There were a ton of cute finds here on Shirt Snob during February. Here's a look back:
February 27, 2009
Ruffles at the placket are not a look we usually like, but it's not too overdone on the Ruffled Sleeveless Top by Marc by Marc Jacobs, so we actually like this blouse a lot. There's shadow stripes throughout with layered ruffle trim at the scoop neck and placket, unfinished edges at the ruffles, rounded hem, and six buttons at the front. It's also semi-sheer and available in beige and soccer pitch green.
February 27, 2009
The Yoga Wrap Hoodie by Free People combines two of our favorite types of shirts, the hoodie and the wrap, and it looks very comfy to boot! This top has a deep crossover neckline, frayed edges throughout, wrap detail, a drawstring at the hood, banding at the bottom hem, and 3/4 length sleeves. It comes in three colors: indigo, oatmeal, and pink.
February 27, 2009
The Tank Bandeau Top by Kerrigan by Daryl K is unusual because it looks like two tops in one. The outer layer has a deep scoop neck and scoop back, ruching at the side, and extra large armholes. Then the bandeau underneath has ruching throughout. It comes in two colors, black combo and light heather grey.
February 26, 2009
The Verde Circular Pleated Top by Fiumicelli is a great top to wear to the office under a cute blazer and then after work when you get drinks with your colleagues. It has a V-neck and back, pleating at the bust, a hidden back zipper, and no sleeves. It is also 100% silk.
If you like braiding, you'll love the Patricia Print Braided Tank by Juicy Couture. This jersey top has gathered elastic banding at the scoop neck and back, braided banding and three button detail at the bust, braided banding and pleating at the patch pockets at the hip, and adjustable spaghetti straps. We also think the swirl print is a lot of fun too.
So many women love wearing scarfs all the time, so why not combine it with your shirt? That is what occurred with the Cropped Sweater with Scarf by Brochu Walker. This sweater has ribbed banding at the wide neck and bottom hem, raised seam at the shoulders and back, long ribbed sleeves, and split sides. Then the tube scarf is also included, so you don't have to worry about matching!
February 25, 2009
We adore how easy going the Pullover Linen Shawl by Generra looks. This top has a wide neck, single button keyhole at the back, ribbed banding at the edges, draping at the sides, and elbow-length sleeves. It is made from a linen and polyester blend.
The So Fine Draped T-Shirt by Only Hearts is a perfect example of that favorite t-shirt that you'll wear over and over again this summer. It has a scoop neck and back with pleating, slant pockets at the hip, a strap at the back, and short dolman sleeves. This top is available in sapphire, white, and black.
The Multistitch Ruffled Sleeve Tank Top by Juicy Couture might skew towards a younger crowd, but we think it's so cute! It has banding at the scoop neck, ruffle detail and stitching at the shoulders, and double ruffles at the short sleeves. The sorbetto color just makes it more adorable.
February 24, 2009
Busted Tees has three new designs, I Want Him, Urban Achievers for the Lebowski fans out there, and Desmond is My Constant, which is a Lost reference.
Nerdy Shirts has released (or maybe rereleased?) the shirt Diablo III and has another new one Spider Drawing. They also have a coupon code. Save 15% with the code 15offtill27 through February 27.
Finally at Threadless, we like the new designs A Simple Plan, Friends Actually Let Friends Do Lots of Stupid Things, If You Find Me Dead, Ice Cream Cheerleading Stunt, and the reprint Tragedy Struck.
The stunning True Love Jacket by Nanette Lepore is worth the price because you can wear it with jeans as the model is, or you can pair it with work clothes or other dressier items. This tweed coat has scalloped trim and two tone banding at the crew neck and placket, contrast appliqué and faux button flap pockets at the front, three hook-and-eye closures, two tone banding at the bottom hem and cuffs, and 3/4 length sleeves. It is also lined.
We really like the next color combinations, so we're thrilled to find it on two different tops. First up is the Tricolor Cardigan by Splendid. This lightweight sweater has a shawl collar, a tie belt at the waist, button detail at the gathered cuffs, and sleeves that can be work elbow length or 3/4 length. It's also semi-sheer.
Then there's the Tricolor T-Shirt by Splendid. This tee has a crossover V-neck, banding at the hem and neck, short dolman sleeves, and is also semi-sheer.
The sexy Silk Camisole by Brochu Walker looks great alone or under a jacket. There is ruching at the scoop neck, adjustable spaghetti straps, and it is extra long at 28 inches. It is also made of 100% silk.
