Thow Me a Lifeline

I'm standing very straight. It must be because I'm in uniform.
Loving the minnie pant with heels and a tunic lately.
Kicked up a notch here with subtle pattern mixing.

This is the popover tunic in lifesaver print. The fabric was also used for a dress but I didn't think the below-knee length was good for my shrimpy height so I decided on the tunic. Which can often be a dress on me. As you can see, it's appropriate tunic length so I don't know how it would be for someone taller, even though the description says "a generous length."
I do agree with "sumptuous" and "deliciously drapey" as descriptors
for the 100% silk material. It feels rich and luxurious.
The "signature print" is wonderful and interesting like an abstract painting.
It's intricate enough to not easily see where and how the pattern repeats.
And if you're stranded someplace, you can use it like a puzzle to pass the time. Or use it as a conversation starter by testing people's perception whether they see the lifesavers. Or four-petal flowers.

As much as I like the look of popovers, I hate the struggle to change out of it.
I came this close to getting stuck and calling out, "help!"

P.S. You'd think lifesavers would be a nautical theme but
the dark color is black, not navy blue.

  1. You look as sleek as a whippet there, I had never heard the term 'popover" before but I think they'd be fairly handy to have, I like the length too.

    1. Popovers used to mean the American version of Yorkshire pudding!

    1. Thanks, it is a great shirt. It's the sleeves that are "generous length." ;)

  5. I was also attracted to this print - but missed out on my size while waiting for a sale price. I have been buying/wearing popovers and I really love them more than a blouse...but was also relieved to learn that I am not the only one who has some difficulty getting out of it, lol!!

    1. I hope you can find it in your size. I know exactly what you mean, I love the way they look but they are not good for quick changes. And be sure to have someone to help you within yelling distance. ;)

    1. LOL, Lisa, maybe we can share. A random woman wanted to know where I got the pumps, I told her MW but that they're likely sold out, I was scared of the look in her eyes ... think she wanted to knock me over to take the shoes!
