Alice in Chains

Banana Republic Earrings; Diane von Furstenberg Tank; Norma Kamali for Walmart Skirt; Simply Vera Tights; Nine West Shoes; Yves Saint Laurent Ring

In January, I was delighted to win Cafe Fashionista's giveaway with Shopbop. I put the gift card toward the Dalmas Top by Diane von Furstenberg.

The chiffon-wrapped chains are perfectly subtle by day - shimmering only slightly in the sunlight.

But at night, the flash of a camera illuminates an undeniable edge to the otherwise understated tank.


  1. The place was dark and dusty and half-lost
    In tangles of old alleys near the quays,
    Reeking of strange thing brought in from the seas,
    And with queer curls of fog that west winds tossed,
    Small lozenge panes obscured by smoke and frost,
    Just showed the books, in piles like twisted trees,
    Rotting from floor to roof-congeries
    Of crumbling elder lore at little cost.

    I entered, charmed, and from a cobwebbed heap
    Took up the nearest tome and thumbed it through,
    Trembling at curious words that seemed to keep
    Some secret, monstrous if only one knew
    Then, looking for some seller old in craft,
    I could find nothing but a voice that laughed.

  2. What a lovely tank... great choice. It's really beautiful. xoxo
