Nine West Top, Medium

Though it looks brown in some photos, it's actually taupe with a lot of grey. The photo above shows its colour most accurately.

About the Item:
I was thrilled, years ago, when I found this super flattering dress up/dress down top. Even on the hanger, I suspected it would look great, and I was right! I bought it shortly after my daughter was born, when my shape was very changeable and my chest was ample, but it still fit terrifically in the bust, due to the gauge of the fabric and the good construction of the garment. It shows off one's arms to good effect.

Why it's time to say goodbye: I have owned this for a long time and worn it often. It's a bit large on me now and I've enjoyed it enough to happily give it to a new home.

Plus Points:
  • Lovely neutral taupe that transcends "beige"
  • Beautiful silk cowl
  • Great under jacket
  • Very comfortable
  • Can dress up or down - looks terrific with jeans
Size: Medium (the fabric has give, making it a generous medium)

Flat Measurements:

Armpit - Armpit: 17.5 inches
Length: 21.5 inches

Asking: Shipping only - from Canada. I cost the shipping and let you know...

Note: I have owned this item for years and have worn it well. It's in good, but not perfect condition. (There is slight discoloration on the silk which I've tried to indicate with flash and non-flash photos, but it doesn't show in the pics. Although you can see it when you flatten the silk and look, it is not at all visible when you are wearing the top.) I think it cost about $60.00, discounted at Winners (would have been about $90 at 9West shops).

Listing End Date: ENDED, THANKS!
