1. Roll Sleeve Drapey Shirt in XXSP:
This first item is also my favorite! I love the slinky feel of the blouse, and it drapes absolutely beautifully! My store only carried this "Evening Sand" color, but it also comes in a "Teak Green" online. The only issue I have with it is that it's quite sheer and usually would definitely need a cami. But given the strategic front pocket placement, I think I can get away with a nude-colored bra. Verdict: Want!
2. Tiered Ruffle Shell in XXSP:
This one never caught my eye at first, but looks lovely on Kelly at AlterationsNeeded. It doesn't hang quite right on my frame though, and I'm not crazy about the banded hem. Verdict: Maybe if on super sale.
3. Pleated Ruffle Button Down Top in XXSP:
This one was obviously a fail. Huge and shapeless and I'm not a big fan of the asymmetric ruffle. My search for a white ruffle top continues. Verdict: Pass.
This is an older item and is no longer available online, and any remaining stock is probably on the clearance rack. I actually quite liked it despite being initially wary of the stripes. The material is a thick knit and is very comfortable. I initially passed and was waiting for it to go on sale, but it seems to have sold out at my store. Verdict: Not available.
5. Island Flower Peplum Top in XXSP:
I like that the neckline and armholes fit, but the side view just wasn't very flattering on me. I'm on the fence about the print as well. On the upside, this is a good top to wear to a buffet since it can probably camouflage a post-binge tummy. Verdict: Pass unless deeply discounted.
6. Twist Pleat Shell in XXSP:
Last but not least, this is another great LOFT spring shell! If I didn't already have the Abstract Print Shell from the last post, and this exact same style blouse in two solid colors (see here & here), I'd be all over this one! Verdict: Must... control... self.
I have more pics from another store (can you guess which?), but will save it for part two. Thanks for reading and have a happy St. Patrick's Day! And also Happy Match Day to any med school readers out there!
