Fit Review- Carbon38 Sayang Collection! Gili Hoodie & Lovina Tank

When I first saw Carbon38's Sayang Collection , I fell in love with the Lovina Tank and Gili Hoodie . I ordered both to try.  For reference I'm 4 feet 11 inches and typically wear a size 4 in Lululemon fitted tops and sometimes a size 2 if it's a loose fit top. For Carbon38's  Sayang Collection  I ordered XS for both tank and hoodie. Gili Hoodie  XS This is a very loose fitting hoodie, even at size XS I felt there was too much extra fabric all around. The length of the hoodie was fine, but the fabric didn't have a nice drape on me.  It looks a bit too bunchy for my taste. Overall, I was kind of disappointed it didn't fit me better because I did love the macrame detailing in the back. I thought the front of the hoodie looked okay, with the sleeves only a touch too long. I did like the kangaroo pockets in the front, which is why I picked this over the  Legian Pullover . I think if you're a little bit taller than I am, it woul

Popflex Queen's Coat vs Jonathan Simkhai x Carbon38 Mead Jacket

A couple of months ago Popflex released their new Dark Bloom collection. One of the pieces that caught my eye is the Queen's Coat. Pop flex Queen's Coat The price is quite affordable. The coat is $84. The smallest size is a 2 and I don't know if it's petite friendly. Often peplum styles do not work for my short torso. But this jacket looks super cute. It also looks like it's scuba material. I'm unsure if I would find the jacket comfortable to wear. There's also another peplum style hoodie that caught my eye from Carbon38 this week. This one is all gray and a little bit more my style. The Popflex looks a little too frilly for my tastes but it does look really cute. Jonathan Simkhai x Carbon38 Mead Jacket I'm loving the bell sleeves and that it has a hood. But for $355, I'm not sure if it's worth that kind of money.  What do you think of these two peplum jackets? Yay or Nay? My birthday is coming up so I m

Fit Review Friday! Athleta Luxe Stronger Hoodie

Happy December!  I can't believe it's almost the end of the year already.  Today I have for you a super cozy hoodie.  This one is more of an outerwear hoodie since it's lined with faux fur.  I would maybe wear this around the house if I didn't have the heat on. For reference I'm 4 feet 11 and wearing a size XXS in Athleta. Luxe Stronger Hoodie Size XXS  This hoodie is sooooo soft and warm I am seriously thinking about picking up another in the oatmeal color.  The oatmeal version has a gold zipper which makes it super pretty.  The black color comes with regular silver colored zipper.  Wish it was gold or rose gold! Sizing is pretty true to size for me.  If you're in-between sizes I would say size up.  It can be a little tight in the shoulders and armpits otherwise.  It's definitely very slim fit. The sleeves are a little too long for me, but what else is new?  The hoodie itself is very soft.  This is a medium to heavy weight hoodie.

Fit Review! Carbon38 Goldsheep Polonium Leggings & Cozy Up Buttercup Jacket in Black

First up I finally got the Cozy Up Buttercup Jacket in black.  It arrived in the mail today!  My husband got them for me as a surprise. For reference I'm 4 feet 11 inches and usually a size 2 in Lululemon outerwear, but I take a 4 in fitted tops. This jacket is in a size 2 and very comfortable with enough room for layering.  Wearing it unzipped it did not look super big on me, but still oversized mainly because of the collar. I did have a little bit of a hard time getting the collar to lay right because of the asymmetrical zipper.  However once I zipped it up, I think the jacket looked more put together.   Oh, I should have cropped all these photos.  Just ignore the garbage can and coke bottle!  I don't have a plain blank wall for a background, so my closet will have to do! I really like the length on me, it covers my bum completely which is very nice, especially now that we are officially in winter weather here in Boston.  I'm excited to try this j
