UGH! I should have known. I was still trying to put my outfit together for the wine auction and needed a clutch. I was so good the first time and only ordered the dress when the personal shopper at Anthro gave me free express shipping (see my finished look at the end). Well...when I ordered the clutch I threw in a couple of things this time.
Peaked Pointelle Sweater
On the Model:
Peaked Pointelle Sweater, in Pink Size M here
Something is not quite right.
I placed it next to a pink Tippi from J Crew (what I consider to be a true pink). It's kinda corally.
It just kind of hangs there on me like I was a hanger. The sweater is soft and the detail around the bottom is very pretty.
The back has a detail to "help" give it shape. The arms fit tts but something was just not right for me. Definitely the color, but also the fit. I felt like a linebacker in it. I have very square shoulders (not broad) and am a 36D. I so wanted to like this but...NO.
Lace Channel Sweatshirt
Well, this puppy has gotten good reviews and I knew going in it was a tee not a sweatshirt.
Lace Channel Sweatshirt, Grey Size L here
I wanted a slouchy feel so I sized up. It hangs to the right.
Peeking through lace at striped material underneath.
Still hanging to the right. Sigh. Just didn't fit. I did not like the neckline. Too wide or not wide enough. I don't know. Going back.
Velvet Tile Pouch:
Stock Photo, Sale $30, Pink here
Sorry, too much light. Unlike the one reviewer on line I think the color is dead on to the stock photo. However, where is my blue tassle? I talked to my personal shopper and she is sending me one so I'll have two colors to choose.
One zippered pocket.
My final look:
Lora Maxi Dress here
J Crew Coat, old (not really but couldn't find it)
J Crew earrings, old
Banana Republic Bracelets, old
Kate Spade Shoes, old (not really but couldn't find either)
