H & M *recent and $5.95* – size small (similar here
As you read in my previous post from Friday, I bought the grand central green
and arana cream color
and couldn’t decide. I tried on the green this morning and it looked horrid on me. It washed my skin out since I am much paler now (no more sun bathing). I would recommend the color for someone who is darker than I am. It just was not flattering on my skin tone. So I am sticking with the cream! I have the green one up for grabs if anyone is interested.
Likes: I love the ruffle and lace combo. It’s very girly and feminine. It tucks in really nicely which is a must for me since I’ll be wearing this to work. The width/cut is surprisingly narrow considering most BR tops are very wide and awkward. So this is great news for petites!
Dislikes: The arm holes are big and you can see a tiny peek of your bra. The buttons are hard to put on and take off. The v-neck shape is a bit low-cut but workable. Near the chest area is very see-thru so make sure to wear a padded/lined nude bra.
If you want to buy this top, I would suggest going into the actual store because it’s on sale for $26.99 plus you get an additional 25% off on top of that. It’s still $49.99 online which irks me that they have different pricing online vs. in-stores.
Oh and loving my new H & M ring I got this past weekend! It’s a size small and fits my index finger but loose on my middle finger.
Here is the Aritzia BF blazer I bought from a fellow Canadian petite from AN’s forum. I decided to pull the trigger since several readers have emailed and suggested this brand to me. There have been some buzz about these blazers- check out Jean’s post
and Kelly’s review
on the shrunken version, and the gray version on Jessy
. Jessy from TheLittleDustPrincess
suggested on Twitter that I need to pair this with a really short skirt or shorts (thanks Jessy). The length is too long and the only thing I had were these seersucker shorts
(see on Kelly
). I sold my cream ones to a reader who had to have it but ever since regretted it. I was elated when I found this one on sale for $24.99 plus 25% off last Friday in 00P!
I had to roll up the shorts one extra roll for the sake of the blazer because it didn’t look right otherwise. I love everything about this blazer except the length. I am just too short to pull it off. The cut is amazing, almost like a tailored fit when buttoned.
I am sadly selling this so please let me know if you are interested.
It’s been so hot in CA that I can’t even take pics outside. I have to wait until this heat wave is over:(
