Not everything I order always works out. It might not fit, the color might be a bit different than I imagined. I always share the things that I keep. The items that help me to be my most confident self. It occurred to me yesterday that I should show you the things that don’t work as well.
Shopping and trying on clothes can be frustrating. I don’t want you or any SometimeSaturday reader to mistakenly think that everything looks amazing on me, and that everything is always perfect. I order and try on a lot of items that are returned or never purchased in the first place.
Here are are the most recent items that fit into the following category:
Not Quite Right
This sweater was just sent back this morning. I ordered it online and decided not to keep it because of two things: fit and price. I ordered a size Medium because I I like my sweaters to be long. The boxy shape in size Medium was not flattering on my frame. I didn’t love it. I’m going to wait to see if it goes on sale and perhaps order a size Small. I did a little research and found it at Nordstrom as well. In a ton of colors. There’s a light pink and champagne shade that I like even more than the gold option I chose. This sweater is so soft. I told a friend it feels like butter. Just in case you’re interested, here’s the link to shop this sweater at Nordstrom : Sanctuary Pullover.
I got this item during the Shopbop fall event. It’s currently sold out. The reason I returned it is because it was too big. I ordered a medium to have room to wear sweaters underneath and it was just too much material. I looked frumpy. I should have ordered a size Small. I haven’t found anything comparable at this time. Of course there are always options I wear only in my dreams like this ALC corduroy jacket.
Red and White Sweater
I returned this sweater because I am looking for more of a bright red. This color could be good for an Alabama game or even an OU game. I was so excited to wear this for Christmas but I don’t think it will be hard to find a red sweater. I have my eye on this one from Club Monaco.
