A Side of Lemons Please


Sunnies: Betsey Johnson| Denim jacket: Michael Kors| Top: c/o Ruby Linker
Tulle skirt: Etsy vendor, old (worn here, here, and here)| Boots: Betsey Johnson, also worn here

Today’s style story features a funky tee from Ruby Linker, a California based brand that offers limited edition tees styled with varying shapes and proportions. 

I was invited to participate in the Ruby Linker Style Challenge, and given the fact that I love a challenge- I selected this eclectic lemon print top. It actually fits like a tunic (see here), and is ideally styled with jeans- in my mind I picture skinnies or a cute boyfriend cut. However, I didn’t want to style it with jeans, because it felt…well… boring! LOL! So I opted to step outside of my styling norms and to have some fun with a look that is just as eclectic and funky as the tee itself : )


Interesting facts: Ruby Linker's unique digital designs are transferred to fabric. The company uses a state-of-the-art printing technique called dye-sublimation. This technique transfers thin sheets of color onto paper that is then heated, forcing the dye to vaporize and form a chemical bond with the cloth. The brand states that their garments are based on expressive art that could just as easily been displayed on a canvas or behind a glass frame, but instead have been created as clothing. 


Until next time,
XO

  9. Of course I'm going to automatically love anything involving an appearance of the tulle skirt, but the lemon shirt takes it to the next level. :) Thanks for introducing us all to Ruby Linker! I am in love with their prints and hope to buy a shirt soon.

    1. The fullness of this skirt was the selling point for sure- I've had it now for almost 4 years and it is still great! Thank you :)
