I went to Penney's looking for a new top. This is an entire month I have given them a chance and returned despite leaving with nothing all the other times due to horrific LOUD loud prints and sleazy looking fabric. (cheapie looking knits that have a slight shine to them). Unflattering sleeves abound besides the horrible LOUD LOUD multi-color prints. What happened to tops one can wear in a business setting or an affair in which a bit better dress is required. A solid color or a subtle pattern? They had them in store 5 months ago! I got a Worthington white with tiny navy polka dots, form skimming with puffed sleeve back then. I must have gotten the only decent top left because they sure STILL don't have anything since that I would buy. I would go there for retail therapy at times. No more.
SO: I slipped over to Belks and they had a clearance going on. I bought a beautiful petite length white pure linen lined skirt. It has pretty detailing near the hem. Subtle and pretty and feminine. I also got a pair of stone colored linen pants! No lining so when I tried them on I could see the leopard print of my undies shining thru. The fit was superb and finding neutral colored undies is absolutely worth it to have them. My legs are slender as are my hips and this pair of pants had narrow fit to the knees where it went to a slight but cut. Perfect fit. best fit I will ever find and there was just the one pair. The both items cost me $9.96 believe it or not!!! I will be headed back to Belks the way I used to go to JCPenney.
Anyway, those two linen items for under ten dollars to me was worth writing about Ooo la laaa. And again, the close yet skimming over the legs fit on those pants...I would love to find more like that. I'd be happy to pay full price. Here's a closer up look at the hem area. Click to biggafy.
Just checking in.
