“I often think that a slightly exposed shoulder emerging from a long satin nightgown packed more sex than two naked bodies in bed” - Bette Davis

I'm attempting to pay more attention to detail...as I recognize the tendency within myself to veer towards the blazingly obvious rather than the elusively subtle. Hence my interest in the Simone Shailes sweater (which, from a distance could just be another navy turtleneck) and the Pamela Love cuff (the detail work on which gives me a tactile thrill whenever I wear it).

In this restrained (yet admittedly lush) vein I find myself drawn towards the shoulders on Rachel Comey's detached-sleeve tees. I'm not a fan of upper arms...not that mine are particularly abhorrent, I just burn so easily that during the warmer months I prefer more coverage versus less...but a flash of shoulder...a hint of skin...is different...subtle, and an upgrade from "yet another tee".

And, I believe, a good candidate for a "DIY homage to..." version; once I locate the right tee to dismember.

    Undeniably adorable ... but also agree that it's a DIY project waiting to happen.

    DIY, definitely. You could really customize the shapes, sizes, and placement of the cutouts.

    see, i would pay for this. not sure how much, but i would. her version is a knit top it looks like, rather than a tee.

    up & down town - agreed, it is more of a knit than a tee...but I'm hoping to find something of a similar weight that I can DIY...
