Freckles in April: The Wednesday Want

The Wednesday Want

I spent an embarrassingly long time yesterday trying to figure out WHERE this shirt is from because holy smokes I love it. The colors, the loose style, the knot; it's all perfect.

I ran across it on Pinterest but of course the pin didn't take me back to the original source. I tried Tineye, which pointed me toward a couple dead ends (including InStyle, where I spent ages browsing through shirts, none of which was THIS shirt).

So I thought I'd turn it over to the blog...any one recognize this shirt? Please tell me it's $10 at Target.

Edit: Amy found it! You guys clearly have better online shopping skills than I do. It's by Chris Benz and can be found at the bargain sale price of $217.50 right here. If anyone runs across a cheaper reproduction, be sure to let me know!!

Edit again: there is some speculation that these shirts are not actually the same since the colors and sleeves are a bit different. But I looked up what Chris Benz's clothing tags look like and I'm pretty sure that's his label on the first one and I know for a fact that second one IS Chris Benz so..yes. Same shirt. Just cut from different pieces of the same fabric.

Pin It


  1. Hahahaha... I also hope it's $10 at Target... it's so cute, I want it! Thanks for sharing!

  2. I would start here:

  3. I've got no clue...but I hope for everybody's sake that it gets figured out asap!!! There will be tons of women strutting their stuff in this cute shirt.

  4. I just hate it when people don't link to gorgeous clothes, so I did a quick hunt for you... It's the 'Esther' top by Chris Benz ( and you can still get it on by the looks of it, but unfortunately not for $10! It is beautiful, let's hope a high street store make a copy eh?! Love your blog by the way! Xx

    Well now I am DYING to know, too! Such a cute shirt, and it takes the guesswork out of trying to knot it yourself, love!

  6. The colors look a lot prettier in the pinterest picture, dontchya think? So it's for sure the same shirt? If you compare the sleeves and colors and everything it looks quite different. Just curious!

  7. There is just enough difference between the shirts that there has to be a knockoff somewhere!

  8. Bargain sale price... ha! If you find something similar for much, much cheaper, let us know! It's gorgeous. =)

  9. Haha, I'm glad you put the second edit because I was wondering myself if it was the same shirt.

    North Meets South

  10. ah sheesh. I was really reading this and crossing my fingers that it was ten dollars at target too... then you edited, no bueno. shoot.

  11. I just ran across your blog. I'm also a Mormon Fashion Blogger and I absolutely love your blog and style!
    Btw, disappointed this shirt isn't $10 from Target too...

  12. I love your blog!!! Are you on bloglovin? I looked for link, but wasn't sure if I overlooked it. All the blogs are so different. I'm officially "following" you. :D
