I already posted my first round of things I chose myself. Which was a lot. And then looking at Angie's picks and those of other Fab-ettes (looking at you, Goldenpig) I came up with others.

The Trouve jacket is definitely my favorite of the lot. I like the shape and the material. I also like the grey sleeveless sweater that Angie says she will wear as a vest. I probably won't do that, because my neck is short and I don't want to add too much bulk around that. I did try it, here, looks very preppy, not too bad though! I like the grey plaid Paige denim for the color and print fabric, but I'm not sure if I like the skinniness of the jeans on me.

I also tried two dresses, a Tory Burch leopard print and a Betsy Johnson snake print. I did not care for the Tory Burch dress, though that's generally a brand that works for me. I think it needed a curvier person. The Betsy Johnson seems like a contender because I think the heavy jacquard fabric will help encourage me to wear the dress in the winter (I am always cold and often avoid dresses for that reason.) And then I tried them on again for picture-taking purposes, and I liked the TB more and the BJ less (it does a foldy thing around the neck that I don't like.) I wouldn't necessarily wear the silver boots, but they were in the closet and not the mudroom, so I figured I would at least get the heel in for test purposes.

I've been wanting grey leopard print shoes or boots since last fall and have returned a few pairs. The Vince Camutos are going back, too. They are okay, but I thought they looked too cheap (the calf hair print was not awesome on my pair) and the heel was a little high. (Sorry, not trying on because I already put the tissue paper back in.)
