So I got there and couldn't find a damn single pair to try on. No J Brand, no Citizens, no Joes. It was like they knew I was coming and hid them all from me. I did find a pair by a brand I'd never heard of but they weren't quite skinny and yes, they looked like deep-fried ass on me:
The top I have on in the second photo is the Chiminu Kata Tank which was very pretty and also very huge, so I had to size down to a 2. Seriously, that's the 2. It's on sale right now for a great price, but it was not for me, so I passed.
Next I tried on the Echoing Dress (on sale but not on the website anymore. Effortless Anthropologie reviewed it here) and oh my baby Jesus, no. It's a disaster. It's true name is the Droopy Sack Dress because NO:
To recover from the trauma I tried on the Dreamy Drape Dress (sadly, not on sale) in the pattern version and wow, this is a beautiful thing:
It felt really good on and I might cave and buy it if it ever goes on sale. My only hesitation is that maybe it's too dressy for work. But, so comfy! So pretty!
Finally, I found a pair of black James Jean Twiggy
Worn here with the Unveiled Tank which is a fantastic shade of grey but too weirdly lumpy for me to really know what to do with it.
So yeah, I just bought the jeans because apparently I needed another pair of skinny jeans. So dumb.
