Lots of reviews lately, but I'm still working though my Piperlime haul. I got this DEX Boatneck sweater hoping for a great casual look paired with one of my favorite pairs of jeans, J Brand Lovestory.
I really liked the idea of this sweater. But even though the picture did look like it had dolman sleeves, the description on Piperlime didn't explicitly say so, so I thought maybe that it didn't. It definitely did. And in combination with the thick knit and boatneck, I felt like the sweater made my shoulders look extremely wide and broad. If I had been wearing skinny jeans with this sweater instead of the flare, I would have looked like an upside down triangle. The sizing itself is TTS, and the overall length is pretty good. It hits about mid-hip. The original retail price on Piperlime is $79, plus I managed to get it with an extra 25% off for a total of $60 plus cashback. Still not impressed. It's going back.
As you might have noticed, my hair got chopped off. And no, not on purpose, at least not by me. For the long version of the story, I missed my appointment with my regular stylist because I was still on the road from D.C. to T.O. and I was so desperate for a haircut that I decided to go to the local mall for a cut. Bad idea. I asked for a collarbone length cut but the stylist disagreed with me saying it would make the ends go all crazy and instead he'll make it shorter....and *snip*. Yep. He took off a whole three inches more than I had asked. Argh. I'm really annoyed. I look twelve years old. I'm not one to be overly attached to my hair...so as long as I'm the one who chooses to cut it. I know the cut doesn't look that bad, but I still hate it! And it takes exponentially more time to style in the morning. On the bright side, I probably won't need a haircut for another six months. Anyways, that's my sad, sad story.
I hope you all had a fabulous weekend (whether it was a long one or a short one). Mine was great except for the massive loss of hair.
