Sometime back in spring I decided I needed a red striped top.
Like, really needed a red striped top.
I’d obviously seen someone hideously cool wearing one over on Instagram and was like guuuuuurl gotta get herself in on that action. (In my head I was thinking red lip, red striped tee, blue jeans and some Converse and BAM off-duty chic nailed like a boss).
And what dya know, there was approximately 3725637 different navy and white striped tees and not one single eeny weeny red striped one.
There was a J.Crew one but alas I didn’t have a spare house deposit sitting around waiting for me to spend it on a t-shirt. Shocker.
Anyway, fast forward a fashion season or two and HELLO RED STRIPED TOPS AS FAR AS THE EYE CAN SEE.
Now, it’s a smidge pricier than you’d really want to pay for a simple striped jersey tee – it is £24.99. But hello, LOOK AT IT.
It obviously has ‘love’ embroidered across the chest, but also has a couple of little love hearts embroidered on each sleeve, so I can only assume that’s what’s pushing the price up.
I have to apologise that the top isn’t that easy to see in these snaps – basically we were shooting on a private estate and after about 37 seconds an old lady started walking towards us so we aborted mission before I’d had a chance to whack my camo jacket off.
Soz and that. Outfit shooting is v glamorous at all times.
But yeah, it’s one of those tops that’s already getting a fantastic cost per wear – the sort of thing I keep pulling out the wash basket and dousing in Febreeze because <3
And can you ever really have too many striped tops in your wardrobe?
I THINK NOT.
Anyway yeah, it finally came online over the weekend and is still available in every size so go fly my pretties. FLY. FLY. FLY.
No, you’re an enabler.
