I’m still trying to find my way, and thoughts again, but I do have a few reviews of actual orders; things I really wanted. Let’s see if they find a place in my closet.
~ Cashmere Bodysuit with Velvet Bow, Medium ~
I loved last year’s Cashmere Bodysuit. I’m a fan of bodysuits in general. There’s no shirttails coming out and everything lays flat. Of course, there is the bathroom issue, so I try to where them when I am not drinking too much or have easy access to a bathroom. Anyway, last year’s bodysuit was a cap-sleeve and came in a featherweight cashmere. I have it in light gray and navy and they are so easy to wear and layer.
I went with a Medium in this, the same as my other two, and it fits really well. The cashmere is featherweight and very soft. I love the black as it can easily be worn with anything. It looks really good with my favorite Vince Union Slouch Jeans. I am living in these and the Distressed version as well.
Here’s my dilemma with this bodysuit. Look how big that velvet bow is! And you really need a helper to tie it correctly. It took a little while twisting my head to look in the mirror to get that bow to lay a little straighter and not pointing at my head. I thought about taking to my tailor and having them cut the ribbon, add some snaps to close it and then make a bow and attach it to one piece and have it line up in the middle. It would be straighter and an easier closure. There’s plenty of ribbon for it. Honestly though, even though I bought it at a really good price, it’s not worth it for me to alter the bow to keep it. We are having a very mild Fall and I think Winter will be the same. I may only have an opportunity to wear this once or twice.
~ Striped Turtleneck Sweater-Dress, Black Saddle, Petite Medium ~
I can see why everyone loves this dress. It’s very comfortable and fits really well. I chose the Petite sizing to shorten the hem a little but I know I could have gone with a Small as well. I’m also happy the turtleneck on this is not tight. I don’t like being choked by my clothes. I’m wearing this dress with my Born Felicia Boots that I bought during the Nordstrom sale over the Summer. You can get them on sale now too! I have tall black boots as well and once it gets colder, for that one day in January, I’ll add some black tights.
This outfit has been my uniform. Sometimes with the Velvet Bomber but mostly without, until the days are cooler. This has been one of the most versatile jackets I purchased and it’s a nice break from a standard jean jacket. I can’t wait to add some tartan shirts underneath it in December. And aren’t these Llama Sneakers just the cutest? Husband hates them so I know I have a winner with these. I just love them!
I know J.Crew has some new arrivals in store and more coming but I haven’t really been too impressed. I am so very tired of the boxy and would like more fitted looks. I did see one or two items that look promising so I hope to see them soon in-store. When I do, I’ll share those with you!
Have a Great Day!
