I do not really care for the loops on the neckline.


I agree.  Thinks like that at a neckline make me itch me for some reason.  It is a pretty top other than that.

The red top is pretty.  I didn't care for the black one (i think it was black). All i remember was two thin straps and skin.

 


@Snoopp  That's the one I was talking about as inappropriate.

Thank you for the suggestions.  If the white top had been located, it is unlikely that it would have been in my budget.  It is a great top.  I probably would have ruined the sleeves after one day anyway.

Paws and enjoy life.

Re: Megyn Kelly's top at the RNC

Here's a commentary about Megyn's black spaghetti strap dress that closely mirrors what I think also.   Contrary to what some posters posted here, I wasn't offended by it, merely thought it was inappropriate attire for reporting at a convention.   I thought this commentary was quite good:

 

No, Megyn Kelly Should Not Have Worn That Dress
We can't control some things about our appearance, but we can control our wardrobes.

 

Megyn Kelly reported on the Republican National Convention while wearing a spaghetti-strap dress. The internet went crazy: people saying she was inappropriately dressed and people saying we should all shut up about her dress because "you go, girl," or whatever.

Here's the deal: Society has norms, and when you go against those norms you're going to get backlash.

There's a reason employees at Target wear khaki pants and red shirts, and the cashier at Burger King wears a uniform, and there's a reason you put on a suit when you go for a job interview. Your clothing is a symbol that indicates who you are.

You don't see emo teens wearing pink party dresses, and you don't see biker gangs wearing tuxedos. Everyone chooses their clothing (or in the case of a uniform, the boss chooses the clothing) because it represents who they are and what they do. 

There is nothing universal about what a particular outfit means. Brides in the United States wear white, while brides in China wear red. It's all cultural. And right now, the culture is that newscasters don't wear spaghetti straps. Megyn Kelly has worn spaghetti straps plenty of other times without the internet going crazy. The difference is she wore them in a different setting.
