shelli segal ruffle lace topIf you haven't figured it out by now, this weekend rings in the Chinese New Year, so rest assured that I will be focusing pretty famously on all things Asian. Now while I am usually not wildly fond of Mandarin collars because I seem to have problems with their causing much itching and discomfort around my neck, I make an exception for this weekend, particularly for the Ruffle Lace Top by Shelli Segal for Laundry. The top features a Mandarin style collar with the typical cap-sleeve styling of a qi pao. It may be lace, but it's more modest than you think, since it overlays an opaque nylon lining. What's lovely about this top? It does double trend duty by fitting in with the Romantic trend for spring.

The Ruffle Lace Top by Shelli Segal for Laundry is $109.90 at Nordstrom.
