Fit Review Friday! Blissful Zen Sweater So Merlot & Midnight Navy / Vinyasa Scarf Heathered Auburn

Happy Friday everyone! This week has been a rough week for me. I've been on a shopping spree the past few days just trying to distract myself. So my one item a month has totally gone out the window. I'll try and get back on track next month. I'm at least still doing my Alexia Clark workouts.

For reference I'm 4 feet 11 and typically a size 4 in Lululemon's tops.

I've been really curious about this sweater and wanted to see it for myself after reading the reviews. It seems like people either love it or hate it. I really love the color so merlot, but didn't really like the design of the sweater too much. From the front it reminds me of religious robes! The merino wool is actually not as soft as I expected and it's also on the thin side. It wasn't scratchy, but it just didn't feel luxurious. 

The slit really does go all the way up to the armpit, and this unfortunately was a deal breaker for me. I don't think I would wear this out casually. So back it went. 

Sizing on this was a little tricky for me. I ordered a size 2 and 4 to see which one I would prefer. If I'm wearing just a tank top underneath, the size 2 is perfectly fine. However if I put on a short sleeve tee, it felt too tight in the armpit area and the size 4 felt better. But the size 4 from the back looks completely shapeless. Between the two colors, I think midnight navy looked better on me, but so merlot on its own is such a gorgeous color. In the end I decided to return both sweaters. I wasn't 100% sold on either one. 

 I did however end up keeping the Vinyasa Scarf in heathered auburn. It's super soft and the color is very pretty.

That's it for me! I'm waiting for my Lululemon order to come in, and if this weekend isn't rainy I have another photo shoot coming up. Hope you all have a great weekend!



  1. Love the Vinyasa! I agree on the sweaters, not very wearable!
