Old Navy Denim Jacket, XS, $9 in store (orig. $35), buy here
I've never really been a denim jacket kind of girl (always felt like it looked off on me and so effortlessly cool on everyone else) but for $9, I decided to give this one a try. It's a good thing I'm planning to wear it opened because there's no way I can get it to button across my chest.
Verdict: Buy, looks cute open and $9 to experiment with the look isn't a bad deal
Old Navy Ruffled Button-Front Drawstring Cami, XS, $9 in store (orig. $25), buy here
I was originally drawn to this online but never ordered it for fear of it being low-cut. It actually isn't bad at all and I love the yellow + dots. I tried pulling the drawstrings taut but it looked silly on me. I like the relaxed look better.
Verdict: Buy, good fit / print / color / price
Old Navy Drawstring Raglan-Sleeve Jersey Top, XS, buy here
Old Navy Rope Belt, XS / S, $7 in store (orig. $), do not see online
I wanted to love this shirt. I have plenty of navy / white / cream / gray stripe combinations but wanted to add a red into the mix. The top is blouse-y with elasticized cuffs and hem. The effect made me look a little balloon-like.
Verdict: No, not at all flattering
Thankfully, the belt worked out. The knot is such a pretty detail and you already know I'm a huge sucker for all things nautical.
Verdict: Buy, a perfect addition to my nautical collection
And then at Ann Taylor:
Ann Taylor Romantic Lace Top, Sz 0, $60, buy here
Lace and neon yellow? So pretty!! It fit pretty well and I was glad that the lace wasn't the itchy type.
Verdict: No. Practically speaking, the price is too high for something that won't become a wardrobe staple. I would consider on further sale though.
Ann Taylor Lace Detailed Colorblock Shell, Sz 0, buy here
I really loved the look of this shell with the contrasting neck band and lace sides but it's not a top I can wear by itself in the office. I'd have to layer it with a blazer or cardigan and then the beautiful lace details would be completely hidden.
Verdict: Sadly no, the best part would be covered up when wearing
Ann Taylor Sleeveless Drape Front Shell, Sz 0, $18, buy here (solid color)
This is an old fitting room pic I never posted but the shirt is still available in stores. I loved the draping and felt like the fit was pretty flattering but didn't feel like I could pair it very well.
Verdict: No, not something I must have
Modern Lace Sheath Dress, Sz 0, ~$80 in store, (buy here)
This is a beautiful dress, but it just doesn't work on my body type (please ignore the pants underneath - I was being lazy). It ultimately makes me look very matronly / Mother of the Bride-ish in the top portion but looks sleek and modern on Vicky here.
Verdict: No, looks much better on slimmer ladies
Any great shopping finds for you this weekend?
