As soon as I got home from Florida yesterday, I unpacked all those boxes for slowre, and then, tried on the Elizabeth Suzann Rhodes sweater I ordered last week (if only all ES pieces shipped so fast!!).
It is stunning, beautiful, fits well, and is a truly great piece IF a cropped, slim cut, mockneck wool sweater is something you’d wear often. In my head, this is something I would throw on with everything, but in practice, I know I wouldn’t. It’s not very easy to layer over a tee or tank, which is something I’d like to do. And it is actually cropped – in a good way – but if you’re going to wear it alone, you’d have to wear it with really high-waisted pants/skirt.
I really love it, but since I don’t have have endless amounts of $$, and I’d rather have something else from Elizabeth Suzann, I’m sending it back.
I’ve wanted the Georgia dress since last summer (in fact, I wish I’d had it to wear last night to dinner – a nice, not-so-casual, but still easy summer dress with sleeves), so I think I’ll order that with my return credit. Now, the only question is: linen or raw silk?? Black of course 😉
