Happy Wednesday ladies. I’ve been doing a little Christmas shopping online and in-person so I popped into the dressing room to try a few things on. I’ve never thought of myself as a graphic tee person and this tee didn’t change my mind. I love the idea, but the execution just isn’t working for me:) I do love the font which reminds me of “The Joy Of Cooking” but I’m going to need something less “graphic” 🙂
If you’re new here, dressing room diaries are when I go into stores and try on new merchandise so you can see how it looks on a woman who is older than 25 and wears a size large than zero. For reference, I am 5’4″, weigh 145 pounds with a long torso and arms. I have broad shoulders, narrow hips, and very little waist definition. The lighting is dim so the pictures are grainy, but you’ll get an idea of what things are like.
I love the fit of NYDJ and this is one of my favorite styles. It has a nice high rise and this burgundy color is on major sale. I am wearing a 6P, which for this brand, means it runs true to size. They always suggest you size down to allow for the massive amount of stretch their fabric has. I paired it with this lightweight waterfall cardigan from Bobeau. The wine color is heathered so softer color than the jeans but coordinates nicely. I’m wearing a small so I think it runs a bit large.
I’ve been loving bootcut jeans these days so gravitated to this Natalie style by Kut From The Cloth. They have plenty of stretch and a nice shape. I am wearing an 8p which is too large. The website suggests you size down, and I would agree. I would need to wear these with a 1″ heel to make the length correct. This Henley top comes in tons of colors and is very soft. I am wearing a small and would not go up to my regular medium so I think it runs large.
I love the cowl neck on this top. It’s warm without strangling the neck:) It’s a waffle texture fabric and really cozy. As with most Sanctuary tops, I went down to a small which fits well. So for this brand, it’s true to size, but if you’re not familiar with the brand, I would size down.
This cozy tunic is sold out in most colors, and I know why. The price is outstanding and it’s perfect for wearing with leggings. I am wearing a small, which fits well so it runs a bit large and I suggest you size down. It’s available in lots of colors, depending on the size you need.
This faux suede jacket is such a versatile piece. It comes in 4 colors and has a tie through the back of the waist so you can cinch it in. The long sleeves have roll-tab cuffs so you can make it very casual. I am wearing a medium which is a good fit for me so it runs true to size. This is a super soft and sumptuous feeling…as is most faux suede.
I’m gravitating to more casual items these days because it just makes the most sense for my life. If you’d like to see dressier items, please let me know.
Thanks for reading ladies and have remember to wear what makes you feel confident.
