The first stop was Banana Republic. I really liked their dresses, but sadly they just don't fit my body type. These were in size 00 petite and it zipped up just fine, but they weren't flattering. The hemline was too long (not a big deal if I tailor it) and my ribs just stuck out like crazy (so NOT flattering or fixable with tailoring). I tried on 3 total. Here's one of them.
Notice the bulging rib cage and the paunch around the belly. yuck.
I also picked out this bracelet but after some deliberation decided to return. It was just a little too big for my wrist. Such a shame, I really liked the orange with the gold hardware! Kinda reminded me of Tory Burch.
I also tried some items on at Forever21. I know the quality there isn't great but it fits me so much better than some other places.
I was debating between these two jackets. The left one looked more flattering in person than in photos. After looking at the photo, I decided to pick the right one instead. What do you think? Did I make the right choice?
I saw this green polka dot sweater online and really wanted it! But at the time I didn't want anything else (and didn't want to pay for shipping). So I was super happy to find it in-store!
And here's a picture of me wearing all the stuff I bought from F21. Not that I bought it to wear together. Just thought I'd do it and see if I could find some cool pairing that's usually not my style. I totally forgot to take a pic of the skirt while in the dressing room but here it is in this photo!
Sidenote: Hubby says I furrow a lot. And after seeing all these pictures... I think he's right! But I can't help it! Anyone have any suggestions???
As I mentioned in the title, this is only pt.1. Part 2 consists of my online orders. I decided to break it up to 2 posts so it wouldn't be toooooo long. I think I may have a shopping problem? I also have to finish up my vacation posts but I didn't want to delay these shopping posts in case there's something that some of you may want (while they're still in stores).
Did any of you buy anything on Black Friday or Cyber Monday?
