I really need new trousers. A couple workhorse pairs that I can count on to fit every time I put them on. Sadly, the ones I have by Ralph Lauren don't currently work. I'm going to hang onto them because I have hope that they will fit in the future. Last nite I went to Macys, hoping to find similar RL trousers and just go up a size. There were a lot of tight pants from all labels. Way too many ponte pant choices. I was easily distracted by the sale racks. I left with a few things and not a stitch were pants:
Charter Club - 3/4 sleeve printed dress - I knew the cut of this dress wasn't going to work for me, but I took it home anyway. At the very least I knew I could share pics, which I'm glad to do since their online depictions leave much to be desired. This dress was around a net $35 after an addtl 30% off + a 20% cardholder coupon. Bargains are often better in-store, but not always. The fabric on this is heavy and the print is beautiful. Makes me think of Milly. I saw another Charter Club chainlink print wrap dress awhile ago in a circular. It also comes in petite. I love chainlink and wanted to try it, but I know wrap dresses don't work on me. It's still intriguing, though, now that I see they've stepped up the Charter Club game. If you see the label, definitely check it out. I used to look, but never really buy. Something has definitely changed. At least for the rollout that's in-stores.
Ralph Lauren - Haylie printed jersey top. This was dirt cheap, too, like a net $22. I knew that cap sleeve and turtleneck were going to be a bad combo (36C), but I wanted to try it on anyway. The houndstooth is like a plaid, like a plaid, like a houndstooth. It doesn't matter. It's a cute print. No houndstooth near the face for you? How about a houndstooth RL rug or RL blanket.
This morning I looked for some pants online, but didn't see any. There were a really, really cute pair of Charter Club pants that were heavy weight. I meant to get those to try in grey; they didn't have black. But like I said, I was so distracted by the sale racks. Which reminds me...this RL Cora polo was
I have to leave, so I'll look around online again tomorrow for pants as well as visit another store. While looking online I found a few more items of interest:
* RL Fair Isle mockneck - I'll always look at digital prints thru a critical lens, but I love that this is cotton. Cotton's heading toward unicorn status these days.
* RL Lambswool plaid sweater
* RL long sleeve plaid flannel - Red with a lot of white in it. I likes it.
* RL plaid tee ($29.98) - I think this is a digital print. Cotton. Remember that codes do not work on Everyday Values.
Happy Halloween! It's J Crew modern red cardi and something w/a black print for me. I will likely dress up later. I wish I'd decorated for Halloween. However, we did manager to get to a pumpkin patch over the weekend and that was so cute & fun with Mini G. I was going to attempt a diy costume with felt & tulle, but time got away from me. Heck, I never had it in the first place (slaps knee). I bought her costume and I don't feel one bit bad about it.
