Clothing Reviews - 2 Blouses and a Pair of Clodhoppers

I received four packages yesterday from UPS.  It was like Christmas!!!

First, from Nordstroms:


On Model





On Me





Closer shot


And even closer


This was such a cute top...just not on me.  First, I should know better than to put on vertical pleats with my girls.  They just never lay/lie right.  Second, it was very sheer.  Third, it gives the peplum effect which is a no no for me.  I did think this ran a bit large.  Negating the pleats, I would have sized down.


So damn cute.


Oh well, back she goes.



Next from Banana Republic...

Utility Blouse Navy Based Blue, size M

On Model


On Me


Okay, I can hear the snickering.  Navy is like my crack, give me a break.  Not the best picture.


The girls are happy.  No buttons therefore no gaping.


Shoulder detail.


Back view.  It is the pretty blue in the other pictures,  Not this shade.

This is 100% polyester.  With my discounts and coupons I got it for a song.  It will work perfectly in my wardrobe.



Finally the clodhoppers from J Crew...

Classic Macalister Boots in Suede Anchor Gray, size 7 (unisex sizes)

Classic MacAlister boots in suede


So Cute!



This is how I'll wear them.  Just Kidding.


Nice nubby sole to prevent slipping and sliding.


Good padding inside for comfort.


Next to my 'ol faithful Wallabies.  They look bigger.

Okay these are unisex shoes.  I take a 9 in shoes.  40 in Euro size.  They suggested women order two sizes down, i.e. I ordered a 7.  Perfect.  I found them to be very comfortable.  They also come shearling lined but that is not necessary where I live.  If I need those, my ass is inside.  My Wallabies somehow have become my foul weather shoes.  Therefore, they have seen better days.



I know I said I got four boxes but the last one will have to wait.  I thought the shoes, with the promo, were a great price and wanted to get them out before the promo ends.  I am sure the next Promo will be 30% off shoes.

And just cuz...

Guess who's son this is?

    I love the boots I quite fancy them myself, that's exactly what I need for every day, cosy and comfy and they're a lovely colour, oh hang on, non stop rain - must stop buying suede.

    1. Yep, that is Mr. Scott Eastwood. I could not get over how handsome he is. The Macalisters also come in leather - just saying.

    1. He's a cutie. I tried a similar blouse from Joie, in silk and very expensive, but found it too revealing. The BR blouse is exactly what I was looking for.

    1. Not sure what I'm gonna do with mine except casual with jeans, bootleg. We'll have to play with them once it gets a bit colder than 75.

  6. Hi BB! Love the bow top - but you are right - not a keeper; the other one does what it ought! I had on a peplum top today. horror story!

    Your clodhoppers are cute! We call them desert boots around here! I would wear them with tights and dresses - is that how you style them? dear daughter has the brown wedge version and they are remarkably comfortable (I have stolen them on occasion!)

    Oh Mr. Eastwood. Man - I miss Clint being younger...

    Loving those gray suede shoes. Your colour palette is excellent and sets you in the right direction, good choices these!

    1. I wish i could say i was done but I feel like I need just one or two patterns thrown in. They will have to be very subtle.
