Crocheted Lace Tank, size Small, Haven Blue – This tank is not my style but seems to be popular. It comes in three colors. The other two are Heather Fog and Sweet Vanilla. I do like it with it paired with the Light Citron Lace-Stripe Skirt. The Small was a good fit and I wouldn’t size to my normal Medium. Overall, a pass for me.
Lace-Sleeve Sweatshirt, size Medium – Blech! Seriously, I think this is hideous. The CFS says they took organza from a wedding & party dress and put it on a sweatshirt. Do you know how quickly this lace will tear or snag? It’s why it’s on a wedding dress…because it’s only worn once. Well, twice, since you take pictures in it too. I’ve seen this layered with a button-down underneath and it doesn’t look any better. Sorry to bash it because it will appeal to some people but this is another item I wouldn’t buy on deep discount with a promo.
Metallic Linen V-Neck Sweater, Small -Now I really liked this sweater, even before I put it on. It’s very boxy and sheet but I like how it looked over the Silk Crepe Maxidress. It will require a cami underneath but for a night out this will be cute to wear, maybe with the Factory Coral Tweed Shorts. I have a some vacations in the next few months where this outfit will do nicely. There is a panel at the sleeve that is more sheer than the rest of the sweater. I guess to give it some contrast? It’s supposed to be relaxed so size down.
Perfect Shirt in Crosshatch Linen, size 6, Lemon Pulp – I have several colors of the Perfect Shirt in Linen in various sizes as well (6, 8, 8P). This fits fine in a 6 but I probably should have taken my normal size 8. It’s not that bad except for my problem areas (shoulders/arms). The Lemon Pulp is pretty bright but love that this will punch up any white, navy or black bottom this Summer.
Merino Silk-Panel Sweater in Windowpane Floral, size Small – I like the Silk-Panel sweaters because they are easy to throw on over a pair of jeans and heels and go. I feel comfortable but still chic in them. This one is called Heather Dove and look like a very light Pewter. I’m on the fence about this one though. I’m not sure I like the color against my skin-tone. It will hang out in my closet until I make my final decision.
Linen Cubist Print Tee, Small – I ordered this as a ride-along and love the colors in it. It doesn’t look too bad with the Collection Pyramid Brocade Short either. The only thing is I thought I ordered a Medium so I’ll have to be careful when washing this to make sure it doesn’t shrink.
Sorry I’m a bit of hater for this last roll-out. I wasn’t really feeling any of the Lace/Crochet/Seersucker items that showed up. And I have to add Sweatshirts to my “Go Away Already” list. That list includes exposed zippers, dropped shoulder seams and 5+ inch heels. Certain trends just need to run it’s course and go away. You know, like acid washed jeans, neon everything, rubber bracelets and claw bangs.
Hope you enjoyed these reviews. I have some Factory reviews coming up next.
