Hi all! Piling on to the NAS fray with my set of K/R's. I bought these when the pre-sale started but didn't get a chance to take pics till now. I also haven't had a chance to peruse Angie's lists yet but am hoping to read them later tonight!
I have to say I'm not super thrilled with these now that I've tried them on. The only one I love and am keeping for sure is the Zella turquoise jacket and black yoga pants. On the fence about the black and white striped dress (I think it looks better than the red/navy) and the red leggings, but I'm not so sure about the grey sweater and the two capes--I feel like they're kind of swallowing me up. What do you think of these items on me--anything worth keeping?
1-5. Halogen Toggle Closure Topper in Grey (one size fits all):
and Hue red denim leggings:
I am not sure about the sweater. These M red leggings are a bit snug at the waist, but the size L was too big in the crotch.
Oh and I couldn't resist copying the silly model pose (4-5)! :)
6-10. French Connection 'Dani' Stripe Side Panel Sheath Dress in black/white (6-8) and red/navy (9-10) in size 8:
This is a very snug body-con dress so I had to size up to an 8. Even so, I think it's a bit of a hard style for apples to wear. Sorry for the bad lighting--I think it looks worse in the pics because the overhead lighting in the bathroom closet here creates a lot of shadows around the tummy that you wouldn't necessarily see in real life. Regardless, what do you think? I think for some reason the black/white looks more slimming than the red/navy. Plus I think I can also wear it with the red leggings in 8--does that look OK? On the other hand, if you think this dress makes me look horribly fat, let me know. I can handle it! ;)
11-13. Betsey Johnson Bell Sleeve Capelet in Orange, size S:
Maybe I should have sized down to an XS--I kind of feel like a whale in this. Also the buttons/toggles are kind of difficult to open and close easily. The closure is a bit fussy. Not sure if I really need this because I already have a rust orange wool peacoat. If you really like it, I might try an XS.
14-15. Via Spiga Ombre Plaid cape size S/M:
Huh, I'm not sure about this one either. It also feels a little large on me, and there are a lot of snaps to close it up which is also kind of fussy. And the "sleeves" are not real sleeves...I feel like a bat when I raise my arms!
17-20. Zella ruched turquoise jacket size S:
(Here's the link for the black version but I can't find the turquoise--maybe it's sold out?)
Zella Booty Reversible Pants size 8:
These are my faves of the bunch and the only ones I'm keeping for sure. So comfy--gear that still looks stylish enough to wear out & about in a pinch. Definitely fills a loungewear wardrobe hole for me! The pants say "reversible" but the inside is black too, so I'm not sure what the point of that is.
Thanks for wading through yet another YLF NAS K/R!