February 23, 2009
We are definitely fans of stripes here at Shirt Snob, so we adore the stripes on stripes of the Maggie Striped Sweater Jacket by Marc by Marc Jacobs. This double-breasted sweater jacket has six buttons down the front, a fold-over collar, welt pockets at the hip, button tab detail at the back, and large cuffs at the long sleeves. It's a great coat to get you through the spring.
The crocheted trim at the scoop neck and back of the Window Lace Camisole by Milly should make it look matronly. Instead, it has a cool vintage feel to it. This top also has pleating at the bodice, three inch straps, and is 100% silk.
February 21, 2009
The Medallion Keyhole Ruffle Blouse by Milly is a cute and breezy blouse with a split V-neck, ruffle trim and a drawstring tie at the collar, ruffle trim at the cuffs, and 3/4 length bell sleeves. It is also semi-sheer and 100% silk. We adore the medallion print. It's about to sell out, so if you like it, buy it before it's too late!
February 20, 2009
We adore oversized cardigans like the Hooded Striped Tie Cardigan by Alice + Olivia. This chunky knit sweater has a hood, five hook-and-eye closures at the front, a belt tie at the waist, and long sleeves. There's also chevron stripes throughout. Great for winter, those cool summer nights, and everything in between.
The Lutila Top by Theory looks great alone or under a blazer It has a split V-neck with a single button at the top, pintucking at the front, and no sleeves. We really like the deep purple color too.
It's nice to see a Sky top that isn't a halter or tank. The Leather Ebner has a square neck and back, graphite leather and chain link detail at the neck, pleats at the front, gathered elastic banding at the shoulders, cuffs, and bottom hem, and 3/4 length sleeves. It has a loose fit too.
February 19, 2009
The Printed Smocked Off Shoulder by Free People can be worn off the shoulder or more as a peasant top. Either way, it's quite pretty with a bohemian feel. There is smocking at the neckline, bottom hem, and cuffs and elbow-length dolman sleeves. We love the paisley print, but it's also available in a floral print as well. It is made from a wool, nylon, and cashmere blend.
Collar Free is a t-shirt company that allows you to design your own tee and then has a community so others can vote. If you aren't into designing and would just like to buy the cool ones you see, you can do that too. Started just over a year ago, their goal was to support independent designers. They actually have many great designs for women right now, including Orchid and Bubble Blossom.
Stars are turning up everywhere in fashion lately. Here they are on a blouse, the Stars Over Stars Top by Marc by Marc Jacobs. It has a star print with layered ruffle trim at the scoop neck, unfinished rolled edges at the ruffles, six buttons at the front, short puff sleeves, and gathered elastic banding at the cuffs. It's the perfect cute blouse for your favorite pair of jeans.
February 18, 2009
We find the watercolor print on the Amaya Blouse by Elie Tahari quite pretty. This blouse has ruffle trim at the wide neck, split ruffled cuffs at the elbow length sleeves, and a camisole lining. The shell is also 100% silk.
We are quite fond of bohemian shirts, but the saffron color of the Monique Blouse by Joie is what clinched us. It has a scoop neck and back with slight ruching, single button closure at the neck, and elbow length sleeves with elastic banding. There's an attached slip underneath, and the shell is 100% silk.
The Mila Top by Twenty8Twelve is one of those simple yet not boring tank tops that we all need. It has a scoop neck, racer back, pleating at the bust, ruching at the back, and spaghetti straps. Made from a modal and cotton blend.
February 17, 2009
We liked the color combination on the Tricolor Racer Back Tank by Splendid, but it surprised us with crochet detailing at the racer back. This tank also has a scoop neck, one inch straps, and is semi-sheer. Available in lavender and grey.
The Zandy Top by Sue Stemp has a beautiful floral graphic at the front which will catch everyone's eye. There's also contrast banding at the crew neck, pleating at the front and back, two inch slits at each side, and short kimono sleeves. It is semi-sheer and 100% silk.
We were drawn to the pretty print of the Printed Dolman Halter Top by Free People, but it's an interesting top besides that. It has a surplice neckline, banded bottom hem, dolman sleeves with duffed detail, ad is sheer. However, there is an attached tie halter on the front with lace crochet trims. It has a loose fit and is available in midnight and ruby.

