stripes and florals

i saw this T by Alexander Wang striped top paired with a floral rachel comey skirt at stels last week and thought it would make such a lovely outfit for spring. or for 'resort' wear, if you're going anywhere warm this winter. the top is very sheer and lightweight, but drapes amazingly thanks to the rayon+linen. of course, i'm bundled up in wool socks and blankets, so this is merely an exercise in wishful thinking.

you can get the top ($98) for 40% off with 40GRECHEN09 until Nov. 30. all regular priced items at standard deviation are 40%, and sale items are 20% off (20GRECHEN09).

i, for one, am saving my pennies for the sale in less than three weeks. wiksten at 40% off? not to mention my inability to say no to mociun tees and dresses. new york sure has a way of parting me with my money.

Erica, I have to do a shameless plug for one of my favorite etsy seamstresses; it's stripes so I of course thought of you! I just got mine, and it's nice and stretchy but cottony, heavier than one might expect, and the neckline with the contrast striping is so cute! Plus she's selling them for a steal! Here's the link, but if it doesn't work her sellername is

i just saw that top last night, glad to hear that you love it! ursula is making me a skirt, and i can't wait to see it in person.

Oh my gosh, that's too funny! Ursula is the best, and the dress I have of hers is one of my favorites. Hope you love your skirt.
