Ann,

Dashing from the essential Healy skirt and Dupont top you wrote about yesterday (and I  have worn both several times in the last month), we are charging into the enlightened territory with the fabulous Phillips Top from the Julia Farr Collection. Wow, this is a gorgeous top! (And just not because we designed it.)  It has beautiful lines in a sumptuous silk that is a great top for a fun cocktail party or dinner – or as the name suggests, worn to an exhibit reception at the Phillips Collection, America’s first museum of modern art housed in the Georgian Revival home of its founder, Duncan Phillips.  The gallery showcases superb works of contemporary art in an intimate setting.  Like the museum for which it’s named, the enlightened Phillips Top combines a modern look with timeless appeal.

The top from the front, side, and back:

It is fitted a the bust, falling straight to the hip-bone. It can be worn out or tucked in to a skirt or both fitted and full pants.  Versatile yet elegant, the Phillips top can be part of a chic wardrobe for years to come.  I wore the top to a Fashion for a Cause with full legged white pants:

But it’s also fabulous back to a tailored pant, shown here front and center at Kansas City’s Hudson & Jane boutique.

You may get tired of me in the Phillips, Ann, but I can’t think of a party where I wouldn’t want to wear this top!
