When the sale landed this past Wednesday I was anticipating (hoping really) that it wouldn’t affect me in any way because I’ve really been trying to stick to my wishlist and didn’t think any of the new Spring arrivals would be marked down so soon. Once the items were revealed I got excited over a couple of things, and then the free shipping promo was announced so it ignited a desire to place a couple of orders. The best surprise and success came about from popbacks. Let’s take a look at what was ordered:
Ribbed Heather Tights – honestly, I hadn’t spotted these until the day I placed the order to qualify for free shipping. Good thing I did because I love them in both the brown and black colors. Warm tights are always welcomed during these cold months and the M/L gave plenty of room for my 5’7 frame.
Surging Springs Skirt – this was another popback I was really excited about because ever since I tried it on back in October it had always been in the back of my mind. It’s a navy, classic pencil skirt, but the front drapes are just lovely and oh so flattering. I sized up to a 2 and the skirt stays in place, so there’s no tugging down or sliding up action. So pleased with this one and I think I want to pair it with a bright-color top!
Fancified Boatneck – again, another item that had been on the radar but I never adequately searched for it. The blue/white stripes are a classic favorite and the applique on the shoulders takes things up a notch from just a basic tee. My usual size fit great and it’s suprisingly soft! The lace does curl up a bit but I’ll try ironing, and if that fails, just might try my hand at sewing them down.
Field Skirt in Grey – while I already owned its golden sister, I thought that the grey could be a useful staple in my closet. Once it got here and I was able to try it on, the love just was not there. It poofed out and made me seem bigger than I am, which is never a look I aim for. I tried patting it down, shaking out its wrinkles, but to no avail, it was not meant to be. If anyone is interested in the skirt in a size 0, let me know!
Ahh, the joys of free shipping. With great power comes great responsibility!
