Frugal Fashion Fridays-Purple Ladder Sleeve Rouched Side Tunic

I found this top at DEB shops a few weeks ago, on a shopping spree with my best friend, Danielle. This purple ladder sleeve rouched side tunic is made up of 94% rayon, and 6% spandex. The sleeves are basically cut out in a ladder design (hence the name), and it has a nice rouching on the sides of the top, near the bottom.

You could wear this top with jeans or a nice pair of slacks, depending on where you are going. The only issue I've had with it, is trying to find a bra to wear that won't show as badly as the one I have on in the following picture.
You may want to go with a strapless bra, or a bra with clear straps when you wear this. You'll also want it to be of a darker color, as a lighter one may show through the thin material of the top a little bit. It's all up to you. Because of the spandex aspect of this top, it does cling a little bit, but because of the rouching at the bottom, you could wear the top pulled up a little bit around your waist, if you don't like how it's resting on your silhouette. This top is very comfortable & airy, but it's probably best as a spring/summer time top, because of the sleeves. I don't know if I'd wear it in the fall or winter, as my shoulders would probably get pretty cold (even with a jacket on). It's all up to you though. It is machine washable, so you can just throw it in with your regular laundry when it comes time to clean it.

This top was originally around $15.00, but when I bought it, it was on clearance, which brought it down to around $7.50. However, the store was having a half off clearance prices sale, which means I actually got this top for around $3.75! How awesome is that, ladies!? Let's just say it pays to shop clearance sales! Especially when they are as good as this one was! :) Until next time, take care & stay safe!

Later gators,
