Trina Turk Zinna Dress (size M)
Excuse the bizarro 2nd pose - never sure what to do with my arms when posing from the side. The colors on this dress are adorable. LOVE them. The dress is SUPER thin but I actually think this is appropriate for where I would wear it - romping around on a beach vacation. Plus the thinness is not reflective of quality just a choice with the fabric. It is as thrown on and go as they come and yet I think the colors and material elevate it. Plus it was a steal.
Usually I size up in Corey Lynn Calter but this 4 was HUGE. If you look at the product picture it looks like this dress cinches in at the waist. Not so. It is a big bag. A big bag with beautiful colors and a lovely print but a big bag nonetheless.
Trina Turk Giuliana Blouse (sizes S and P)
This one is from Nordstrom. I have really been wanting a "secretary" blouse and I really like this one but it's pretty fancy for my use. I definitely liked the way the P fit better (2nd picture). There's a lot going on but I was drawn in by the lovely gold threads and the ethereal feather motif floating on the blouse. Not sure if this is the one but it would probably help if I put it on with a black pencil skirt or some high-waisted trousers.
Close-up of fabric. Why or why can't I let you go glittering gold anything?
BTW - Nordstrom is so lovely with their customer service. They located the blouses for me and had them sent right away with free shipping. Gotta love that.
