So my order that I placed on Thursday at 6:30am is still in lulu limbo and processing even though I paid by gift card and now all sizes are sold out on the website. I decided to head out to my local lulu to see if I could snag one just in case my order gets cancelled and thankfully they did have them in for me to try on. I’m a bit on the fence with this one. I really like it in a lot of the photos I’ve seen, and I love the cozy factor of this but one thing about the fit is bugging me. The neckline, it’s huge and narrow and really bulky so it doesn’t sit properly on my neck. It sits like this all bunched up or it gets folded down and looks odd. I think what would have made the neckline a prettier cowl neck would have been a much wider neck opening, less bulk in the fabric and maybe less height. Or maybe even if it tapered to a wider base it would have sat better. I really love slouchy cowl necks so it’s not that I have a problem with the idea of the design, it just doesn’t work on me. The fit overall is TTS for a slouchy look. I went with the 10 and although I could have done the 8 it would have hugged me in certain areas and lost the cozy slouchyness which I think this sweater needs. So what to do? Keep a sweater that I’ll love using while at home watching a movie..maybe to and from Crossfit but probably not worn casually otherwise. I think if this came in some other colors like Pink or Persian Purple I’d be more inclined towards keeping it but neutrals don’t really sway me unless the fit and design is totally spot on.
