Pardon me for prevailing on you all so much in the last few days with so many posts. But my stuff has arrived and I could really use your considered judgements and thoughts.
Up for review, two VC banded tops and two of the tube skirts.
#1-5 shows the black top and the lapis skirt. The top is in XS regular. The skirt is XS. It is a bit loose around the waist but I don't think this necessarily matters. My concern is the top; as several others have said, the bands do not lie flat.
Interestingly, my husband, who was so annoyed at the little bump in the portobello skirt, does not find the bump in this top a problem at all! But it bothers me, so I think it needs to go back.
However, what do you think of the style and cut for me? Okay, or not? If it comes back into stock in XS petite, I could perhaps try it.
And the skirt. Do you think it would be better shortened? It is an easy thing to do with a good pair of shears because it's not finished on the bottom. If shortened, to just below the knee (as I show) or a bit longer than that?
#6-9 show the banded top in XS petite. This fits better and the bands do not bump out. But what do you think of this colour/ pattern for me? I will reserve my thoughts until I hear yours.
The skirt again in ink blue. This time I am showing it with booties so you can see how that looks. I probably wouldn't wear this with bare legs and dark booties (I'd probably add tights to tone it with the booties) but I wanted to see and show the effect and get your impressions on what length would work best.
#10 shows this with my black jacket. One interesting thing I noticed as I played around the closet was that the black jacket was the ONLY one that I could see wearing with this striped top. I simply don't have another that would look good with it. Hmmm.
Thank you in advance for your thoughts. I really only want to keep stuff that I am going to love and that moves me forward. So please give your honest thoughts.
By the way, in terms of comfort factor, these are all 10s. Super easy, comfortable pieces to have on.
