Old Navy is not usually one of my stops. However, my shopping buddy wanted to go to check out their shorts, so I chose a few items to pass the time in the fitting room. I was pleasantly surprised that a size o fit me! I still cannot believe it! I just checked the online reviews, and most claim that these run small...some ladies even suggest ordering two sizes larger! Score! I am wearing a size o regular, but there is even a size o petite available.

This top has become one of my favorite casual shirts. I love the look of sheer slub. The one and only current review on Nordstrom's site describes this as "exceptionally thin material, almost sheer." The reviewer also goes on to say "It is clingy, unattractive and most women I know would never wear such sheer clothing in public." Clearly that reviewer has a different meaning for "sheer" than I do. You can hardly see through to the black cami that I am wearing underneath. Although this top will most likely not last for many seasons, I am okay with that since it is a trendy item.

I also wore my new J. Crew belt for the first time today. I love that it can be notched anywhere! Would have preferred a smaller size so that I could wear it higher on my waist, but I will settle for a super discounted low waist belt!

Additional Item Details for Top:
~19" width
~16" length from shoulder to bottom
100% rayon

I was able to catch a good bargain last week...an additional 30% off sale items. I highly suggest you check see chloe shop. She is my source for online sale codes, and I check her "Daily List of Deals" nearly every day.

The gorgeous Chloe made this dress look so good, I had to have it. Just as Chloe had mentioned, athough this is not labeled petite, the length is still decently short. The arms are fairly tight, but do not limit movement. Also, the fabric is surprisingly thick...I do not see myself wearing this in 90+ degree Vegas weather, but perhaps in Seattle this summer.

Additional Item Details for Dress:
~16.5" across waist
~31.75" length
100% cotton

Check out J. Crew's sale belts...a few are left at great prices! I ordered four total, and love them all! Here are the other three:

studded leather belt - alabaster, size small (36.5 inches)
notched denim belt - sand dune, size s/m (39 inches)
whip-snake waist belt - georgia peach, size s (35.75 inches)
