Joie de leaf

I love Joie. I love their prints, I love wearing silk, I love feeling just the tiniest bit more French when I slip one of their delicate pieces over my head. Unfortunately I could never afford, nor justify the splurge on their retail prices, at least not when I can find them elsewhere for so much less.

I'd been stalking this palm print tank on ebay, but the sellers were asking $75, which was still way too high. When Meg pulled it out of a rack at Roundabout last week and quickly calculated that it would only be $20, I was instantly sold.

Due to my shortness, and Joie's generous sizing, the straps on this size medium had to be shortened nearly two inches, but it was a minor alteration and I was so anxious to wear the top that I did it the very same day!

  2. This print of this top is gorgeous! And I love that it's an easy breezy top rather than the pants that I've been seeing. Visiting from the HowISummer link up.

  6. Gorgeous print - I had never heard of the Joie brand before. I think when you have been searching for an item so long and then its right there under your nose, it was just meant to be.

  12. I'm loving the palm print and tropical prints for that matter. I saw this top but agree I couldn't justify the price tag. Super cute look.

  14. Some things are worth waiting for - and a fabulous palm print is definitely one of them. The spot where you took these photos could not suit the look more perfectly. These photos look just like a summer ad campaign that I remember from years ago, I think it was for Ralph Lauren. And in case it isn't totally clear, that is definitely a compliment :)

  39. Love the combination of orange and blue. I think the blue helps the orange pattern of the skirt stand out even more.
