When off-the-shoulder tops started coming back in style, I wasn’t a fan. They didn’t seem practical. What if I raised my hand to ask a question, or wanted to do any sort of hand gesture above my waist? It seemed inevitable that I’d be fussing with the shirt to keep it nicely on my shoulders, or would have to somehow stay relatively still when I wore it. Staying still is not really my thing.
I tried on a few that flew up to my neck at the first sign of movement, but I finally stumbled upon a gem. My sweet friend Cara of Vetta Capsule just came out with this beautiful off-the-shoulder blouse for Saks Fifth Avenue. I love it.
Cara lived in Manhattan working in the fashion industry when I was still in LA. When I traveled to New York for Fashion Week or a shoot, I would live at her apartment for days on end. We’d talk over wine about her dream of having her own ethical clothing collection. Last year it came to fruition as she launched Vetta on Kickstarter. Now a little over a year later her clothes are in Saks!
I am so inspired by her hard work and vision to create an ethical, American-made clothing brand. On top of that, the pieces are beautiful, versatile, and well-made.
