The search for that perfect white shirt.

I am constantly in the search for that perfect white shirt. The perfect shoulder fit, crisp, pristine cotton, fit that skims your body, perfect collar length; finding that shirt is pure ecstasy. I found my most recent soul-shirt at Cottonworld in Calcutta. It's perfect, we're very happy together.

Trawling like I usually do while absconding from exam prep, I happened to stumble onto many, many fantastic tops. So I decided  that doing a post might be a good way to end my bloggers block.

This DAY BERGER ET MIKKELSEN number incorporates heavy lace and sheer cotton. Recipe for awesomesauce, I say.

Try this contrast piping DKNY blouse with a tiny silk tulip skirt to look like the perfect Stepford wife gone rogue.

This Donna Karan tunic would be perfect against a sparkling Maldivian horizon.

Oh Alber! You're such a tease. Lanvin keeps it whimsical with a bow-embellished silk tee.

Wear this draped white Michael Kors top for a night on the town. White is one of those few exceptional light colours that I feel look as good at night as do they in the day.

Miu Miu is one my newer favourite labels and ever since I saw this sequined-collar top on a mannequin, I can't stop thinking about it. 

Miu Miu smashes it with another great white top - loving the tiers!

Another Black/White beauty, this time from Sandro. I can just imagine it being worn with a bright pair of tailored shorts.

Temperley London makes the most whimsical, exquisite shirts and this here is no exception. The lace and pin-tuck panels make for a perfect day to night piece.

Not a fan of the Pell, but give me a peter pan collar and I'm on board. This is from The Row.

To end on a high note, here's an absolutely AMAZING Prabal Gurung embellished-tulle blouse. Could it be more perfect? I think Prabal is one of the greatest designers of his generation, his designs are effortlessly chic and oh-so pretty, without ever being boring. I have a feeling he's going to hit a Marc Jacobs level high soon enough.

Miss me, I promise (again!) to post more often.

  1. I always use to shy away from white shirts because they make your face so prominent, but these are some pretty good buys. I like the one with the sequined collar.
