Chic Boatneck in Crocus Melange (size 4) Clearance Item for $45.00
I really like this color - I don't think it's a particularly "in" color this fall with all the saturated greens and oranges we keep on seeing but I like it anyway. It suits my pale skin and light hair. Let me preface this review by saying I am extremely shortwaisted. So, the fact that this sweater is super short on me is frightening. It's super cute and comfy but the length is a dealbreaker. I would be afraid to raise my arms!
Bella Jumper in Rosy (size 4)
This sweater is cute (and thank goodness longer) but the color looked outdated to me. The sleeves are a lantern style which also feels a little dated. I did like the band of material at the bottom - gave the sweater a nice shape and much needed length. Cute but nothing to get excited about for me. Maybe more intriguing in the Chili color?
Colourblock Cuff Top in Leaf (size 4)
I've been drooling over this top since it was released. Love rainbow cuffs, love green, love silk. The drape of the top is lovely. It skims the body beautifully and isn't at all boxy. I thought the size 4 might be tight in the shoulders as I vacillate between a 4 and a 6 in Boden but it was quite comfortable. Here is my one problem with this blouse - the bottom of the cuffs are elastic! It just really cheapens the look of it. Buttons would elevate the look of the top and make the cuffs/sleeves lay more nicely.
Breton Tunic (size 4) in Navy and Scarlet Stripe
Whoomp there it is! I couldn't resist the 80's reference. This size looks a bit 80's club girl and yes there is a lot of information about my ladyhood in it. I'm not sure if sizing up would look great and more tunic-y or just frumpy. Surely this size is a bit snug. Also afraid it would stretch out and I would regret not keeping the smaller size (ala stripy tunic from this summer. Was snug, more once, stretch out a lot). However, I love this color combo, the material is cozy and warm and the neckline is lovely and flattering. Plus the empire waist falls just right and is quite slimming. Very tempting.
I have a few more for tomorrow. Any thoughts? Worth a size up on the Breton Tunic? Any else find any goodies with the midseason sale?
