The last two Fashion Fridays have been Texas-sized Dressing Room Diaries, showing you the cutest stuff I loved most! The shots aren't good, the lighting is bad, my hair is usually past it's expiration,...but it's real life, real girl, real clothes...and hopefully helpful for you to see them this way, instead of perfectly styled on a model.
Today I thought I'd share what I'll likely keep, and what I would keep if only I had a money tree. Or a sugar daddy. Either would work just fine.
These scoop neck tees are the best I've found in awhile...flattering neckline and arms, loose enough to be comfy, but not so wide you look schleppy. I already had a couple of striped ones, so at $15 I added solid white and black to my collection.
I love the slightly higher waist of these jeans (it gives the illusion of longer legs!), the minimal distressing, no weird whiskering in the crotch and hip areas (who wants to call attention to their crotch?!), and dark rinse.
And the boots. #huminahumina The leather is soft, the footbed comfy, and the color perfection. I think they are a great Look-for-Less of these much pricier boots, too!
Fit note: I wear an XS in the tee, and 3 in the jeans. The boots are true-to-size, with plenty of room for my 'athletic' calves, but wide-calf is also available.
So the only place I'm still undecided is the booties...I'm having a hard time narrowing down my favorites. These are by far the comfiest, with a nice cushy insole, and just enough heel height.
Fit note: I wear my usual size 26 in these jeans. I could probably size down one, but I prefer eating room for tacos. And the boots are true-to-size.
Fit note: I sized up one in the sweater for a more relaxed fit, and to allow room to layer over a shirt when the weather cools down. The boots are true-to-size with thin ankle socks.
Another great staple...this washed shirt is light, flattering, and laid-back. I'm wearing it with the same dark-rinse jeans as above, and the fringe booties in gray.
Fit note: I sized up one for a more relaxed fit in the shirt, but my regular size worked, too.
Here's the same shirt and jeans, but with the putty colored fringe booties...which I love from the size, but not sure about the front view.
This wrap sold out quickly, and now I understand why. It's seriously become like my security blanket!! I'm not even kidding...I change in to it with my pjs the second I get home, and my whole body relaxes. I know when the weather cools I'll be wearing it out of the house, as well. (It's fully stocked in the non-sale colors, fyi.)
Fit note: I didn't care for the fit and length of the striped version. The small fits great in the solid, and would work for anyone usually an XS-Medium.
Okay, I cheated a bit...this dress isn't actually part of the Anniversary Sale, per say, but I couldn't resist a new color in my favorite dress. (See it styled multiple ways here, here, here, here, and here. Do you see why I added another color to my collection...it's clearly my go-to!)
And I was surprised by how much I love these low-ankle booties...love that they show a bit of skin when worn with jeans, and are a nice streamlined silhouette when wearing with skirts and dresses.
Fit note: I wear an XS in the dress...a Small does give a bit more length, but the armholes too long and the body too wide. You want it to drape, not hang like a sack. The booties are true-to-size.
I don't really need this dress, but it's so darn comfy and chic, not to mention, a great price. It will be great to throw on for a pulled-together look during the day, or heels at night...and with booties in the Fall.
Fit note: Go with your usual size for a body-con fit, or size up (like I did here) for a slightly more relaxed look.
I kept this romper. And the creeper.
Fit note: I'm wearing an XS. The wide waistband keeps them in place without rolling down, and there's even a handy pocket. For what, I'm not sure. What do people tuck in the waistband of their pants when working out?
Okay, now a few things that I would keep if I didn't have kids to feed and a mortgage payment to think about.
Now back to the booties...clearly I can't keep alllll of them...but they are all so cute and create such different looks! Which is your favorite? I tend to go with camel and taupey shades because they go with everything...but the gray is fun, too.
a. Fringe Bootie in 'Gray' ~ the fringe adds a fun touch, & gray is different
b. Low Ankle Bootie in 'Taupe' ~ low profile is great for jeans & skirts/dresses
c. Chunky Bootie in 'Brindle' ~ most comfortable of the group
d. Fringe Bootie in 'Putty' ~ fun fringe in a goes-with-everything color
So tell me...which booties are your favorites...and what are your best scores from the sale?! Happy weekend...and final shopping...lovebugs!
