It's a bit hard to see, but it's a wrap neckline with an empire waist. The print is a bit casual, but for that price I can't complain :)
Next is this blazer in XXSP, which I thought looked pretty good in front:
But the side view was boxy and frumpy... although I think it has potential for someone who's a size up from me. I decided to pass since I didn't really need it or want it enough to get alterations.
Last but not least, I found an item that's been on my "want" list for many years... a wool coat!
This was on sale for $99, and initially the smallest I could find was an XSP (which is pictured above). After hemming and hawing, and knowing it was too big on me but still not wanting to let it go, I finally managed to walk away. But on my way out, I decided to check the tag of the coat on the display mannequin... lo and behold, an XXSP!! Needless to say, I quickly took it off the mannequin, tried it on in front of the store mirror (therefore no pics), and skipped all the way to the check out counter! :)
Now I've heard that Ann Taylor Factory quality is subpar compared to their regular merchandise, so I will be holding on to my receipt just in case I find something better. In fact, I have another wool coat coming in the mail, so will take pics of the XXSP size to show both of them later. In the mean time, I'm also eyeing this other Ann Taylor wool coat ($398), available in XXSP in camel, gray, and black:
If only there were another 40% off coupon...!
