Every Girl Needs A White Shirt

Bessie, the fabulous woman behind Bravoe Runway, wrote in one of her posts that one can never go wrong with a white shirt. And... she's right. A white shirt can make you appear neat, chic and well put together in an effortless manner. Last Thursday, it so happened that I was meeting a friend at a place that was teeming with peddlers selling thrifted clothes. And since she was running late, I thought I'd kill idle time by checking them out, and I scored this lovely white shirt.

White Shirt: Pheasant farm (Thrifted) Denim Cut-off shorts: Guess

Kinda blurry... but I love this shot :)

I *heart* the details of the collar

*Closer look*

I haven't heard of this brand ever, but when I checked out the side tags, it was all in Japanese, so errr.. obviously this is from Japan lol... What sold me to this shirt is the collar. The embroidery is just intricate, and it was in tiptop shape. It has a crisp plain collar, of the same fabric of the shirt, underneath the embroidered collar so it doesn't droop. And that blue ribbon at the edges of the embroidery adds a hint of Japanese school-girl vibe, but in a more age appropriate way. And best of all: this one costs $1.36! A fraction of what I would pay if this shirt was being sold at one of the boutiques at the shopping centre.

And since this shirt is thrifted, I'm linking this post up to spunky chateau's Thursdays Are For Thrifters Link Party. Technically, this is a shoe-in since I bought this shirt last Thursday *hahaha*. She hosts this event every Thursday for her readers to share their thrifted finds at her site. And she's a big fan of thrifted items as well. Do check out her blog and see for yourselves.

Hope you guys had a lovely weekend! 


P.S.: And yet, I receive another award! This time, it's from Kim of SassyUptownChic. Thanks for the award, Kim! To all my readers, do check her blog out, she's a very creative blogger, and she's a really nice and very thoughtful woman as well.

I have to agree that white blouse is a good choice to have, goes with almost anything but prefer without the embroidery. You look good in it btw.
