That is one reason we like this week's Frugal Friday, the City Style Puff Sleeve Knit Top at New York & Co. This top has draping at the scoop neck, pleat detail at the bust, and short puff sleeves.

We've decided to start a new column here at Shirt Snob entitled Frugal Friday. With all the issues with the economy right now, many of us cannot splurge on clothing like we once did. There are still good finds out there at stores you'd normally find at the mall. There is no shame in wearing a cute top you find at one of them, no one will see the tags anyway! To start off our first Frugal Friday, check out the Ruffle Chiffon Top at Charlotte Russe. This cute blouse can be worn with dressy bottoms, or dress it down with jeans. It has ruffle trim and buttons at the bodice, smocked elastic banding at the scoop neck, ruffles at the cap sleeves, and an empire waist. Our loyal Shirt Snob readers know we adore black and white tops. At $19.99, it is affordable for everyone.
