one because it has the neatest black and white print that looks like branches and leaves. There's also twisted straps, a deep V-neck, and leather woven belt banding below the bust.
