For those who were interested in seeing a better pic of the DIY necklace I was wearing in my PFC post, here it is:
Old Navy Dotted Chambray, XS, $25 (do not see online)
Elle was looking for a dotted chambray shirt on Twitter. So when I saw this at the store, I decided to snap a pic of it. Well, I fell in love with it. Up till now, I had resisted the whole chambray trend and now I've finally succumbed, lol. Thanks Elle for unintentionally enabling me ;) The fit is a little big. Usually ON button-downs in XS are very tight in the bust, but this one fit just fine. I would say size down in this.
Here's the tag - you can call Old Navy CS and they will locate it for you.
Printed Racerback Tank, Green Stripe, S, $18 (buy here)
I initially tried the XS, but the bust was too tight and I felt like I couldn't breathe. The material is a really silky feeling fabric (I'm guessing a poly?). The fit is blouse-y and a tiny bit on the low-cut side. I'm planning on shortening the straps a little to mitigate that.
Verdict: Buy. My current favorite color is green (especially in a striped format) and I'm collecting green items left and right.
Split Neck Button Front Blouse, Navy Stripe, XS (buy here)
I loved the stripes on this, but wish it were a long-sleeved blouse instead (a la Kelly's Equipment blouse). The XS is TTS, meaning the bust was tight and you can kind of seeing the gapping in between buttons here. The torso fits a little blouse-y and the shoulders fit well.
Verdict: Passed, cute, but not a must-have
Buttoned Drop Shoulder Dolman Top, Cool Multi, S, $18 (buy here).
I loved this kind of color-blocked take on the classic striped tee, but I did not love the drop shoulder. It makes everyone look like they have jiggly upper arm flab. I always size up for tees to ensure my paunch is hidden, but this S was very big and roomy in the torso. I would size down for this.
Verdict: No, do not like the drop shoulder
Printed Ruffled Top, Navy Dot, XS, $25 (buy here)
After reading Gigi's post (linked below), I decided to see how this fit. Overall, the fit was pretty good - skims the body without being too tight or loose. The negatives? The armholes were cut too low and the material is kind of see-through.
Verdict: No. It's a cute top, but I don't need it.
See Gigi's comparison post vs. J. Crew Natasha top.
Printed Racerback Tank, Warm Multi, XS, $20 (buy here)
Pretty print and colors! Fits well with a good neckline that doesn't dip too low. I think this would be adorable paired with a cardi or blazer.
Verdict: No for now. I came very close to purchasing this, but decided that I prefer the green striped one to this one.
Ruffle Trim Tie Belt Dress, XS, $30 (buy here)
Like Cee, I saw these green hearts and instantly thought of J. Crew's Heart Throb print. I was a little confused by the partial ruffle. It was like one ON designer wanted it plain and another wanted it ruffled. As a compromise, they went halfway...and it looks kind of strange. It's a slip-over-your-head type of dress with elastic at the waist. The fit was decent (fits well as shoulders chest, a little loose at the waist, and armholes were not too big), but it was too low-cut and I didn't feel like it was very flattering on me.
Verdict: No, but it's a gorgeous print
