Weekly Shopping Update

Mariella Dress | Capri Espadrille Maise | Via Limoni Clara
I have once again grown discontent with my bag collection and recently purchased the Kate Spade Capri Espadrille Maise bag (among others, I promise to discuss each one in painstaking detail). And it is a purchase I would recommend to those who already have a collection of versatile handbags but are looking to advance beyond the remits and safety of  "classically" shaped bags.

A few recent Ann Taylor purchases; most of which did not work out but I want to share pictures with those of you who are around my size. I found the Diamond Cross Border Shift Dress to be quite oversized (order 1-2 sizes down from your normal size) and the shape somewhat unflattering on those with even a hint of boobs (even me, who is average busted at best).

I purchased the Lemon Drop Sundress to wear to an outdoor wedding this summer but am not convinced of the design. The print and fabric are both very summery but the drop waist looks a little awkward on my long-torsoed body.

And I overestimated my ability to metamorphose into the size of garments because I did not order the right size in this Tweed Short Sleeve Dress at all. Fabric and quality are just so-so.

  1. Thanks for this post Elle! You just helped me saved a bunch of money :) I didn't realize the AT code included fs too and was trying to find filler items to meet the $175 fs requirement.

    Btw, F21 has 20% off going on right now for their F&F sale! The 20% off is only today for online (code FF20), but is good today until Sunday for in stores - check your e-mail for the flyer!

    1. Thank you Pauline for the F21 code! I wish I had checked comments over the weekend...could've definitely used a F21 code. :)

    Thanks so much Elle, AT code helps a lot! I ordered the lemon AT dress too and so wanted it to work but just as you mentioned the drop waist was cut so weird. I wish the waist band part which connects the bodice and the skirt was smaller or didn't exist at all, it would make the dress make better.

    1. Yes! The drop waist was not the most flattering; I had to perform some rudimentary alterations on it because I don't have time to find another option. Will discuss it in a future post. :)
