We’re going to have a spending moratorium starting in May, so I’m stocking up on practical warm-weather clothes before then. I had a bunch of Chadwick’s coupons, and shopping online is so much faster for me than going to the store, so I bought quite a few things from their site.
Chadwick’s is kind of a mixed bag, style-wise. There are dowdy clothes, cute clothes, and basic, practical clothes. If you know what you’re looking for and what looks good on you, you can make out pretty well. The stuff you have to look out for is the dowdy clothes masquerading as basic, practical stuff. For example, this tank top. What a deal, right? And so practical! Except that if you look closely you’ll realize that it’s kind of shapeless, and their clothes run big anyway. It will probably end up being one of those things you can’t get rid of because it’s so practical, but never wear because it doesn’t look good on you.
Anyway, I was happy with everything I ordered. I got a dress that’s no longer on the site, this shirt in navy, these pants in navy, and these shoes in yellow. The pants are actually way cuter in real life than they are online. There’s a button detail on the cuff and a buckle detail on the back, and they’re just the right length for my short legs.
I wanted to take a picture of the yellow shoes to show how well they go with my green pants (green and yellow! I’m so current!), but Gwen kept rubbing on the shoes and getting in the way. I guess she likes them, too.
