I realize I never completed my "Gibbs' Rules of Wardrobe Development" (see Wardrobe natterings).
This came to mind as I contemplated the above top, since rule #2 clearly states: "Never shop at Banana Republic."
The top is currently on sale at $29.99 from $45. I really did consider buying it, and not just because they brought out the dishy model. (Darn the dishy models!--at their feet lie a thousand wallets torn asunder.)
The thing is, it just looks handy. Were it rendered dressily enough, in fabric, cut and color, it could function as an office-friendly top--just plunk a jacket or cardigan over it. Then, on the weekend, you could bring it out as a casual hot-weather top, with a skinny camisole under it to pop the floral cut-outs, or even just a nude bra (I'd have to see it, but it seems to me it would work).
Ah, but... I did drop into Banana on the weekend, and as usual ended up kicking myself. They didn't have this top at hand, and I found nothing else fitting-room-worthy. In fact, the overall lacklustre quality inspired me not to buy this tank online. sighs
The idea though, remains of interest...why not a dual-purpose top?
