Today I'll post my Nordstrom Sale reviews, and later I'll post what I found from the other stores.
For reference, I'm 5'6", usually 6 or S/M on top with a short torso, and 6/8 on bottom.
Also, Nordstrom has FREE shipping BOTH WAYS with no minimum purchase. If you don't live near a Nordstrom you can still easily return items for FREE via mail.
Navy Pink Flower Woven Print Top (Small Petite) - Comes in 20 colors (!!!) but I loved this one the most. I tried SP, MP, and M. The regular fit was too long for me, and MP had a tad too much fabric. It could have worked as it's looser and more comfortable, but once I tried it tucked into a skirt the excess fabric was very apparent.
Overall it hangs on your body really nicely, and even if you were to size up it would still drape pretty nicely. Highly, highly recommended!
Comparing the two side views, I love how the Nordstrom top falls. I'll have to wear the Nordstrom one around the house and see how badly it wrinkles.
There is also another Nordstrom one on sale HERE that I have heard is also very soft.
Since the front is rayon, it wrinkles quite easily. I *just* ironed these shirts before snapping pics, I laid them on the bed, but then...look at all those wrinkles. Ugh! They're more noticeable on the white one, so that is definitely getting returned. I just love the purple one though! I'll wear it around the house some more and see how the wrinkling goes before deciding.
Last note--I didn't really like the top in SP as the proportions looked odd because it was sort of fitted, but way too long. Once I tried the MP with a looser fit all around, it was able to drape nicely and was actually more flattering.
Instead, I'm going to try this other roll tab sleeve tunic in white. It's longer, so I'm not sure how that will go. But it is polyester, not rayon, and it's cheaper!
THIS ONE is very similar, and while not on sale it's a decent price.
Not digging what's happening in the crotch area either. I tend to have that problem because of how my scoliosis affects my hips and pelvis, but some jeans make it worse than others, and these jeans aren't helping. There is lots of extra material around the crotch, so it's bunching up. However, these jeans might be great for you if you need extra room in the front.
We'll see if the sizing down works for me. The smaller size is sold out in grey, so I'll try the regular blue pair since I loved the material so much.
Two items that I'm not showing are the Lucky Brand Boot and Joe's Jeans. I took one look at the boots and saw they were darker brown than I wanted--not tan as it appears on my computer screen. It was so hot in my house I didn't bother trying them on. The Joe's Jeans didn't fit in 28, so I will reorder and try again. Not sure I love the material, though. It seems thin and not stretchy, so I'll try the Paige Denim as well. #jeanshoppingsucks
