Here is yet another cute top from Susana Monaco that we adore. The Beaded Halter Top has a pleated bust, ties around the neck, and a zipper on the side. What makes it special though is the crochet trim with wooden beading that go along the tie as well as at the empire waist. It comes in two colors, red and brown. We think this is such a fun shirt to wear this summer and would look great in so many different occasions.

Looking for something fun and sexy? Consider the Mandalay Halter by Sky. There are three circular medallions at the waist with purple and red stones in them. Two more medallions are by the shoulders as well. There is an empire waist, a tie behind the neck, and ruching at the bust. This halter is great if you want to really make a splash the next time you go out!

Happy Monday! We thought we'd start out the week with two really cute finds, the Hayworth Halter and the Two Tone Halter, both by Susana Monaco. Thie Hayworth Halter has elastic ruching on the back, pintuck and structure piping, a side zipper and is fully lined. We love the zig zag pattern in green and white.
The Two Tone Halter has an empire waist with a band that also goes up to tie behind the neck, gathered seams across the chest and waistline, and the breast area is lined. Although the color doesn't work on anyone, it can work great on some and is unusual enough to make you stand out. Best part is, it's almost $150 cheaper than the Hayworth Halter!

This top is rather simple, but we really like the look of it. The Cummerbund Tunic by Rachel Pally would be a great top to pair with a pair of jeans for a quick and easy look this summer. The halter top has a deep V-neck, pleated banding at the empire waist, ruching at the bust and below the banding, and an unfinished bottom hem. Comes in black, white, and cherry. Similar to this is the Cummerbund Halter Dress in cherry and peach.

Happy Monday everyone! We hope you enjoyed your Mother's Day yesterday, we certainly did! Last week, while searching around Amazon, we found a lot of great deals on last year's clothes. We thought we must share these deals with you all since we know how easy it is to get away with a previous season's clothing in many situations. Let us focus on Catherine Malandrino, we are all about her lately! The Black Chiffon and Satin Heart Blouse is over $200 off. It is 100% silk, fully lined, has a V-neck with satin banding underneath the bust, and a heart appliqué on the front bottom half. Also check out the Black Chiffon and Satin Heart Dress (also available in green) if you like this top.
Another beautiful find is the Cyan Blue Chiffon Beaded Halter Top. This halter has layered silk chiffon that is pleated underneath the bust. There are also mulit-colored beaded straps that tie around the neck. The best part, it's over $200 off!
Finally, check out the Black Beaded V-Neck Tunic Sweater. Made of a lightweight lambswool blend, it's perfect for those cooler summer nights at the beach. It has a V-neck, long flared sleeves, small slits at the hip, and beaded detailing at the neckline. And at 50% off, it's a steal!

You all know how much we love Susana Monaco! Here's another halter of hers that we just have to tell you all about. This 100% silk top has a deep V-neck, ruching at the bust, and there's contrast banding at the empire waist and the bottom hem. The Shirt Snob thinks what we really love about this top and many others by Monaco is the prints. These colors blend so wel together into such a unique and fun shirt. It's just perfect for the warmer weather that is here, especially today in Boston!

Susana Monaco has come out with a bunch of basics in a bunch of colors. We love them all, so we're going to tell you a bit about each. The Monroe Top is a cross back tank with ruching at the bust and 1 inch banding, and it comes in seven colors. The U Gather Flare comes in six colors, and it's a halter with ruching along the bust and spaghetti straps that tie behind the neck. The Slip Tunic is similar to the Monroe Top but longer. It also has a cross back with ruching at the bust, but this one comes in 11 different colors. If you are interested in a basic tube top, the Tube Flare Tunic is for you. It's just a tube top with a flare bottom and is 19 inches long. It comes in 10 colors. Finally there is the Hudson Tube Top. This one has a gathered detail at the bust and the sides with a flare bottom, and it comes in three colors. There's a lot for you to consider as you think about your summer wardrobes. We are big fans of Susana Monaco, we think all of these tops are great and would compliment just about anyone.

Here's a cute new halter top by Lauren Moffatt. The 100% linen Sunset Halter has a tie dye fabric, and there's a rope style gold chain at the neck. Braided gold metal straps are at the V-neck, there is piping right at the empire waist, as well as ruching at the bust. A hidden wire is also in the bust to provide shape, there is a hidden zipper in the back, and the lining is 100% silk. We really like the angles at the neck, it's all very geometric and unique looking. If you like this, also check out the Sunset Halter Dress.

Now that the weather is getting warmer, the Shirt Snob is thinking about showing off a little skin. Of course, we personally won't be doing that for a bit, not until the watermelon in our belly decides to be born. But once that is over and we hopefully get our new body back, this is definitely something we want. The Falling In Halter by Ya-Ya is fun and sexy and still classy. It has a braided banding that gathers at the front and back, which leads to a keyhole detail. The bottom hem is unfinished, and there is a verticle seam detail at the body. It comes in three colors, black, white, and mauve, and would look great with a variety of different bottoms.

Here's a cute top that has a rather bohemian appeal. the String Halter by Susana Monaco is casual and comfortable. You can't help but look like a laid back, easy going person when you wear this. It has ruching at the bust, smocked banding, and banding at the neck and straps. The bottom hem is surger, there is a thick tie at the waist and a thin one behind the neck, and it's semi-sheer.
