turquoisepassion 's Thoughts:

This is dangerously close to an outfit repeat but I figured since I wear this as an “uniform” of sorts in real life, I should post this again online. I was excited to finally obtain a striped shirt that’s as close to perfect as I’m probably going to get without breaking down and buying the $50+ version. In searching for certain basics over the past three years, I’ve realized how difficult it is to find the perfect, non-trendy basic within budget. I can always find striped shirts with sequined shoulders, in a cropped silhouette, or in the short sleeve or skirt form. However, the perfect long-sleeved, black/navy and white, thin striped shirt has eluded me for so many years. I can always get an APC shirt but it’s hard to invest in cotton basics that I wash often when I have to deal with industrial strength washing machines at the moment. I’ve also been looking for chunky cable-knit cardigans in cotton (as opposed to acrylic), perfect leather ballet flats in black (I might eventually invest in a pair of Repettos), and button-downs in wrinkle-free cotton (is there such a thing? In any case I’m usually in too much of a hurry to iron). If anyone have suggestions, please share.
