I have not shopped the NAS before. I got a little over excited, and figured I would just send back most of the items from my online adventures. The first batch came this weekend. Unfortunately, I like more of them than I thought. Angie is correct that the photos online don't fully convey the good quality being offered.

So please be very critical and help me return stuff!

1) Dark floral and lace Chelsea blouse and DVF lace skirt. I would not usually tuck in all the way, but it am trying to show the fit better (it would help if I didn't have such dark cabinets). The skirt I sized up to a 6 on based on past DVf experience, but I still think it might look too form-fitting.

2) Same DVF black lace skirt, my last year DvF lace overlay sweater. I had meant to get a lace skirt to go with it last year but did not find one I liked. I think this looks good. (There is a similar sweater but with white background in the sale.)

3) Dark blue Vince pants with same color side stripe, plus Rebecca Taylor floral blouse. Again, I would probably not tuck this in. But I wanted to show the front of the pants. I think they pull a bit across the front of the thighs. What do you think? (For Viva -- I got 4, maybe should've been 6.)

4) same as 3), but with the addition of a non sale Rebecca Taylor blue jacquard and leather moto. Heads up, I got two in very different fabrications but same style too expensive and really need to send at least one back.

5) Halogen flower print sweater and Vince pants. I like this sweater a lot. Comfortable and good colors for me. If you haven't noticed, I'm a sucker for florals.

6) Cranberry Theory top with zipper and black Theory pants. Need some hem adjustment. Love this top. I like v necks and can't always find ones that are not too deep. I am all over the fact that this one can be adjusted with a zipper.

7) same theory pants. The other ruinously expensive jacket. Again a floral print, but on a moto.

8) same theory pants but I folded under the hem. pink cashmere sweater. The sweater looks kind of boxy here and it's not the softest cashmere I've ever felt, but I like the color a lot.

9) the Chelsea dark floral top again, J brand jeans (very thin and stretchy, more like leggings) in plum, Paul Green anthracite boots. Do the boots make my feet look big (they are 8.5h)? I just noticed I forgot to narrate the footwear in the previous pictures. I was going to get away from colored jeans this year but I like this color a lot.

10) The J brand plum jeans and the Theory cranberry top with the Rebecca Tylor floral moto, zipped this time.

Thank you for bearing with me. I look forward to receiving your always well informed and tasteful opinions!
