First is the Nylon Cami in XXS ($12):
I know it's non-petite item! But it was on sale so I figured why not... and it turned out not too bad!
It's hard for me to find a cami that's not too tight and not too loose. Also, most adult camis and tanks are cut too low for me. And while girl's sizes fit, they're usually cut in a boxy and unflattering shape which isn't what I want either. This one fits well overall except for the length, which is a little on the long side but not ridiculously so. It comes with adjustable straps and the material is smooth to the touch and is nice enough that it's probably work-appropriate under blazers/cardigans. Here's another view of it alone and layered under the LOFT cardigan:
I also tried it in Pewter which is a nice silver color that I wore in my last post. The lighter color makes it not as figure-friendly though and shows lumps and bumps easily, so for the sake of my vanity you'll only get to see it underneath a cardigan as before:
Next is the Rolled Hem Cardigan in XXSP ($32):
I got it in "Peach Nectar", which is such a feminine color:
The material is very soft to the touch and feels great, but the fit is kind of so-so. I'm also not sure how I feel about the sleeve length, which is kind of neither here nor there. Debating whether or not to keep this one.
And lastly, I've been looking more into accessories lately to add to my 'collection', which is really pretty sad in number. Since this pretty Mayflower Luxe Scarf was on sale, I figured I'd try it:
Here's a close-up of the pattern:
And here's how it looks on:
The color is a little darker than I thought it would be, but is still pretty I guess. And I guess I'm just not used to paying lots of money on accessories, because even on sale at $30, I think it's still more expensive than I want to spend on a scarf.
Some other things I got that didn't work out were:
- Silk Dash Print Dress in 00P - Slightly too big and too expensive to keep at $95.
(extra fabric held in the back)
- Perfect Kitten Peeptoe Slingback in Powder, size 5.5 - worn in above picture. Material is super soft and feels luxurious, and on sale for $67. Unfortunately the color is unflattering on my skin tone, also it's slightly too loose in size 5.5 and makes my feet look wide for some reason.
- Cotton Silk Blouse in XXSP - Too hot pink for me, and also loose and baggy. Not a fan.
All the items I mentioned were on sale, which are now an extra 25% off with the code SALE25. LOFT is also having a "buy one get one 50% off" promotion on tops and sweaters, which is stackable with the code LDMAUG2010B for an additional 20% off a $100 purchase. Free shipping ends tomorrow (7/30) on both sites though, so hurry if you're thinking about getting something!
