About a year ago I saw a really neat blouse in a department store. Designer. And about a hundred bucks. I couldn’t pull the trigger but I didn’t forget how cool it was. A semi-sheer, red and black snakeskin print shirt. Kind of like this one:
Top: Ross Dress for Less
Tank: Old Navy
Jeans: Banana Republic
I’m glad I resisted the urge to splurge. A few months later, while looking through the racks at Ross, I found a strikingly similar top for a fraction of the price.
Here, I’ve stuck to a limited color scheme: red and black (one of my favorites). But I think this is a prime candidate for pattern mixing and for being part of a more colorful outfit. So I’ll be sure to try it in a few different ways.
I like the “collarless” collar of the shirt. It’s basically a Nehru or Mandarin style and will probably be versatile.
Have you ever bought something and later found it on sale (or resisted a splurge and found a deal later)?
