Last fall I fel that way about gold ballet flats. I had a mental image of what I wanted, but I had to do a fair amount of research and shopping in order to find a pair that lived up to my mental image. After and exhaustive several mall, many website search I finally found them at the Cole-Haan outlet I did feel temporarily as though my wardrobe was complete.
Now it is a brown t-shirt. Not just any old brown t-shirt, but a nice brown t-shirt, what I like to call a "dressy t-shirt." Not a grey t-shirt, not a beige t-shirt, but a brown t-shirt. The added complication is that it has to come in petite sizes. I am short and regular t-shirts are usually way too long. Unfortunately brown is not a big color for spring and early summer clothes. At least not from what I've seen in stores. I've seen a few options that almost qualify such as:
|from Ann Taylor Loft|
|from Eddie Bauer|
But I'm still not in love. Not crazy about the beige-ness of the shirt form Ann Taylor Loft even though I do like the design. I like the color of the Eddie Bauer shirt, but I'n not crazy about the detail around the buttons. Last night I went so far as to order these two t-shirts from Old Navy because I had a 20% off coupon and their petite sizes fit me well.
But I am not convinced either of these will be the t-shirt I am after. Anyone have any suggestions? I am willing to spend a little more than I usually would to fulfill this clear wardrobe need.
