Alright the front view looks like I'm waring a hoola hoop. It looks ridiculous. And is it me or does it look too short on me? The back view doesn't look that bad. I really like the collar. The mid section saucer doesn't look too exaggerated as the front view, but I hate the way my bums stick out.
Pros: The buttons are military style and are really cute. The wool is thick and warm, and it doesn't irritate my skin which is a huge plus.
Cons: Well, it's pricey (regular price @ $128) and look at the pictures, need I say more?!
However, if the price goes down, I might try on the next size up and it might be just a bit longer.
This sweater looks cuter on smaller framed petites like PAG or MiniMaestra.
Next, the Melton Coat in 00P. I got this coat when they had the $75 one day sale last week, and I LOVE it. The 00P fits me really well and it looks great buttoned or unbuttoned. The color is a subdued pinkish purple, and Loft calls it eggplant. The only problem I have so far is that the last bottom has fallen off once already which was remedied easily by sewing it back on. When I bought the coat it lost one button already. (Not surprised now that I know how easily that can be yanked off). Don't worry, I got a discount for not owning all the buttons on the coat, and it came with spares. After looking carefully I realized that there are two reasons why the buttons come off just like that. 1. The metal hoop on the bottom of the button was not smooth, it had a bit of sharp edges, so threads don't get a chance when force is used. 2. The bottom button hole does not have stitching around it so buttons go in and out easily. I realized that they did that on purpose so that when you don't use the bottom button, the button hole is nicely hidden. Sort of a designed as a feature, but unfortunately turned out to be a bug type thing.
