The perfect blazer… next stop LOFT!

I am on the quest still for that PERFECT blazer! The one I got on Ebay needs major alterations! Sleeves need to be shorten, get rid of the shoulder pads, lapels still huge! So one of the next stops I went to on my time off is LOFT. I love their clothing and their petite line. They always seem to fit me just right!

Blazer: sz 6 (from clerance rack) ($99.99)
Top: Flutter Strips Shell sz M ($44.50)
Skirt: Hearld Pencil Skirt sz 6 ($64.99)

So in order to get the skirt the “right” length, I decided not to tuck the shell into the skirt and put the skirt all the way up on my waist… and I mean up! I’ve come to the conclusion that no matter what, I need to get the sleeves altered. My arm length are soo short and NOTHING will really come in my size. Growing up though high school, I ALWAYS hated long sleeved shirts. They were always long on me and every time I rolled them up, they slide back down and get into my way. The lapels are definitly better than the other jacket. And the height… hey it looks good! The shell I’m not a fan of… it makes me a bit too fatter than normal. The skirt? Perfect! If I had the money, I’d buy it right then and there.

I’m still not sold on this blazer… I still think there is a better one out there that will look and fit better!… Hello… are you out there blazer?


Diamond in the Rough

It’s a sensation. Remember back in the mid 90’s when Beanie Babies were popular? Or how about Tamagotchi? If a store had them, everyone was in line to grab as many as they can! It’s was the hottest crave when I was in middle school!

This month, one of the hottest brands that are flying off the shelves are Missoni from Target. Missoni is a fashion house based in Varese. The brand is very well known for their patterns and colors. So when it was announced that the brand is offering low price items for every day people, every fashion freak was jumping for joy. I wasn’t a huge fan of the offerings, but I was eying some pieces and thought if I liked them in person, I’ll grab it. However, due to greedy people buying the whole supply and selling it for more than double the ticket price, Target pretty much sold out of all of their Missoni products within day 1! I was stopping in the target near my job to pick up my prescriptions the weekend after the opening and was hopping to see the Missoni products in person. However there was a huge sign saying “We are out of stock. We are sorry.” Yep…  However on my way home from a doctor’s appointment, I stopped by the Target near his office, and as soon as I walked in, what do I see? Yep, that sign with PRODCUTS! I had to touch them all to see if they were real or hollograms, and it was real! Alas, as you can see, that small section is all they have.

Missoni for Target Women Suede Heels Pumps sz 5.5 ($39.99)

One of the few items I was eying was these beautiful pumps. If they made size 5’s I’d jump on them in an instant really! Due to my petite feet and knowing for a fact I really don’t fit in Target’s 5.5’s, I wasn’t rushing. So when I saw these pumps at the store, I HAD to try them on. As you can see in the picture, they are WAY to big on me. My toes doesn’t even touch the bottom brown zig zag! And this is with my feet all the way into the back of the heel. I was thinking of the option of maybe heel grips, but the gap was way too big for me! *sigh* if they only fit I’d buy them in a heart beat! I was actually thinking about buying them and being those evil/genius who sell them on ebay or other marketplaces, but I decided to be nice to other customers in the area and left them for someone else. Oh well! =(

Missoni for Target Space Dye Cardigan sz Lg ($29.99)

When I saw it online, I wasn’t impress. Seeing it in person, still wasn’t that impressed. What made me try it on was to see how light it is. Let me tell you, it is light! It also feels nice and soft. However, as you can see the large is really big on me. It kind of reminds me of grandfather’s like cardigan. So even if they had it in a medium, I would have to pass.

Missoni for Target V Neck Sweater sz Sm ($29.99)

Okay bear with me on this thought… it look big in person! Yea… so I thought, “Hm… maybe small would fit me!” Okay so only a classy lady like me would show that 1) No, not at all! and 2) Show their “curves” in picture fourm. So yea… as we can see the small does NOT fit me at all. I might want to stick with the medium or heck even go for large! *gasp*! What I do like about this sweater is that it’s light weight and see through. What do I hate about the sweater is that it is see though and light weight… yea I am confusing. I get hot easily so I don’t get cold as often as most people. However when I do get cold, I get cold. So with a jacket? Maybe. Plus see through means I can wear something cute underneath it. Again, when I get hot, it’s one more item of clothing I need to be aware of. Yes, I am weird let’s stop stating the obvious. But for an average person, I think this is great for them!

So…. Did I really find the diamond in the rough? What items are you looking for/bought on ebay?
