Fit Review! Gather Up Jacket & Still Movement Wrap

April 29, 2018



Hope everyone had a great weekend! Saturday night was date night. We watched Infinity War. It was ah-mazing! Hope to watch it again in IMAX soon. I can't wait for the next installment. The ending was definitely jaw dropping.

Today I have a fit review on the Gather Up Jacket in dusty dawn. For reference I'm 4 feet 11 and typically wear a size 4 in tops. Sometimes a size 2.

also wearing Align Crop (old)

 This jacket feels really soft. That's the first thing I noticed. It's a light to medium weight jacket with ruching detail in the front of the jacket. I asked my husband what he thought of it and he said it looks like it shrunk funny in the dryer. That made me laugh but I can kind of see his point of view. The back reminds me of the Define Jacket but this jacket is more boxy and cropped. Because of this I can size down to a 2 from my usual size 4 in fitted tops. The jacket hit at the hip for me and is very petite friendly.


The one thing I didn't really like are the pockets. The opening is towards the back and not in the front so it's kind of an awkward place. I find myself over shooting the opening and having to try again. The color is a lovely lilac. The sleeves are a bit long and there are no thumbholes. 


Just a bit off topic here, if anyone was wondering, I actually do not wear any make up on these photo shoots. These photos are taken early on the weekends and I try not to wear make up on my off days from work unless I'm heading out on a date night.

Next up is the Still Movement Wrap in heathered quicksand. I'm a huge sucker for quicksand. It's such a pretty mauve pink with a hint of coral.

Has thumbholes!

This is a very casual loose fitting wrap that you can definitely size down in. It is made of a cotton blend. I didn't find it to be as soft as I hoped for. It feels a little bit on the stiff side. 


The hood is definitely oversized

The back of the wrap isn't very flattering when your arms are down at the sides. When my hands were in the pockets, the two slits in the back would flare open which made it look much more flattering.




It's a very cute wrap but I kind of wished it had a zipper, but then it wouldn't be a wrap, it would be another hoodie. I did like the mesh like detail along the arms and back to keep you cool.


I ended up returning both. I think the full price is a little steep for these two items, but may change my mind if I see them pop up on WMTM. 

That's all for me. Hope everyone has a fabulous Monday!
