Taryn Rose Brigid Ballet Flat Review + Ann Taylor LOFT Ruffle Front Cardigan

October 18, 2010

I posted a deal on these Taryn Rose Brigid Ballet Flats last Monday and was so excited about getting them for almost 90% off retail (I have a hard time saying no to great bargains). I ordered a size up from my larger size (I wear 6.5 or 7 but ordered 7.5) because the reviews said the shoes ran short. I should've ordered the 7's because the 7.5 was about half a size too big. Sigh...the perils of ordering shoes online.


And I am LOVING my new Ann Taylor LOFT ruffle front cardigan. I drew inspiration from AN and wore a blazer over it.
The blazer is Theory Gabe B in 00...I bought it off PAG for a steal from the AN Marketplace. Really beautiful though it looks a little awkward with the cardigan (I need to shorten the sleeves on this baby, the drycleaner/part time tailor wants to charge me an astronomical amount for the alteration so I decided to try my luck with my usual seamstress). The skirt is BCBG's Textured Skirt in XS that hasn't been worn in a while.

If anyone has this cardigan in dusty pink or gray in a small size (XSP, XXSP, or in regular) for sale, please let me know. I would be more than happy to buy it off you. :) GOT IT!!!

  2. I saw the ruffle cardigan at my LOFT a couple weekends ago, still available in XXSP but marked at $55 (crazy!) so I didn't pull the trigger. Maybe if it's still there and cheaper I might! The shoes are cute... and 90% off retail? I'd have a hard time saying no to that too :P

  5. Sucks about the flats not working. :(

    Beautiful choice of outfit colors! Kelly has def. inspired me to incorporate more blazers into my outfits! :) Can't wait until I can start wearing them...still not cool enough.

  6. The flats are adorable! I tend to stay away from flats now 'cause most of them hurt my feet after a while of walking. So bad. :( I think your outfit looks lovely even without the blazer, and your skirt is gorgeous. : )

  8. Oh wow... I usually stay away from flats because they're, well, flat. But the tiny little heel looks like it does wonders! I might have to reconsider my bias against flats now...

  9. Oh, I'm totally with you on ordering shoes online!! Its so frustrating, although I have figured out some brands and usually get their sizing right! Unfortunately, due to sizing issues, its how I usually have to buy shoes! Your outfit is so cute though! I just love the ruffles with that blazer and the skirt is so great!! :)

  14. Ping & PLG - These flats are pretty comfortable...just a bit big. I think I can make them work with some inserts. :) The price is pretty hard to beat so I am not too upset. :)

    Michelle - it's getting to be so cold in CT...I am jealous that it's still warm where you are. sigh...

  15. Beautiful outfit I'm totally digging that skirt! I'm wearing my ruffle cardi (in the rose colour) under my LOFT blazer today ;)

  16. Those flats are too cute!! I really like how you paired the ruffle cardigan with the blazer as it looks very chic and pulled together. Also, love the soft colors!

  17. The shoes are so pretty, what a pity you can't wear them! The pop of color is adorable against the neutral blazer and the skirt. I think the ruffle cardigan is available in full price (online and in stores) in black if you are interested in that color.

  18. The cardigan looks so pretty with a blazer and skirt in that color! The blazer looks really nice with ruffles peeking out!

  19. I love this outfit!! Especially the BCBG skirt. I usually associate those skirts with a night on the town, but you make it work so well for an office. Is it a longer length or does it just look long on you because you're petite? :) The ruffles peeking out underneath the jacket is cute!

    It's a shame about the Taryn Rose flats =/ They look soo much better in person than on DSW's site. Have you thought about trying some padding? I've heard that could help up to about half a size.

  20. Are you going to try the flats in the smaller size? I think they are super-cute!

  21. Curls - We are outfit twins! :) I am loving the look and never thought I could pull it off.

    Hanna - I found the pale pink color...had to order from stores and pay shipping but it's better than nothing. I have too many black items in my closet. :)

    Cee - I definitely will! I think the padding will work...it's comfortable otherwise. The BCBG skirts are meant to be about that length, I just wear mine pretty high on my waist...that's why it looks about normal length. :)

    Lisa - I am keeping these and will try to make them work with some padding or inserts...the difference is only half a size so I think I can make it work. The reviews were pretty misleading for me though.

  22. The colors look great! I love the combo of the cardi with the skirt - they just look like they are meant to be paired together.
