I just got a shipment yesterday — and none too soon! Sadly, the blogs are no longer going to be paid after today . But I’m gonna try to get this one done in time to make it my last paid blog!
DKNY Knit Tank with Print Trim — Magenta, Small
I wasn’t sure if I should get this or not. I didn’t know if I wanted to spend the money on a relatively plain item…but it wasn’t that much (about 8$ I think) so I went for it. I was also worried about how big the arm holes were going to be — I didn’t want to be showing side boob! Turns out my concerns were all unfounded. It is a really nice top. I was hoping the straps would be wide enough to cover regular bra straps so I wouldn’t have to wear a strapless bra. The straps are wide enough, if you can get them positioned just right and get them to stay there. I think I might end up wearing a strapless bra with it anyway.

Lucky Brand Jeans Khaki Pants — Size 27
This is the first pair of pants that I bought with the jean-type sizing… I figured I was probably a 27 or 28… The first time the pants came around both of those sizes were sold out. Later, I saw they had a size 27 and 30 (I suppose someone may have returned them?) so I snatched up the 27s. The pants seem to fit just right. I wouldn’t want them any smaller — I think they would be too small to get over my hips. I love the pockets on these pants as I’ve always been a big fan of cargo pants. The best part about having these pants now is that I know my TTS. Maybe soon I’ll try to buy some premium jeans!!
Held my shirt up here so you could see the top of the pants...really, not trying to be an exhibitionist
Zensei Long Sleeve Crew Neck Top — Black, Size 2
I love the rhinestone detailing on this shirt…especially the little flower at the bottom of the right sleeve. I’m not a huge fan of the raw edges at the end of the sleeves and bottom of the shirt, but it isn’t that big of a deal. The sleeves are kind of tight — not like cut off my circulation tight…just clingy…I’m not sure I like how it makes my arms look. The material is stretchy, so if you’re ok with it looking clingy on your arms, I wouldn’t pass up on the shirt just because you’re worried about not fitting into the sleeves.
Zensei Strapless Tunic Dress — Black, Size 1
I do like the design of this dress…I think it looks awesome! One think I didn’t realize about the dress from the pictures is that the elastic at the top is raw and you’re expected to fold it over toward the inside. I got the dress and thought…”what is the tag doing on the outside?” Anyway, I agonized over getting this dress because according to the size chart, I thought I needed a size 2 and there was only a size 1 left. Trixiebell finally convinced me that I could fit into a size 1. She was so right! It didn’t feel tight at all. Thanks trixie!!!
