A Statement Sleeve Top For The Win
So I’ll admit, I’ve been a bit behind the curve on the whole Statement Sleeve thing. A little resistant, actually. As fun as they look, I couldn’t get past the image of all that fabric dragging through my salad at lunch.
I’m not sure what originally inspired me to order this top, (other than the fact that the sleeves were a bit shorter, and it was offered in Petites) but I’m so glad I did. I absolutely love it! Another excellent addition to my Going Out wardrobe. (And I’ve lunch-tested it…no salad mishaps!)
The crepe fabric has some body to it, and it doesn’t cling. I took a chance and went up a size from my usual, and my instinct was correct. (I’m wearing 8 Petite.) There are bust darts in the front and shoulder darts in the back. It’s machine washable and comes out of the dryer without a wrinkle.
I’ve had this Chanel classic flap for years. I still love it, and have decided to start using it more, rather than saving it for special occasions. Here’s a budget-friendly bag with a similar look.
Those silver brocade mules were a lucky find in Vancouver, when Lisa and I flew up to visit Frances in June. They were on the clearance rack at Brown’s Shoes, and I’ve never seen them online since. Here’s a pair in the same aesthetic ballpark.
Are there any styles you’ve changed your mind about recently?
