I love the 2 tops featured with the skirts in this article. Are they originals or a pattern? They would both work well in my wardrobe. Thanks for any insights you can provide on the tops.
The white top is BCBG from Lord and Taylor, the yellow top is DKNY from Macy’s. Not sure you would be able to find them anymore. If you get the magazine, all the information about the garments and accessories is in the gutter of one of the pages of the article.
