Deck stripe tee (FA15, E1143, $49.50) runs XXXS - XL. Color choices are heather grey black, ivory navy and undyed neon flame. 100% cotton. Made in the Philippines.
Size S - I got a little excited when I saw this because stripes. However, I could see that it was lightweight which isn't a bad thing. Although the online description mentions something about fabric turned inside out, so maybe that's the texture I felt. The fabric has a nice feel but again, it's lightweight. It felt almost like a very lightweight sweater. I was very bleary eyed and in a rush, so I'll have to try it on again. Try sizing down one. The S was too loose on me. Maybe I'd like it more in a the XS. If you're tall or have long arms, I think you'll like this one. The sleeve and body length both felt long.
I don't mind extra fullness thru the body. It felt a little too full, though. Maternity gear flashback. Sizing down one would help bring it in a little more. The drop shoulder that concerned me. Not a fan. Lightweight items sometimes become misshapen or grow in length with wear. Not a good look with a drop shoulder. I agree w/reviewers about the material feeling like a lightweight sweater. It made me wonder if it will pill.
The cut could've been a great twist on a basic, stripe tee. However, it felt too oversized and felt sloppy. Sizing down one will help in some cases. It has received excellent reviews on the website, but I didn't get a solid thumbsup feeling. I will probably re-try because stripes.
Iridescent sequin pull-on pant (FA15, $168) run regular 000 - 16 (E1100) and petite P000 - P12 (E3472). Made in India. The color is called misty forest. (MFO). 100% cotton.
Size 6 - The fit was good on these. They should fit slightly slouchy, imo. They don't feel heavy, which is nice. These did not strike me as day pants at all. I would maybe consider them for a very late afternoon to early evening party. Most likely, I would wear them at nite where they would sparkle. It's a bit much for daytime. At nite, the base fabric of the pants might potentially come across as black in the dark.
I ended up returning the seaside pant in iridescent sequin (review) because I couldn't find a minimum of 3 tops to match with them. The 4 fit, but didn't accomplish the slightly slouchy look I wanted. I didn't want to find myself halfway thru my day with sagging pants that I couldn't adjust with a drawstring. It would make me regret tenfold the potentially mediocre top I'd picked out just to "make the pants work."
The drawstring makes a world of difference in fit. It doesn't feel like the pants are going to sag down. The 6 felt slouchy, but still a little too big in the back of the thigh.
I'm 5'0" with an average to potentially longer inseam for my height, 39" hip last time I measured. The pant length is ok, but felt just an inch or so long on me. I'd like to see the P8.
The drawstring is a big improvement. Love the uniqueness of the green.
