Last week I jokingly told a co-worker that we might have to do an intervention because of her frequent topknot: “There’s a fine line between a signature look and a crippling addiction,” I said.
This weekend, I sent her this picture from the dressing room at the J. Crew outlet store (here everything was half-price), with only that same quote as text.
I put back three of the shirts — sadly including the one at far right, which I loved the print and color of. But it was made of such lightweight cotton that the areas where two layers of fabric overlapped — patch pocket, placket — looked different from the rest of the garment. (That’s a shirt dealbreaker.)
