Lioness Stripe Bodysuit - When I saw this bodysuit on Jess, I thought, "I could do that." Oh man, was I wrong. First, I am an idiot and checked the crotch for snaps and didn't find any. Ok, must be a pull-on style. I remember those from ice-skating. So there I am, topless, struggling to get this thing over my shoulders and it is just not happening. How could anyone get into this? Well, I quickly discovered how when I checked the crotch again and yes, there were snaps. Facepalm. After I laughed hysterically at myself, I really put it on and the deep v was too deep for me. There was way too much boob happening. If you have a smaller chest, I do think this is really cute. Result: Returned.
Splendid Caracas Sandals - I got rid of the majority of my sandals this past summer and I needed to replace some of them, especially since I'm headed to the Carribbean in a month. These were on sale, they were neutral, and they were strappy. And they fit! And were comfortable! They'll be coming with me on vacation. Result: Kept.
LL Bean Saturday T-Shirt in Boatneck Long-Sleeve Stripe - LL Bean is a lifelong favorite of mine. Yes, it can be a little matronly in some cases, but they've done a really good job in recent years of keeping the old customers happy while adding new ones. I need another striped top like a hole in the head, but whatever. This is great because it's somewhere in between a sweatshirt and a tee. The material is somewhat thicker than standard cotton and even though it's a boxier fit than I normally would go for, it's a nice weekend shirt. Result: Kept.
Free People Lace Up Bodysuit - Yes, I tried the bodysuit thing twice. This one is my favorite waffle henley fabric that reminds me of being super cozy. Unfortunately, the sizing on this was crazy. I ordered a small (my regular size) and it was so tiny, so fitted, so tight, that I was having trouble taking deep breaths. I debated exchanging it for a medium, but just ended up opting to return it. Result: Returned.
LL Bean Signature Nautical French Sailor Shirt in Stripe - It's striped. It's laced-up. And it's not a bodysuit. End of story. Result: Kept
