You all were SO sweet with my last post. I still haven't gotten around to doing the review of the Floral Swing Skirt, but I anticipate being able to do a bit more on it fairly soon.
In case you are wondering, I *do* plan on being more inventive with my photos. That doesn't mean an arty-farty party every day, but I will at least try to get a few "fun" photos a week. I definitely can't guarantee they are true, original B & T photos, but my hubby/tripod does just fine in a pinch. LOL.
Up today is a review of the paisley bermuda shorts. I grabbed them on the last promo (shorts/flip-flops at 20% off), and along with the 20% off cardholder code that I received, I believe I bought the shorts for around 35% off (woo!).
Masonic Temple in the background, which is a pretty darn cool structure from the early 20th-century built to honor our dear first president and beloved son of Alexandria, George Washington. It also makes a wicked background drop. ;)
The night was a movie and dinner, and yes, we saw Bridesmaids. I love the fact that Kristin Wiig was a protagonist that we all felt for but also sort of understood how she got what she deserved. How great is it to have a comedic movie where the characters are developed so fully? (Yes, I am the literary nerd who prefers great characters to great plot.)
The shorts are a size 8, and fit great upon purchase. I always, ALWAYS err on the bigger of my two sizes with J. Crew. I have been stung by buying too small from them, and it bugs to have to return and re-buy. The 8, at the end of the night, was a touch big (it stretches out a wee bit), but overall, I prefer the shorts be like this.
Cutler and Gross sunglasses. I still wear my A.R. Trapp Sunglasses ALL. THE. TIME., but it is nice to give them a day off here and there.
The Crystal Track necklace lays flat, but looks like it is a bunch of bejeweled barbells strung on a wire. It is some sort of optical illusion, because even in the above pic it looks like the necklace is not laying flat. Huh.
You all have a great night. Hope to get another J. Crew review/ootd in tomorrow. :)
