at least once during the holiday season, i have a wardrobe crisis. the year i was wearing a beautiful ivory cashmere sweater that i spilled a diet coke on while getting ready, or the red sequined skirt that i put my heel through when i foolishly put shoes on first. so with the holidays getting close, i need an emergency holiday outfit (e.h.o.) in my closet.
this satin top from old navy is a perfect choice – at $20, if the only place i wear it is the local wine bar, i can live with that. the colors are perfect for the season – in this lovely shade of wine, it guarantees no one will notice my tendency to spill my cabernet. but it’s also a standout in deep blue, and a classic in black. a few other things i love? straps wide enough to wear a regular bra, and cinching below the bust line to slim my waist. one word of advice: the top runs big, so order accordingly.
oh, and with the friends & family discount going on this weekend at old navy, that $20 top is actually only $14…at that price, you can afford to buy this one in all three shades! have fun at those parties and remember when that wardrobe crisis hits, don’t panic – just have an e.h.o. at the ready, and you’re set!
