Review: Geo eyelet by LOFT

What: Geo eyelet skirt by LOFT


Season: Spring 2015

Material: 100% cotton eyelet and lining.


Quality: Excellent! Loving the eyelets, the feel of cotton (instead of polyester) on the skin. Mdeium weight, bright color…all ingredients to keep me happy 😉


Fit: True to size to slightly large.  I could have sized down for my waist but feel the hip area would have be snug. I’d say go your regular size and tailor the waist if need be.


Sissi’s verdict: Keeper!

Do you agree? Please share!

Weekend: Yes, it will get better

As I reminisce about Fall 2013 when I had to force myself to smile so that my baby brother would not get down on himself, I now agree.  Life may get unbearable, sometimes you may feel like you cannot take another day, another hour, another minute. But hang on, just hold on. Time will pass and it will get better.

Review: Houndstooth for fall

Stopped by the Crew for the promo on full price items and saw the asymmetrical houndstooth skirt and matching regent blazer.  My review below.

Sissi’s Weekly Review – 17th September 2014


What: Asymmetrical houndstooth skirt and matching regent blazer by J.Crew

Season: Fall 2014

Material: 100% wool outer, 100% poly lining for both

Quality: Excellent.  The wool is warm and high quality.  The colors are pretty dark, perfect for Fall and Winter.  May seem a little matronly, depending on how you pair it.

Fit: True to size.  If you are between sizes at the Crew, I’d advise to go with your larger size because of the straight A-line.  I LOVE the zippers as they add attitude to the simple cut.  Am stalking the cream and burgundy colors for the sales 🙂 I feel the skirt (or the blazer) will complement any of those vibrantly colorful tops from the crew, a nice toner aside from the usual blacks, greys and blues.


Sissi’s Verdict: Keeper…the promo is good but you may want to hold for sale, if it lasts 🙂  Have you tried on either item? Please share!
