JUST what I was looking for

Considering the fact that it’s so key to the success of so many outfits, a really nice, unadorned silk cami that doesn’t cost a ton shouldn’t be too hard to find. And yet. I need a few to get me through the summer, and have been searching madly and—as is so often the case when one is out on a very specific retail mission—failing at every turn. Eventually I just let go, hoping that it would soon just come to me—like how you locate your keys the minute you stop obsessing over where you left them. And so in fact it has: this one from J. Crew costs $50—not particularly a bargain, but plenty reasonable. And comes in nude too, which is huge.

    I know exactly what you mean. I had to go to five or six stores to find v-neck tees that weren’t too low-cut. Cleavage has a place and time, and the office is not it, imho. And the rules are different for people with big chests, I think. (I do not advocate for them, but otoh, I hear reduction is a major surgery so better to just live with them.)

    And then the sleeves were wrong, but I bought them anyway.

    Fifty seems a lot to pay but that is a perfect cami.

    What would one wear underneath? A strapless bra? I love it but have no idea how to wear it!

      I usually wear the cami itself as an underpinning, so I’ll just wear my regular bra and not care so much if I’ve got a million straps going on. And if you’ve got a bra with particularly cute straps, it can be a kind of cute look on its own too.
