First, my OOTD for the office holiday party:
I don't know that adding red and curling your hair automatically makes you festive, but it's worth a shot!
Red Cashmere Cardi: Macy's (old)
Top: The Limited Gray Blouse with Crochet Detail, XS (from summer)
Pants: The Limited Drew Fit Trousers
Necklace: DIY Pearl Dangle
And now the fitting room reviews:
I thought this looked adorable on the hanger! After all, how can you go wrong with military style AND ruffles? It mostly fit well but there was something about it that I didn't love.
The body portion fit well but the sleeves were weirdly tight.
I really liked the bow and rhinestone detail (not just the sewn-on "jewels", but ones that have actually been placed into settings) but the extra room in the middle seemed to make me look heavier which is never a good thing.
I liked this a lot from the front (though I'm a little unsure how I feel about the slight inverted V of the hem) in the photo, but there was again some extra room in the torso:
Verdict: Unsure, maybe if it goes on super sale
So all in all, I actually did pretty well. I bought the 2 sweaters here and didn't even peruse the sale rack. However, now that everything is extra 40% off, I can feel that familiar tug of temptation ;)
