Blue Danube

Why I didn't buy this shirt, I really don't know. Revewing the rather extenstive collection of photos taken with Kerry at our last visit to Crimson & Clover, I ran across these pictures, of your humble narrator doing a happiness waltz in a lovely vintage french blue and white stripe seersucker shirt with lace trim. WAS I CRAZY? How could I NOT have purchased this shirt? 

Oh, yeah, I was TRYING TO BE GOOD. I was trying to keep my impulse under control. Bad, bad impulse, making me want to want to buy this adorable shirt with a blue so flattering to my skin tone. Well, if the shirt is still there this Friday, I just might not make the same mistake twice.

Oh, I love it! I do hope it's still there because it looks perfect on you! Love the shade.

And love Blue Danube. My sister is a ballerina and she danced to that in one of her earlier shows. (:
