Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. The Short Sweet and Sherpa Jacket arrived. I ordered both XXS and XS to try. The XXS was TOO short. Even on me and I have a fairly short torso. The XS fit better in terms of length and body, but the arms were way too poofy. I hope to have photos up soon to show both sizes. Since neither size is perfect, I'll be returning both. I don't think the full price is worth it, but if I see it on WMTM I might spring for the XS. I did like how warm and cozy it is and it is reversible. I actually liked how both sides looked. It's like two jackets in one. That said it's been super rainy and gloomy which is why I am unable to take photos today. That is why we have a review of Birdies in The Starling instead.
I am always a sucker for nice packaging and right off the bat, the box these shoes came in definitely caught my attention. These are not the kind of shoe boxes I would want to throw away. They're just too pretty. These shoes also come with a very nice linen dustbag.
I went with the latte suede color, because it's a great neutral and easy to match. You can wear it with jeans or dress these up for the office. I've always wanted a pair of suede loafers. The quality on these shoes are excellent. The suede is very soft. The footbed is interesting. They're quilted foam pads that almost feel like you're walking on bubble wrap. The comfort level of these are 100% like you're walking on clouds. They really feel like slippers!
Fit- I purchased these in a size 5. For reference in Allbirds Tree Breezers I fit a 5.5. Rothys The Point I fit a size 5. However size 5 in The Starling is too big for me. The heel kept slipping off. I would need a half size smaller and unfortunately size 5 is the smallest these come in. If these had fit, I would have kept them. I would recommend these, I wish they fit me!
Does anyone have any recommendations for something similar that comes in small sizes? Thanks in advance!! That's it for me. Have a great Monday!
