Once again, a few Ann Taylor goodies for your reviewing enjoyment…
First up, the Pearl and Bead Tank in size XXSP:
This top is really cute, and if not for the following problem, I would have kept it:
You can see the flappy things in the first photo too. I’m not sure if it’s because the armholes are too low, or because the beading is so heavy that it weights the front of the top down. Either way, those little flappy things really bugged me, and showed my bra from the sides.
More after the jump.
In case you’re wondering, the shoes I’m wearing above are also Ann Taylor, specifically the Perfect Kitten Peeptoe Slingback in size 5. Petite Asian Girl warned me that they run a little big, but surprisingly these fit pretty well. I’d like to see them a little narrower, but the slingback strap stays on my heel nice and snug. I like the idea of nude pumps, and wanted to keep these, but every time I take a step, the patent leather makes an awful creaking noise that just won’t do. The search for nude pumps continues!
Next, the Cotton Ruffle Scoopneck Sheath in size 00P:
This dress has potential to be really cute…on someone else. Once again, the arm holes are a tad too big, and the neckline is too low. You can also see the seam at the waist could stand to move up a little bit too. This is easily fixed by just having the shoulder straps taken up. But then…
Look at all that extra fabric! This dress has a side zipper, which makes that alteration expensive.
Verdict: Return. This has potential to look really cute after alterations, but I’m just not loving the dress enough to invest in it. If you’re a size or two bigger than me, do try this dress on! Hopefully it will fit you right off the rack.
