Pleased Thursday, pals! It’s time for an additional Attempt-On Haul! This week it’s all concerning the sweaters, and I’ve received orders from LOFT, Anthropologie, Madewell, and Everlane.
The standard disclaimers apply — I’m 5’5″ with an hourglass form, and I often put on a small in tops, a 6 or eight in pants, and an 8 in clothes.
Fall Attempt Ons: Everlane
Sweater climate isn’t right here in Philly yet, however that didn’t cease me from ordering a bunch from Everlane. I’m a huge fan of Everlane’s high quality and dedication to transparency and moral factories.
They not often run gross sales, but their prices are an excellent worth for the product, and their policy is to be totally transparent about the place their products come from and the price of production. You’ll be able to even “tour” the manufacturing unit the place every product is made.
Everlane The Hyperlink-Sew Crewneck Sweater (measurement small) // I needed to seek out a couple of lighter weight sweaters that I can start sporting now (or as quickly as this summer time reprise is over!) This one is 100% cotton, and the looser weave makes it a nice “yr ’spherical” sweater — depending in your local weather, in fact.
I really like the texture and weight of the fabric, however the crewneck isn’t probably the most flattering on me and it matches type of boxy. It runs TTS, and I’m sporting the Bone. It also is available in Rust and Brass.
VERDICT: Undecided. I really needed an off-white sweater I can begin sporting soon, but I’m unsure if this is it.
additionally sporting: AG Prima skinnies (on sale!) and Sam Edelman Laurna mules
Everlane The Luxe Wool Sq. V-Neck (measurement small) // This sweater is surprisingly lightweight — much thinner than any of the other sweaters I ordered.
I really like the elegant simplicity, and although it has a boxy minimize, the drape is amazingly flattering. My solely grievance is that the v-neck is pretty deep.
Additionally, it solely comes in Black and Navy, so I ordered the Navy, but I have a navy v-neck sweater (from Everlane, in reality!) so I really don’t need this one. I suppose I might re-order in black . . .
VERDICT: Returning as a result of I don’t need a navy v-neck sweater and because the neckline is just too low.
also sporting: Rag & Bone Cate skinnies with Madewell Remi mules
Everlane The Cashmere Outsized V-Neck (measurement small) // This sweater is completely chic, however it’s cashmere so I wouldn’t start sporting it quite as early as the cotton and merino wool.
The v-neck is minimize simply enough larger to offer the modesty I want, and the stitching around the neckline is a very fairly element. It’s tremendous luxe, and the quality is certainly above that of different store-brand cashmeres. I additionally like the way it’s slightly longer than the others I ordered — it’s extra of a standard size, for these in search of that.
This sweater runs TTS, and I’m sporting the Mild Oatmeal. It also comes in Heather Rust and Black.
VERDICT: Returning, as this Oatmeal shade is just a little drab, but the Black could be a superb choice. I have to take stock of my winter sweaters earlier than I make a last choice.
also sporting: Rag & Bone Cate skinnies with Madewell Remi mules
Everlane The Cashmere Rib V-Neck (measurement small) // Another off-white choice, and this one can also be cashmere. In fact, I really like a v-neckline, and this one is narrower than some but nonetheless flattering, although I want it weren’t quite so low-cut. Additionally word the best way it has a slight v-neck in the back as properly — such fairly details.
The rib knit is beautiful, and again, the quality is unbelievable. I like the flared sleeves and the general size. I wish Everlane would offer size measurements, although. I wish to see that number when evaluating sweaters, and I’d like to be able to share it with you too.
It runs TTS, and I’m sporting the Ivory. It also is available in Black and a stunning Pale Blue Heather.
VERDICT: Undecided. I like it, but the worth is on the upper end of my finances, so I will need to make some decisions.
additionally sporting: Rag & Bone Cate skinnies with Madewell Remi mules
Everlane The Texture Cotton V-Neck (measurement small) // Now this one is a keeper, for positive!
It’s a cotton/nylon blend, and I just like the chunky knit. The v-neck is the right minimize, it additionally has the smaller v-neck element within the again, and knit particulars on sleeves and across the cut up hem are really enjoyable.
This sweater also comes in Bone as well as Black, Atlantic Blue, Surplus, and Dark Navy; but I ordered the Crimson as a result of I feel it’s such a reasonably shade for fall. It runs TTS; I’m sporting the small.
additionally sporting: Good American Good Legs high waist skinnies (sale choice) with Steve Madden mules (on sale at Dillard’s)
Fall Attempt Ons: Anthropologie
I’ve had a couple of requests to do some attempt ons from Anthropologie, so I ordered some issues to attempt. You guessed it . . . extra sweaters!
