At first glance, the Shirt Snob thought nothing of this next top. But after looking at it more closely, we've come to realize how great it would be to have something like this in your closet. The S/S Organza Top by Rebecca Taylor is a great way to dress up a simple camisole or tank top in one quick step. Made of 100% silk, it has pleated ruffles going down the front, at the neck, and at the short sleeves, iridescent disk buttons down the front, and pintucking at the back. And we really like the dark blue color. It's not too wild but a nice change from black.
The Banded Olympia Top by Daryl K is definitely a fun one. This cotton blouse has one inch banding and the neck and above the bust with ruching at the bust, shoulders, and back. It has short sleeves and elastic banding at the cuffs. We really love the color. If you want to stand out amongst everyone else, this is a great top to wear. It's also available in black and paramount white.

Let's make today a Catherine Malandrino day as we've found two new ones by her that are very cute. The first is the Wide Sleeve Blouse. This top is 100% cotton with 100% silk banding at the V-neck and yoke at the waist. There's pleating at the bust and waist, pin tucking at the yoke, and Swiss dots throughout. It is lined, has short sleeves, and there is a hidden side zipper as well. Available in blanc and noir.

This next top we just love because the print is so much fun with such great colors! The Arm Tie Top by T Bags has a scoop neck, elastic banding and ruching at the top, 3/4 sleeves with ties, and an unfinished bottom hem. This print is also available in a dress as well.

Happy New Year readers! We hope you all have a safe and fun holiday and the upcoming year brings you joy and prosperity. The Shirt Snob is excited with all that the upcoming year brings. Let's start things off right with a cute top by Grey Ant, the Sweetheart Blouse. This top has a fishnet pattern on the thin mauve cotton, a sweetheart neckline, sleeves that end just after the elbow, raw edges, contrasting rib cotton at the shoulders, and five buttons up the front. It looks like a modern take on a 50s housewife to us. Best part is it's gone on sale since we first discovered it right before the holidays!

Here's a stunning top that we would love to own. The Estrella Top by Nanette Lepore is a beautiful champagne color and is 100% silk and super shiny.

It hangs long, and the bottom hem is unfinished. It's available in black, buro, birch, and winterberry.

We think this next blouse would be a fun one to wear on your next tropical vacation. The Silk Ruffle Top by Parameter is 100% silk with a deep cowl neckline, ruffled sleeves, and pleats at the bust. There's also a hidden zipper and the fun print of large, red flowers. If you like this top, there's also a matching dress!

Here's a very pretty one, the Vintage Lace Cardigan by Sweetees, a designer we don't write enough about. This blouse is 100% silk, is fully lined with modal, has poufed cap sleeves, a tie at the waist, V-neck, lace at the neck, and a swingy bottom. The flower print on top makes this top look rather regal.
