Earlier this week I had posted about a black leather vest from Danier that I had been crushing on. Sorry I can't link to the post - on my phone.
I went tonight and tried it on to get it out of my system. It's a gorgeous vest with that great Danier quality and the gold hardware is classy. But it is not cut for gals with narrow shoulders and who are petite. The underarms are much too deep and the shoulders were wide to the point that the fabric went past my shoulder and I looked like I was wearing epaulettes. So I walked away.
On a whim I popped into BCBG to see if they had that lovely drapey blush/black/white blouse Angie had shown us earlier in the season. I normally don't even look in BCBG because their clothes are not made for petites or women with a larger midsection. But I thought what the heck - I'm already out and about. They had the blouse and it's even prettier in real life and has such wonderful movement. I tried the large and the medium and actually the medium was perfect. The blouse is cut generously. As Angie had mentioned, it can be worn untucked in all its glory or tucked. It was 50% off and I bought it. It is not a need and a total "love" purchase. And I couldn't be more pleased. And DH thinks it's beautiful.
Already in my pj's so no pics on but you'll see it in action next week.
