Top: Jay Jays
Cardigan: Friends of Couture
Shoes: Rocket Dog
Jay Jays has been very coy about this, but I was excited to discover the other day that they’re venturing into 2XL’s. Sort of. It only seems to be in a limited number of pieces, but because this striped top was one of them, I was happy.
I’ve been looking for a red and white striped top for while – I’d envisaged something with bolder stripes than this, but at $12 I’m not complaining. The new 2XL is probably on par with a size 18, and it’s a more flattering fit than my Giordano striped top. It has little puff shoulders and a wide collar-bone exposing neckline, so while it looks good layered under cardigans, it’ll look equally good when the weather warms and I want to wear it by itself.
On the topic of cardigans – I’m wearing the “Magic at Midnight” cardigan that I had on my wishlist back in May. The Sophisticate’s Mum actually gave it to me on my birthday, and I love it as much as I thought I would
