Beltane to Memorial Day Countdown: Jonathan Martin Hermes-Print Tank

As it appears we are on a "classy tank top" trajectory, for my 14th tank, I present my Jonathan Martin Fake Hermes Patterned Button-up Tank. While I know little of Jonathan Martin (except for the fact that I appreciate the unicorn on his labels and that he makes cute tanks), I do know that nothing says "rich bitch" more than a pile of ropes incorporated into a pattern (really, can someone explain this to me? Are they supposed to represent the restrictive bonds of upper class society? Or what?).

I found this piece last spring, when I was on the lookout for a piece of clothing, preferably a shirt, that had a print such as this (what can I say? I wanted to feel rich, even on my T.A. salary). Imagine my excitement when I stumbled across this number—not only is it a small, yet flowy tank (versus the majority of tops sporting such prints which tend to be boxy in the most unflattering way*), but it buttons up! I absolutely love tanks that incorporate buttons, which you will witness throughout the course of this countdown. After all, what is more classy than buttons?**

*Actually, as I am writing this, I suddenly have an urge to add one such top to my Wishlist—a long sleeved button-up number that can be tucked in for extra classiness.
**Versus zippers, the trash of the fastening world.
