I had eyed the J. Crew Cotton Crepe Safari Cat cardigan because it is A.) absolutely adorable and B.) lightweight. I received the garment measurements from Customer Service and felt very comfortable in purchasing the item. (There is nothing like have a gift card burning a hole in your wallet.) I just knew that I was going to return this cardigan, but when I tried it on, it was a definite keeper. On me, this cardigan is best worn open and I totally dig that it is shorter than my standard cardigans.
The Eloquii Trimmed Ruffle Shell in orange with taupe trimming was a great buy on a recent BOGO Free sale. I am still confused by Eloquii’s sizing, but I ordered my regular and the top fit well. The trimming looks a bit frayed, which I assume was done on purpose. It does not bother me because I do not plan on wearing this top without an overlay. Also the ruffle shell does not have the stretched knit back. For the most part, I dislike (strongly) stretched knit back tops because I do not like half flowy and half clingy. Rarely, if ever, does my back complain about being encased in non-stretch fabric blouses, especially if they fit well! *Am I the only one?*
