Jeweled llama sweater (HO13, 07877, $98) – Not online yet. Made up name. The color code on this is DGA. Dusk garnet.
Size S – The blurred photos drive me nuts, but we will keep moving. The fit is tts. I like the colors, but I didn’t like it on. This one has a kitschy vibe, but not a kitsch I like. It also made me look boxy and feel fat. This sweater was mean!
The weave on this is easily snagable, so keep that in mind when choosing jewelry. For sweaters like this I just leave my wedding ring off and wear the flat band only.
Jeweled llama sweater (HO13, 07877, $98) – color grey snow (GSN)
Size S – This sweater has a more fitted silhouette. However, I would still say it’s TTS. You might want to go up a size if you’re trying to do a buttondown oxford under. This is the champagne Donegal (CDO).
These jewels looked plastic-y and a little tacky. I transported myself mentally to JCP and it didn’t pass the test.
Jacquard-stitch Fair Isle sweater(09030, $98) – Color code CAT. 100% wool.
Size S – I usually admire tribal and Aztec type prints from afar. I realize I wasn’t wearing them so I stopped buying them. I really liked this one. Plus, the wool is soooo comfortable and so cozy. Check it out on Life’s Divine.
Hey, a skinny shot on the left. Had to include that one. The right pic is to remind you to line up the pattern properly on your torso. If you have a larger bust, it will make a wave in the pattern. However, you should be able to place it so the pattern lays flat and doesn’t wave down the side of your torso. I’m speaking from a C perspective.
Another thing I liked was the contrast in stitching. I took 3 pics and this was the best one. It still doesn’t capture it. The stitching is in a regular v pattern down the arms. The stitching on the torso is a zigzag pattern, as if it’s inside out. It’s a very subtle contrast.
Jacquard-stitch Fair Isle sweater (09030, $98) – Color code NSD. 100% wool.
Size S – This is the same sweater as above.
Matchstick cord ($79.50) run regular 29-33 (03903), petite 24-32 (05640) & tall 26-33 (04472. Color choices are black, bright hydrangea, charlestone brown, dark charcoal, heather pine, navy, pinot noir, renaissance red, seaport blue, sunwashed sand and vintage aqua. The sunwashed sand are $59.99 in-store.
Size 30 regular – These were definitely too big. I usually take 29 in J Crew and that would be a much better fit. I would go for a 29P. These are sunwashed sand (SSA).

I’d like your feedback! For a long period of time I put up a review of one product at a time. It worked best for me for a number of reasons. The downside is that I have hundreds of archived photos that never were paired with reviews. I’m not exaggerating. I have tons of unused photos. I would love to share more reviews, so I’ve been trying to do an average of 3 a post. I try to do more than that in one post if I have time or if the items discusssed sort of go together.
How do you feel about the number of photos? Too few? Too many? Do do you like more reviews grouped together in one post? Any other feedback that would enhance your experience would be appreciated. Thanks!
