This little blouse was all the rage in Blog Land when it came out, and I can see why. It's light, sweet, and fun. I took this in my regular size Small and it fit relatively well. The length deterred me from walking out of the store with it, though -- it's a touch too long for my short stature.
---Sea's Epitome Shirt, $58:
The sailboat print caught my eye as I walked past where this fun little tee was displayed. I'm wearing my usual size Small and it fits nicely. The fabric is a little nubby, which I love, and it has a nice stretch to it. I love the way the collar looks! That being said, though, I don't feel like this is worth $58. It just didn't feel "special" enough to warrant that price, if you know what I mean.
The first picture is of how I would probably style this shirt. I really like the coloring and fit of this shirt and I've been hankering for a "suckered" gingham shirt for a while now. I'm wearing a size Small and it fits nicely. It's a loose fit, which I'm sure is how it's supposed to be. The fabric isn't as soft as I'd like, though. Also, I'm not wild about the price. Methinks I'll be hitting up J.Crew's Suckered Gingham Shirt for $30 less instead. Also, J.Crew's version comes in fun colors!
"Parachute" Blouse, $49.95:
I don't remember what this blouse is called, but I'm sure you Anthro lovers do! It went on sale maybe two weeks ago, and I had originally tried it on in my usual size 2 and I hated it. However, I decided on a whim today to try it on in a size 6 (because that was the smallest size left in my store) and lo and behold! I love it a lot more! I like how much more loose and billowy it is in the bigger size, though the sleeves still look horrible on me. I adore it under the Cartography cardigan, though. Sigh. I ended up putting this one back because as much as I love it layered under cardigans and jackets, I can't justify paying $50 for something that can't stand on its own as well.
