wearing: secret squirrel stripes

I've been waiting for this Secret Squirrel top to arrive for a while now. I ordered it late on a Tuesday night, only to be told at the check out that they ship orders on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Express shipping doesn't really feel like express shipping when you have to wait two days for it ship and there's a weekend in the way of delivery times. Anyway, this shirt has an oversized fit and nifty zippers at the sides. It's an ideal slouchy shirt. I think it's going to be getting a lot of wear this winter. Also, thanks to everyone who's voted for my entry in the Splendour in the Grass PIC ME! competition. To those without Facebook accounts who can't vote, don't worry because I still appreciate the thought! I've snuck into the Top 5 so am very excited about that. The main thing now is to stay in the Top 5 and not get nudged out. Remember you can vote once a day, until May 27 (this Friday). If you haven't already voted or would like to vote again click: here. Each and every vote is greatly appreciated.

  7. So good. I looked for a similar breton-y striped top while thrifting all weekend but no dice. I may have to resort to buying one too! This particular specimen is wonderful, quirky but still perfectly simple.

  8. @Tinu & @JennyOng: thanks girls

    @Hannah: the label is really coming along in leaps and bounds. So much stuff I want! haha

    @herecomesthesun: I'm very impatient when it comes to my online orders haha. Even though it technically came in one business day it felt like foreverrr. Thanks for voting too. I hope I don't come across as too plead-y with the voting :S

    @BlithelyUnaware: my champion tip would be to buy things on a Monday/Tuesday morning to make the most of express shipping.

    @TheVelvetBow: A good breton top is hard to find. If I remember correctly I think there are some pretty decent ones in Sportsgirl. Or for a bit of a splurge the APC ones are always good.

  13. I'm sure I don't need to tell you how envious I am of your buy :P
    It looks cute with the pink pants too.
    I've voted for you a few times now :)
    Although I must say, I find the comp quite unfair to those of us who might like to attend for the first time... I geeeeez :/
    Oh well. Goodluck anyway!

  14. The colours are so pretty! I want like a super long tule skirt in that same pink.
    oh yeah and I love pretty much anything with zippers :P
    zippers are the best ♡

    -- by the way, AA polish is totally overpriced here too T__T I got mine in america, it's like 3 bottles for $15 there! siiggghhh

  18. Oh I hope you win! And I love the uniqueness of your top, zippers on the side does give them such a unique characteristics. Sometimes I expect express shipping to be overnight!

  20. @hollypop: thank you!

    @stacee: yup. Pastel pants all the way.

    @Hannah: Thank you for voting! I wish I could see everyone who voted for me to say thankyou, but it will only let me see which of my FB friends have voted. Which kind of makes sense privacy-wise. I think they should run a comp for Splendour newbies too!

    @Sofie: a long tulle skirt would be amazing!

    @VictoireJin: I didn't notice the zippers at first but when I did I know I definitely had to buy the shirt! haha

    @Rachel @RDYN!: Thank you

    @danielle: I'm predicting I'll be spending a lot of 'bored time' just zipping the zippers haha

  27. Oh I love the striped top and the side zipper detail! It's so subtle but it adds the extra touch that the shirt needs!

    I've actually never heard much about YesStyle but I decided to check it out and found quite a few blouses that I'm hoping to get! The tops are one size so I know I won't have a problem with sizing since the one that I got fits perfectly! Hopefully I won't encounter too many problems with them in the future!

  33. You know what, you're so right. Finding the perfect Breton top in a thrift store is really hard. At least this one you've bought means you won't have to continue searching. Love the exposed zip too, so rad xo

  34. Totally adorable shirt!
    I want it now.
