obsessed -- t-bags.

Velvet by Graham & Spencer Ruffled Jersey V-Neck  Top
COVETING: Velvet by Graham & Spencer Ruffled Jersey V-neck Top

I am so in love with this ultra-pretty top. The turquoise shade is nothing short of stunning. I've found that turquoise, especially in the summer, is one of the most versatile colors that there is. It looks amazing on all skin tones and with all colorings, and goes with so many other shades. The pretty ruffles on this shirt, which would pair beautifully with gorgeous bracelets, cinch the fact that this stunning top must be mine.

While browsing on Shopbop (which I spend far more time doing than I'd like to admit), I came across a brand that I am positively in love with -- T-Bags. I was immediately drawn in by the company's simple, easy dresses that look as comfortable as a T-shirt but are far more fun and full of class. Summer cocktail party, anyone?

I generally shy away from animal prints -- especially colored ones. I know that they can be fabulous but have seen them done poorly so many times that I just can't muster the courage to try them out. This fun look may have changed my mind, though. I love the pink-on-blue pattern and perfect 60s-esque piping. The sweet, narrow keyhole in the back of the frock just adds to its perfection.

I really like this top. It's feminine without dripping in lace or jewels, and the bright orange shade is SO fun and very hot for summer. Perfect with denim cutoffs or crisp white shorts, this top could also be absolutely DARLING tucked into a high-waisted pencil skirt.

T-Bags Cami Dress

I LOVE this dress. While the shape is quite adorable, I have to say that the print is what really caught my attention. These bright colors are so fun and the print is vaguely reminiscent of balloons -- what could be better for a party? I am also in love with all of the fun details, like the tie-straps and smocked waist.

T-Bags Ruffle V Neck Dress

I simply am so in love with this dress. The green is the perfect mix of mint and grassiness, and the ruffle and smocked waist are just perfection. I am all about pieces that you can just throw on and go, and this dress is just that. Plus, how fab are the model's shoes?

T-Bags V Neck Pocket Dress

I'm ridiculously into the nautical trend right now, and this dress satisfies my need for seaworthy clothes beautifully. I love that the nude pumps are paired with the navy dress, and the white details on this frock are quite stunning and placed so well, especially at the chest pockets and sleeves -- too pretty!

What are YOU obsessed with right now?

these picks in the post are great because you can wear them out to a semi formal event as well as just wear them down the street to go shopping. I love all the ruffle that comes with them! And the x ray calendar, hmm maybe I will hang it on my office cubicle, LOL jk jk

molly YEH! said...

i LOVE t bags. i haven't found it in any stores.. i always just see it on shopbop and freak out when it goes on sale. but then i haven't tried any things on sale so i end up chickening out anyways. UGH.

Orchid said...

love the 2nd piping dress...its sexy!!!

this free bird said...

That v-neck pocket dress is adorable!!

And watch for t-bags on hautelook...it goes on there from time to time for very reasonable prices and they do include things that are really popular (saw a dress on sale that i'd previously seen on tori spelling. okay you got me. tori+dean=guiltypleasure)

I like that label in general and own a few dresses, but the material is really clingy, which I don't like! Also, a bit expensive for my unemployed atm self. But, most of their clothing is very versatile, so I suppose you do get the bang for your buck. I'm slightly obsessed with patterns (not just now, always!) so I like the first and third dresses best.

Great post! <3

all of the t-bags tops and dresses are adorable! theyre all so summery and would be perfect to keep cool during the hot weather! thanks for introducing them to me! :)

Valerie said...

I love it all, Josie! T-bags has the best day to night dresses. They had a sale on Gilt yesterday that was amazing. Of course all the best dresses sold out before I could get them though. That always seems to happen to me. That turquoise top is gorgeous. I agree that it's a color that looks great on all skin tones. Right now I'm obsessed with nude pumps! Haha. But you already knew that.

I'm sooooo into nautical anything right now, it's almost getting to be problematic. T-Bags is on hautelook all the time - the stuff is cute and all, but what's with the name??
