Dear Snapshot Fashion...

This morning I received a comment from a very stylish blogger, Diya.

She asked:
I've been looking for a simple, thin black and white striped form-fitting long sleeve top and you'll think they're everywhere but I can't find one! Can you help?

So I took it upon myself to help out a fellow fashionista. This request didn't sound too difficult because I swear I see these tops everywhere. But, to my surprise this was the hardest thing to come by! Maybe a few months ago before the spring clothing was put out it might have been a bit more common to find. Now Diya, if you change your mind and are fine with short sleeves, cardigans, 3/4 sleeves, or different colors...let me know. Because I came across a TON of those.

Can you believe I found ONE top? ONE! O-N-E!!!!!! And technically it isn't even really a top...but a bodysuit. Personally, I love bodysuits. I tend to wear my tops tucked in most of the time, and wearing a bodysuit just keeps everything neatly in place.

This Printed Cotton Spandex Jersey Double U-Neck Long Sleeve Bodysuit from American Apparel will do the trick for you! And as an added bonus, the back of this is AMAZING! Don't you think? For $36 this bodysuit is a must have. No matter if you wear it with jeans, black pants, or a mini skirt...you'll always look fabulous in it.

Diya, I really hope this helped a little!!!

Oh, I do love the scoop back on this!

i love these low cut backs that american apparel has and i'm loving the bodysuit trend as well. it makes layering so much less of a hassle. :)

I'm fine with 3/4 sleeves... but I think this MIGHT work. however I'm always a bit weary of bodysuits due to ummm complications during going to the restroom. However, thanks so much! I will have to go check it out at the AA near here. <3

PS. I also thought this would be the easiest thing ever when I was trying to get one...and there weren't any ANYWHERE. Thanks so much!

well quite often they have "crotch snaps"...but i don't know if this one does or not.

Why is it that everytime you want something, it's so hard to find? But when you don't need it, it is everywhere. Love the striped bodysuit you found. xoxo

Diya said...

here's to hoping that this one has crotch snaps! lol.

You are so right - I haven't found the perfect one yet either. I want a loose-fitting/picasso/coco chanel-esque stripe shirt. I won't hold my breath!

I share Diya's contentions about body suits. They are a huge complication during wash room visits.

That said, you have an Amazing find there. It's great to see fellow fashionistas lending a helping hand to one another. Way to go!

Oooh I love this bodysuit... bodysuits are awesome! and AA has the best (and quite affordable) ones. The back detail on this one is pretty, but I'm iffy because of my "bigger" bosom. hee hee. :)

xx Love & Aloha
