Toggle Coat w/ Fur, Sz 4, $30
This coat is marked down as part of their holiday deals for $30. I love the mustard color, fur, and toggle buttons. I think the coat is supposed to fall straight down, but (ahem) my rear was too big and made it bunch out a little so while the front looked fine and the coat felt fine, the back looked a little strange. I would not have noticed at all so thank goodness for Ping!
Verdict: I didn't wind up buying this due to time, but I'm undecided at the moment.
Striped Coat, Sz 4 (?), $59.90
I saw this coat on Jenny of Crazy Style Love and was instantly drawn to the stripes. It looked gorgeous on her, but not so much on me. I don't think I can pull it off.
Verdict: No, looks better on others though!
Faux Collar Shirt w/ Rhinestones, Sz 4, $20
I loved the feminine pink contrast and the faux collar / placket, but ultimately the fit threw me off. The torso was very blouse-y but the shoulders were a touch too small for me. I thought about sizing up to get a better shoulder fit, but didn't want a tent-like torso so put it back on the rack.
Verdict: Another no for me, but would look great on others
Blazer (lined), Sz 6 (Khaki) and Size 4 (Blue), $19.95
I've wanted a Khaki blazer for a little bit now so was excited to see this one (lined, no less!) at H&M for only $19.95. I tried both a size 6 and 4. The 6 was a little too loose, especially in the chest area. The 4 fit well in the chest and shoulders, but seemed a little tight at the waist. Sigh. Though not ideal, I wound up buying the Khaki in Sz 4. I justified it by telling myself that I never button my blazers anyway :P I used my 40% off coupon on this so the blazer was only $13.
Blazer tag for anyone interested
Lace Dress, Sz 4
I've been thinking about lace dresses ever since seeing Elle's WIFW post, so decided to give this a shot. It unfortunately was very matronly and dowdy on me (probably didn't help that I kept my pants on). The scalloped edge details are oh so pretty though.
Verdict: Big NO
Still doing well with managing my shopping, but the Holiday sales are nearly here and those will probably be too tempting to pass up. Will you be doing any Black Friday shopping?
