Oy, been a long week so far. And it’s only Tuesday! I feel exhausted! But have no fear, I have enough energy today to post. Loft has brought up their Buy 1 Get 1 50% off promo, but only with sweaters. In honor of this promotion, let’s talk about a classic with a twist. V-Neck Sweater with Button Detail.
I bypassed this one quite a few times initially. Then it hit me at some point that these classic v-neck sweaters can (and should) replace my basic v-neck tees that I wear with everything during the summer. So I clicked and took a quick look. I was very surprised to see a row of gold/brass buttons on each sleeve! You all know how much I love gold hardware detailing, and it’s so rare to see on anything but jackets/coats, and even then it’s still rare! So, I bought them with the last Buy 1 Get 1 50% off promo.
At first I really liked them on. But then I noticed they were a bit tight in the shoulder/bust/arm area…again. Sigh. Of course I got a Small and they would probably look better a size up. Not so I’m-almost-busting-out-ish. It’s probably not that noticeable from the front, but it definitely is from the side. You can see the outline of my bra. Gah.
I would definitely buy this in a size up if I were to rebuy them again. They’re machine washable, which is awesome, and they’re super comfortable. Love the button detailing. Gives it that slight twist on a classic. And super reasonably priced!
Get it here from Ann Taylor Loft for $39.50. Comes in a ton of colors and even stripes!
