Armani Exchange is one of those rare stores I've found that (sometimes) carry a size XS small enough to fit my XXS self :) Their clothes are usually a little too trendy for me though, but once in a while there are some good finds. There were only a few things that caught my eye (and still available in my size) this time.
First is the Strapless Bubble Dress in p0:
The fit is actually pretty good considering it's a strapless, and I like that it has pockets. The color, however, wasn't really what I expected. I wanted more like a rich true red, but this was more of a hot-pink kind of red. I'm not sure what I'd wear this to... so it's probably a return.
Next is the Lightweight Printed Trench in XS:
I have to admit that I almost didn't even try this one on, because the printed fabric just kind of threw me. I know it's in the name! But for some reason I thought it was a slubby fabric instead of an actual print. Here's a close up of the pattern:
I've been wanting a light trench since the almost-but-not-good-enough Ann Taylor LOFT trench that I've reluctantly decided to return. The fit of this one was a pleasant surprise! Even from the side it was fitted... which was a big contrast to the LOFT coat. And because of the pleated design it actually gave me a butt which is virtually unheard of! The sleeves are too long though, but that seems like an easy fix. If only it was in a different fabric... I would keep it in a heart beat. I'm still thinking about keeping it anyway. I got it ~$63 after tax, so it's not a huge investment... but it's $63 I could put toward the perfect trench...
I also tried the Mesh Moto Jacket and the Printed Cardigan in XS:
But they definitely did not work, and I was tired of taking pictures so I didn't even bother. I do like that A|X has a generous return policy and pays for return shipping as well, so off they go!
