First the sale items:
First the Horkelia Shift (I can't remember if it was a size 2 or 4). The lace is beautiful and I am really enjoying this trend right now. Unfortunately it was a bit shapeless on me. I do think sizing down would help tremendously. I was a bit worried that I would be constantly snagging the lace on things as this one already had a few pulls.
This is the Cuernavaca Maxi (size 2). I love maxi dresses but unfortunately they do not love me. This only emphasized my (ahem) ample bosom and then had little waist definition. I added the belt which helped but the "waist" line is falls at an awkward place - not quite your waist, not quite empire.
This is the Arboreal Blouse. The print is absolutely darling but I'm not entirely sure how I feel about the collar. It is marked down to $19.99 making it a steal but it was a bit snug in my usual size 2 so I left it behind. Sadly...
On to Fall Items! I'll have a few more to post over the weekend too....
This is the Liquid Acres Skirt in a size 2. It is everything a pencil skirt should be: perfect fit, sturdy material, interesting print that could go with a myriad of options. This skirt fits very similarly to J Crew pencil skirts (the material feels similar to the Watercolor Garden pencil skirt) but sits slightly higher on the waist - which I think is quite flattering. Love the seams down the front. Gorgeous.
Dots Within Blouse (size 2). I am loving the whole "secretary chic" thing that is going on right now. I think this blouse does it well. Love the green color, love the tie neck that can be left slightly undone, love the tight wrists with many buttons to give it a slight puff at the end of the sleeve.
Tokonoma Tee in size 2. The colors are delicious although I think the fit is slightly big. I actually just ordered myself a size 0 to see if this would improve things. I don't mind the slight boxiness as the material drapes nicely. This is definitely sale-wishlisted.
I do have more reviews but that is all I have energy for.
Has anyone picked up something gorgeous from the current sale or fall offerings?
