If you've worn a flowy top on your blog lately, I'm sure you've seen my comment on it about how much I want a flowy, loose, preferably print, shirt. (I'm looking at you Kileen and Brittany). I've heard about A'gaci before, mostly from Lindsay's blog, so when I saw one around the corner from my hotel in Chicago earlier this month, I knew I had to go. I have to say, it was interesting, and I did find a few gems. I guess clubbing tops just really don't have much of a place in my wardrobe anymore. I guess I could have gotten a hint from the fact that their website says "Teen clothing," but heck, it was more affordable than hitting up Ann Taylor (which we have all over California, anyway). And now I have a flowy top.
What the heck do you wear with a top so flowy? Since I haven't quite found the right pair of skinny trousers yet, and my straight leg pants were recently out of the laundry and yet-to-be-ironed, I went for the volume on volume look. Sort of like how I did it here. The belting (in this case built-in) keeps it from being too frumpy.
I love that this top is not only flowy, but has some color and print to it. It will be a perfect beach-y top when summer comes, too!
The shirt is a bit gaping on the sides (under the arms) but it's nothing a regular cami can't fix.
How do you feel about pairing volume on top with volume on bottom? Do you embrace it or do you avoid it?
