This past week when *hot* finally showed its face, I realized my wardrobe was lacking in HOT weather clothes. I can still do sleeves and cardigans at the office cuz we have arctic ac, but to go to Beach Hut with friends in the evening for a drink and some music…I had nothing. And since I was at Target doing the weekly stock-up on tampons and kitty litter…no one had to twist my arm to get me into the fitting room with a couple things to try on.
#1. Really cute army green lightweight rayon dress by Ava & Viv $29.99, size 4x. I wasn’t even minding the VBL (Visible Belly Line). But the pockets (and who doesn’t love pockets?!) were very…protruding. Can’t think of a better word. I should have taken a pic with my hand NOT in the pocket so you could see how obtrusive the pocket bump was.
#2 Black Sleeveless Popover with Pockets by Ava & Viv, $19.99, size 3x. Very flattering, have several bottoms I could wear this with. It has the same “sleeveless” issue I always have – too big an arm hole and my bra and side show. It’s the Bra Sideshow! Ha 🙂
#3. Mauve/rose Ava & Viv tee shirt, CLEARANCE FOR $5.99 (I NEVER find the things on clearance at Target! I was so excited!), 3x. This was ginormous. I think the size was mislabeled. It would have been big for a FOUR-EX. Would be good over leggings or jeans for weekends or evenings out with the dog or to watch a sunset.
#4. Black and white striped tee by Mossimo, $16.99, 3x. This was nice and drapey but with a slightly more flattering fit than the mauve/rose top. I’ve been on a stripe kick for two years now and it shows no sign of abating.
Okay. I got two of the four items I tried on. Do you know which I bought??
