Collars & Lace

What I Wore:

Skirt: Smart Set
Cardi: Smart Set
Tights: Payless
Socks: Payless
Belt: Bealls

Today I am showcasing a few more items that I got on our trip to Florida. I am looking forward to getting a Target here in Canada because every time I have been I have found something awesome. Hopefully they will carry the same brands and products here. I am excited about this outfit because I absolutely LOVE this shirt! I mean how cool is the double collar on this puppy? I also really like how the hem curves down to be a little bit lower in the back. The only thing I dislike is that it pulls a bit at the chest. I tried on a size smaller while I was in the store and noticed it then. I hoped to alleviate the problem by purchasing the size up, which I didn;t try on but I assumed would be better. Alas it still happened once I had put my belt on it at home. I think it has something to do with the fabric since it is fairly light weight and a little slippery. I was really hoping I wouldn't have to sew in a snap like I have had to do with some of my other button down shirts/dresses, but I think I will have to now. It is really annoying because if I go the next size up when I encounter this problem  the rest of the shirt is too big. I just wish things fit properly so that I didn't have to spend all my time sewing snaps into clothes. And re-sewing buttons because they never do that properly either, but that's another issue entirely. Anyway, long rant aside I still love the collar and the general look of the shirt so that makes up for the slight chest gaping.
