Dressing Room Reviews: Saks and OOTD

This Marc by Marc Jacobs dress in an ethnic diamond print was so cute in person that even though it was full price I had to try it on. They were out of the 8 so I grabbed the 6 and it was plenty roomy. This style runs large. And I can't seem to find the above anywhere online. I've found a few similar ones in the same lovely print.

Next I tried on a few Marc by Marc Jacobs cardigans.
This Sofi Belted sweater reminded me of the western/Aztec inspired prints I would admire at long-closed Century III Mall chain stores (I *think* it was called Capezio like the dance shoe company but my memory is fuzzy). I tried on a size medium. And although it was true to size, it was sort of a nightmare on me. Regardless, the quality of the weaving and the saturated colors were very striking in person. It is available here and here.
The Tracy Pointelle Sweater comes in both ivory and black. Ivory was on the sale rack and really lovely. This is a size medium. See it in black here.
What I wore that day. Two Paths Trench from Anthropologie, See by Chloe paisley print shift dress.

Oh wooow, the Marc Jacobs dress looks amazing on you! The print and color and even the slight sweetheart neckline is just perfection! And I am SUPER JEALOUS of your Two Paths trench!

That belted sweater is so cool but not something I think I could pull off haha

I am loving the Marc dress and the pointelle sweater very much. You know, sales should be starting soon -- I seem to recall first mark downs coming shortly after tax season. You look great in your OOTD too!

The votes of confident on the MBMJ dress make it hard to wait! But I must. :) Thank you gretchen, amy kelinda, and Carole! I am definitely going to stalk the sales.

Kaye, I love the sweater in theory but the shape was a big mess on me. Maybe it would work on someone who has lithe limbs and what not?
