Okay ladies, I need your help. I’m torn on this top, and I need outside opinions to help me decide if I should keep it.
I usually stick to basics when it comes to H&M (their basic t-shirts and tanks are great!), but I saw this top and just couldn’t make up my mind about it. I liked this top for two reasons. It has a really interesting roll neck detail that I thought might be a nice sophisticated touch to an outfit, and it’s 100% silk.
So, here’s my dilemma. The top in size 2 (the smallest size at H&M) is still too big! And I just don’t want to invest the money in this cheap top to alter it. H&M silks are not the best quality, and because I only paid $30 for it, I don’t want to add another $25 to the cost of this top with alterations.
When worn by itself, the top is obviously too big. If I were to keep it, I couldn’t wear it by itself.
But…when I put a sweater over it, it looks kinda cute.
Top: H&M, size 2
Jeans: Paige Laurel Canyon in McKinley, size 24 (hemmed & waist taken in)
Sweater: Line Cashmere/Wool Lace Panel Cardigan, size XS
So…do I keep this $30 silk top, when I can only wear it under a sweater? Is it even cute enough to justify keeping? Or should I return it and use my $30 on something better? Help!
