I picked up this mustard coloured cardigan that I LOVE but....(keep reading to see the 'but') :P
Long Cardigan: Gap XS (I can't seem to find it online on either the Canadian or the US sites!)
So the "BUT" is that it's 100% Merino Wool and normally anything that has even 5% wool in it drive me crazy with itchiness! For some reason this cardi is actually super soft!! I did notice that when I tried it on another time it was a bit warmer and I felt a bit itchy, but not so much so that I wanted to tear my skin off. So, even though it could potentially cause me some discomfort, I love the colour so much I'll just be sure to wear a shirt with sleeves under it. (the things we do for fashion!)
Next up is a package of stuff I got from Banana Republic.
Both were fails as there were no petite sizing offered online, but I got lucky with some Gap and Old Navy stuff in XS I thought I would give it a try.
Top: Banana Republic Silk Geo Print Top in XS (sold on on the Canadian site)
As you can see it's pretty much a tent on me!!!
Even a belt didn't help it out.
Too bad, because I really loved the details of this top:
The arm holes were WAY too big (you can see my bra, a BIG NO NO!)
I don't know what I was thinking but I also ordered a pair of non petite pants:
They are obviously way to big on me. But surprisingly the waist seemed to stay up ok:
Way too baggy all over.
I also have another package from BR that came in today - it originally got lost (or someone stole it). I have to say that the customer service was really great and helpful! Based on my BR items above I don't have high hopes for what I ordered, but I guess you never know!
