Weekly Shopping UpdateMay 03, 2013
I did a lot of shopping in April but didn't keep much; I am hoping May will be an unproductive month for shopping as well. I am toying with the idea of doing shopping recaps at the beginning of every month but am not sure that's entirely necessary.
Anyway...back to the topic on hand. My Diane von Furstenberg ♥ GapKids order was a big flop. I ordered two sizes - XL and XXL - and two styles to try on but did not decide to keep anything from the order.
The wrap dress was very comfortable (60% cotton, 40% modal) and the matching knit shorts were a nice touch but the proportions were all wrong for me (and I am only 5'2). I think someone my height should stay away from styles in this collection that have a defined waist.

|Diane von Furstenberg ♥ GapKids Romper / Snorkel Blue / XXL|
Length: 21.5" / Waist: 13" (elastic) / Underarm to underarm: 15" / Strap Drop: 4.5"
The romper in XXL is not as bad as the XL on me but it's still far from flattering.

I am intrigued by the J. Crew Tartine Satchel which comes with a shoulder strap and is logo-free. Has anyone tried this or seen this in stores?
