|Essential Georgette Heart Shirt|
Earlier this week I returned my entire Forever 21 order as well as the polka dot dress from this post. Who am I kidding? I have no patience to do any alterations myself so I need to be better about finding items that fit. Armed with my store credit I decided to poke around since I was already in store.
A few items caught my eye. This heart print blouse was one of them. I think it's a cute alternative to the J.Crew version. It's from the Essentials line so it was offered in size XS which fit me really well- it wasn't overly wide for once. XS measures 17" across the chest but fits more like 16" across because the button placket comes in an additional inch. Note: measurement taken with the garment laying flat.
Another item I scored was this cute gray and white striped sweater with pretty pointelle details. The smallest size in store was a medium but I'm glad I tried it on because it fits fine. I wore it yesterday, washed it today and I am pleased to say that it washes well. It didn't pill with one wear which is a plus (some items are so shoddy it pills on first wear). Note: I washed it cold cycle and air dry.

Lastly, I found this basic white blazer in size S (also comes in cobalt blue). I was drawn to the the clean lines and I'm partial to white clothing but after critically reviewing a bunch of the pictures I can see that it's a little too big in the chest. If you're more blessed than I am up there then this blazer may be for you. :) Unfortunately, I'll return need to return it the next time I get chance to stop in store.

I hope everyone in the Northeast is safe and warm while we wait for Nemo to blow over. I'm afraid to see the aftermath tomorrow when we all try to dig out.
Also, happy Lunar New Year to everyone that celebrates. My fiance is in Taiwan celebrating with his family and I wish I could have joined them.
Have a great weekend!
