Anyone with even a passing interest in fashion, knows all about the basics one should have in one’s wardrobe … the perfect jean (still looking), the perfect mac (not sure that I want one), the LBD (not in my world) and the perfect shirt. Those of you who are familiar with my blog, will no doubt be bored to tears at this stage by my endless search for the perfect cream or white top.
I thought I had hit on it last February, when I bought a white silk shirt in Zara (see here) After one wear (mortifyingly, at my first meeting with fellow fashion bloggers) it soon became clear that it was little more than a rag. The seams were appalling, the fabric creased and it didn’t really survive the first wash. Epic fail.
But look at this! Now, this is truly beautiful. And somehow, I have faith that Michael Kors will have got it right. I love the shape, I love the fabric, I love the colour and I love the fact that this can be dressed up, dressed down, worn to the office, out to dinner … this would be one very hard-working top. Frankly, if I were to estimate how much I’ve spent on cheaper white tops, none of which have quite fit the bill, I’m sure it would quickly add up to the price of this silk top.
This week on the Wednesday Wish, I think I have hit on something that I might actually buy. No, I haven’t lost the run of myself … clearly I’ll be waiting for the sales! But do you agree? Would this be worthwhile investment?
