Today's Outfit

February 5, 2009
  • Lana Polka Dot Cami in Light Pewter
  • Lea Merino Cardigan in Heather Grey
  • Pants from Suzy Shier
  • Pearl Necklace and Bracelet.

A big thank you to FFM for her tips on how to knot a necklace. I was going to originally wear the pearl necklace unknotted but it looks sooooo much better knotted.

You look fabulous- and I love the knotted necklace! Perfection!

I have this top and I love it, mostly. I *hatehatehatehate* that stupid zipper on the side, which doesn't lay flat and is just generally annoying. Any suggestions? Yours doesn't seem to be lumpy or bending in the way mine does. Thanks!

Nice outfit it the gray! (I may buy the same cami in black polka-dot.) This is off topic, but in December you were trying to choose between the Classic Peacoat in dark poppy in a small or petite small. May I ask what you ended up with and why? I'm in the same dilemma - any advice would be great! :)

Thank Chloe!

KatyO, the zipper on my top lies flat. I don't really have a problem with it however, it could because this blouse is a tad larger on me. I really should have gotten it in a size 2. But I got the 4 and it's roomy. Could that be the reason?

Parkaveprincess, thanks for your nice words. :)

LJ, with respect to the Peacoat, I ended up keeping the Petite Small. The reason being that the sleeves on the Regular small were way too long on me. They came to part way down my fingers. To get them shortened would have been too expensive. The petite small sleeves stopped right at the V of where my thumb and forefinger join near the palm. So, I kept the Petite Small. What did you decide?

By the way, I'm 5'3.5" tall. I'm short because I have short stumpy legs. I have a regular torso but slightly shorter than regular length arms. I can wear both Regular as well as Petite sizes and often interchange between the 2. Are we about the same?

Thanks gigiofca!

Thanks for the info. We are about the same - I am just under 5'4". The XS was too tight (as you said) in the neck and underarms. I have a Small coming and will see if that works. (I generally can't wear petites - they always seem too short in the torso. Thanks! :)
