This is such a cute look, I thought the tie top in navy tweed
a fun and different way to be part of a suit.
So I eagerly hunted down my size of the top via WWFIFY and got the café capri in navy tweed when it went on sale with an extra % off.
Ummm ... maybe not.
Gigi reviewed the top, and while I didn't mind
the ribbon not being silk, I agree I didn't get the feeling.
I like the tinsel factor, I like the colors of the tweed,
see close up here:
But I didn't get how it's a "classic" (I should know better than to argue with
the copywriter from space, I know). And there's something oxymoronic about
a top described as "tailored" and also having a "loose fit."
I kept thinking, "glamorous potato sack."
As for the café capri, the jury's still out.
For a "lightweight tweed," they feel heavy and they look heavy.
I'm going to "pair it with its matching jacket" later this week
to see if that "ladylike spin" is its final spin with me.
