BP Moveover Pointed Toe Flat via Nordstrom - My last pair of black flats were good to me, but they finally bit the dust after a few years of hard wear. I wanted a pointy toe this time around, so I grabbed these. They are a bit flimsier than I'd like and are already showing some wear, so while I like them and decided to keep them, I don't think I would buy them again. Result: Kept.
Athleta Crossbar Tank - The best workout motivation? New clothes, duh. When Athleta has a sale, I do damage. This striped top was part of that. While I liked the color combination and the styling, this one had to go back. I bought a medium and the armholes hung far too low. Result: Returned.
Athleta Beloved Bralette - Somehow, I didn't have an all black sports bra. Problem solved. This top is simple, with a fun, strappy back, and supportive enough to rock either to yoga or to spin class. Very breathable and comfortable. Result: Kept.
BLANKNYC Faux Leather Skinny Pants via Nordstrom - Leather pants, always on my list. I had hoped this would be the pair. Unfortunately, my usual 27 was sold out, so I went up to a 28 hoping for the best. They were too big, baggy in the wrong places, and too long. And back they went. Result: Returned.
Highline Tank, Derek Lam 10C Athleta Collaboration - I wanted this to work. It's so cool! Plus, it's Derek Lam and I can be a bit of a label whore on occasion. Unfortunately for me, the medium was too big and the top didn't hold things as tightly in place as it should. Result: Returned.
Athleta Start-up Tank - So close! This top fit, was flattering, and gave me the support I needed. However, it came with deodorant stains on it, so there was no question that this was getting returned. Result: Returned.
