Wisteria Tunic

A few weeks ago, while perusing Barnes and Noble, I noticed House Beautiful's March Issue:  "The Power of Pink".  The issue celebrated pink and its many decorating uses.  Due to my love of pink, I had to have this magazine.


Some of the highlights from the issue are:  a Q & A with Trina Turk, a Spotlight on Lilly's new furniture line, and a new favorite quote of mine:  "I tell husbands not be afraid of pink--there's nothing better than a man in a pink shirt." -Mimi McMakin.

I'm not sure if this issue is still on newsstands (the April issue may be out), but if it is, I highly recommend grabbing it!

Anyways, enough of House Beautiful, and on to my point.  While reading, I noticed a few things I liked from Wisteria, like this Starfish Garland.


I was intrigued enough to check out the website.  While I loved perusing their goods for the home, I don't have my own place yet, nor do I have tons of room to store things for my someday home.  What I do have room for, however, is...TUNICS!  And so now, I am sharing a BIG find with you-- Wisteria has these great white tunics on sale for $14.70!


I lusted after these for a few weeks, trying to decide if I wanted one or not.  They look a little long for me, but, then I realized, heck, for $14.70, I can wear it as a nightgown if it doesn't fit quite right!  


After deciding to get one, I had to decide which one I wanted.  I wasn't a big fan of the Keyhole Neckline Tunic, so I had to decide between the Square Neckline and Mandarin Collar (see above).  I ultimately decided on the Mandarin Collar thinking the neckline would go well with chunky necklaces and that it was a bit more chic.  


I ordered yesterday and will have to let you know how I like it once it arrives.

Do you like tunics?  What are your favorite summer wardrobe staples?

  22. I have been trying to track down this issue of House Beautiful; it seems it's sold out everywhere around here! I didn't think to check B&N, so I'll be heading there tomorrow for sure. Very jealous you snagged a copy!
