9 Dec


. . . sorry about the yelling. It’s just that visions of sugar plum fairies and  nutcrackers and packages wrapped up in string were dancing around my head – and in all of my visions, I was wearing this shirt. My  wallet was prepared for the impending hemorrhage, my closet had an empty hanger eagerly awaiting, my Christmas outfit was planned . . . and J. Crew crushed my sugar plum fairy dreams. I’ve looked for a replacement, but there are no other tartan shirts out there quite as crisp and classic.


I have had big plans to pair this baby with a sparkling skirt.

    Check this one out: http://canvas.landsend.com/pp/PatternPoplinShirt~212446_-1.html?bcc=y&action=order_more&sku_0=::TYS&CM_MERCH=IDX_00017__0000002215&origin=index. Not exactly the same, but I can say (since I own it) that it is super cute and would be perfect with a sparkly number. There is a cute little button on the back too!

      Thanks, Morgan! That Lands’ End number in Dark Spruce is a great alternative. Love the button – and the price!

    Or this little guy (but, pricier): http://www.madewell.com/madewell_category/SHIRTSTOPS/PRDOVR~33017/33017.jsp

    I hear you. Nothing like tartan and sparkles. If it doesn’t work out though, would gingham suffice? Then you can easily wear it year round too…http://www.jcrew.com/womens_category/shirtstops/casualshirts/PRDOVR~28642/28642.jsp (I tried this baby on in store and LOVED it). Zhush it up with some red accents and killer heels and I think you’d be pretty fab.

      I like the way you think! Those options are definitely more versatile & will still look great with the sequins!
