I need some.
I have sufficient quantities of cute/witty tshirts for pool and the like. I have a reasonable amount of shirts for work. What I don’t have, is shirts I like for going out.
Because shirts for going out need to be cute, but not over the top. I need to be able to wear it to a variety of locations, from semi-nice restaurants to lounges to the ever-present possibility of pool on a weekend night. And I don’t want to look schlubby, or overdressed, or like I’m desperately trying to recapture my undergrad days through bellybutton exposure.
But I HATE tunic tops. Loathe them! And I’m getting bored with tops in solids – I’d like a couple things in prints, but nothing so memorable that I couldn’t wear it more than once. I want to look cute! But not teenybopper cute! I’m soboredicouldcry by Limited and Express, but have not the budget for more than $50 or so per shirt.
Also, given that I am a BOUS (Blogger of Unusual Stature), I’d prefer the tops to not be of the sort that are supposed to end right at the waist – because even if those are technically supposed to conceal the midriff, they will not, so much, on me.
Anyone have any ideas? Where do you shop that isn’t a massive chain? How do you avoid the dreaded Dolman sleeve? Where can I find some clooooootheeessssss?
