Top: F21 Tie Back Polka Dot Top. sz. small
Jeans: Loft Modern Trouser Jeans, sz.0
Bag: the Sak
These Trouser jeans are the 2nd pair of LOFT denim jeans I bought during a recent excursion to the outlets. Again, I am amazed that they're long enough! How lovely. I like the besom pockets on these, as sometimes slant pockets tend to add bulk to the hips on trouser pants. And I really like the more true blue shade on this particular pair. Most of the time trouser jeans come in such dark washes, which is nice and all, but how may pairs of dark wash trouser jeans can someone own? It's nice to have something a little different. Again, the quality on these seem very good. Just as nice as the many pairs of J Crew or Talbots trouser jeans I own. I do think that LOFT is a victim of vanity sizing though. I am not a sz.0. I should not be wearing sz. 0 pants. Oh well. It did make me feel good (which I'm sure is the point of vanity sizing in the first place.)
On to the rest. The top is another addition to my growing polka-dot collection. Yeah, it's from F21, and yeah, that shows in the quality and construction. After one washing the material has already started to look a little 'fuzzy' and pill. Eh. We all know F21 is for cheap thrills, so I wasn't expecting a lot in the first place. But it is darn cute. And what you can't see (and what I forgot to photograph) is that the back has this cute key-hole with a grosgrain ribbon tie. Very sweet. For $15, my small thrill was worth it.
