I think this is a pass for me. Not quite my style.
I am not sold on the berry color, but it is definitely a mood lifter. I saw the dark poppy and it’s definitely a red and not orange or pink. I would say it skews more on the warm side of red than cool blue red. I felt that it was TTS and may get a 4 if I order one. I would usually get 6P for the sleeves and overall length, but I think I was ok with this in a 4. It’s too bad they don’t have a petite run of sizes to try on in the store.
Was this coat available last year? Do you own it or have you tried it on?
They are sitting in the box in the living room right now. I don’t want to hear DH ask me what’s in the box as I pull it out of the bag I snuck them home in. I like to have uninterrupted daydreams about my items when I open the packages. I prefer to not invite a running commentary because…well…that’s what he likes to do sometimes. Like someone is narrating my life while I am living it. DH is a wanna be comedian at home, behind closed doors, but sometimes I’m not laughing. What can I say.
More on the shoes later!
THANKS, Fabulous Florida Mommy for creating a few smashing Polyvore sets for them. That had me convinced if I wasn’t before. 🙂 In case I burned the URL, it’s http://fabulousfloridamommy.blogspot.com
ETA: I really, REALLY love them. They look exactly like the online pic. I am not disapointed in any way. I am usually a 7.5. Sometimes my left foot prefers an 8. I tried the silver black on in-store in 8.5 and figured I would rather gamble with a 8 than 7.5 when I ordered the color I wanted online. You can always add a pad on the inside. Glad I got the 8 and I may need a pad in the right foot, but so far it doesn’t seem like it. They felt good right off the bat. I didn’t feel the same about the Juliet heel so that one was a pass for me. The Penelopes feel comfortable both in height and on the foot.
I received my whisper lame’ in shell and I love it. I think I am ok with it because I got it for such a low price aaand, someone warned me that it was more pink than off-white. So thanks for the tip! It’s very pretty. I will try to come back with a photo of it in IRL. I’m not sure if there are more available online.
I bought this for my mom for Christmas. Interestingly, she is a size 2 and took a medium in it. The novelty sweaters do run a bit small IMO. She usually takes a S, not XS. So maybe size up one? I haven’t purchased one for myself, but have tried them on. I think sizing up is good unless you like a snug fit.
I was so lucky to find these in a b&m for $69.99 + 30% off. The Lizzie mocs are very, VERY comfortable. I am a 7.5, sometimes 8 and ended up in a 7. Interestingly, the 6 they had on display also fit! Apparently they mold to your feet. I think you might be safe to size down a half step. Don’t go crazy and size down 2 steps. 😉
I love the Art Nouveau ring (98370). I have a medium sized hand and usually wear 7.5 or 8 in rings. I assume that I purchased a medium ring, but it was unmarked. It’s huge and I love big rings like this. But it’s doesn’t feel totally heavy on the hand, which is nice. I was embarassed when it rang up as Gaudi Ring. It’s a reference to “an ornamental Gaudi building in Barcelona,” per the website, but it immediately registered in my mind as gaudy. *lol*
I got a fantastic CS on the phone and she talked me into chinos. I had been considering the buttercup pair and caved in at FP (full price). I happened to go into b&m the next day and they were $19.99 + 30% off. I just got the FP pair today in the mail and of course they are going back. I love the color as they have won me over with yellow. And for one of my non creative efforts I’m going to mimic the look they have with the gold sequin tank. I am curious to see if I can pull it off IRL. The one they show with it is *gulp* $400. Truth be told, I ordered no less than 4 sequin tanks & a sequin shrug cardi on eBay for about $50 total with shipping. Random labels from random sellers. I figure I can resell or giveaway what doesn’t work.
