Extended Style Notes

Topshop Pointelle Sweater – Size 4

What I loved...

  • Relaxed fit– I’m always on the hunt for loose-fitting sweaters that are comfortable and easy to throw on, but are not too long.  This one fits the bill because it does not overwhelm my short torso (Center front = 21.25'').
  • Not too tight around the hips - This sweater gives my hips some breathing room! The bottom opening of this sweater fits comfortably around my hips (Seat = 21.5'').
  • Cut outs – I love the tiny circle cutouts on this sweater! Such a cool detail! As a girl who usually does not like to wear sweaters this is a fun one.

What could be better…

  • A little too roomy in the bust – Since this sweater has a relaxed fit, it's a little loose in the bust, but it’s not very noticeable (Chest = 43''). 

 

Garment measurements:

Center front = 21.25''

Center back = 25'' 

Sleeve length = 29'' 

Chest = 43''

Seat = 21.5''

 

LRL Faux Leather Leggings - Size 6 Petite

What I loved…

  • Just the right length -  I'm glad these leggings came in a petite size so they weren't too long and I didn’t have to tuck under the extra fabric. (Inseam = 26.75’’)
  • Leather panels on front -  I like that these leggings were not leather all over because it made me feel more comfortable wearing them. All over leather pants are still a little much for me.

What could be better…

  • Fit -  Overall the fit of these leggings was not my favorite, but I have been looking for faux leather leggings all season at LOFT and Ann Taylor and have had a hard time finding ones that were an exceptional fit. The main reason I bought these leggings from LRL is because they were an amazing deal only $32 (vs orig. $125).
  • Waistband -  I wish the waistband on these leggings was more secure because they have tendency to slide down when you walk.
  • Higher rise -  I wish these leggings were higher rise so the waistband would stay in place around my hips. (Front rise = 8.5’’).

 

Garment measurements:

Inseam = 26.75''

Front rise = 8.5''

Waist = 30.5''
