Knowing I really shouldn’t have, I bought a couple of Final Sale items last week. Here are the reviews, just in case you were contemplating these too.
I have had both the Navy and White on my wishlist since these came out. The reviews state these shorts run large and I somewhat agree. The waist fit well and I could have sized down to a 6 but that would be after having slimmed my tummy a little. The hips and thighs are very big and baggy but I think they are made that way. They aren’t supposed to be slimming. I think the size 8 was the right call for me and that is my consistent shorts size.
These white is very white and they are also lined, in polyester. I don’t understand why linen isn’t always lined in Cotton. Of course it’s cheaper but it should be a designer rule.
After some ironing, they will look nice with a slimmer top, since they are baggy through the thighs. Overall, I am glad I bought these and would love to get the Navy on a pop-back.
The first thing you’ll notice is that the featherweight cashmere is pretty sheer. I’m consistently in a nude bra and you can see it showing through. Of course, this is a sweater so it will be worn in Winter, which means layering will deal with the sheerness.
The description states a relaxed fit and I sized down to a Small. I won’t be layering anything but a thin tee under this so the sizing is perfect. These do have the drop-shoulder seam, which I’m normally against but they didn’t bother me in these. (I guess because they were both Final Sale.)
I love both of these colors and am contemplating buying either the Navy or Brilliant Blue.
This was not Final Sale but I wanted to try it while it was on promo, with the discount. I knew the Navy would work better in my closet than the Caribbean Sand (tan) colorway. This is cropped, as you can see it hits the top of my waistband on the Bermuda Shorts in Italian Linen. The sizing is perfect in my normal Medium. You can see it is just slightly sheer but I’ll be layering this over the Silk Sleeveless Blouse in Solid-Vintage Cabernet
and Heart Dot
The back is just a tiny bit longer than the front, but not much. This is still pending as a keeper as I’m sure this “cropped top” trend will soon disappear.
So there you have it. I’m buying Final Sale so you don’t have to. Have you tried any of these Final Sale items?
