Hi readers! Sorry I didn't put up a post yesterday. I had an outfit post all ready to go and when I went to post it, something went wrong with the internet and the computer screen went white. I assumed most of my post had been saved, but the whole post was deleted! I was too frustrated to write it again, but I do have a few reviews for you today :)
1. Graces Tank-$48
For those of you looking to buy something in that true lavender color (me!), I think this is it. You can kind of compare the color to the grey cardigan in the background. This is a size small, which fit me perfectly, so I'd say it's TTS. The tank is very comfortable and lightweight, but the one negative is that it is pretty sheer. I had a black bra on underneath, which didn't help, but I definitely couldn't wear this to work by itself (I might try the moss color to see how sheer it is). However, I do think it would be a great piece to layer under jackets/cardigans. I almost walked out with this one because the price is so nice, but I held back because of the sheerness factor. It's still high up on my wishlist and will probably make it's way into my closet before it hits sale.
2. Brass Band Tank-$48
I really wanted to like this tee when I went into the fitting room, but it just didn't wow me once I had it on. I tried on the small, which fit at the stomach, but was a tad big at the chest. I also don't like how the tank is a mixture of stripes and the solid blue. I liked the look online, but once I had it on something just looked off about it to me (It looked like a swimming suit to me). I did like the button details on the straps and the colors (baby blue and a mossy green), but that's about it. I feel like this is something I could find for $19.99 at places like Target, so I won't be buying it full price and probably won't give it a second chance when it goes on sale.
3. Keeping Tabs Tee-$68
Love this tee! If it had been priced at $48 it definitely would have come home with me. It's a beautiful forest green color with cute little typewriters all over it. It has a pocket on the front and the sleeves are buttoned. It was very soft and comfy on, but another one that was a little on the sheer side. It wasn't as sheer as the Graces Tank though and I think it will be fine with a dark colored bra. My true size small fit perfectly, but this might not be for you if you don't like your tees to be form fitting. I think this would look great paired with a solid colored skirt for work and could then easily be worn with jeans on the weekend. This is another top that's at the top of my wishlist :)
4. Scribbled Bouquet Cardigan-$98
-Can be worn open or buttoned
-Fit was TTS if not a little big (I tried on the medium)
-The design looked a little cheap
-The back of the cardigan (at the bottom) looks different than the front of the cardigan. It bunches together, which wasn't horrible, I just didn't like the look of it.
-The buttons down the front didn't lay right. They looked like they were pulling/gaping (look at the last two buttons), but there was definitely room to spare.
Verdict: Will reconsider when it goes on sale.
Did any of you pick anything up at the sale today? I bought the Buds and Bunches Tee in blue, the Snowmelt Cardigan in purple, another Climbing Cowlneck, and the Daring Dart Blouse (both colors, but one will go back). I kinda like having these little sales every week instead of the bigger sales every two weeks....I hope they keep it up!
Bye for now!
