Hello! I have more Scandal clothing reviews today. I just noticed on The Limited website that petites and tall items get a free, prepaid label for returns.
Dear Other Retailers, Please write that down as a future priority.
Neck-tie blouse ($69.95) runs regular XS – XL, petite XXS – L & tall XS – XL. Color choices are black, green and pink. 100% poly. Machine wash, tumble dry.
Size S – I saw this online and was sure the neck-tie was going to look like a sailor costume. It doesn’t. The polyester felt silky and didn’t make any odd noises. The fabric is lightweight. I didn’t undo the tie, so I don’t if it’s tacked into place with a stitch or if you can wear the ties straight.
Liv flare trouser leg pants ($98) run regular 0 – 16 and petite . Color choices are sage green, light pink, off-white and grey pinstripe. I reviewed the matching, pinstripe jacket in this post. The Limited website has been odd for me. There seems to be navigation issues. If you’ve seen something and then cannot find it again, know that I’m experiencing the same issue.
Size 6 – off-white – The description is that these sit below the waist. Relaxed hip and thigh. Flare leg opening. I’d say that they’re a mid-rise, definitely not a low-rise. They’re fully lined, which is pretty rare these days. The fabric is weighty and the off-white is fairly opauqe. You just never know till you get out in natural light. This color would look w/a black turtleneck in late fall and winter. I have yet to do a Christmas holiday outfit with light colored neutrals like white and gold. These would definitely be good for that type of look.
The two pieces together. I felt like I was 5’10” and 115 lbs. I don’t know if they have trick mirros at the store, but visually I appeared to be very tall. I think it’s the cut of the pants that’s flattering. I tried on the pants just to share info and was surprised that the flare leg looked good on me. I’m 5’0″ and would get the 8P in the pants.
Plaid cape ($228) runs regular XS – XL, petite XXS – L & tall XS – XL. Shell: 88% Polyester/12% Rayon; Lining:100% Polyester. I swear I read in a description that this was cotton, which I thought was odd. So I must be thinking of something else. Sometimes I’m nodding off when I blog.
Size S – I know. It’s difficult to shake Sherlock Holmes thoughts. Just give me a moustache to twirl and a pipe. The fabric felt fine to the touch. It’s a basic plaid. Not itchy, though. I wouldn’t expect it to be, but it’s nice that it didn’t give me the heebs when I tried it on.
The style is great in theory, but I couldn’t get this one to feel comfortable. I think sizing is key. I would go for a petite small.
If you have any questions, please ask in the comments. Latey, I’ve been nodding off while blogging and don’t always fnish my thoughts. When you ask questions or make comments, it jog my memory.
