In the home stretch here. Because I was on vacation I was able to try on a lot more items than I normally do. And I stopped by my store and found a few more items I missed so those are coming up in the next few days.
~ Carrie Cami in Floral Lace, Dark Shadow, size 8 ~
Though I only own two, I am a fan of the Carrie Cami. The neckline is very flattering and when I wore the Carrie Cami in Blue Grotto I received a lot of compliments. Not only because of the stunning color but also because of the neckline. I wasn’t too much of a fan of the lace when I saw it online but in person it is very pretty.
The size 8 fit fine on me. I originally thought this was a dark navy but it’s really a dark gray. This or the black will be great closet staples to have for layering.
~ Perfect Shirt in Stewart Plaid, size 8 ~
This Perfect Shirt fit well in the size 8. I wouldn’t go to a Petite in this one even though the arms are a little long. I really wanted to get this so that I had back-up but I decided to just use what I have. I only wear my Tartan shirt 2-3 times a year so it should last several more years.
I’m surprised I haven’t seen this pattern at the Factory. I would have surely expected it to be offered last year. I think this looks good with Leopard and would be nice to see this layered under the Leopard Tippi Sweater.
~ Men’s Secret Wash Shirt in Royal Tartan, Small ~
I saw this in the Men’s section and liked the colors so I grabbed a Small to try on. Of course it’s a man’s shirt so it isn’t cut for a bust or hips.
The Small did fit fine to a little big under the arms and through the chest. Where the last button on the bottom hits is right at my hips and that is just fitting.
~ Edged Lace Cap-Sleeve Dress, Ivory, size 6 ~
In shift dresses I usually try to take my smaller of two size, 6 and 8. The size 6 fit well through the bust and skimmed over my hips. The material is crepe and is very nice in the Ivory, especially with the contrasting cap-sleeves. The length hits me just at the knee.
I think this would be nice for Christmas service, with a cardigan, or a holiday dinner.
When I saw this dress online I thought the lace cap-sleeves were silver or shimmery. I didn’t think it was the same dress when I saw it because it is actually embroidered in black. It’s still very nice though, just not what I expected.
I really wish the stores would at least steam nicer items like this dress. I have no idea what could have made that circle in the middle of the dress.
I can’t think of where I would use any of these right now so only the Carrie Cami was added to my wishlist.
Have you tried the Edged Lace Cap-Sleeve Dress?
