Silk Military Shirt--The Look for Less


Hey you guys. I got this great silk military shirt that looks and feels exactly like the very expensive ones by Equipment. I ordered this one from Express because it was reasonably priced at $69.90 compared to the Equipment shirt priced at $178. I hoped it would be good quality and it really really is. I love it. I also own one by Equipment in pale pink photographed in yesterdays blog entry that I got on super sale from Shopbop.com and the feel and look of the two are the exact same. Anyway, at the end of the pics of me in the Express version, I've posted the ones from Express and Equipment for you to see for yourselves. Click on the pics to enlarge.

They are both so similar - I never would have been able to tell the difference! The shirt is beautiful - I love the idea of a "silk military shirt"...the contrast between the stiff military structure with a soft, feminine fabric is amazing.

Also, so glad you ordered them! I would LOVE to get all three as soon as possible, now that I know the Chanel nail polish quality is incredible! Definitely looking forward to seeing how they turned out for you!
