I'm in a cycle of buy-return because I can't try on too much in-store w/Mini in tow, so I made another trip yesterday. I had the promo in mind when I walked around. Here's what I like:
The things I really like here are the plaid shirt and jeans. I felt inspired to show two different ways I might wear them. A little funky on the left and more preppy on the right:
* cropped blazer ($39.94)
* cable-knit cardigan ($32.94)
* plaid flannel shirt ($26.94) - This is blue plaid. See the red plaid, also. The colors are so bright & pretty. I'm taking a M in this one for the bust.
* wool-blend car coat ($65 promo)
* DSW mojo moxy kandi booties ($129)
* Rock Star jegging ($34.94) - Still a fan of these. This is probably my 3rd mention if this color. Remember that red is still available in-stores. I agree w.reviews about going up 2 sizes.
* Vince Camuto Paula ($89)
Jersey maxi skirt ($29.94) - Machine wash. This caught my eye in-store about a week ago. I didn't try it on, but the drape looked nice.
Southwestern-pattern wrap cardigan ($54.94) - Opening price point is a shocker, isn't it? I guess it is only about $5 higher than it might've been last year, but it just seems high for ON. I tried this on yesterday. The volume and fit were good in the XS, but the shoulders were a tad tight when I did the Hulk flex check. I had it on over JC's tartan plaid boyfriend shirt from last year (the perfect shirt in tartan is similar). I would wear a similar weight top w/it -- just not plaid -- so I say go w/your regular ON size. If you have narrow shoulders & a thin frame, you should be able to size down one comfortably. Thumbs up on the pattern, colors, fit and feel. Something is truly wrong w/the reviewers if they end up panning this one. ETA -> this sweater is on promo for $40 + cardholder 30% stuff 'n' save = net $28.
Braided trim trouser jeans ($34.94) - I have these in 6 short and the length is perfect on me (5'2"), requiring a heel. That's fine by me because the addtl couple of inches really flatter the jeans' great lines and subtle flare. I never look at ON jeans in-store, so I'm not sure if they're can be found at the b&m or are online only.
Sequined tank ($39.94) - Personally, I'm cool on sequins. If you still don't own sequins and want to, consider this one. I noticed it online when I was looking around and have not seen it in-store. I saw some other sequin tanks that had huge sequins. They looked a little loud. This one looks mote refined. Most items that are online are in-store. They just hit at different times.
Smocked printed chiffon top ($34.94) - Good example of inventory differences. Smaller sizes have been sold out in this color online for a couple weeks now. In the stores I've seen a full row of them highlighted as a new arrival. FYI, there are 2 other chevron printed items that look similar to this pattern. One is a similar cut to this and the other is a tank. Don't get confused. You want the chiffon/poly top like this, not the rayon one that's a clear chevron pattern.
FYI, there's another top w/a similar cut to the one above and it is soooo cute. Keep on the lookout if you go to the store. It's a print top with a creme background & small red
The collared breezy blouse in animal print (pictured) is $19.99. These prices are in-store and before the addtl % off. ETA -> clearance is an additional 30% + 30% cardholder stuff 'n' save = a net $9.80 for this top. It also comes in a white/black animal print.
Thanks for stopping by. Please share any helpful info, tell us if you're eyeing something cute, y'know...chime in...
