~ Collection Wide Leg Trouser in Bi-Stretch Wool, Crimson Maple, size 8 ~
I am glad that I ordered these when I did. They were included in the promo, and removed from it by the weekend and are now sold out. I will take a guess that they will pop-back in the next few weeks as people make returns.
I debated ordering a size 6 over the size 8 since the material was a bi-stretch wool and there were no belt loops to add one if needed. The size 8 won out and though the size 6 would have sat higher on my hips, almost to the waist, and the length would have looked shorter, like in the model image, it might have run a bit tight across the booty. The size 8 are a decent fit and sit comfortably on my hips.
The back has a nice wide-leg drape in the size 8. I think the size 6 would have pulled too much causing major VPL. You can see the hem-line hits at the top of my wedge. I have enough cuff to let down if I want to change these to full-length trousers. Being 5'2", cropped pants always end up being the perfect floor length for me instead.
Here is the difference between a heel and a flat. I think the pant looks looks better with the heel. Maybe if the flat was the same color as the pant it might look more stream-lined and not so cut-off.
One more thing to mention is that these are fully lined. I will be keeping these and playing with the hemline a little to see if I prefer the sort-of crop of the full-length.
~ Collection Draped Silk Popover, Navy, size 6 ~
This top was not included in the promo but it looked so pretty online that I had to order it. I debated, again, between the size 6 and 8. The size 6 fit well through the body. The arms were a little snug. This is a pull-over and no extra buttons or zippers to open to help you ease into this top. The front is very low and open. They must have the model image all taped up. As you can see I added a cami but this will definitely drape open. I think I could have used some Hollywood tape to keep this closed but a silk cami will look nice with this top.
The whole outfit together looks really nice. The Popover has a wide hem that seems to grab the hips. It doesn't seem to move and will help the shirt drape like it should. I really love the Navy color and the Bright Eggplant looks very pretty online. I think the Bleached Sand would be very sheer and require a sturdy cami for it.
Overall, I'm still on the fence about the popover but the pants are a nice addition to my closet.
