I was at the Loft Friday and picked up this blouse to help complete some savings cards for full discount. I was surprised by how much extra fabric there was all over since I did get the xxsp. (However, I think that may just be the style of the blouse and tucked in you'd never know).
The sleeves are meant to be rolled up on this blouse, but I thought you guys might like to see where they hit on my wrists when worn unrolled....(of course you can see from this last picture that the sleeve tabs are quite visible when the sleeves are fully extended.
What I like about this blouse: Super soft and amazingly comfortable. (I almost wish it came with matching silk pajama bottoms for the option of wearing to bed!) Lol The color is also quite versatile and goes with more than I expected in my closet.
What I don't like about this blouse: Completely see-thru. I took pictures with a nude bra and you can definitely see that it would need a cami underneath. It also stains like the dickens! I am quite a messy eater so it's necessary to keep a tide pen in my bag at all times. I have never had a tide pen leave a ring on fabric after use, but it did with this blouse. It will definitely have to be washed to get the spot cleaning rings out. Luckily the tag says wash in cold and tumble dry.
I also trotted into JCrew Friday. I had heard that this skirt ran small and was hoping to find it on sale in store in a size that worked for me. I tried on a 00 and size 2 (size 0 was not available). I actually bought the size 2 because it had extra fabric in the gathers in the back that I thought were really cute.
What I like about this skirt: A very comfortable pull-on style. Also quite flattering despite the extra material all around. I believe that I will be able to wear this skirt to the office or casually on the weekends, the material seems really versatile.
What I don't like about this skirt: The fabric is quite stiff, so it was necessary to smooth it down or adjust after standing.
I would love to get feedback on both items and please be brutally honest. If something needs to go back I definitely need to know ;)
