Tory Burch: Drawstring Tunic Sweater, Embroidered Silk Peasant Top, Super Skinny Jean

I was hoping to have finished my posts so that you wouldn’t notice my brief absence but alas, time got away from me. We took The Boy back to college this week. He’s now in a town-home with some friends and starts classes on Monday. His room is small so we had to figure out how to fit a bed and desk in there with some small drawers for clothes. Yay! for Ikea coming through on everything we needed!

My cousin was in the country with her fiance’ and had a two-day layover in Texas to visit family. She was able to catch up with everyone and see all her aunts, uncles and cousins (new and old). The Boy was also able to see his grand-mother and great-grandmother before heading back to school.

~ Drawstring Tunic Sweater, Small ~

I loved the Boho feel I got when I put on this sweater tunic. The fringe at the arms along with the pattern were so distinctive. The tunic is oversized so the Small fit very well. I am consistently an 8/Medium in Tory Burch so definitely size down one.
I didn’t adjust the drawstring any but should have raised that part up a little to give the top portion some drape. The sweater is a little on the thick side but not too much. It will do well in late October/November as opposed to September.

My only issue with this tunic sweater is the fringe. I think after a year it might be a little dated causing me not to wear it. I don’t think to would do any good to try and remove them as it does help make this very Boho. I’m on the fence about it so I’ve added it to my Wishlist. If it makes it to sale I will have a hard time resisting this purchase.

~ Embroidered Silk Peasant Top, size 8 ~

The silk is pretty sheer on this peasant top. I love the embellishment in the front as well as the detailed embroidery down the sleeves. Unfortunately, the size 8 fit a bit snug in the arms and shoulders. I would need to size to a 10 in this top. The would make the sleeves a little longer than they already are and I might lose the shape I’m seeing in these pics as well.

I felt the tassel tie at the neckline was a little too long and bothersome. I wonder if the tassels could have had that short length but been attached at the neckline with the hook-and-eye closure. Of course, you can always leave it untied and let the tassels hang down.

You can see here the tightness in the arms as well as the pulling at the chest.

But that embroidered detail is so pretty. There’s a tee as well as a tunic with similar embellishment that I will have to consider instead of this Peasant Top
~ Super Skinny Jean, size 29 ~
Lastly, these are the jeans I’ve been wearing in these last two posts. I was surprised at how well these fit in the size 29. I don’t need them and I would probably get a size 30 for a little room if I did. I love my Cropped Skinny Jean and have two pair of them. These have a little fading at the front and they are bunching at my knees so they would need a hem.

I don’t normally think of Tory Burch for denim as there are better brands out there. I like my Cropped Skinny Jeans because they are a dark rinse with no distressing or fading anywhere. Otherwise, I usually go with Pilcro or J Crew for my denim needs.

I’m gathering my Tory Burch wishlist for Fall and the Drawstring Tunic Sweater is definitely on the list.

What do you think of these Tory items?

    Everything you tried on looked great. I did not think the peasant blouse looked tight at all I really liked it!
