I realized I never updated on what I kept. I placed an order right before I left on vacation and couldn't deal with it for nearly three weeks.

But I did get around to braving the heat and trying on my purchases. The T Tahari coat was tricky! I loved the fit and feel, but at first my hips defeated it. When buttoned, a large crease appeared at the waist. (Pic 1) It looked okay from the side, but I couldn't ignore it. I was almost resigned to sending it back when a thought of simply moving the button over. That did it! One inch is all it needs for no strain whatsoever. I bought a larger size as well, but it was oversized on top. I love the neat, sleek fit in this size.

The other keep is the Spanx faux leather leggings. I wear a lot of knit dresses in winter. The texture and subtle shine of these will be great for some contrast. The length is great, too. The larger size I ordered was barely snug on my waist, so I kept the smaller size for fear they'd stretch out too much. Thanks to Angie for the pick - I never would have tried these otherwise!
