Isn't it so cute?!?!?!
And now, here is the part of this blog post where I will talk about my latest GRIPES that I've had with my recent clothing hauls.
THis semi-rant may or may not interest you, so you don't have to read it :P
These are the tops I ordered from Papayaclothing.com. I bought one Papaya tubetop from Everblue on Oahu and I really LOVED it. So I decided to buy more tops from that brand since I liked the style and quality. So I chose these 3. I think I've been buying clothes long enough to know that my size is small and only occasionally medium and rarely ever extra small anymore. But these tops are so awkwardly sized that I was really disappointed. They are all size small and looked absolutely great on the website and they are just the styles I like.
However, when I got them in and tried them on, it was a whole different story. They DO fit, just not comfortably :/ I pretty much conclude that THESE shirts, atleast, have been made for girls who:
1. Have NO "chest area",
2. Have extremely tiny ribcages, and
3. Have very wide hips.
I drew arrows so you can see what I'm talking about.
The bust area is really too tight to be very comfortable for anyone over an A cup. The top torso area is also rather tight and snug and doesn't stretch very well. And the bottom torso area is actually pretty wide and stretchy; seems like it could be a medium size :S Pretty much the only part of these tops that fit me comfortably is the waist, which is just the right fit, stretches just enough but is snug enough and doesn't prevent me from breathing. So overall, I was pretty disappointed. Again, these tops DO fit me and would fit a small/XS, but the dimensions aren't exactly on-point so it isn't the most comfy fit :(
Anyways, my order from F21 was mainly for their pants. I liked their Petite skinny jean so I ordered another pair except a 26 instead of 27 and they fit a lot better but a little snug at the waist... good motivation since I want to start losing weight anyway xP I also got their Alicia skinny jean in 26 but it feels more like a 27... it's longer and a bit baggier than the petite skinny jeans but still fits well. I was satisified with these.
L-R: Petite skinny jean, Alicia skinny jean. Those are pretty much my fav shoes (Nine West) that I never ever wear :P Yes, the are unbuckled lol.
Anyways, for the rest of my F21 haul, it was 2 of their fab convertible bras and a nailpolish (will review later). So as for the bras, you'll know in one of my recent posts that the first one I got was way too small for me (I usually go from 34B-32C) so I returned it and tried again. I got one white 32C and one black 36B.
Now here is the confusing part. I really wanted the white bra and I figured one cup size up; can't go wrong. Right? Wrong. Turns out, the black 36B is BIGGER than the white 32C. WTH??? The 32C doesn't feel very much more comfortable than the 34B I first tried... uh? Is there a difference between the white and black sizes or something? :/ KC said that F21's sizes run a little small... and this is definitely one of those experiences for me :( Both are still more snug than I'd like, but I'm too exasperated to return and try again, since now the only black ones that are left are too small and I've tried 2/3 of the white sizes and don't want to have to return another one. UGH!
