A Girl Cannot Live in Black Pants Alone


In my never ending quest to have a closet full of wearable, versatile, colorful clothes I went shopping. First stop was the GAP where I tried on the dress above. The print didn’t photograph well with my camera phone but the dress is navy and white with an elasticized top. It has a decorative draw string in the middle of the bust, with wooden beads at the end. It also has pockets!!. Yeah, who doesn’t love a dress with pockets? I’m 5’6 and the dress stops about 2-3inches from my ankle so I wouldn’t consider it a maxi dress, but it does have that easy, breezy maxi feel to it.

Sleeveless Tie-front Shirt

Printed Pocket Top

 The sleeveless orange and tan tie-front shirt, the green printed pocket top and the white pants were all from The Limited.

The pants were a little too thigh and hip spectactular for work. They were also about two inches too short.

 The tie-front top I liked for under a jacket or nice sweater. 

I loved the print on the green top and I actually liked it paired with the white pants for a casual night out. Quality wise the green top seemed a little slight and there were some loose threads around the neck that were a litlle iffy.

I ended up getting the dress from the GAP, the sleeveless orange tie-front blouse and the three shells above which were on sale at The Limited.  Although I liked the green pocket top and the white pants together, the top was $50 and the pants were $70 and since I wasn’t that crazy about them I decided to pass, which just means I’ll wait until they go on sale and buy them then :).
