Trace the Stars Blouse (size 2 and 0)
I had such high hopes for this blouse. The constellation print is to die for. Love it love it love it. The fabric is also a very nice silk. It's hard to tell in the pictures but the blouse does this weird poufing thing right above the waist. It is really unflattering. I would almost consider sizing up to a 4 to see if I could get it to work but the arms are a little poufy for me as well. Insert major sad face here. Boo.
Tokonoma Tee (size 0) $49.95 (sale)
I've been waiting for this to go on sale forever. Now that I have it, I think I may actually like my Pointilist Pond Blouse better! The colors are so lovely on this one and I like the relaxed fit but it is a REALLY simple blouse. Just two panels of silk pieced together. I'm on the fence now.
Hallowell Cowlneck (size S) $148.00
This was the one item I saw in the catalogue that I thought I had to have. I love cownecks and I love big cozy sweaters. It comes in other colors but I you can't see the detail as much on them. The cowlneck is HUGE. So big, in fact, I don't really know what to do with it. In the middle picture you can see that it is rather wide in front. I wish the hem in front were as long as the back. I do still kind of love it but would not pay full price.
Bilberry Dress (XS) $69.95
Okay, I know, where the heck do you wear a crocheted dress? I surely don't know but I want to find a place. I have no reason to own this dress but again I sort of love it. It is so absolutely different from anything else in my wardrobe. I almost think you could winterize it with tights and a long tee underneath and boots. The self belt is even cute but I think I could use a real belt to add a bit more waist definition.
Gradated Diamonds Skirt (XS) $39.95
In real life I thought I like the skirt but seeing this pictures - meh. Many reviewers commented about the fabric not lining up correctly in the back and they are right! I am trying to show that in the 2nd pic. It IS a silk skirt for $40 which is nice and the length is perfect for 5'4'' me. I think I'll pass but it is a nice option for those looking to get a maxi skirt. Lays well despite the elastic waist.
Liquid Acres Skirt (size 2) $59.95
This skirt fits beautifully - as good if not better than La Crew's pencil skirts. It is a heavy weight fabric and the colors could go with a lot. My usual size 2 has to be worn higher on the waist so I would like to try on a size 4. Might be too big in the hips then though. The length is perfect for me. I don't like skirts below my knee since I'm on the short side.