Anthro is a store I are likely to overlook about — I assume I consider it as having more of a boho vibe, but they really carry quite a lot of types, and the standard of their products is usually excellent.
Michael Stars Tie-Dyed Pullover (measurement small) // That is extra of a summer time sweater, for my part . . . which is probably why it’s on sale and selling out. It additionally runs reeeeeeeally small. I ordered the medium, because of the evaluations, however I’d favor a big.
That stated, it’s lovely, and the material is lightweight, smooth, and luxe. This sweater puts stylish in tie-dye.
VERDICT: Returning, because it’s too small they usually’re bought out of the larger sizes.
also sporting: AG legging ankle jeans with comparable espadrilles
And with a front-tuck . . .
Anthropologie Ethan Camo Sweater (measurement small) // That is another beautiful sweater, though the print is sort of memorable, which cuts down on the potential alternatives to wear it and will increase cost-per-wear.
It matches true to measurement or perhaps a bit giant; I discovered the small to be quite roomy. When you have an edgy vibe and respect a top quality sweater, chances are you’ll like this one!
VERDICT: Undecided. I need to attempt it with some lighter denims and assume it over.
additionally sporting: AG legging ankle denims with comparable espadrilles
T.La Vicky Thermal Waffle Tunic in Ivory (measurement small) // I tried this waffle tunic on a gazillion alternative ways, and it’s odd, however the ivory matches smaller than the terra cotta (under). I tried it both untucked and front-tucked with these pale black skinny jeans and spotted mules. I feel I prefer it greatest untucked with that outfit.
additionally sporting: AG legging ankle denims with Madewell Remi mules
Then I attempted the terra cotta on with crop flares . . .
T.La Vicky Thermal Waffle Tunic in Terra Cotta (measurement small) // I feel this colour is admittedly fun for fall, and I just like the thermal as an alternative choice to the sweaters I sometimes put on.
VERDICT: Preserving the terra cotta.
additionally sporting: BlankNYC Varick kick flares with Steve Madden mules (on sale at Dillard’s)
Anthropologie Fake Suede Leggings (measurement 29) // These match actually weird. They’re massive within the waist and hips, tight within the thighs, and unfastened again within the calf.
I truly like that they don’t match comfortable all the best way to the ankle, however they’re not very snug the best way they’re too massive within the hip space. Very strange, as I have vast hips so nothing is ever unfastened there on me!
VERDICT: Returning; I like the thought of those, however the match is off.
also sporting: T.La Vicky Thermal Waffle Tunic with Madewell Remi mules
Fall Attempt Ons: LOFT
In fact LOFT is all the time coming out with new types, and I’m a sucker for his or her sales.
LOFT Textured Knit Moto Jacket (measurement small) // This jacket is a fun twist on a leather-based or suede moto. The textured knit has virtually a wool look to it, nevertheless it’s a poly/rayon mix.It runs a bit massive; I’m the small here over a tank and it’s just a little roomy. I wouldn’t measurement down, although.
VERDICT: Undecided. I have to play around with this a bit.
also sporting: Body Le Skinny Chew Hem Ankle Denims with Splendid Hailee II snake embossed mules (verrry snug and walkable)
LOFT Colorblock Open Poncho Sweater (measurement XS/S) // I’m loving these open ponchos with the dolman cap sleeves, as they’re calling them.
Opinions have been combined once I shared these with my Facebook Group, however the common consensus was constructive.
While they’re voluminous, I don’t assume they add visual weight in the same approach a standard closed poncho can, they usually’re enjoyable to throw on over a tank or tee to add one other factor of curiosity. I will even put on this over a long-sleeved tee when it gets colder.
VERDICT: Retaining! Tremendous cute, and a fun addition to my fall wardrobe.
additionally sporting: Frame Le Skinny Chew Hem Ankle Denims with Vince Camuto Gigietta booties
LOFT Open Poncho Sweater (measurement XS/S) // Another open poncho, this in a extra fallish colour. This one is a thicker material too and has a cozier vibe.
VERDICT: I in all probability don’t need both however I can’t determine between them, so… I’ll hold the tags on both and see which one I find yourself sporting before my 30-day return interval is up. I will in all probability end up returning one in every of them, however I like them each equally.
additionally sporting: Body Le Skinny Chew Hem Ankle Jeans with Splendid Hailee II snake embossed mules (verrry snug and walkable)
LOFT Speckled Shirttail Sweater (measurement small) // This can be a fairly sweater, however it runs very small. I might need to measurement up.
VERDICT: Returning because it’s too small and I don’t love the shirttail hemline.
Additionally, my Tortoiseshell Print Hair Cuff is from LOFT, and it’s a pleasant method to gown up a primary ponytail.
also sporting: Body Le Skinny Chew Hem Ankle Jeans with Taryn Rose Faye loafers (more colors)
Fall Attempt Ons: Madewell
Annnnnnd lastly, a Madewell order! I’m all the time a fan of their fall/winter sweaters, they usually even have good denim, footwear, and luggage.
