I went out with friends to a chocolate buffet this afternoon - complete sugar overload! It was supposed to be a two hour affair - car, hotel, car, so I dared to wear high heeled pumps that are two hours max. Of course, then a friend insisted we go to the mall afterward, so I ended up for 7 hours in those shoes, walking a lot. I do not need to describe the sorry state of my feet now
While at the mall, we stopped at Arden B, and I have checked out three items I posted here previously: ruffled top, cream straight cords and a tunic. Here are some photos: first one is of the top ans cords in smaller size, second one of cords in bigger size and third one of the tunic.
Ruffle top - I have bought it, it didn't feel too clingy! I can post a better photo tomorrow if needed.
Cords- the cream color is very nice, the cord itself very fine wale and almost non-see through: you can see the pockets, but I had black underwear on and it was barely noticeable. From the material point of view it gets my thumbs up. The cut: the leg opening is probably (estimate) around 13-13.5", and I'd guess that the rise is about 8". Size 4 fit me perfectly everywhere, but it was to clingy to the knees and calves for my taste- I prefer more of a straight line. Size 6 had much better fit in the legs, but is too big around the waist. Overall I like them. If I do not find an alternative pair in the next month, I'd like to get the size 6, and have he waist taken in and the front pockets removed; of course depending on your comments.
Tunic- I am actually considering getting in red ( they did not have that color in the store). I would wear it over white shirt or black turtleneck with dark denim skinnies.
I would very much appreciate your comments/CRS on these three items. Thank you!
