When i first saw this ensemble at The Limited, I thought it was a dress. They had tucked in the top on the model, and added a belt to it. I saw the striped pattern, and started to hyperventilate, but then i thought about how dresses could be so complicated at times, and decided I would just pass on this one. And then, I figured the pieces were separate. I would have done the happy dance if I had been by myself at the store!!! In case you haven’t noticed, i am not the same size on top and bottom so separates tend to work better for me. Tried it on, checked out, and no remorse ever since. Casual enough to run errands on the weekend, versatile enough to just be topped with a blazer for a work outfit, top can be worn with jeans, skirt can be worm with a tee and a cardigan, and it goes on… Stay tuned to find out how I mix and match these pieces with other garments to create fab outfits!!!
