I shopped!

Wednesday, May 25, 2011

Well ok, to be truthful, I ALMOST shopped. I was in Dupont picking up some Chipotle (woot salad!) and got distracted by the '50% off sale' sign in the window of Ann Taylor LOFT. I knew I shouldn't and really couldn't buy anything, but it never hurts to try stuff on right?

Luckily the world was apparently up for helping me stick to the promise I made myself, because nothing was all together that special. Or if it WAS special it was more expensive then I'd be willing to pay for in a normal month, let alone right now.

Still I figured my effort would make today a great day to post my first 'dressing room haul'. It just gives you all a chance to see some of the sale items plus a few pieces from the new Spring/Summer line. Let's get started shall we?

Don't worry people - I was 'eh' about the shirt and the shorts were TOO short. I'm not sure if this is a sign of things to come, but neither of these were a keeper.

The top may have had a chance if it hadn't been an XL, but since I already have a chambray shirt from Ann Taylor Factory, this one didn't really work for me (plus it had a weird bubble bottom thing going on - ick). The shorts, while longer, hung funny and I think made my hips and legs look wide. Next!

 Eh on these shorts too. I didn't like the pockets, the length, or how they fit.

This jacket though? I LOVE this and believe me when it goes on sale I'm gonna get it. Love the way it nips in at the waist slightly and has sleeves that can be rolled up so I don't get too hot.

Ignore the top - I didn't like it and this picture is all about the skirt. I loved the fit (if not the size) of this pencil skirt and the print was divine. Plus it was lined, which makes me feel I'm not going to have to worry about panty lines even with all the white. I'm going to be keeping my eye out for this during future sales.

And finally, the lone dress. Ick. The waist was too low and whatever the heck they were trying to doing with the faux-wrap went terribly wrong on me.

I hope you enjoyed my first 'dressing room haul'! Even if nothing came home with me today it's definitely given me things to think about for the future, which makes me consider this one a success (especially for my wallet).
