Gossamer Henley - $49.95
I saw this top on a really cute girl this past summer I believe at the downtown store. When I saw the price, I was so shocked to see that it's almost $100 for a piece of thin fabric. But it hung so well on this girl that I had to keep an eye on it in case it went on sale. When I saw this in my size, I had to get it. So I got the striped and the purple color way. The fabric is a little sheer but I'm ok with this since it's so comfortable on. I love the idea of wearing this with tights and if I wanted to, without a cardigan with it.
I think I've tried the Alice coat in every single color available. I even bought the purple color way a while back but returned it for the clinton trench. Girls, have you ever loved something so much, in theory, but once it's on you, it's just underwhelming? But you keep going back to it, hoping that it'll fit differently the next time you try it on? I wanted to love every color of this sweater, and I do...but it's the fit once it's on me, I believe, is the issue. It just didn't flatter me as much as I'd like and the fabric itself is a little thin, that whatever I'm wearing underneath, can easily add bulk to the coat. Alice, you are a hard to catch chick. But you're not for me...and I've come to terms with that!
That's it for now. But before I leave, I have good news. Chris and I are meeting with our wedding photographer tomorrow night for dinner. He's finally done with our wedding pictures and we'll pick up the DVD tomorrow. I am SO excited. I will definitely be sharing more pics with everyone as soon as I get them!
Have a lovely night!
