Circadian SS – Cranberry.
Well I have to agree with Lulumum on this tee – it is awesome! I got a size 6 which is my normal size for most SS and LS, though I do wear a 4 in CRBs and Swiftly tanks. For me the fit is perfect – fitted without being too snug. It is super soft and a very nice length that I think will suit a good range of heights (I’m 5’6″). I like this tee so much I’m going back to get a black one as well. The perfect basic!
Find Your Mantra Henley – Bordeaux Drama
This is a beautiful top, but I’m not currently sold on the fit of it. I got a size 6, which again is my size for long and short sleeve swiftlies. And although I like the look from the front, the sleeves are QUITE long and it just feels overall a bit too big. I feel like it looks like that on some of the models, as well. And I wonder if this fabric will relax a bit with time and wear – my hunch is it will, which will make it feel even bigger. So I think I’m going to try a size 4 for comparison and go from there. The fabric feels luxe – this is something you could wear to work or dress down with leggings.
Define Jackets in Cyber Stripe Gator Green and Heathered Herringbone Heathered Black
Got these both in a size 6 which is my TTS for jackets (I size down to a 4 in On the Daily hoodies and Miss Misty jackets) – whenever I size up to an 8 in this style, I tend to get gaping across the back so I stick with a 6. The Cyber Stripe Gator Green feels a smidge looser than the herringbone, but negligibly. I have to say, I am swooning over this herringbone jacket – I just think it’s a stunner. Classic, sharp…it’s my favorite of the jackets I got today. But, I love the color of the gator green – nice for brunettes.
Bhakti Yoga Jacket – luon pique black dark slate black
This is my first Bhakti jacket! I ordered the fatigue green but it hasn’t arrived yet. I like it – it’s cozy, not nearly as snug or fitted as the define jackets. Not tight at all around the waistband so if you have wider hips there’s plenty of room. In some of the photos I’d seen previously, it looked like the fit was off, particularly in the back shoulder area. I did not seem to have this problem. I got a size 6 and had plenty of room – I wonder if sizing down causes more of the pulling evident in some pics. I could see this fabric being susceptible to that, so just make sure not to get it too fitted.
I’m still debating on the jackets, and as I said I’m still waiting on the fatigue green Bhakti as well. So if you have a vote for your favorite(s), I’ll take all the help I can get! Let me know if you have any questions!
