Two items reviewed in this post!
Mixed stone muscle tank top in stripe (SU15, C5967) run XXXS – XL. The color is called ivory navy.
Size S – Those are rhinestones at the top of the tank. I thought I got a close-up shot of them, but I didn’t. They’re nicely sized, but not so big that they make the top heavy in that area. This was a clinger at the belly. A size M would get too big under the arms. I remain stripesick, but this is a pass for me. Fabric is lightweight, fyi. And note that it’s handwash due to the stones.
Metallic foil tailored Bermuda short (SU15, C5591, $89.50) run 000-16. The color choices are gentle sea metallic, ivory bronze and navy gunmetal. 00% linen, 100% cotton lining. Made in the Phillipines. There’s also lightweight Bermuda shorts, which are selling out.
Size 6 – ivory bronze – I didn’t notice these on the website, but the metallic caught my eye in-store. This was the only color I saw. My VPS said that the navy gunmetal was nice. This shade is my personal favorite of the three choices. They were TTS for me. My hip measures 39″.
The shorts looked way better than I expected, given that I’m 5’0″. The cotton lining is so comfortable. I couldn’t feel the metallic at all. I like the belt loops. I almost want them to be 1/2″ – 1″ shorter on me, but then they would be moving away from the Bermuda length. I do have an old pair of J Crew or Banana Republic pair of Bermudas in navy that I’m confident that look good.
I’m on the fence about keeping them because I couldn’t think of 3 things to pair them with. Chambray shirt, stripe shirt, yadda yadda. Two easy, but predictable choices. I want to challenge myself a little more to justify keeping them, otherwise there’s a chance I might not wear them. Also, while I want to change my personal style, I’m not sure I want to take it in this direction. They remind juuuust a little of mens shorts as this is the length that George wears. I usually wear 4″ or 5″ inseam shorts.
