Is it fair to call this “November Reviews” when I took these pictures in October? Hmmm. Well, I have never been one for technicalities. When I went to the two holiday workshops in the stores last month, I figured I might as well try on a few things while I was there. You know, if I must. Cause I had to, of course. Not because there were so many lovelies calling my name. Of course not.
I will warn you. You know how I’m lazy? Well, in one of the reviews, I could not be bothered to put on pants. That would have involved taking off my boots. And, even though I brought pants into the dressing room just for this reason, I did not use them. Life is more exciting this way. And lazy is what lazy does. Or rather does not do. So, you’ve been warned.
Here we have a pretty top. It is called the Brocade Peplum Top. Do you know I brought some pants into the dressing room to try on with this, as well? But I didn’t. I just used what I wore that day.
I don’t know about this top. I love the parakeets used in the pattern of this top. But I am not a fan of the shiny fabric. The peplum is cute. I think it is flattering. This shirt is not for me, but it would be cute for the holidays for someone who likes shimmer. I am wearing a size 6 here. It fits well.
This was all I tried on that day. I was hungry.
Hence the parakeets.
They had this wrap on the last chance rack. I thought it was lovely. I cannot find it online.
If you know the name of it, please let me know.. Updated: Thank you Amles! Here is the link to the wrap. But I have no idea how to style this. I feel much older than I am in this. The pattern is beautiful, though.
Okay. Here we have Jenni wearing the Humboldt Tunic. It is a lovely shirt meant to be paired over leggings or jeans. Or, you know, the bright neon pink tights you had hiding under your dress because you thought no one would see them and you couldn’t find any socks. And if someone did catch a glimpse of them, well, maybe they would think you were edgy. Yea. Cause that is the word always used to describe you, “edgy.”
But you wore them and now you are too lazy to put pants on. So, there you stand in all your glory. Nice.
I really like this top. To be fair, I thought it was a dress before I put it on. Once it was on, I just did not have the energy to rework it as a top. I am on a purchasing-sale-only kick right now, but if it is under $75 and it is a whole outfit, I might consider it. Unfortunately, this top fits neither of these categories at this time. But I will definitely reconsider it on sale. I am wearing a small here.
Also, in the red color on the site, the model is wearing the most amazing pair of blush colored pants. Does anyone know what pants those are?
Um, ’cause maybe I need some.
Update: Thank you, Angela! Here is the link for the velvet leggings I crave.
Please imagine I am not wearing bright pink tights with this dress? That question mark was a typo. But it fits this scenario. Try to imagine I am not wearing bright pink tights. Question mark. As in, how is that possible?
I know it’s hard.
This is a size small in the dress. It is called Ribboned Peasant Dress. It is on sale right now. Oh man, busty gals are going to love this dress. I have this tied as tightly as I could. I would have needed an XS in this and it still would not have fit me right. This is going to be phenomenal on the right body type. I cannot wait to see how some of the ladies are going to rock this. I am so jealous. This is a pass for me due to sizing issues.
I LOVED this dress online. It is called Galina Dress. I saved it in my wishlist along with some reddish boots and I would just stare at the combination side by side. Sigh.
Oh, you know you do it, too. ; )
But I am not in love with this dress on me. This is a size small, which I believe is the right size. The color is gorgeous. This seemed to be the hot item of the day, because I saw many ladies taking this dress into the dressing room with them.
I do not know what it is that doesn’t work for me. What do you think?
I removed this dress from my wishlist. The boots were heartbroken.
If you can’t tell, I love me some bright fun tights. I like a neutral dress I can play with to wear all of my happy colors throughout the winter. Because of my weight loss, I was down to one easy long sleeved neutral dress for the winter that worked in that category. I needed another one.
This fit the bill. In all ways, really. Including the actual bill.
It is a lounge dress. This is the Chiara Chemise. I do not know what exactly that means. “Lounge.” I guess I am supposed to lounge around the house in this.
But, we all ready know I will post pictures of myself sans pants on the internet, so it stands to reason that I would of course wear this out of the house. Everywhere. Fully standing. As in, not lounging.
Rebel. Hey, maybe I am edgy? Question mark not a typo here.
This dress is grey thermal. It is thin. It has cute little buttons on the shoulders. It was $68.
Oh man, you guys are not going to be happy with me. The pictures above are of me in the small.
But I was not comfortable in it. How could I lounge in something not comfortable?
I like to twist the word “lounge” to fit into whatever manipulation I am pulling at the time. It’s a fun little trick.
I tried on the medium, and I just liked it better. So, that is what I purchased.
I know! But it is so comfy.
I have all ready worn this three times with three different colored tights. And I am thrilled with this cute little number.
Let the “lounging” commence!
Have you tried on anything you like recently? And do you wear your “lounge” clothes out of the house (gasp!)?
