Saving Face

This post isn't so much about saving face as it is about saving a little money. The shirt I am wearing below with the adorable face silhouettes and carefully manicured hands as a collar is inspired by a more expensive version that retails for over $300, but my version from was only around $22 from SheIn. I love the quirky details of this shirt and that it can be worn with almost anything from jeans to this graphic print skirt that I picked up a couple of years ago from Banana Republic's collaboration with Marimekko. (By the way, I am really looking forward to the upcoming Target collaboration with Marimekko!) My husband actually picked out the clutch I am wearing today as a complement to my ensemble. He thought the vintage car on my clutch would enhance the face silhouette insofar as (at least he and I would like to think) it may be an homage to the original cover of F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby, featuring visage of (presumably) the character Daisy looking out over a bright skyline.

  4. I have always loved that face/portrait blouse and I am thinking of picking it up. Also, thanks for letting us know about these great collaborations. I need to check out the Banana Republic one. BTW, your husband did a great job choosing the car clutch. It gives the entire outfit a fun, whimsical retro feel, beautiful Katie!

  6. That shirt is too fun, and I think the way you styled it is perfect! The skirt adds to the whimsy but also adds polish, and I think your husband did well with the bag pick! I just love this!

  7. Hubby did very well with the clutch selection. I love the blouse...very Great Gatsby, indeed. Don't you love when you find a "steal" after seeing the "splurge"? Oh, I would be remiss if I didn't tell you how gorgeous those shoes are. Beautiful, Katie!

  8. That shirt is sooo adorable, and affordable!

    Sincerely, Jennie
