    A few years ago, I became enchanted by feathers. One of my best friends Abie harbored an obsession with plumage, thanks to a bona fide New Mexico upbringing spent raising chickens and pigeons in the picturesque landscape of Albuquerque. Abie passed on his love of speckled guinea and prismatic peacock feathers to me via handmade feather jewelry and hair clips. Today, Abie lives in the urban jungle known as New York City, so to keep his spirit and creations close to my heart and always in my memory, I keep each of his feather notions preciously sealed in plastic bags and stored in my overflowing jewelry box. With this slightly sheer, oversized tank by indie favorite Jack by BB Dakota, I am able to channel Abie's love of feathers not only through my accessories, but also through my ensemble! Colorful watercolor renditions of feathers in all shapes and sizes come together to enliven this white scoop neck top with natural beauty. The sleek racerback and asymmetrical hem ensure a chic silhouette, perfect for pairing with black skinny jeans, towering suede platforms, and a few pitch-perfect silver accessories. Like each of Abie's feather ornaments, this delicate tank will live in my wardrobe as a versatile, compliment-gathering item and sentimental favorite. -Annie, Fashion Writer
