This dress really did not work for me, which is a shame, because the polka dots are adorable. It has a similar shape to the Lace Blouson dress which I blogged about before but it fit quite differently. The size 2 almost felt too big but the elastic waist fell at the oddest part of my body. Not empire, but not at the waist either. It kept on riding up and if I pulled it down it was too low cut on the bodice.
Colorblock-stripe long-sleeve tee (XXS) and Cafe Trouser (size 2) in Desert (on sale for $49.99 in store)
Love the striped tee - nice to see stripes that are not nautical. Really like the Cafe trouser as well but I feel like I am in between sizes. I have learned to buy my pants quite tight since they are inevitably stretched out by the end of the day but the size 0's felt a bit too tight. Really flattering pants though.
Talia Top in Seine Stripe (size 2)
I really love this top. It has an ease about it that the regular Talia doesn't have. The beige stripe is darker than it appears on the website. The sleeves are not quite a bell but also loose. Love it. Really wish it came in more colors. Also think they should not call it a Talia since it is a different shape.
The color is vibrant and lovely but the overall feel is way too lumberjack. The fabric is thick and nubby like an old LLBean flannel shirt and it made me feel a bit too masculine. In a lighter fabric, I would like it.
Crewlet reviews coming next!!!! And a review of another new tartan shirt.
