|Free People Peplum Top|
The torso is short and loose (I am wearing size XS in the picture below) but the sleeves fairly fitted and this contrast was mentioned repeatedly in reviews as a point of irritation. A similar design with fluted sleeves was released recently and may be a better choice for those who like the consistency of loose sleeve/loose torso better.
A short-sleeved version can be found here.
|We The Free Solid Peplum Tee in XS|
My last Club Monaco order, which comprised the Claudia Leather Gloves, Betia Wool Cropped Pant, Nora Jacket, and Sybil Textured Sweater was 50% successful. The two items pictured below were returned because neither the cut nor the fabric was flattering on me. The Nora Jacket in particular was disappointing because of how stiff the material was (which is expected given that it's a linen/cotton blend but nowhere near deserving of its original $249 price tag).
|Sybil Textured Sweater | Mustard | size XS|
|Nora Jacket | Chili Pepper | Size 00|
|Lovers + Friends Lovely Top | Nude | Size XS|
|Tobi Lovely Days Top | Black | Size S|
|BB Dakota Joanna Pencil Skirt | Size 0|
These two ASOS jumpsuits were not keepers (the first because of its resemblance to a karategi and the second because I ordered it two sizes too small). The material (for both styles) is unremarkable so just assimilate visual information concerning style/design.
