Anyway - finally got the energy to try on my sale items... here they are in no particular order :)
Silk Elodie Blouse (TXS) in Grafitti Green
Taking a cue from A Bigger Closet, I decided to try this blouse in a Tall XS. Although I am by no means tall, I have freakishly long arms compared to my torso so I thought it might work. Untucked, the shirt definitely looks too long. Tucked it better but the arms are too long and the tight cuffs make them blouse out in a sort of pirate sleeve way. Not loving it. Boo. Not sure I would love it in the right size anyway. When I originally tried it on here I was having doubts.
Vintage Cotton Rugby-Stripe Henley (XS) in Chalk
The material on this is a little funky but I like it. the cream stripes are definitely a bit see through which is probably why this color still lingers in the sale section. The fit is quite flattering - fitted but not skin tight. it was slightly pulling at the buttons but I would probably unbutton a few anyway. Like it but perhaps I need to face my newfound stripe addiction head on and return it.
Lady Lace Popover (XS) in Navy
This truly is a lovely little sweater - hugs in just the right places, nice open neckline, perfect length. Still a bit pricey for me with the 30% off so I'm not sure. The navy does not show off the lace as well as the other colors but it is still quite lovely.
Factory Black Watch Tartan Wool Pant (size 2)
This combo is straight from Shopping with M who did it here . Such a great combo. Holiday done right I say! My left hip looks really bit here... more on that later...
Most J Crew pants give me total waist gap - as you can see from the above picture the waist band lays perfectly flat. Yahoo!
So I really love these pants. I do not love wool but these do not bother me at all - soft, lined, yay. My one complaint is that they make my hips look a little big and that is because there is some major lumpiness where the pockets are. I am trying to show it in the close-ups but you can't really tell. I think it is called "cheap pocket construction syndrome" and I definitely think it makes me look slightly hippy. I might get over it though because these pants are wonderful.
That's it for now. back to meds and bed :) or chasing a 2 year old...
