I was recently lured into my local Urban Outfitters store by an "extra 50% off sale items" sign out front. And while I didn't find any worthwhile sale items to blog about, I did try on a few other things, including a seriously small skirt... the BDG Zipper Miniskirt in XS ($38):
I couldn't believe how small this was! I'd say the XS is probably similar to a size 10 kids skirt unless you like your skirts really really skin-tight. I also grabbed a size S in another color to try because even that looked tiny as well:
To be honest I'm not sure which size fits me better! They both feel quite short though (or maybe I'm just not used to having skirts hit me at that length). The material is a stretchy knit, and almost reminds me of the recent LOFT scuba material except not quite as thick. They only had those two colors in store, but a quick search online showed that it's available in seven different colors. I hate paying retail so I passed, but maybe if it goes on sale :)
Next was the military-esque Collection Officer Coat in XS ($79), which looked like it ran small as well:
Sorry about the grainy pics, my iPhone picture quality is usually better, I think their mirror was dirty or something. The coat looks pretty good in front, but side view was still a bit boxy and the sleeves were a little roomy. I also wasn't sure about the rather drabbish green color, but it also comes in a blackish grey online:
And finally, since I can't seem to find the H&M faux fur collar that I saw on ExtraPetite (or any other H&M items for that matter), I tried on the UO version - the Pins and Needles Faux Fur Collar ($28):
The color is a darker brown and it seems a bit shorter, but otherwise it's pretty much the same idea. I couldn't make myself pay almost twice the price though since the H&M version is only $15, so again I passed.
I couldn't find any juicy UO coupon codes, except for GIFTED which gives 10% off full-price items, and wasn't tempted enough to make an order. Will be biding my time and browsing online in the meantime, waiting for a good sale and/or coupon codes! :)
