In part 1 I showed you all the stuff that I tried on and/or purchased in-store. For part 2, I'm going to show you pictures of all the stuff I recently ordered online. I think the success rate of my online shopping was much much lower (which I guess is kind of a good thing since I get my money back).
First up is Gap. They had a 30% off sale so I ordered these polka dot jeans in 2 different sizes. I ordered the petite 0 and 2. I didn't even try the 2 because size 0 was already too loose in some places. I think the 00s would have been a better fit. The size 0s bunch up in funny places and I also think that they are a bizarre length on me. Anyway, I didn't love them enough to re-order them in the 00.
I also tried the Old Navy Rockstar skinny jeans. I tried on the regular sizing in-store at an earlier time so I already knew that they ran small. I ordered 2 pairs (one in white and one in dark grey) in size 2 petite. The funny thing is that although they are the same size, they fit differently! The white one was much tighter (I should have ordered a size 4!). The grey ones fit pretty nicely.
Here are the white ones:
These grey ones fit/feel much better. They are also a different material than the white ones. They're softer whereas the white ones felt like a really thin denim.
(I have another order of these jeans coming- the polka dot ones. I'll let you know how those turn out)
I also placed an online order at Target. The whole reason I placed an order was to try this shirt. They didn't have my size in-store. AND when I looked online I saw they had petite sizing! score! But alas, the fit was absolutely horrible. It was way too loose and boxy. Even if I tucked it in, the arms were too loose. I returned this sucker right away.
They also had this really cute Converse dress on sale. I decided to try it out but it didn't fit either! It looked rather sack-like on me. It's too bad. I really liked the greyish-purplish color and the paisley print.
The last thing I ordered were these Roxy Wool Lido Shoes. There was a holiday deal and these shoes were 40% off! They fit pretty ok. My feet are a little bit wider so they get kind of uncomfortable if I wear them around for the entire day. Also, the Roxy tag on my left foot is kind of scratchy and I'm really tempted to rip it off. I will say that they are SUPER warm and cozy since the inside has the fuzzy lining. I'd totally recommend it to someone with normal width feet. I'm hoping mine will stretch out enough for me to wear them comfortably.
Is your online shopping success rate much higher than mine? Let me know what your go-to stores are.
