I ordered these two pieces from BR this afternoon. I retired a grey knit dress last year and never replaced it and when I saw this one on BR I thought it would work. It looks a bit short on the model but I figure she is probably about 5-6" taller than I am so it should be close to the knee on me. (I hope).

I also saw the sweater with the faux leather panel. I thought it was quite an interesting look. I have enjoyed my white linen JCrew sweater so thought this might be a good winter alternative.

Has anyone seen either of these items in the store? If so, are they as nice in person? We have a BR in town but I'm not sure that it has the full selection so ordered online.
