Surprised by the Trina Turk Accomplice TopDuring the blogger meet up at the Trina Turk Boutique in Burlingame a few weeks ago, I ended up picking up the Trina Turk Accomplice Top. To be honest, the top did not look like much on the hanger, and I probably wouldn’t have tried it on if the lovely salesperson Betsy didn’t suggest it.
I loved the top the minute I put it on. It is very comfortable, and I love the fit. It’s roomy but not boxy, which I had feared it would be from just looking at it on the hanger. I guess I am used to tunic-length tops, and a shorter top looked very different. But instead of being boxy, the top drapes nicely.
Comfortable Yet Put-Together OutfitI paired the top with comfortable, ancient, roomy jeans and a basic black blazer from Zara and loved how effortlessly the outfit came together. I actually wasn’t feeling very well on the day I was wearing this outfit, and I was very comfortable yet presentable.

I guess the lesson learned here is that you can’t judge a garment from what it looks like on the hanger. I probably should try on a lot more clothes! Also, a good salesperson can really steer you in the right direction. Thanks, Betsy and Trina Turk Burlingame for helping me find a great addition to my wardrobe!
I know that I’ll get lots and lots of wear out of this top and am already planning several outfits that include the top.
Questions: Do you go by what clothes look like on the hanger? I have to admit that I usually judge clothes by what they look like on the hanger. This experience taught me that I should try on a lot more things! Do you try on many options? I don’t. I should change that, too…
