All of these items can be see in the Nov 2008 catalog —
The flannel Kate dress (99245), $198, p.78. Yeeesssss, the gathered area definitely accentuated my stomach. Not cool. I didn’t even want to bother with a belt to see if it would make a difference. The camel is very beautiful in person, though.
The Vita cami (10181), $98, p. 3 & p. 72. The size 2 sort of fit and I am usually a 4 or 6P. There wasn’t a size 4 to try on for comparison. The size 2 definitely fit across the 34Cbust, but sat in a funny way across the collarbone and upper chest. Very Gladiatorish. Um, no.
They definitely styled it well for the catalog & online. The neck tie makes it secretary-ish on the body and I wasn’t excited in the least. The collar doesn’t stand up and it doesn’t lay flat either. Also, the sleeves were odd. They hit right on my elbow. So they didn’t come above my elbow, but didn’t cover it either. I imagine the sleeves will hit people in different places. A pass for me on this one. Even on sale. IRL:
