I'm doing a little shopping to fill the last few wardrobe holes before I go on SYC/SYB in January. I've been wanting this spice colored Tory Burch cardigan for months now and finally decided to try it out. They didn't have my size at Nordstrom anymore so I went to the Tory Burch site. And then what do you know, I found some things on sale as well. I fell in love with the rust/cobalt combo of these pieces. But they're pretty expensive even with sale prices so they have to be really fab to stay. What do you think, any of these keepers?
1-2, 5-6. Shrunken Simone cardigan in Arabian Spice size S. It fits well in the arms but the buttons edges are kind of scalloped making me think I might need to go up a size because of my tummy. But then the top might get too boxy.
3. Shrunken Simone, navy blue. I didn't realize this but the sleeves are too short so I think it's going back.
2-4. Hull skirt. I thought it was going to be textured tweed, but it's a very lightweight printed material. And it's a little short and "cheerleader"-y--my eyes have readjusted to midi length. So this may go back as well.
6-14. Radnor skirt. It's cobalt with rust orange accents. I love it, it's such a cool pattern. Feels like something I'd get at Anthro. The only thing is I don't like the flared silhouette of the skirt. It looks much better to me as a pencil style midi. I've grabbed the skirt in the back to simulate a slimmer pencil silhouette. Do you think it's worth altering/having it taken in? I've never had anything altered before other than pants hemming. Also shown with rust peacoat and rust outer jacket.
9-12. Rust colored silk shell. Does this look OK? I'm not so sure about the triangular seaming pattern in the front. You can see it best on #11, untucked.
15-17. Eva dress. I love the navy with white hearts, especially when paired with my red bow belt. But does this read vintage to you, or is it just too young/cutesy looking for me to wear to work?
