After AN’s Fitting Room review of Lipsy I went to a Bloomies and tried on a few items for myself. Lipsy has a lot of really girly things…like frilly skirts and ballerina-inspired dresses. For dresses I fit reasonably well in a size 8 as the size 6 was way too snug on me around the bust. The size 6 was a snug fit in skirts but the size 8 was too loose. Armed with this information I felt more confident ordering online. I first spotted this skirt on Lipsy’s website but was sad that it had sold out in my size…after some search I found it on ebay for about the sale price on Lipsy. This is a size 6, which fits really well.
I usually refrain from ordering things on ebay when it’s a brand that I am unfamiliar with but I took a chance on this one. If I order Lipsy again I would probably go through ASOS since they are offering free shipping and free returns.
And Mellisa at A Working Mom’s Closet is organizing a challenge for National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. She challenged bloggers to wear pink (can just be accessories or accents)to raise awareness. I have a ton of pink things in my closet but most of them are probably inappropriate for work (see Exhibit A and Exhibit B). I am only peripherally participating but love all the pink outfits.
Two outfits from this week and last.
Blazer: Theory Gabe B in 0
Shirt: Stationwagon in S
Skirt: Victoria Secret in size 0
Tights: Betsey Johnson Sweater Tights in S/M (photos are blurry but it’s a flower print, super comfy)
Shoes: NYLA in size 7
I ended up wearing a different blazer to work with this outfit because it was actually really cold. But I only have pictures from before I came to my senses so here they are.
Blazer: Theory Amanda B in 00 (linen material, not very warm at all)
Shirt: Polo Ralph Lauren in size 0
Skirt: Bought in Taiwan, OSFM
Shoes: Rampage in size 7
