This top caused a lot of controversy at Splendid…everyone who tried it on hated it and loved it at the same time. Hated it because it’s really quite unflattering, and loved it because it was so cozy. When I tried it on, I decided NOT to pair it with slim bottoms, and I think that actually helps the top look more “balanced” ironically. I’m wearing an XS, which as you can see it still rather drape-y, but not too big, which also helps. It’s so cozy, and it takes everything I have not to wear it everyday. The problem with Splendid thermal tops though, is that they do snag easily, I’ve got a couple of snags already, and they don’t look great. I snip the extra threads off, but you’re still left with a little imperfection. Kind of disappointing, but I’m not sure what Splendid can do about it…I just have to be more careful with my jewelry.
If you have a Splendid store nearby, they’re still accepting 5 new or gently used books for donation in exchange for 50% off one item, so get in there!! There’s no limit to how many books you can take in; I took in 30 or so books and left with lots of great pieces for 50% off!! I’m still stunned at what a great deal that was, and was also excited to share my love of reading with a great charity. Contact your store for details – I know it supposed to go on until January 3rd, but each store may be different.
Hope you’re getting ready for the new year!!! Any resolutions you want to share? I’ll go first and tell you want I want NOT to do as much next year: worry so much. I get consumed by worry, which wouldn’t be so bad if it wasn’t over things I can’t do ANYTHING about. I need to do better at letting go of the things I can’t control…Once I’m doing everything I can to “fix” a problem, I need to let go of it and stop worrying so much…
Easier said than done, I’m sure 🙂
