Hmm. I was deeply enamored with this stretch lace top when I first ordered it from Newport News. So much so that I got it in black, too. But, like all stretch lace its lifespan has been relatively short. I’ve mentioned before that I’m surprised when companies that usually focus on good quality resort to using stretch lace, as Spiegel did with a certain skirt. I rarely buy items made with this stuff now. They just don’t last long before little elastic treads start to break at the seams and stick out all over the place. I might get one or two more wearings out of this top, but it will definitely be retired soon.
The lovely bell sleeves and scalloped edges make this blouse almost worth the price, despite the little time we’ve had together. Almost.
At least today’s shoes are amazing. 🙂