They have been having their Insider’s sale, which I took benefit of. Unfortunately that’s over, however they may in all probability run another sale for Columbus Day (mid-October), if not earlier than.
Madewell Kent Striped Cardigan (measurement small) // Up to now, I’ve sized right down to an XS on this cardigan, but I type of like this one in the small, I feel. It’s cozy and good quality, and the color blocking is fun.
also sporting: Ann Taylor combined jersey tank with Good American Good Legs excessive waist skinnies (sale choice) and Sam Edelman Laurna mules
Madewell Marchmont V-Neck Pullover Sweater (measurement small) // Why so skinny? Why so brief? It’s too dangerous as a result of the reduce of the double v-neck is so flattering.
I’ll attempt the medium the subsequent time they run a sale, however in the intervening time, this one is going again.
VERDICT: Returning; too small and brief.
also sporting: Good American Good Legs high waist skinnies (sale choice) with Steve Madden mules (on sale at Dillard’s)
Madewell Cashmere Sweatshirt (measurement small) // So this one is fascinating . . . to start with, it’s cashmere, so obviously it feels superb on.
I like the waffle texture and the sweatshirt detailing, it’s a nice luxe/informal vibe. However it’s sort of fitted, and virtually has a banded waist. I assume I have to attempt the medium.
VERDICT: Returning; might attempt medium when it goes on sale once more.
additionally sporting: AG legging ankle denims with Vince Milo loafers in Pewter (and man, oh, man, these are so cozy! I forgot how a lot I beloved these.)
Madewell Arden V-Neck Pullover Sweater (measurement small) // Yep, another ivory sweater! I had excessive hopes for this one, nevertheless it’s a no for me — primarily because the feel is tough and under no circumstances pleasant towards the skin. But I also don’t like the way it hangs in the front.
also sporting: AG legging ankle denims with Madewell Remi mules
Madewell Marled Watermoor Brief-Sleeve Sweater (measurement small) // I really like the textured material, the flattering rolled scoopneck, and the minimize of the brief sleeves; but this sweater is about an inch too brief for my consolation degree. I do know it’s purported to be cropped, however I’m unsure I like that.
It’s too dangerous, otherwise it’s an amazing little prime for sporting proper now when the weather is heat, but you need to give a nod to fall.
P.S. This sweater is on sale.
VERDICT: Returning… I assume? I dunno… can’t determine. Does it look too brief? Ought to I attempt the medium?
also sporting: AG legging ankle jeans with Steve Madden mules (on sale at Dillard’s)
Madewell The Abroad Tote Bag // I assumed this is perhaps a superb choice for some of you — I typically get requests for a great leather-based tote. I had a request to match it to my Everlane Day Market Tote, so I took some mod photographs of both.
Principally, my ideas are these: The Madewell tote is obviously a bit smaller, and it has a prime zip. It’s also made from softer leather than the Everlane tote, which could be very stiff and never really softens up.
I see the Everlane as more of a carryall/work tote, and the Madewell as extra of a roomy everyday purse. Each are nice luggage, it simply is dependent upon what you need.
additionally sporting: Mother Looker ankle fray skinnies with previous UGG loafers
Odds & Ends
And eventually, a couple of random odds and ends I ordered . . .
Je Ne Sais Quoi Tee (measurement small) // This is cute but the materials is soooo skinny. It’s also a bit comfortable. And in addition? I don’t know why I ordered a $98 graphic tee… I imply, I know I spend quite a bit on some issues, but this isn’t value it to me.
Less Mondays More Sundays Graphic Tee (measurement small) // This tee is absolutely delicate and skinny, and I feel it’s cute. I just like the neckline too, nevertheless it matches a bit comfortable, and it’s brief. It’s more the length that bothers me than general fit, but I would like it to be cozy, and in addition be capable of throw it in the wash, so I ordered the medium.
VERDICT: Returning; ordered the medium as an alternative.
I also ordered this Indoorsy graphic tee — which is so me. I hope I just like the fit.
BlankNYC The Varick Kick Flares (measurement 28) // I’m wishy-washy on these. For this type of jean, I feel these are fairly good. They match comfortable within the thigh, bell out from the knee, and the 25″ inseam is perfect on me.
But those rear pockets are tiny and a bit out of proportion, they usually’re actually comfortable in the waist. I hear they stretch out, so I don’t dare measurement up, since they match nicely all over the place else. I assume I just have to wear them around a bit and see in the event that they loosen up.
VERDICT: Undecided; making an attempt to love this development, however I really favor my skinnies.
