This post is kind of a gut-check.

I am loving this top (see photos below and find 1). It has the puffed sleeves and a shaped silhouette that I love.

The problem is that it is not a perfect fit and feels a bit fussy.

I am thinking that I should send this one back and get one that does not have bust darts or shaping (find 2). (This is g-star btw, and they have another really cool one, kind of like this one but straighter with some stitching.)

With a straighter shirt, though, I think I would have to tuck, or else it is too voluminous. But if the shirt has enough structure (ie: fabric is thick enough), it should puff out nicely and look ok, right?

I do love the girly-girl elements of this one though. It’s just’s fussy.

I’ll post some finds when I’m back at my desk.
