At least I still have the pictures that I uploaded to Blogger, but I have to recreate my comments. In the meantime I have a post that I have written few days ago but I saved it for later because I was excited to share the new roll out pictures.
So here it goes....
|Chance tee w/Lexington|
I know so many of us have the stripe obsession, and I for one, am always looking for this perfect striped shirt to add to my collection.
Enter Chance, company that evolved around the striped shirt, what a concept!
Perfect striped shirts with a store behind the brand and cool website, of course I was excited to try them. I needed a navy shirt with white stripes, so I decided to try this boatneck in navy.
WTH, I took the plunge. After all, I am an adventurous spirit.
Well, the t-shirt arrived in couple of days in a flat envelope that probably costed no more that $3 to mail, but who is counting?

OK, it is a nice shirt. Feather weight is right, it is what we call in JC lingo tissue weigth, very thin but somehow, probably becasuse it is 100% cotton, not too clingy. What really bothered me was that the seem seemed to be slightly crooked and twisting to the side. This was driving me bonkers when I first tried it on.
I felt so duped. The shirt is really nothing special and I doubt I would select it in the blind trial. But I have already paid $10 for shipping and I would have to pay to ship it back with insurance and delivery confirmation. I tried to adjust the wonky seam and walked around for a while and it seemed to stay in place, more or less. I really like the color, not a very dark navy but with some teal undertones, that I find flattering with my skin tone.
After some deliberations, I decided to keep it, but I am not very impressed and it is unlikely I will be giving them any more 'chances'.
My other try-it-out-just-because purchase was a pair of Corso Como pumps from Nordstrom.
I was looking for a pair with nude/black colorblock, ever since I saw similar Zara's shoes on Atlantic Pacific. I needed leather lining, the heel that is not overly high and reasonable price.
The Corso Como 'Del Quilted' Pump seemed to fit the bill.

|leather lining and soles $90|
The size turned out to be correct. The shoes are very comfortable and the heel is stable. They have a lot of arch support and supple leather lining and leather soles. However, I wasn't thrilled. They seemed to be too wide (I usually don't have that problem) and there was a space on the sides between the shoe and and my feet. I am pretty picky about my shoes and this was a deal breaker, I thought it looked ugly and mumsy. Also I did not like the quilting, I was concerned with that when I ordered and I should have listened to my instincts, they are usually correct.
I decided to return the shoes, no big deal since I knew I will be going to the mall that has Nordstrom in it, anyway.

Overall, the shoes were very comfortable and I feel good about the brand. I will definitely try some other shoes from them, as they seem to be reasonably priced for quality and comfort.
I hope they are not always wide.
