First and foremost, the AT chiffon ruffle shell. When Jean from Extra Petite blogged about it, I jumped on the wagon and ordered 5 different colors in both xxsp and xsp. The orders trickled in last week piece by piece, and finally got 4 colors in both sizes. (still waiting for the deep blues to show up). The shells although very pretty don't fit me perfectly. I'm petite but with wide shoulders. The xsp fit very loose, and the arm holes are too big. However, the material is very elastic, so it hugs ok for the most part. The xxsp should have fit better except they made the shoulder straps narrower. What it meant to me was that it cut in too much and my bra peeked from the arm holes from time to time. The black xxsp seems to fit a little better, but the light colored xxsp ones are terrible in the fitting. So I decided to keep xsp for majority of my purchases.
This is how an xsp fits. Darn it, the bra straps show.
This is how an xxsp fits. You can't tell, but both the strap and part of the bra have potential to peek out.
Fits better on the width.
The pumps are one of my favorite recent purchases from Ann Taylor. I love the saddle brown color. Very versatile and great to wear with spring outfits. I had to size down for these pumps to a 5.5. I'm a size 6 in general, and never owned size 5.5 shoes. So this would be first pair of 5.5.
Now stay tuned to my second half of today's post - Chanel.
