I haven't been to BR in quite some time but in the last week I ended up there twice. First thing I noticed was the Sequin Sweatshirt in XS and grey heather. The funniest thing happened next. I overheard a woman telling someone "this is a dead ringer for the one we saw in J. Crew last year." I turned around grinning ear to ear, and noticed the woman is a very well-known TV personality. That's the second time I am bumping into this lady. On another occasion she came to my workplace to interview a previous boss.
The sweatshirt fit well, but for an XS, the arms were tight on me. The pants are the Linen blend boyfriend pants in size 2. They fit very comfortably and the fabric is extremely soft. However, they are a bit transparent, as you can see from the photos below:
And below is the same sweatshirt in the cocoon colour. The skirt is the Textured pencil skirt in size 2. This skirt is similar to the Stretch textured pencil skirt I got last year (minus the pockets) and the fit is identical.

Next I tried on the Stevia lace-trim sweatshirt in English rose. The other two colours it comes in are coast guard blue and gray heather. The fabric is soft (a mix of Modal/cotton). I liked the lace around the neckline, but didn't care a lot for the raw edges on the sleeve cuffs and the hem.Stevia Lace-trim Sweatshirt (how about lace on the back here?)
And lastly (at least for now), here's the Ruffle tie-waist sweater jacket in gray. I loved that the fabric was 100% cotton, and that it wasn't overly thick.This is a size XS, but I would probably size up to an S if I wore long sleeves underneath, like I was doing here:
I have a few other pics, but for my next post.
Have you been to BR lately? What did you think?
Have a great rest of the week, everyone!
