Signature Shirt in Python from The Shirt by Rochelle Behrens
There are two pieces of clothing that come to mind when I think of timeless American wardrobe staples- a great pair of jeans and a button down shirt. Ever since we women have been old enough to dress ourselves, these items, cut in different fabrics and fits, have undoubtedly been in out closets. While I'm not sure that any company has mastered the every-woman's perfect pair of jeans, there is a brand that has mastered the perfect button down shirt for women: The Shirt by Rochelle Behrens.
Rochelle's success began in her quest to help women find a button down shirt that didn't gape at the bust. To help REAL WOMEN live and work gap-free, Rochelle invented brilliant dual button technology. The Shirt buttons just like any other blouse but in between the usual exterior buttons are interior buttons that fasten together to keep you locked and loaded. This technology also allows you to vary how low you keep your neckline without forcing you into extremes- so you can appear buttoned up in the boardroom and then release a button or two for an apres-work drink with a new flame. (Or if you're me, you don't have to wear a tank every time you wear a shirt that buttons!)

Luckily, Rochelle's strategy and practicality comes in gorgeous options. The Shirt isn't just a plain white button down. Sleeveless versions, tunic options, patterns and prints are all offered in this savior of a shirt. It's even a favorite of another women's savior, Bobbi Brown.
Since discovering the genius of The Shirt, I've done a bit of daydreaming...
