I kind of like the idea of them... but there's something not right. It looks kind of try hard & in my mind that's the opposite of what AA is about, so it doesn't really fit. I dunno though, has anyone bought them?

i think if you're going to get creative with it and wear it a lot then it could be worth getting, but from experience with AA stuff like that I would say it's a bit of a waste

it's something you could probably DIY for much cheaper

i have one of those scarves that you can wear as all the different kinds of shirts etc and i almost never wear it

Chrissy, do you mean the circular scarf? I have one and I only wear it as scarf and cape like cover up. I wanted to get it because of the versatility but I never came up with more ways top wear it.

No, I actually have the circle scarf too and get a lot of wear out of it the same way...

I'm thinking of those scarves (I don't know if they even still sell them this way, I bought it back in 2005) that were basically just a single piece of fabric with two unattached ends (like a traditional scarf), and they would play a video in the store of how you could wear it as a tube top, and as a bunch of other different incarnations of a top if you were creative, or you could wear it as a turban etc.
I think I wore it as a top once or twice but it was too much of a hassle because it constantly needed readjusting

I got a few items for my summer vacation. The high-waisted stretch twill shorts in black.

Me wearing them


The interlock mini in the bright pink shade that isn't on the site for some reason. I already have them in green and black and I love them.

And the basic v neck tee in white. I live it their tees.

I just bought the silky shirred waist skirt in cream (doesn't come with the bow). It's super hot here and I needed a light skirt. Actually I wanted the chiffon version but they didn't have it and I didn't want to wait for it. Also, this one is a little cheaper.

Velony - I tried the chiffon one on in store today and it's completely see through. You definitely need a slip or something underneath it.

How often do they tend to restock unavailable items?

I've got my eye on the oversized chiffon button up in white, but it's out of stock.

Velony, I still really want the chiffon version though-mainly because I like the chiffon cobalt color a lot more than the silky peacock-colored one. I might try to find a simple black slip to wear underneath.
