I tried on a few more things with those ruched shoulders (because, you know, I'm obsessed with them), including the charcoal grey version of the little jacket I have. This is it in a size 4:
It doesn't fit as well as it does in a size 2. But the size 2 is pretty darn snug on me. Why is it that I always find myself in between sizes? Is it just me?
I also tried on this dress, even though it's not really my style (much too girly), but I thought it had a lot of styling potential:
Please excuse the tights, I was wearing them under my jeans to fight the freezing cold weather. I am wearing the dress in a size 4, and as you can see, it is a little ill-fitting. Here it is with a belt in size S, which of course, was still too big to properly cinch around my waist:
The dress looked better belted, but I really couldn't hide the fact that the dress was still too big. I needed a size 2. The dress also comes in a light pink color as well as this taupe-y grey. It costs $39.95CA. It is quite pretty though.
In the end I purchased this t-shirt with ruched shoulders for $12.95CA in XS:
It comes in a multitude of colors including black, and purple. I just realized that have been really into grey lately, and I'm not sure why...but yes, I bought it in dark grey. =/ I also tried on a similar item that was actually dress , but same neckline and shoulder detail (in black this time!), but I didn't really like it.
Other purchases for the weekend was this Rimmel lipstick in Nude Delight. I succumbed to purchasing this in Canada because I could not find this at any store in the US, oddly enough. It is a very nice warm nude color:
I also purchased this Jacob top (size XS) using my GC from Christmas:
I'm not sure if you can tell, but the top is a very pale grey color. It also comes in black and cream. I thought it was a great top that I could use under a suit for work, or on a night out (I'll post some sample outfits tomorrow!)
All the sale item in Jacob were an extra 25% off. Club Monaco was also having an extra 30% off all sale items; I was so tempted to buy something! Especially since it's pretty rare that the CM stores in the US have an extra % off their sale items. I resisted though! I pat myself on the back.
I hope everyone had a great weekend!
