The ruffles just don’t look ruffle-y and kind of sit there covering up my chest, rather than ruffle around the very flattering v-shape neckline of the Palmera. The button down style of this cami also gives off this weird peasantish vibe to me, which was not the dressy feel I was going over.
For some reason, I think it only works somewhat when it’s tucked into something. Otherwise when I wear it I almost feel like one of those old grannies sitting in her bloomers on a stool on the street, chomping away at watermelons. Hmm, perhaps a faded memory of my childhood there. I sized up in the printed version simply because they didn’t have it in my usual size, but turns out the Navy version I did get in my usual size was way too small for the girls…and I looked totally ridiculous.
Do you see the weird gaping hole on my chest? Yes, it’s because the buttons barely closed over the girls, then because the top part would have no chance in hell of closing, it decided to flare out…then meet up again at the top. Don’t ask – I have no idea what’s going on with this. Not keepers.
