~ Wideleg Jeans, Vintage, size 8P ~
I do need some wideleg jeans and I have been looking for a nice pair a GAP pair I have had for years. I was hoping the Boden pair would work out for me. This fit well in the waist but was a little snug down the hips and upper thigh. There's a little stretch so that will work itself out. The length works well with heels but I would also want a pair to shorten and wear with flats. I was on the fence about the fading in front and back on the legs. I do recommend these if you are looking for a nice wideleg jean. I would stick with my Petite sizing on this one and on a re-order I would probably choose the Indigo. This comes in Black, Indigo and White.
~ Florence Skirt, Multi Seaside, size 6R ~
The print on this skirt is so pretty and the blues are very vibrant. Unfortunately, the pleats just weren't working for me. The waist was a good fit in the size 6 and the length hit me just above the knee. I wish this had been an A-line skirt without the pleating.
This is lined in cotton and has pockets, which are a nice bonus. I wasn't interested in any of the other prints in this skirt so this is a return and not an exchange. If you like this print, definitely get it. There was a scarf in this print that I should have bought. I would have worn that.
I think these orders were just a matter of timing for me and my personal style crisis I am trying to manage. I made the mistake of ordering some items while purging my closet and not re-assessing what I really need, other than the jeans. I still want to buy clothes like I work in an office, with people, when, in reality, I do not.
