As Jackie so elegantly illustrates, white really IS the new black. At least for blondes.

Today I am trying to salvage another of my NAS shopping mistakes. Yes, I confess. Not only did I cut those tags too early on the Kenneth Cole drapey sweater (now worn to perfection by LisaP) but I also got a bit too enthusiastic about this overly drapey Pleione mixed media top.

I'd been eyeing it on forum members for years in various colours. I really, really loved the idea of a drapey, soft, knit shirt for transitional weather work-at-home days. I loved the colour. And it was to replace a less-fab (but also less voluminous) version that I wore the heck out of last year. So, ignoring Angie's gentle advice and my own better judgement, I pulled the trigger.

And...reader....I bought TWO of these!!

Only to realize that all this volume really is too much for me.

I gave the white version to my daughter. She can wear it. Phew!!

But the magenta one I am keeping for its colour and trying my best to salvage. I'll never look as great as N-Marie does in hers, but semi-tucking and layering over a white jacquard knit shell does help a bit.
