(Outfit Of The Yesterday) LOFT Striped Crochet Trim Shell, Part One

♫: Doomsday – Elvis Perkins

I picked up the Striped Crochet Trim Shell from LOFT a few weeks ago mostly because I was looking for a cute, breathable top that had a bit more substance than a normal knit tank or tee. This top fits the bill perfectly–it’s made of a light, machine washable linen, has a slight A-line shape with a hi-low shirttail hem, and (and!) vertical stripes. Vertical stripes! If horizontal stripes make a person look wider, then hey.

Will vertical stripes make a person look…taller?


Oh well, me and my t-rex arms still like it anyway. It runs a little loose and swingy; I’m wearing it below in a petite xxs. It’s currently on sale plus an extra 60% off too (making it just $18!), in case you want to grab it for yourself:
