Fact of life: When you don’t need something is when it’s readily available. However, when you actually need/want an item it’s no where to be found.
Doesn’t it always go that way?!
Shopping can be frustrating — even for the most seasoned pros.
(Four months later, I’m still on the hunt for these CHANEL SLINGBACKS, by the way…)
When a piece is limited, seasonal or a designer “it” item, I understand the need to move quickly and be decisive about your purchase. However, I never thought I would encounter the same struggle when it came to the basic blue + white striped blouse.
They’re a dime-a-dozen, no!?
At least, that’s what I thought.
When it was time to pull the trigger on a menswear-inspired, striped, cotton button down, I struggled big time. No matter where I looked, there was no basic blouse to be found. They were all either too trendy, too frilly, or too summery for my taste.
So when I finally came across this STRIPED BLOUSE from ZARA, I just knew it was meant to be. It was the perfect blend of minimalist and classic, but with a whimsical twist — a true retail victory at under $40.
Now that I own my perfect blue + white striped blouse (I’ve already worn it twice!), I figured I would save you all the frustration I went through and share with you some shirting finds that you need to jump on now… because as we know, they won’t be around later!
