Well hello again to you all. This week I planned to deviate a bit from the recent US shopping trip reviews with a review of this spring’s grunge style, but let’s get back to that next week. The reason for this sudden change of plans was the Campbell & Kate parcel waiting for me when I got home today, and I just had to try it on immediately to compare it to the high street shirt I had been wearing.

The high street shirt from Seppälä – a Finnish chain store. It sort of fit without peekaboo gaping, but it’s obvious that it’s too tight around the bosom.

Easy to guess which was a better fit–the Campbell & Kate shirt of course! The high street spring trend coral shirt was a very decent fit for what the shirt is, especially it being from a Nordic high street store which tend to be bigger around the bust and roomier around the shoulders. That is because statistically the Nordics are a busty and tall region on the world map. I’m only 5’4″ myself, though, only an inch taller than Darlene.

Campbell & Kate shirt, fits like a glove! Material is soft and nice and has enough elasticity to make it comfortable to wear. Personally like it most when buttoned all the way up! Dress pants are by NYDJ and the jacket is the Nine West one that you’ve seen in the past weeks.

Please excuse the bra. I was only trying the shirt on after work! I’m not wearing it outside like this. 🙂 I’m so happy to finally add a comfortable and well-fitting classic white shirt to my wardrobe and to start styling it. I have tons of styling ideas buzzing in my head and would love to hear your favorite ways of wearing a classic white shirt–with jeans and casual shoes to lunch on a Saturday or strictly to the office?

A note from Darlene: I promise I didn’t put Tina up to writing this post, and she paid for her own shirt, but of course I’m thrilled that it looks so amazing on her and that she wanted to write about it. You can see two more photos of her wearing a C&K shirt last October on FB (front view and side view), including shirt and bra size information. Don’t worry about hurting my feelings if you have any critical observations to make in the comments. Personally, I can’t wait to see how else she wears it.
