A couple of weeks ago, NY&Co had a 50% off promotion on their website... and on my way out the door, I thought, you know, they have some cute maxi dresses that I totally need. And thus I was off to the races in a bad way.
I spent way too much money, but fortunately, or unfortunately, the maxis were a big fat bust. None of them fit whatsoever.
The one on the left probably fit the best, but it was the shortest. I was most excited for the red one, but it was strangely small. And the one on the right was so jacked up.... I have no comment.
Fortunately, I didn't just order the maxi dresses. I also snapped up this chevron maxi skirt. Now, on twitter, I got several comments saying it was granny-ish and blah and whatever...
Last but not least... I was really, truly obsessed with the poppy red print. And was nervous the dress wouldn't fit (shopper's intuition!). So I grabbed this top. Does the arm slit make me look like a NJ/OC housewife? Cause that is my fear.
Next up... I had a Forever21 moment. It just needed to happen. They had these red skinny ponte pants and I couldn't find red skinny jeans ANYWHERE. So it had to happen.
Unfortunately... you may be blinded by these next pictures. It's just.... a whole lot of junk in my trunk. And not in a particularly flattering way. But I'd be remiss if I didn't show you.
Signed, sealed, delivered, I'm yours.
Goodness knows I'd never wear a strapless dress just... naked. I'd wear it with a jacket and 22 other layers, which will totally ruin the effect. But... it's really pretty.
And then there's the Striped Knit Dress. I love the colors, love the pockets (which were a welcome, surprise bonus feature).
So, help me out..
Yes or no on the poppy top with the arm slits? Sexy? Wrong on so many levels?
Red skinnies? Would you point and laugh if you saw me at the mall? Do I look like the lady who I caught wearing leggings as too-small-pants?
Comments from the peanut gallery?
Where are YOU shopping lately? I dunno what it is about spring, but suddenly I need need need EVERYTHING.
