We really like this next top, it's a little different than others we've been showing you recently. The Bandeau Top by Daryl K has a more boxy cut at the neck, which we really like. It has four inch straps, ruching below the bust and on the straps as well as on the banding on the bust. Smocked banding is also at the back, where the top looks very unique, as if it is two pieces, the bust banding and the rest. We also like the colors too, dusty spruce, which is shown, and bleached shadow.

We haven't shown you all anything from Free People in a while, and we love their tops, so now is a good time to start. The Crochet Braid Cardigan is beautiful and very romantic, so if you are in to that type of top this is perfect for you. It has small buttons that goes down the front and cream colored crochet lace along the neck. The empire waist has a tie in the front, the straps are crocheted, and there are braids going down the body of the top.
Here's a fun print that will be a blast to wear this summer. The Babydoll Top by Nieves Lavi has a ton of personality with its bright colors and (outgoing flashy bubbly) pattern. This tank top also has ruching at the empire waist, gathering detail at the bust, straps that are braided, a hidden back zipper, and is lined at the bust. If you want to be noticed at the next BBQ you go to this summer, this is definitely the top for you!

You all know how much we love Ella Moss here at Shirt Snob. We've just found another beautiful tank top of hers that we have to share with you all. The Flora Tank has a beautiful purple and white floral pattern with ruffle detailing at the spaghetti straps. There is also ruching at the bust (which is lined) and elastic banding at the empire waist. And the best part is that it's only $73.50!

Here's an interesting top by LaRok. The Rings n' Chains Babydoll in sandstone is sexy and revealing. Definitely not a shirt that everyone could pull off, but on the right person it could be great. This tank has 3 inch banding, ring and chain detailing at the waist as well as two cut out holes. Ring and chain detailing is also at the back, and there is a removable necklace at the front above the top hem. There are also thick spaghetti straps and ruching below the waist. Also comes in oyster.

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!

Here's a cute top by adam+eve, the Pleated Baby Doll Top. Made of 100% silk, it has thick straps that tie at the shoulders, a zipper at the side, pintuck pleating at the front and back, and banding at the top hem. It comes in two colors, coral and white and black and white. The design is great, it looks sort of like a flowery pattern up close but at the same time like splattered paint from farther away. We love this because it's a fun simple shirt, looks very comfortable, and it's easy to wear. As the weather is getting warmer, you'll need something fun to wear to all your cookouts and laid back parties.

There's been so much about t-shirts lately, it's about time we look at something different. Sure, tees are great, but we don't want to be wearing them all the time now, do we? Here's a great top the Shirt Snob just found at Playhouse Clothing, the Tinkerbell Top in pink/berry by Sweetees. This 100% cotton top has an empire waist, a zipper on the side, adjustable straps, and it is lined. There is a ribbon that ties below the chest and there is eyelet and ribbon detailing at the bottom as well. The name of this clothing line really makes sense in this case, you certainly will look sweet and innocent in this top. It also comes in black/white. While you're there, check out some of Sweetees' dresses, they are also beautiful.

This next shirt takes an ordinary look and makes it extraordinary with a few details. The Dry Knit Linen Slim Tank by adam+eve is just a simple tank, but with a big twist. There is a braided rope and bead detail at the neck and the front. Banding is also at the arms and the bottom hem. What a great way to dress up a tank top! Besides ivory, this also comes in fatigue as well as in a similar t-shirt version.

Here's another from Ya-Ya that reminds us a lot of her Falling In Halter that we wrote about last week. The Falling In Tank is the same color (mauve) and is made of the same material (95% rayon, 5% lycra). This also has a robe detail, this time at the straps, but it is white and not the same color as the top. The same robe detail is at the back, pulling the straps together to make a racer back look. It also has an empire waist and ruching at the seams. This is definitely a very sexy tank, not one to wear when you're meeting your man's parents for the first time!