The checkering on the Open Block Check Shirt by James Perse gives this oxford blouse a 90s feel. It has five buttons down the front, a tapered fit, and fold over collar with a button. Pair with jeans for a casual yet tailored look.
February 13, 2009
Crywolf Clothing is a t-shirt company we just recently learned about started by two friends from Toronto. They design and hand print all their designs, and each is a limited edition. They've recently launched their spring line, and we are mightily impressed. They have a great variety of crew necks, V-necks, hoodies, and sweatshirts. Our favorites include Penguin, Never Cry Wolf Crossbones, and Giant Panda. They also sell tees for men and children.
Thinking ahead for spring? The Print Blouse by Rebecca Taylor is now available for pre-order. This stunning blouse has a round neck, deep split V-neck with three buttons, and short flutter sleeves. The beautiful floral print is what makes it truly special though.

February 11, 2009

The Blaire Cami by Ella Moss is too cute to pass up. This flirty top has ruffle detail at the off the shoulder neckline, thin straps, and contrast trim at the neckline and ruffle. The medium weight of the ruffles also keeps them from flipping up. Besides chive, it's also available in orchid and admiral, but those colors are selling out fast!
We like the yellow and grey color combination of the Brynn S Cashmere Sweater by Theory. This sweater has welt pockets at the hip, ribbed banding at the scoop neck, bottom hem, and cuffs, and long sleeves. It's also 100% cashmere. This is a great option for those of you that live in the colder states and are getting tired of your winter wardrobe.

Rat on the Run was started by someone sick of the rat race of his day job. They have four designs available for women, including Love is in the Air, which is perfect for Valentine's Day coming up. All their designs are pretty cute, we recommend you check them out!
Bratique Helene is a boutique that makes tops for women wiht a full bust. We've heard that buying tops can be quite hard for women with larger chest sizes, so we are thrilled to find a company that helps them. Each top is available two ways for each size depending on the chest size, which will only ensure that the top fits you better. Available on their site is a cami shell, a button down top, and a wrap, each in two colors. The button down uses eye and hooks instead of buttons so the top won't open up between each button. We'd love to know what you all think of this company, so please comment if you try them out!
In general ombre tops are overdone, but the Ombre Tunic by Splendid we still like because it's not the same old tank or blouse with this feature. This top has a deep V-neck, gathered elastic banding and tie at the empire waist, elbow length dolman sleeves, and is semi-sheer. It's available in three colors: lemon, strawberry, and blurple.
February 5, 2009
The Shirt Snob is not a huge fan of oversized Grandpa sweaters, so the Lulu Stripe Cashmere Sweater by Marc by Marc Jacobs is great because it takes the look but makes it a little more flattering. There are five buttons at the front, two tone layered banding at the V-neck and placket, topstitching at the seams, welt pockets at the hip, solid banding at the waist, button hem, and cuffs, and long sleeves. It is 100% cashmere and available in midnight teal and grape juice.

February 4, 2009

This blouse has chiffon ribbons women and knotted along the V-neck and flutter sleeves, crisscross trim at the empire waist, a tie at the back, ruching at the neck and back, and short sleeves. It is also fully lined.

The Black Hills Tube by Free People stood out to the Shirt Snob because of its pretty print that looks almost like it was painted on. There is pleating at the front, smocking at the back, a shirt tail bottom hem, elasticized neck, and contrast stitching throughout. It runs a little small.
February 3, 2009
