09 Feb Shop SA | White Shirt by SiSi Collection
The white shirt in all its variations is a solid and sound investment for any woman. You can truly wear a crisp white shirt anywhere. Once upon a time I styled one simple white shirt five ways here.
It’s universal nature is probably why best friends Yasmin Furmie and Cynthia Allie decided to launch their collaborative label SiSi Collection with a series of white shirts in interesting cuts and fits. Cuts that can only be described as unique, yet refined. Edgy, yet completely feminine.But still classic.
After wanting to collaborate for years, the idea to create SiSi finally came to fruition in December 2016. The duo launched with a successful pop up event at a gallery that saw rails being emptied. I know because I arrived late and had to place orders for the two shirts I wanted because everything was basically sold out.
why white shirts?
“Both Cynthia and I are absolute lovers of white shirts, probably her more than me,” commented Yasmin Furmie who styles her white shirts in her own eclectic way. White shirts also have democratic appeal because of they are classic and versatile.
How to keep your white shirts clean?
“Cold water and not hanging in the sun” – Yasmin Furmie…
And if you are me… don’t touch or drink or eat anything during the day, because you’ll attract dirt when you wear a white shirt… because you’re Thithi.
About This Outfit
The cheekiness of the shirt allows for one to do something like pair it with a pencil skirt and sneakers for a more casual look. Then throw on a pair of heels for a more work friendly or formal look. My guiding principal in my life, when I shop, is that my garments must work for my life. I have never seen the value of having clothing that you can’t wear across the different parts of your life. In flats or heels. Day to night. Casual to formal. Clothes are pricey… Shop for all parts of our life.
