Slash

After seeing me in this top, Mr. Mickey gave me a new nickname.



He says I need a stage name to go with my "Rockstar" image. (Judi Mancuso told me on Facebook this week that I was a Rockstar. LOL!) Alas, my greatest musical talent involves listening, so I will not be headlining for any rock bands under the name "Slash".




We joined a large group of dear friends for dinner on Friday evening where the top was a big hit. It shows a little skin while remaining fully covered. The fit is just loose enough not to show jiggly bits and the asymmetric neck and hemlines are clean, modern details.




Note that I wore my largest crystal hoops, no necklace, and a stack of related but different silver colored bracelets and a bold watch only. As in the construction of a sentence or building, the punctuation and accents need to go in the right place. You must determine when it is the right time to add or subtract based on the other elements.




The shoes are by Charles Jordan via Saks Off 5th. The studded grommet leather box clutch is old from T.J.Maxx.




Purple Poppy provided the Last Tango black top. I am wearing a size medium and paired it with smooth fitting side zip white pants provided by Fabrizio Gianni last year.

Thank you for joining us on this journey through midlife and beyond. The second fifty years are truly the best!

I am sure they can get more Barbara. This is the first time a company has sold out in less than one hour after the post. Please email them about the next shipment of the top.

Oh I love this top so much! I hope they can get more of them, since it's not just a lovely top, but a decent price.

What a great top, it looks evening-ey yet there's no need to worry about bra straps showing. No wonder it's selling well!

Lin said...
